     “UFOs: The Secret Story” is a 90-minute lecture and slide show concerning the U.S. government’s secret response to UFOs, and is based on thousands of Air Force, FBI and CIA documents declassified via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), as well as the testimony of 120 former or retired U.S. military personnel interviewed by Hastings.

The documents confirm, beyond a reasonable doubt, that UFOs do exist and, despite repeated public denials over the years by official spokesmen, these mysterious objects are of the greatest concern to the highest levels of the U.S. Air Force and the intelligence community.

A number of the documents refer to UFOs repeatedly violating highly sensitive airspace over nuclear weapons sites, including the Los Alamos National Laboratory, where nuclear weapons are designed. Other documents concern UFOs hovering above nuclear missile launchers or nuclear bomb storage bunkers. Still others refer to attempted aerial intercepts of UFOs by military jet fighters. So far as is known, all of these attempts have been unsuccessful.

Hastings appeared on CNN’s Larry King Live on July 18, 2008, together with former U.S. Air Force officers who had been involved in nuclear weapons-related UFO incidents. Two of them, missile launch officer Robert Salas and targeting officer Robert Jamison, say that an entire “flight” of ten Minuteman missiles mysteriously malfunctioned just as a UFO was sighted hovering above the flight’s launch control facility, outside of Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, in March 1967. Hastings has interviewed other Air Force missile personnel who describe identical events occurring at other Air Force missile bases.

The King program is now on YouTube.

Hastings, an independent UFO researcher and lecturer, says that his interest in UFOs also began in 1967, when he was present at the air traffic control tower at Malmstrom, during a two-week period of intermittent UFO activity at the base’s missile sites. “One night, five UFOs were tracked on radar for several minutes”, he recounts, “and jets were launched to intercept them. I later learned from Air Force sources that as the jets closed in, the UFOs performed a vertical ascent and left the area at enormous speed—far beyond the capability of any aircraft.”

Since that incident, Hastings has devoted countless hours researching UFOs and our government’s covert response to them. He has spoken at over 500 colleges and universities since 1981, in an effort to bring to the public the intriguing information that he and other researchers have obtained. His critically-acclaimed book, UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites is available at
“I am not condemning any government agency for its policy of secrecy regarding UFOs,” says Hastings, “but I believe that the American people, and the rest of the world, should be given the facts.”

From 1988 to 2002, Hastings was employed as a laboratory analyst by Philips Semiconductors in Albuquerque, NM. He is now retired and may be reached for an interview at

In addition to the nuclear weapons-related cases, I will be discussing the so-called “Phoenix Lights” of March 13, 1997. Former Arizona Governor Fyfe Symington has now confirmed that the “lights” were actually attached to a huge, boomerang-shaped UFO, perhaps a mile wide, which he personally witnessed. (At the time of the sightings, the Air Force spokesman at Luke AFB had officially dismissed the lights as flares that had been dropped from A-10 Warthog aircraft during a training exercise.)
