Winged Being / Large Boomerang UFO Encountered at O'Hare International Airport

The following account was recently forwarded to Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team member Manuel Navarette at UFO Clearinghouse. This is an ongoing investigation and any further evidence will be posted. Manuel did conduct a cursory interview with the witness. Those revelations have been added with the original report:

"I work as a security guard for a local security company and was working at a construction area near O’Hare International Airport. I was just relaxing in my truck listening to a podcast. It was about 1:00 AM (local time) and it had been the usual quiet shift. My shifts there are usually pretty quiet, only the occasional homeless person wandering onto the site or horny teenagers looking for a dark, out of the way place to park.

I was sitting there with the window open when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye that caught my attention. I got out of the truck and went to walk around and see if anyone might have wandered onto the site. The construction site I was on was used to make asphalt and there’s a large grinder to crush rock down and that is where I was walking towards when I again saw movement near the area where the dump trucks are loaded.

I saw a very large, dark figure standing there. It was dark black, but had a pair of large red glowing eyes. It stood at least 7 ½ feet tall and just remained there silently with a large pair of outstretched wings that it slowly flapped open and then shut. I called out to it and then shined my light toward it, when the entire area was lit up in a bright whitish blue light. The light was so bright that I could see the equipment and the lot as clear as the middle of the day.

When I looked again the figure was gone and a really large boomerang shaped ship (craft - UFO) was moving away from the site. The edges of the ship had white lights on it and it was only about 60 feet in the air. It got higher as it moved away and then shot into the sky and was gone in a fraction of a second. I won’t lie, I almost sh*t my pants when I saw this and ran back to my truck where I rolled up the windows and locked the doors. I was scared...very, very scared, but stayed on post with the truck turned on and the headlights on until about 5 AM when I left.

I served two tours of Afghanistan while in the U.S. Army and have been in combat before and yet I was shaken to my very core after this incident. I only calmed down when I saw the sky getting lighter as the dawn approached. But I’m sure that if it had wanted to hurt me, it would have done it and there’s nothing much I would have done about it. That’s what I saw, I am 150% certain that what I saw was real and not a hallucination. I do not drink and I have never touched a single drug in my entire life. I am not a religious person and don’t believe in things like demons but whatever this was. It was not human and did not belong here. I told my wife about it the next morning and it was her who told me about the things being seen at the airport in the last few years and even showed me this blog on her phone. I’m not sure what I saw but I hope my reporting this to you helps you in finding out what it is."

NOTE: Manuel noted, through a discussion with the witness, that this incident occurred approximately 1400 yards from the Rest Haven Cemetery. We still need to determine the exact date of the sighting and to pinpoint the actual location of the incident. I will update the report as more information is provided. Manuel plans to visit the location in the next few days.

A subsequent session was conducted with 'The Unseen Ones' on 9/28/2021. The ultraterrestrial, known as Uru, acknowledge that it was the entity seen at the location. The UFO (craft) WAS NOT associated with The Unseen Ones. According to Manuel, who has had direct contact with Uru, it was not pleased by the UFO presence. Our team member Jennifer Elsner, who was our initial and continued contact with these ultraterrestrials, states that she was told that Uru was indeed the entity encountered by the security guard. This is the 2nd O'Hare humanoid report that we have received that was associated with UFO activity.

This is the first reported sighting of a winged humanoid since the well-documented July 22, 2021 incident at O'Hare International Airport. At the time, at least 7 TSA security personnel and several carrier supervisors were observed approaching the winged being (Uru) by a minimum of 12 other witnesses.

Since that incident, Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research has been in contact with The Unseen Ones faction several times, including 2 personal encounters by Manuel Navarette and Tobias Wayland (please refer to the September 10, 2021 interview at Arcane Radio). You can find more information during my recent questions & answers video chat.

Any additional information will be provided on this blog. Stay tuned. Lon

2nd Photo Confirmed As 'Ultraterrestrial' By 'The Unseen Ones'


Hey folks...a photo has surfaced that has been confirmed by 'The Unseen Ones' as that of a winged ultraterrestrial. This photo was also captured several years ago by David Eckhart at his home near Pensacola, Florida. I found it among a large cache of images forwarded to me by David over the past decade or so.

Please bear with us as more revelations come forward. I realize that most of what I am presenting to you seems absolutely nonsensical. But, for those of you who have followed me over the years, you know that I'm not a conspiracy theorist and thoroughly investigate reports and information before I present it to the public. I then let you decided for yourself. I'm simply seeking the truth. Lon

Two Reported 'Winged Being' Encounters in Mineral Point, Wisconsin

The witness 'JE' experienced 2 separate encounters with cryptid winged entities near her residence in Mineral Point, Wisconsin, located in Iowa County in the southwest area of the state.

JE's 1st encounter occurred during an afternoon in early Spring 2019. JE had been feeling spiritually vulnerable and was attempting to improve her personal protection with the Archangels Michael and Raphael. At the end of the breezeway, that extended from her front door, there was a window of which JE would use to access the flat roof.

As she approached and looked out of the window, she observed 2 crouching beings with feathered wings facing the large St. Mary's & St. Paul's Catholic Church a few blocks behind her apartment building at 224 Davis Street. These beings seemed to be 'arguing with each other.' Both of the figures were stone grey in color and solid like concrete. JE immediately thought that these were representations of St. Michael and St. Raphael.

As she continued watching, they stood up to a height of 7-8 feet, but seemed to be 'fading in and out' of a non-corporeal / corporeal state. They then fully extended their wings to a span of 10 feet of so, and flew off towards Catholic Church.

The 2nd encounter took place in the Autumn of 2019 while JE was walking her dogs late at night, between 1-2 AM local time. She was in an alley way near her residence heading towards High St., the main thoroughfare in this small town. She soon noticed small lights / orbs descending around her.

As she approached the steps near the Mineral Point Opera House at 139 High St. her attention was drawn to, what she described as, a large Gargoyle-like entity perched on top of the building across the street. The being's claws were extended off the edge and the massive feathered wings were unfurled to a span of 20-25 feet. The entity was solid grey in color with a heavy girthed body. The face was described as a cross between a Bulldog and a Lion with pointed ears and a long snout, but having a snub nose.

JE watched the being for 2 minutes or so after its dark eyes seemed to focus its gaze on her. It then stood up and displayed a very tall body with wings fully extended. It began to move off the edge in an attempt to descend, but disappeared into the ether.

After the initial shock of encountering this impressive winged creature, JE was thankful for the opportunity to observe it. She recalled her trips to Paris and Notre Dame, stating that this being looked like a 'real-life' Gargoyle.

As a new member of the Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team, JE now believes that her encounters with these winged beings was an inevitable precursor to her involvement on the team. Moreover, she did not contact us until 2 years later and that she had no previous knowledge of the winged humanoid phenomenon in the Chicago / Lake Michigan region. In fact, JE only discovered us after reading my book 'Alien Disclosure: Experiencers Expose Reality.' She felt that a series of ultraterrestrial encounters that she had experienced at home closely resembled those of David Eckhart. That is when she reached out to me.

JE's unique gifts and abilities soon became apparent to me, which led to her ultimately becoming a member of the team. Lon

NEW 'Winged Ultraterrestrial' Engagement by Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research Member!


As many of you may know, the Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research teams has begun to engage with the ultraterrestrial collective (The Unseen Ones) that is responsible for the winged humanoid sightings throughout Chicago, the Lake Michigan region and, more recently, the O'Hare International Airport.

Last evening, on Friday September 3, 2021, Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team member Manuel Navarette had an encounter and engaged with one of these winged humanoid ultraterrestrials. No details of the incident will be released by me. This is a personal decision that needs to be made by Manuel. If he decides to come forward or not, he will receive my full support and confidentiality.

I feel fortunate to have been a part if the experience, even though I was not physically present. It took a great deal of fortitude and trust to engage with this being. I am very proud of Manny and will support him in his decision, no matter what.

We are in the process of instructing other team members, who are so inclined, to engage with these ultraterrestrials on a direct basis.

This upcoming Friday on an extended Arcane Radio (9PM ET) show at the Beyond Explanation YouTube channel, Tobias Wayland & Manual Navarette will be my guests. This is your opportunity to hear how these profound connections and engagements with a non-human collective are initiated. Join us in the chat! You don't want to miss it! Thanks. Lon

'Winged Being' PHOTO: Recent 'O'Hare Mothman' Revelations & Updates


Hi folks. There has been a lot going on with the Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team recently, especially when it pertains to the 'O'Hare Mothman' sightings.

Yesterday, I posted the following image and description on a few social media outlets:

This photo was taken by David Eckhart a while back. I've had a sense that this was a winged humanoid ever since I first saw it. Last night, our ultraterrestrial contact confirmed that this was indeed a "member of their legion who have been appearing at O'Hare International Airport and locations in the region." My associate and I have recently established contact with 'The Unseen Ones' and continue to advise our team in the hope that a profound discovery will result in full disclosure. These ultraterrestrials have been among us much longer than we ever anticipated. Please continue to follow our progress on and - Thanks

This information garnered a lot of response from readers and followers. I'm hesitant to release further revelations at this time. We have been super busy recording, documenting and following up the past few weeks. Our team will have final say on all public releases in regards to the Chicago & O'Hare sightings.

For those who have been concerned by the ultraterrestrial's use of the term 'legion.' It's simply a word used by the ultraterrestrials to describe their collective. There is no Biblical, spiritual or so-called demonic connection whatsoever. The ultraterrestrial factions consist of many varieties of beings, including Angels.

Please bear with us. I realize that most of what I am presenting to you seems fantastical. But, for those of you who have followed me over the years, you know that I'm not a conspiratorial theorist. I receive the information, present it and let you decided for yourself. I'm simply seeking the truth. Lon

July 22, 2021 'O'Hare Mothman' Incident - More Follow-Up Eyewitness Interviews


The Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team has interview more witnesses who observed the July 22, 2021 winged humanoid incident at O'Hare International Airport.

The following account was reported to Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research and UFO Clearinghouse investigator Manuel Navarette:

The following information was reported to the MUFON CMS on August 10, 2021:

Case - 117223

Occurred - 2021-07-22 00:00

Reported - 2021-08-10 09:14

(Reported 19 Days Later)

Source - MUFON

Summary Tall man with wings and red eyes

Region - Illinois

Country - United States

Distance - Unknown

Altitude - Unknown

Duration - 00:00:00

Shape - Unknown

Detailed Description

I am part of the ground crew for a major air cargo facility at O’Hare and we were working on unloading a cargo plane that had arrived earlier that evening. I was operating one of the lifts that lifts cargo containers down from the plane to the ground. It was about ten at night when the call came over our radios that there was a report of an unknown person being seen on the tarmac near the fence. I began looking around and saw a large man standing approximately fifty feet away from us, near the fence separating us from the road. He must have been close to seven feet tall, but I was not close enough to tell for sure. He was wearing what looked like a black coat and was just standing there. I radioed my supervisor that I saw someone over by the fence and my supervisor ran over to where I was at. By this time the entire ground crew was aware of this man’s presence and was radioing in to their supervisors. It must have been no more than 20 seconds after that that the first of man airport security vehicles showed up. One approached the man from the other side of the fence while another two drove past us and stopped short of the man who by this time was easier to see with the car lights on him. It did not look like any man I have ever seen. He was solid black and had red eyes that must have been reflecting the lights like cats eyes. It also had wings that were now spread open and must have been 15 feet from tip to tip. This man let out a loud screech. It sounded a lot like a barn owl when it tried to warn you away. This man then started flapping its wings and took off, you could hear the sound of the wings as it took off into the air and was gone in seconds. I was honestly scared for my life and started to pray for protection. I know in this world that demons walk among us and I was certain that whatever this thing was, it had to be demonic and an agent of the devil. A lot of my coworkers were also very frightened after this thing took off and many of them ran inside the safety of the plane when it took off. I am certain that this was a demon and it must have been sent here to frighten us.

NOTE: From the information gathered, I suspect that the MUFON CMS report came from another member of the cargo ground crew working with 'EW.' I believe that these were employees of FedEx because of the sighting proximity and distance from the tarmac. As reported previously, the O'Hare management and carrier companies are taking these winged humanoid sightings very serious and have warned all employees to not contact us. We are so grateful for those folks who have come forward and who continue to assist us in our determination to find answers. Lon

Investigators Notes:

I spoke with the witness in regards to his sighting. The witness was at first very hesitant and was not willing to go into much details due to the threat of losing his job. The witness said they were explicitly told to not talk to any media or investigators about any of the events that transpired that night or risk being disciplined, up to and including termination of employment. The witness was assured that his anonymity would be preserved and that no information would be shared with anyone outside of the research team investigating this sighting.

After about a half hour of talking and reassurance, the witness opened up about his sighting and the investigator was able to make some headway in getting information from the witness in regards to his sighting. The witness said he initially contacted the Mutual UFO Network regarding his sighting and then contacted us after seeing UFO Clearinghouse and Phantoms and Monsters run the story about his reported sighting. When asked if he spoke with a MUFON field investigator, the witness said one contacted him via email and they exchanged one or two emails but after that there was radio silence and the investigator did not reach out to him again. The witness did provide information to the investigator regarding the sighting and included a sketch of the creature he reportedly saw. When asked if he could provide a copy of the sketch, the witness said he did not have it but could draw another for me.

When asked about the sighting, the witness said they were unloading a cargo plane that had just recently arrived and that there were about eight other people working both in and out of the place plus one or two supervisors watching over the operation. The witness said someone got on the radio reporting someone was on the tarmac by the fence. That is when the witness looked over and saw the entity. He described it as approximately 6-7 feet tall and thin with a large pair of black wings that were at least 10 feet across and with bright red eyes. The witness says that the entity was standing near the fence and appeared to be observing them and did not appear to move toward them at all. The entity just stood there slowly moving its wings back and forth slowly. According to the witness, the first TSA and Airport Security personnel showed up within 2-3 minutes of the initial sighting and they shined their flashlights directly at the entity. The entity then screeched and began to flap its wings faster and took off into the air. He stated that he saw the entity circle around twice before heading off toward the runways and into the night. When asked why no one took a picture, the witness stated that he was in complete and total shock at what he was observing and the thought of taking a picture had not crossed his mind. He stated that if he had been observed taking a picture, it would have probably been confiscated by his superiors and TSA.

When asked what was told to him after the encounter, the witness stated that they were told to get back to work and not to talk about any of what had just happened. The witness said they were all pulled into a meeting the next day and told that it was nothing more than a large owl or heron and that they were explicitly told not to talk to anyone from the media regarding this sighting and that disciplinary measures would be strictly enforced including termination. The witness said that his direct supervisor along with a company executive were at this meeting and they were told to “forget the entire episode” and focus solely on their work. The witness said the company executive came off with an aggressive stance against the employees involved in the incident and it was he that told the employees that any one who spoke out about the events of the previous night would be dealt with directly by himself and his superiors and that they would be dealt with harshly. 

When asked why he decided to speak out, the witness said he felt it needed to be told that these events are happening and that someone needed to know what he and his coworkers saw that night. When asked if he was scared of losing his job, the witness said he genuinely was and that is why he was going to such extraordinary lengths to protect his identity. It was at this point the witness said he would go no further and the investigator thanked him for his time and concluded the interview.

It is the investigators opinion that this witness does sound credible and does not seem to be attempting to deceive anyone with a fabricated story. The fact that multiple witnesses have come forward to corroborated this sighting has only lent credence to the validity of this sighting.

NOTE: This information is consistent with the reports I have regularly received from a confidential informant who happens to be a supervisor employed by one of the commercial carriers. Below is a photograph of the location where this witness stopped their car in an attempt to capture an image of the winged being. Lon
