Black Triangle Crashes Near Fresno, California
According to reports, a Central Valley California family driving home late in the evening on Saturday, August 21 called MUFON State Section Director Jeffrey Gonzalez's 24-hour hotline to report that a “triangle-shaped craft” had made a "hard landing" onto the side of a mountain outside Fresno, CA.
The mountain is near a facility run by the 144th Fighter Wing of the Air National Guard Base (ANGB) of Fresno.
While taking the hotline report from a male witness, Gonzales says he overheard a female voice in the background saying, "It's trying to take off, it's trying to lift!"
Unmarked vehicles arrived at the site shortly after the hard landing, but MUFON investigators were unable to get near the landing site because the area is inaccessible from public roadways.
What appeared to be an arc welding light was seen at the crash site during the evening and, the next morning, scorch marks were seen on the mountain, as well as a "stingray-shaped" craft near an abandoned shack used by military utility teams. The craft is now gone.
Gonzales shot video of the area, including the craft, and intends to make the video available as soon as it has been processed. At the time of this writing, however, a search of the MUFON website returned no hits for the August 21 Fresno crash.
Some have speculated that what crashed into the mountain near Fresno was a super-secret nuclear-powered aircraft, the TR-3B, code named "Astra" and rumored to have been in operation since the mid-90s. There is some debate about whether the TR-3B is itself a military disinformation scheme intended to obscure the many triangular UFO sighting reports filed each year.
