about this unique content

Binoculars UFO witness David Hunt was interviewed 15 years after the famed "Incident at Exeter"by Exeter High School students Bernard Dubbrac and Paul Marcoaldi. At the time of the sighting Hunt was working at the Exeter Police Dept and was at the nearby North Hampton Dept. when this interview was recorded. The not very reveiling interview took place on May 9, 1980. -- JDR

Read: Tale of an Exeter-Terrestrial

STUDENT:
How long did you work in Exeter as a police officer?

HUNT:
All together, about six or seven years.

STUDENT:
Did the UFO sighting have anything to do with your change over to the North Hampton Police Department?

HUNT:
No.

STUDENT:
What did the UFO move through the air like?

HUNT:
More or less on, like a fluttering motion, like a leaf falling back and forth.

STUDENT:
What was it shaped like?

HUNT:
Couldn't really get a shape, mostly the lights, you'd guess mostly round.

STUDENT:
Did you believe in UFOs before the sighting?

HUNT:
No. I had an open mind about it. Still do.

STUDENT:
Do many people come up and ask you about it?

HUNT:
No, not anymore.

STUDENT:
But they did when...

HUNT:
Oh yeah, the first year, especially the first six months.

STUDENT:
They really came up to you?

HUNT:
Yeah.

STUDENT:
Did the UFO make any noise?

HUNT:
No, not that I know of, not that I could tell.

STUDENT:
Have you read the book "Incident at Exeter" by John Fuller?

HUNT:
Yeah, I read it back then.

STUDENT:
Was it an accurate account?

HUNT:
Yes, it's reasonable accurate.

STUDENT:
Who else was there with you?

HUNT:
Gene Bertrand and a boy named Muscarello.

STUDENT:
OK, Betty Hill told our school paper that Exeter was a UFO zone. What do you think of that?

HUNT:
Well, I don't really know what you would classify as a "zone."

STUDENT:
Well, she seems to think that she sees them all the time. Have you seen any UFOs since then?

HUNT:
Not that I can be sure of. No

STUDENT:
Do you think that UFOs will ever come back around?

HUNT:
I don't know really.

STUDENT:
How did the people react when you told them about the UFO you saw?

HUNT:
Well, about the same as anything else. Some believe you, some don't. Some take it real serious, about the same as any other things. Some people are skeptical, some aren't. Some have an open mind, some don't.

STUDENT:
Did you yourself talk to John Fuller about this?

HUNT:
Oh yeah.

STUDENT:
How do you feel about this now that it's all over 15 years later?

HUNT:
It's just a thing that happened and we reported it the way it happened at that time, which you know is about all you can do I guess.
