Antarctica is one of the isolated regions, away from civilization on Earth, which makes it the most favorable area to conduct a secret research operation or a place where extraterrestrial life would take shelter. UFO whistleblower named “Brian S,” who served in the US navy, testified that he had seen the entrance to a secret alien base and unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in the Antarctic while he served in the US Navy.
On January 2, 2015, Earthfiles reporter and editor Linda Moulton Howe received an email from Brian, who introduced himself as a retired U.S. Navy Petty Officer First Class flight engineer. Then 61-year-old navy personnel joined the US navy in 1977 and retired 20 years later in 1997. He provided Linda with his DD214 documents and other certificates of service, including an Antarctic Service Medal given to him on November 20, 1984.
Brian told Linda that his C-130 crew encountered high strangeness while they were flying cargo and doing rescues in Antarctica from the period of 1984-1985 to 1997. Several times, he and the C-130 crew watched silver discs darting around in the sky over the Transantarctic Mountains that separate East Antarctica from West Antarctica.
Brian and his crew also saw a huge football field-sized hole in the ice only about five to ten miles from the geographic South Pole that was supposed to be an air sampling station but in a no-fly zone.
Linda said that during an emergency medevac crisis, to speed up their trip, the crew flew across that no-fly zone and apparently saw an alleged entrance to what was rumored to be a human and ET science collaboration research base under the ice.
Then, at a camp near Marie Byrd Land, a dozen of scientists disappeared for two weeks and when they reappeared, Brian’s flight crew got the assignment to pick them up. Brian said the scientists would not talk and their faces “looked scared.”
Brian and his flight crew received several orders at different times not to talk and were sternly told, “You did not see the ice hole, you saw nothing.” But Brian was never asked to sign an official non-disclosure statement. He is convinced that non-humans were and probably are now working on this planet.
He said in his email to Linda: “Talk among the flight crews was that there is a UFO base at the South Pole and some of the crew heard talk from some of the scientists working at the pole that EBAs (extraterrestrial biological entities) worked with the scientists beneath that air sampling camp large ice hole near the pole.”
Below is a transcript of the interview that took place between Linda Howe and Brain S at the KGRA radio station on September 11, 2017:
Linda: Let’s start by unfolding chronologically. You were assigned to Antarctica around 84 to 85 and you were in the C-130 crew. Can you tell me about the first high-strangeness event that occurred? You were based out of McMurdo and you got an emergency medevac call. Can you tell me what happened?
Brian: From what I remember, our crew was getting ready that morning. We were preparing to go down to the airfield and preflight the aircraft, loading it for our mission. Our mission that day was not going to the South Pole, but rather a science resupply somewhere on the western side of the continent.
It was a short flight, probably an hour and a half to 45 minutes to the science party that had been deployed. However, we received a change of mission when we went to operations. We were told to take one of our model aircraft, fuel it up to maximum capacity, fly to the South Pole, and then top off the fuel again before flying to Davis [Station] for a medevac of someone who had become injured and needed to be taken off the continent immediately.
We arrived at the South Pole without incident. The flight was normal and no cargo was loaded onto the aircraft. We had an extra couple of people on the crew, one of them being our corpsman, and our flight surgeon was also brought on the aircraft. They would be responsible for taking care of the patient after we picked them up and all the way back to McMurdo.
While I was fueling up the aircraft at the South Pole, our navigator was plotting a course from the South Pole to Davis. I did not know that we were going to deviate from the original plan until we were already deviating. The pilot asked our navigator, “Where are we going now? We’re not going where we thought we were going.”
We were directed to fly a certain course, which happened to be going right over an air sampling station, which was approximately five to ten miles further on from the South Pole. This area was not a normal transit zone for our squadron, and the captain asked the crew or the navigator about the no-fly zone. If we could go through that new flight no-fly zone, we would be able to save time on this medevac issue. That discussion was happening after we took off.
As a crew, we decided to take the direct route to Davis instead of deviating 20 miles around the air sampling station, which is approximately what they required us to do if we were to go in that direction.
So, we decided to fly right over it. We took off from the South Pole and, remember, the altitude at the South Pole is somewhere between 11,000 and 12,000 feet, so we were climbing at full fuel load out of the South Pole.
We were going to be climbing to about 25,000 feet for our first altitude and then, as we burned off fuel, we would become lighter and be able to climb higher, which also allowed us to get better fuel efficiency out of our engines and extend our range a bit. We took off and were climbing, and about five to ten miles out, someone decided to look out the window instead of looking at their instruments and the radar.
The navigator noticed and said, ‘Hey, there’s this big dark spot out here.’ So, we ended up flying not directly over it, but somewhat offset, so that we could look out the left side of the aircraft and it was down at about a 45-degree angle and there was this large opening in the ice where the air sampling station was supposed to be.”
Linda: Just a second, Brian, because I remember asking you in our interview how big you estimated it to be and if it looked somewhat structured.
Brain: I estimated that you could have flown one of our aircraft into it. The wingspan of our aircraft is around 135-138 feet wide, so it would have had to have been large enough to accommodate that wingspan. But it was probably more the size of a football field if you can imagine that…
One thing I want to mention is that when we were flying over there, we could see lines in the ice or snow, as if someone had driven through with a vehicle, such as a snowmobile or one of the tractored vehicles called ice cats. These tracks seemed to be a route back and forth from the South Pole station to an opening that we could clearly see from our altitude.
It was very distinct, and anything that makes a line in the ice is immediately recognizable. However, it was still supposed to be a no-fly zone and it did not make sense to our pilot. The hole was estimated to be at least 300 feet in diameter, about the size of a football field.”
Linda: Can you describe the kind of rumor talk that you were exposed to after sitting down with people and talking? The guy who showed up and told you all to keep your mouth shut, yeah.
Brian: I was going to talk about that. I want to finish what our mission was to Davis and then the trip back to the South Pole to refuel…We ended up getting to Davis about four hours later. We landed and were sitting on the ground with the engine still running. They brought out the person who was injured, we loaded them on the aircraft, got turned around, set power, and took off.
We were on our way back to the South Pole when we started to get near that same opening we had crossed by when we were going to Davis. We got within a certain distance, I think it was within 25 miles or something. The reason I remember that is because our navigator said, ‘okay, we’re coming up on that opening again’ because the navigator tracks our distance and position all the time.
He wasn’t part of the squadron, but he was dressed in the regular green fatigues that everybody wore down there when they weren’t on flight status. He came in, had his parka on and his stocking cap, and sat down. He took off his jacket and looked at all of us and said, “Okay, so you guys went through the no-fly zone north of the pole and violated that airspace restriction.”
Our aircraft commander said, “Yeah, we did. We thought it was prudent that we not waste any time and shave some time off our flight time to get to the medevac that was at Davis. We were told it was important and not to waste any time, so we made the decision to fly over that air sampling station.”
Like we were talking earlier, there was no reason why we couldn’t fly over that area because we were going to be so high up that our exhaust from the engines wouldn’t have mattered. The gentleman basically looked around at all of us sitting at the table and looked at each one of us and said, “Okay, gentlemen, what you saw, you did not see. You were not over that area and you will not ever talk about this again.” There was no repercussions or any threat like, “If you do talk about it, this or that is going to happen.”
We didn’t think anything of what it might be at that time, but later on, during missions to the south pole, our crew stopped and we had to actually spend some time there because we had some dignitaries and VIPs that wanted to do a tour of the south pole facility. We were told, “Okay, just shut down your engines and leave someone on the airplane to watch it and fuel up again for your return trip to McMurdo.”
We all went into the dome at the south pole. Back then, there was a big, huge geodesic dome that had buildings inside of it that the team and scientists that stayed at the south pole lived in. We all went inside and they had these large mill vans or the SEA vans that you see on container ships, like big containers.
They had made those into buildings, so there were two-story ones all over. One of the two-story ones was a bar or a club, so we went up there and we were sitting around talking, drinking sodas, and trying to get warm. There were some civilians in there, I assume they were scientists.
One of my loadmasters happened to overhear one of them saying something about the operation or what was going on out at the air sampling station. Later, we were talking to other crews and they had heard similar things when they were at the south pole but they heard that there were “visitors” that they were going out to interact with.
So, at this point, we were all confused and trying to piece together what could be happening out at that air sampling station. We started to think that maybe there was some sort of secret government operation or research happening out there involving extraterrestrial life.
