Maui UFO Report ~ Lahaina Yacht Harbor UFO by Steve Omar

20_1lahaina_blues_ii    The most spectacular Maui UFO sighting in my files, confirmed by dozens of witnesses, was near the Lahaina Yacht Harbor in May 1970.  High priority is the clear, blue skies, sunny day and very low altitude. The huge silver cylindrical craft was so close that witnesses could see many rows of windows. The UFO did not move for an estimated twenty minutes, giving perhaps hundreds of witnesses time to study it. The object was filmed by a Warner Brothers cameraman, and a still photo appeared in the major State of Hawaii daily newspaper!  Countless tourists lined the nearby seawall downtown in Maui’s major tourist town then, while the UFO was observed by boat crews in and outside the harbor. 3 famous surf stars surfing off the breakwater confessed watching it overhead.  Police witnessed the incident. The UFO was covered in Maui newspapers, radio and TV. So how could ANYONE deny it?

After all the publicity, an official military statement said that this UFO was “a guided missile fired from the missile base on Kauai off course.”  I shut down the military so completely in my news releases that they were unable to respond!  I challenged the Air Force to show us a photo of a guided missile larger than a battleship, with rows of port holes, that would not move for 20 minutes!  Missiles swoosh by so fast that it is difficult to see what they even look like, do not have windows, and it is against Federal law to send a missile over a town!  The correct missile range is out to see toward the Marshall Islands. If the missile was that far off and came from the “wrong” direction as Kauai, the Air Force was so incompetent it was dangerous!

"VFMLID=48800162"      This incident was my own first proof that the Air Force lied about UFOs. I was in Puerto Rico during the incident, yet interviewed several stars of the Hollywood movie RAINBOW BRDIGE who witnessed it, including the UFO researcher for the film Leslie Potts. His testimonial is in the movie I scripted and directed, RAINBOW BRIDGE REVISITED. INn 1970 Leslie showed us the photo in the state newspaper, published on Oahu, where the UFO was so huge it could be seen from that island over 100 miles away.  It sure did not look to me like a missile. The photo showed a UFO that looked exactly like some UFO so-called “mother ships” taken over the Mojave Desert in the 1950s.

       During the filming of this movie theater classic, the Warner Brothers cameraman filmed it and sent it to their Los Angeles editing studio like the other daily  shootings. All the shootings were returned to Director Chuck Wein, “except” the UFO footage!  Instead a blank tape was sent, so who was trying to hide or censor it?  We were told by cast members that government intelligence agents arrived at the studio, and demanded the UFO footage with violent threats. When I tried to confirm this from screenplay writer and director Chuck Wein after the movie premiered, he refused to discuss the incident!  Since Chuck’s main stated purpose in making RAINBOW BRIDGE was to bring about the mass awareness of the secret government cover-ups of UFO truths, this reaction led me to speculate he had been forced into silence!  What other motive could Chuck have, for refusing to discuss ANYTHING about UFOs after his movie came out?

Lahania 02       After that incident Warner Brothers executives fired Chuck and his crew from this movie, reportedly telling them that they thought RAINBOW BRIDGE was a rock and roll, surfing, New Age, and hippie movie (huge fads in 1970), and exposing top secret government information was not allowed nor expected of them!
.
       Wein and Executive Producer Michael Jeffrey were forced to start their own movie company called Atakarana Productions (meaning “Rainbow Bridge” in India’s Sanskrit, and raise their own money.  Because Michael had been a manager for the Rolling Stones, and was Jimi Hendrix’s manager, that was no problem.

 sheraton-maui-resort (1)      Jimi Hendrix was chosen to be lead star because he was then the most highly rated rock guitar musician in the world, so the film crew believed he would attract masses of the skeptics and potential believers in ETs and UFOs to hear the truth!  Jimi Hendrix told cast members and Wein he himself had seen a UFO at Woodstock, which reportedly appeared between midnight and dawn on one of the 3 nights of the biggest music concert in history. Most of the crowd and the media was asleep at that hour, yet enough hundreds saw the UFO it made Rolling Stone magazine and some newspapers. Hendrix was allegedly convinced that this UFO sighting was “a sign” to do the movie!. Chuck Wein told cast members I interviewed that the huge UFO over Lahaina, during the filming, was “the sign the movie was to reveal the UFO cover-up.”
.
        Note that some of Jimi’s lyrics were about UFOs and ETs and there was a saucer on one of his album covers. In Rolling Stone magazine in 1970 Hendrix mentioned Mars and Martians.  Hendrix allegedly believed he was on a spiritual mission for humanity to reveal “the space brothers”, as friendly ETs here to advise and help Earth were called then in the New Age media.  Several people involved in the movie believe Jimi paid for that with his life, because he was far too famous for the CIA and Pentagon to ignore!

        The final scene in the movie shows part of the cast hiking through Maui’s Halekala Crater, which in the seventies was a major UFO sightings hotspot, and entering a cabin. A woman appears and tells the cast that the United States government is covering up the truth about UFOs and the Space Brothers, made a secret deal with space brothers for advanced technologies, and will not allow the public to have free non-polluting energies they received because the oil, electrical, coal, and nuclear industries (biggest bank accounts in the world then) would go out of business!

    Our gov’t is in cahoots with the aliens. We all know they are there, why the gov’t pretends they are not is beyond me. Everything our gov’t does is detrimental to it’s citizens.
