More Information

Holloman Air Force Base has the highest number of UFO sightings in the world. When one commander retired, he reported that the base had hosted an alien “guest” for 3 years. Nagatani has added a soldier, an alien, a gorilla and 3 F-15s (models) to his photograph of the base’s entrance. Less well known, the chimpanzee testing programs at Holloman Aeromedical Research Laboratory have been reproached by animal protection organizations for their experiments on chimps taken from Equatorial Africa.
