Fatal UFO/Aircraft Encounter
Date: Summer - 1943
Location: North of Prescott, AZ
Pierre Perry, president of Arizona’s Copper Mountain Mining Corporation was on his way to inspect a certain mineral deposit. Journeying with Perry were an anonymous prospector and Isidro Montoya a Mexican miner. While fording the Agua Fria River on horseback, Montoya who was in the lead shouted, “El Diablo, El Diablo!” (The Devil). “Overhead”, states Perry in his affidavit, “a most terrific drama was unfolding that lasted only a few minutes.
A military plane was in sight, so where two large unidentified flying objects that looked like balloons without baskets. They were luminous and bright as the sun. The UFOs stood still as if watching for the plane to approach, and then pounced towards it. At the same time, they projected a violent luminous ray that could be compared with the large beam of a lighthouse.” The coherent energy beam hit its target and brought it down. The three onlookers saw the pilots eject from the plane, but another beam from the unknown craft caused the parachutes to catch fire and the men plummeted to their deaths. “The two bodies were later found,” adds Perry. While unnerved and muttering, Isidro Montoya was by no means a stranger to such visions. After crossing himself he reportedly told Perry that he had seen “El Diablo” many times before. The affidavit goes on to indicate that a third spherical intruder joined the two existing UFOs and the trio vanished south toward Mexico at breathtaking speed.
