Felix Moncla was an Air Force pilot who disappeared under mysterious circumstances while pursuing a UFO on November 23, 1953. To this day there is much speculation as to the ultimate fate of Felix Moncla. What is not in question is that Moncla disappeared after being given orders to pursue a UFO.
On November 23, 1953, an unidentified flying object was picked up on radar over the area of Soo Locks. Moncla was ordered to scramble his jet from Kinross AFB to investigate the matter. On board was Robert Wilson who managed the jet's radar. Witnesses reported that both the UFO and Moncla's jet were visible on radar as blips. Witnesses also reported seeing the two blips merge into one blip which then disappeared. Neither Moncla, Wilson, nor the jet was ever seen again.
The Air Force claimed that Moncla's jet collided with another plane. Interestingly, there have been three different types of planes put forth as being the plane the jet collided with. Many to this day reject the Air Force's explanation and believe the UFO picked up on radar that November day in 1953 to be a genuine, unknown craft. Felix Moncla is presumed dead.
