The Cash - Landrum case is undisputedly one of the classic UFO sighting/physical trace cases.
It assumes great importance because of the traces left behind by the unknown object in the form of radiation effects on the three witnesses and their car. SOMETHING real caused the terrible effects. it is sure that their suffering is real.
Important also is the witnesses' reports of many US military helicopters in the immediate vicinity of the unknown object and the official denials of any government knowledge of the incident.
An extremely haunting UFO sighting which has well stood the test of time was an event which took place in the Piney Woods of Texas, near the town of Huffman. On the chilly night of December 29.1980, two women and one child encountered a craft of unknown origin, and all three suffered not only emotional trauma, but severe physical injury as well.
The Cash-Landrum Incident was a reported Unidentified Flying Object sighting from the United States in 1980, which the witnesses insist was responsible for damage to their health. It is one of very few UFO cases to result in criminal court proceedings.
It can be classified as a Close Encounter of the Second Kind, due to its reported physical effects on the witnesses and their automobile.
