The Malmstrom UFO Incident occurred on March 16, 1967, near Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana, United States. It involved the sighting of unidentified objects by security personnel and the apparent disruption of nuclear missile systems during the incident.
In the early hours of March 16, multiple security personnel stationed at various missile launch facilities reported seeing unusual bright, glowing objects in the sky above the base. Witnesses described the objects as circular or oval-shaped and emitting multi-colored lights. Some witnesses reported the objects performing aerial maneuvers that defied known aircraft capabilities.
Around the same time, communication failures and equipment malfunctions were reported at several missile launch facilities. Missiles became inoperative, and the guidance and control systems experienced intermittent disruptions. The technical issues were considered highly unusual and could not be easily explained by conventional malfunctions or known causes.
The base’s security forces were immediately dispatched to investigate the sightings and secure the missile launch sites. Although no physical evidence of the objects was found, numerous personnel reported witnessing the unidentified objects firsthand.
The incident gained significant attention and led to an official investigation by the U.S. Air Force. However, the details of the investigation and its findings have been largely classified, and the complete report has not been publicly released. The Air Force officially downplayed the incident, suggesting that the sightings and equipment malfunctions were unrelated.
Over the years, however, some individuals involved in the incident have come forward, providing testimonies and interviews. Several witnesses have claimed that the objects exhibited advanced technology, such as the ability to hover silently and rapidly accelerate. They further alleged that the objects were directly responsible for the missile system disruptions.
