     The Maury Island UFO Incidentis a bizarre mystery case spanning several months in the summer of 1947 in the Puget Sound area of Washington State and involved the Air Force’s first military plane crash. This book presents new evidence, never seen before photos and new information on one of Washington states most intriguing mysteries. The mystery occurred two weeks before Roswell and involved three facets. The first the story by Harold Dahl of UFOs seen over Maury Island, the second Kenneth Arnold’s sighting of UFOs over Mt. Rainier and the third, the tragic crash of a B-25 Bomber and the deaths of two military intelligence officers. As the Air Force separated from the Army August 1st 1947 this was the first crash and fatalities of the Air Force. This book focuses on the crash site of the B-25 Bomber, a first ever interview with a local who was first on the scene and a newly discovered news photo of the crash site, believed to be the only photo available of the historical crash. “When I met Charlette LeFevre and Philip Lipson in 2007, I found them to be enthusiastic researchers who were energetically pursuing and impartially sifting through the facts about the Maury Island incident. This book is the result of their efforts. It presents new evidence and new analysis, and every reader will find it intriguing and informative.” — Larry Haapanen, Ph.D, the last UFO investigator for the Fourth Air Force.
