Lt. Col Wendelle Stevens joined us in studio on Open Minds Radio on October 29, 2009. This is the archived audio and video of one of his final interviews. Wendelle passed away on September 7, 2010 in Tucson, Arizona.


Wendelle C. Stevens was a retired US Air Force pilot-turned-UFO investigator and researcher. Wendelle began his military career in the Army Air Force in 1942. After WWII, in the newly formed Air Force, Wendelle participated in many top secret programs, including those which had him investigate UFOs. Having this official inside knowledge, he knew there was something to the phenomena, so he began his own private research and investigation. Since then Wendell collected more than 4,000 actual UFO photographs, and has written and co-authored over 30 books on extensive UFO contact cases. Stevens has also been a Director of the International UFO Congress since its inception, as its original founding member. He investigated many high profile cases such as the Billy Meier case and the Aztec UFO crash in New Mexico. We talked to Wendelle about his Air Force days, his collection of photos and books, and asked him to share his special insight during his 6 decades of UFO research. Wendelle Stevens passed away on September 7, 2010 in Tucson, Arizona.
