The Centre for Fortean Zoology was founded in the UK in 1992 - nearly 20 years ago. Over the past two decades it has expanded to become a truly global organisation. We opened our American office in 2001, our Australian office in 2009, and now - in our 19th year - we are proud to welcome CFZ Canada to the CFZ global family.

 May 20th 1967

Falcon Lake Manitoba.

    Across Canada, Canadians we waking in great excitement as they made plans for the upcoming Centennial Celebration for this great country in a little over a month.

    Caravans and the Centennial train crisscrossed the country show casing our history in cities and town. The Queen and Prince Philip would be here, with Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and Governor General Judy Lamarsh. Canada was having a Party, expo 67 was in full swing, new Songs were being written, Canada had Hoisted the Maple leaf in 1965 replacing the Union Jack and would be on full display at every event, The Whole World was invited, and perhaps, just perhaps visitors from an even more distant world came to celebrate with us too.

    East of the city of Winnipeg , Stephan Michalak, an industrial mechanic and amateur geologist, was out by the lake searching for Quartz when he was interrupted by a gaggle of geese that began a large fuss of Honks as if being startled. Michalak, turned and scan around to see what had gotten such a rise out of the Geese wand what he saw would be the crux of what was to come.

    In the Sky Michalak witnessed two large cigar shaped objects with a reddish glow hovering 45 meters away. One descended to a nearby rock where it landed and took on a more disc like shape. Michalak thinking he was seeing a United States experimental aircraft, observed as the second object left the area and sat down to sketch the object now alighted upon the rocking landing area.

    Having Completed his drawing and believing the disk to be an experimental craft Michalak approached the craft, he walked around the noting an open door and appearing completely seamless. When he reached out to touch the craft with his work gloves on he recoiled back as his gloves began to melt where they came in contact with the metal.

    Having exploring the perimeter of the ship and finding no insignia on it he approached the open door of the craft, the strong odour of Sulphur and burnt motor.

    He heard murmuring of voices coming from inside the ship, as well as the hissing of air, and the whirring of motors. He called out into the door offering mechanical help to the “Yankee Boys”. The murmuring fell silent. He tried calling out in his native Polish, Russian and German. He put on his welding glass he used while mining to avoid quartz chips and dust getting into his eyes. Looking inside the ship he saw light beams and panels of of various coloured lights, but he could see anyone or any other living thing.

    As he stepped back from the door three panels slide across the opening and the craft began to rotate counter clockwise, the panel he had sketched in his drawing rotated in front of him and a blast or hot air or gas hit him on the chest pushing him back and setting his his shirt and cap on fire.

    As he ripped the burning garments and flaming hat from his body the craft rose into the air and flew away.

    Disoriented and feeling ill he stumbled back to his hotel room vomiting along the way, He caught a bus back to Winnipeg and went to the local hospital.

    At the hospital he was treated for burns on his chest and stomach large red sores began to form in the area in a familiar grid pattern.

    For weeks Michalak suffered from blackouts, headaches, diarrhea and weight loss.

    As the story came out, Air force personal from Canada, the United States the RCMP, the media and various other government agencies, as well as the hoard of gawkers, curious and people who took up camping on the families front lawn. Media even followed Nine year old Stan to school peppering his with questions.

    From that day forward till he passed away at the age of 83 Michalak said he should of never of said anything and still believed he saw a government experimental craft.

In the pursuit of getting healthy again Michalak traveled to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota, there Doctors did a barrage of tests, and found him to be pragmatic and very down to earth who does not make up stories.

    So what really happened at Falcon lake that day? Was it an experimental craft?

    Was a passing extraterrestrial craft need some quick repairs? D the craft and occupants purposely turn the exhaust ports at Michalak in a attempt to eliminate a witness, what made Michalak so ill? Radioactive exhaust as mentioned in many blogs and videos.

    What of the molten metal found in the landing area melted down into the cracks of the rock? And where other melted pieces other then one piece still in families possession?

    I have no answers, I tend to keep to a very open mind on anything and everything, so tell me what you think in the comments below

Thank you to the following that I used to research this article.
