Location: Decker Lake (Canada), BC
Shape: Unknown
Duration:approx: 10 minutes.
An extremely bright white object with a ring of red lights around the middle.

A witness called from Decker Lake to report seeing a very unusual object in the night sky. The witness said the sighting lasted for approximately 10 minutes before it moved away and into the distance. It then appeared as a very faint light until it just disappeared. The object seen was extremely bright white with a ring of red lights around the middle. It was reported that there were a good number of red lights which could be easily seen with the naked eye. It was a clear night and the star were shinning brightly, but the person said this was certainly no star.

HBCC UFO called the local airport which is very small to enquire to see if anyone knew if a helicopter or any aircraft was fling in that area on March 12, 2004 at approximately 10:30 p.m. and they said they were not aware of anything flying that evening. I also checked to see if anything was fling on February 27, 2004 and March 7, 2004 and again no reports of aircraft in the area. Both of these dates I mentioned had sightings of unusual craft in the area. I will also be taking a drive to visit all of the witnesses who filed reports to get a better idea where exactly the objects have been seen.

Also while I chatted with the witness I was told of a number of incidents which have taken place in and around Decker Lake and Burns Lake British Columbia. Objects being witnessed by a large number of folks. Some watching an object skimming over the water on Francois Lake and the object was of a large size, silent and glowing. Other strange white/objects making some very fantastic maneuvers in the sky's above and always dropping down behind one of the mountains in the Grassy Plains area. This is rather interesting because I know there has been a number of cattle mutes that have taken place across Francois Lake and around Grassy Plains. Also strange creatures are being reported from our native peoples.

I will also add I receive information from a very credible source who works on Francois Lake everyday, along with others who have reported that the large Canadian Search and Rescue Buffalo had been flying late at night for no known reason over top of Francois Lake at very unusual hours. Some of these witness made enquires to why the aircraft was there, thinking the flight crew may have been on a training mission but there was no information to come forward.

I am starting to wonder if there isn't something happening all throughout this area and I am certainly going to be spending some time out there talking with residents around the area.

Below is a little on what our Search and Rescue Buffalo looks like.

Buffalo the Tactical Twin from DHC DHC’s Buffalo* was designed to meet a US Army requirement for a fixed-wing tactical transport with a cargo capacity to match Boeing-Vertol CH-46 Chinook helicopters. The type entered Canadian service in 1967 as a complement to the larger CC-130 Hercules. The training of paratroopers was among the CC-115’s early tasks but in 1974 the CF Buffalo fleet was modified for the search-and-rescue role.

Rescue equipment, improved navigation aids, and crew rest stations were all that was required to convert the Buffalo from transport** to SAR. Perhaps a little over- powered for their new role, the key virtue of the CC-115s was their availability. The Buffalo had little opportunity to make use of their phenomenal short take-off and landing abilities as SAR aircraft. However, the rear cargo ramp was ideal for rescue equipment dropping, and the paratrooper doors suited SAR-tech jumps just as well. But, the Buffs are aging and only 6 of 15 remain.
