As noted in Part 3 of Isaac Koi’s “Best UFO Cases” article (i.e. in the Part entitled “Existing lists by various individuals”), Ronald Story has written an interesting book entitled “UFOs and the Limits of Science” (discussed in some detail in PART 6:    Consensus lists : Ronald Story’s poll (1979)) which focuses around a list “of ten ‘best’ cases’”. He selected these 10 cases since they “to me represent the strongest UFO evidence on record”.

The relevant cases selected by Ronald Story as the 10 “best” cases were (see Footnote 3.48):

1. Newport News, Virginia, 14 July 1952 (Nash-Fortenberry case) (Case 44 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article)
2. Lakenheath AFB, England, 13-14 August 1956 (multiple radar-visual) (Case 21 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article)
3. Levelland, Texas, 2-3 November 1957 (Car stop cases) (Case 16 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article)
4. Boianai, New Guinea, 26, 28 June 1959 (Father Gill case) (Case 15 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article)
5. Whitefield, New Hampshire, 19 September 1961 (Betty & Barney Hill case) (Case 2 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article)
6. Exeter, New Hampshire, 3 September 1965 (Incident at Exeter) (Case 29 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article)
7. Ravenna, Ohio, 17 April 1966 (Spaur chase case) (Case 73 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article)
8. Mansfield, Ohio, 18 October 1973 (Coyne helicopter case) (Case 25 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article)
9. Tehran, Iran, 18 September 1976 (Iranian jet case) (Case 47 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article)
10. Wellington/Kaikoura, New Zealand, 31 December 1978 (New Zealand film multiple radar-visual) (Case 57 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article)

In addition to chapters devoted to each of the above 10 cases, Ronald Story’s book contains further chapters devoted to discussing various issues. A chapter entitled “UFO photographs” (see Footnote 3.49) identifies 4 photographic cases which Story states “I have chosen as the ‘best’, in terms of their combined strangeness and reliability”. Those cases are:

1. Wellington/Kaikoura, New Zealand, 31 December 1978 (“the most puzzling picture sequence of all”) (Case 57 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article);
2. McMinnville, Oregon, 11 May 1950 (Trent case photos) (Case 17 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article);
3. Great Falls, Mont, 5 or 15 August 1950 (Mariana film) (Case 41 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article);
4. Trindade Island, Brazil, 16 January 1958 (IGY photos) (Case 26 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article).

Web Resources

There is a rapid turnover of UFO material on the Internet. Many links to material on UFO websites quickly become out of date. Therefore, instead of giving many links to specific webpages I have instead included below a search box which can be used to search various leading UFO websites at the same time. You can then click on tabs at the top of the search results to list only results from forums, only results from websites I have labelled as "skeptical" etc. I have included tabs for a couple of specific websites that I find particularly useful, including the valuable archives of the UFO UpDates email discussion List. The relevant websites are all listed in the discussion of the "UFO Searchillion" search engine in Section 2.4 of the "Free UFO Researcher Starter Pack" and continues to evolve...

 

The relevant search box is one of the two main tools on this website which are intended to help reduce the amount of reinvention of the wheel within UFOlogy. The other main tool is the collection of tables of references to discussion of UFO incidents, personalities and other matters in various books. Those tables can be sorted by author, length and date. I hope these tools are useful.
