George Filer saw his first UFO in 1962 when he was flying a tanker plane for the Air Force to refuel fighters over England. The control tower sent his plane to investigate a UFO on the radar, near Stonehenge. His plane dove from 33,000 feet to 1,000 feet to find it.
His second encounter came a few years ago, from the bedroom of his Medford Lakes home, which faces Briarwood Lake. “I woke at 4 am”, he said, “The bedroom was filled with light pouring in from the window. I saw a UFO surfacing. It looked like a submarine coming out of the water, a blue ionization.”
Filer spent 20 years in the Air Force, logging over 5,000 hours in the air. For most of his career he was an intelligence officer. He briefed generals in Vietnam after receiving UFO reports over the DMZ.
Since he retired, Filer has become East Coast director of the Mutual UFO Network, the nation’s largest UFO organization. From his home office he edits a weekly internet newsletter called Filer’s Files.
