WINGED HUMANOID Close Encounter in Wayne, Illinois

 

A Wayne, Illinois resident had an encounter with a winged humanoid while traveling near his home. The humanoid flew in front of his vehicle without the use of its wings, a common trait with these incidents.

I talked by telephone to an eyewitness 'AM' about an encounter that he had with a winged humanoid in mid-September 2022 at the intersection of Smith Rd. and Mountain Ash Dr. in Wayne, Illinois.

It was approximately 10 PM local time while 'AM' and a passenger was traveling south on Mountain Ash Dr. when he reached the intersection with Smith Rd. He states that a 6-7 foot long black human-like figure swiftly swooped in front of his vehicle, about 10 feet in front of him. The wings and arms were tucked against the body and it quickly glided from east to west very close to the road. The headlights illuminated the winged humanoid.

The encounter was so fast that he could not make out facial features, but the body and head were very human-like.

'AM' had not previously been aware of the winged humanoid phenomenon in the Chicagoland area, and he found out later after searching for an answer to his encounter.

There had been another sighting very nearby in Carol Stream, Illinois in 2020.

'AM' was very forthcoming in retelling the incident. His interest in the subject, since he is an eyewitness, should prove useful to our future investigation of this phenomenon. Lon

Multiple Witnesses Report FLYING HUMANOID Over Waukegan, Illinois Lakefront

 

A family of 6 members observed a black flying humanoid above them near the Lake Michigan lakefront in August 2020 in Waukegan, Illinois. Another sighting was reported nearby a few months later.

I recently received the following eyewitness account:

"Hi...let me start off by saying this. I believe that someone or something flies around Waukegan, Illinois. It was August 2020. My father had just passed away and the lakefront has / will always be a big part of our lives, from a kid until my 30s. I've lived by the lake and it has always had a strange feeling to it.

My mother, 2 nieces, and 2 nephews were with us and we decided to go to another side of where you normally go to the lake, just as something different. You know, exploring just trying to clear our minds after Covid and the loss of our loved one. We had heard the stories about the winged humanoids. I've made sure the kids know that there are things we can't explain in the area.

In the middle of a hot Saturday afternoon in Waukegan we all looked up to see what actually looked like 'Ironman' in the sky. We didn't see wings, just a dark black shape of a man. It was not normal. We all joked it was the 'Mothman,' but it didn't click until I just read the story of Bowen Park in Waukegan which happen a couple of months after our experience in 2020, not too far away from the lake and power plant.

I do believe in ghosts and tons of other things. I know things around here are weird. I don't know if this helps, but I finally had to tell someone. Thanks" SM

NOTE: I talked to the eyewitness in order to get more information about the sighting. The description was of a 6-7 foot long human-like being with a small head. There were no visible wings, but there was detail to the body even though it was solid black in color. The witnesses could make out the body contour, even well-defined chest (pectoral) muscles as it flew over them. The speed was not constant as it would hover occasionally. It did seem to be a living being since the legs and arms would change position.

The location was about 500 feet from the lakefront on Market St. just south of the Waukegan Harbor. It was a clear sunny day at about 2 PM. There were 6 witnesses who all saw the flying humanoid and similarly described it. Lon

2nd Incident: O'HARE 'BATMAN' Observed Shuffling Across Street at Fire Station #3

 

Chicago City Fireman at O'Hare Station #3 took one of the engines to get fueled. As they are approaching the fire station on their way back they observe the 8-foot-tall red-eyed 'Batman' shuffle across the road.

The following report was received by Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team investigator Manuel Navarette and posted at UFO Clearinghouse:

"I was at work at station #3 at about 0245. As part of the normal routine, we take the engines to get fuel at the maintenance yard. It’s about 2 miles or so one way and the entire endeavor takes about 45-60 minutes depending on if you have to wait.

As we were headed back, we were approaching the firehouse when we saw something move across the street, it walked in a sort of shuffle as we approached. We saw two glowing red eyes that looked right at us and then disappeared. As we continued to approach the location our headlights fell upon a large black figure that looked like a man wearing black clothing, except he was at least 8 feet tall, super, super thin, and had a large pair of bat-like wings. It took off into the air and was gone within a second or two and we lost it in the night sky.

It scared the living hell out of everyone in the engine and when we got back to the firehouse, we all went outside to look for it but found nothing. It was the damndest thing I have ever seen in my life."

Investigators Notes:

This is part of the ongoing investigation looking into the initial report of a Chicago Firefighters sighting of a winged humanoid at Chicago O’Hare International airport. The witness was able to convey sightings from fellow firefighters at his station that was told to him the night of his sighting. They are being presented separately and attempts are being made to contact the original witnesses of each report. As the investigation progresses, updates will be posted to the website and passed along to the members of the Phantoms and Monsters Fortean Research Team.
