A triangle-shaped craft reportedly crash landed on a mountainside in Sanger, California (just outside Fresno) on the night of August 21 2010.
A family who observed the “hard landing” reported the incident to California Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) state section director Jeffrey Gonzalez. According to Gonzalez, while taking the phone report, he heard a woman in the background say, “It’s trying to take off, It’s trying to lift!”
The witnesses claim that the downed craft ascended 30 to 40 feet trying to take off again, but was unsuccessful.
The crash site is private and inaccessible from public roads, which prevented MUFON investigators from reaching the area, but unmarked vehicles allegedly managed to swarm the scene shortly after the incident.
From a public vantage point, Gonzalez reported seeing something resembling an arc welding light coming from the crash site during the evening, which led him to believe that the individuals who arrived in the unmarked vehicles were either attempting to repair the craft or dismantle it.
The following morning, Gonzalez was able to see scorch marks on the ground, and surprisingly, the craft was still there. He supposedly has video footage of the crash site and the “stingray-shaped” craft, as he described it, and will make the video available after it has been processed. According to Gonzalez the videos are being transferred to his computer, but are taking longer than usual because the camera he used doesn’t have a digital output.
The witnesses have called Gonzalez in the past, and they apparently see frequent UFO activity in their area. (A video posted on Youtube shows a triangle shaped craft flying over Sanger, the day after the craft).
Additional information on the above intriguing case indicates that the main witness, “Justin” and his wife and mother had gone outside to see on the side of the mountain what appeared to be a triangle shaped object sitting on the side of the mountain. He said it had white lights on each corner and a bright light underneath in the center with some blue and red lights on the sides. He said the shape was definitely a triangle.
After observing it for a couple of minutes, he said the craft lifted up about 30 to 40 feet as it was trying to take off but could not and the craft again fell to the ground. It attempted to lift off again with no luck and again the craft slammed back down. It did not try to take off anymore.
He even said it looked like the craft was damaged on one side. After a few minutes went by, the 3 witnesses started to see vehicles -- cars and trucks -- arrive at the scene. These vehicles came from over the mountain and from below. He said they just came out of nowhere. He did not know if they were military or not.
By this time it was dark and they see the vehicle’s headlights on the hill and what he says are helicopters flying overhead… but he wasn’t sure. By the time Gonzalez arrived he could only see 3 lights on the hill. At around 2300 he began to videotape other vehicles coming to the site, and on a couple of occasions captured very bright blue flashes of light coming from the area.
Gonzalez stayed in the area all night and claims that in the morning around 5:45 he was able to see what appeared to be a bunch of pine-trees and what seemed to be a house, and then he noticed what looked to him to be a gray or metallic object lying right in front of that house. He said he tried to zoom up but it was still to far away. It was hard to tell the shape of the craft but it eventually it starting taking the shape of a triangle or sting ray in Gonzalez’s eyes. (7).
