So news is I'm going to be a guest on Spaced Out Radio on October 27th 2015. Based in Vancouver, they live stream every night from www.blogtalkradio.com/spacedoutradio
Dr Frank E Stranges founded NICUFO and also had a group of select followers called the "Inner Circle." Their meetings continued right up until shortly before Dr Frank's passing in 2008.
Recently, Inner Circle member Nick Bensond, posted a number of videotaped meetings on YouTube that are for sure worth watching.
In one of those videos, Dr Frank told a story of how he was taking a domestic commercial flight with Vice Commander Donn Thor, Val's brother, who is pictured in the iconic photographs taken by Augie Roberts at Howard Menger's home in High Bridge, New Jersey.
It turns out Alan Alda of M.A.S.H. fame is on the same flight as Dr Frank and Donn Thor. Dr Frank and Alan Alda, winner of six Emmy Awards, start talking and the conversation turns to UFOs; what happened next is quite remarkable,
Dr Frank E. Stranges points to Vice Commander Donn Thor and says, "this man is from Venus!"
The tongue-in-cheek delivery in how Dr Frank told the story was both hilarious and informative at the same time. He probably didn't think much of it at the time, but what transpired is of high importance since it gives us an opportunity to contact Alda in hopes that he can corroborate the story and perhaps shed new insight on what it was like to talk to a high-ranking extraterrestrial from the interior of the planet Venus.
I searched around the web for info on this and was surprised at how little information there is available. Luckily, I found a message board that still had postings archived from 2009. Someone who claims to have known Dr Frank as well as Howard Menger and his wife (he says they were genuine people), posted the following:
Alan Alda who Dr Frank met on a plane ride with Donn Thor heard the tale and after talking to Donn on the trip ran up to them as they exited and said "You know I have heard stuff like this before but you 2 guys i really do believe what you say!"
I'm going to tweet to Alan Alda (follow him at @alanalda) in hopes of a response... wish me luck! I'll post more on this soon. Anyone with info on this subject should contact me at ValiantThorFanClub@gmail.com
