Default Re: New Zealand Military to Release Secret UFO Files

At that time the American government were using Christchurch as a staging post to send men and supplies to Antarctica. So it is no surprise that American military aircraft were to be seen in Christchurch skies. See the following quote from:

"Antarctic cooperation is an important part of New Zealand's relations with other countries. For example, New Zealand, the United States and Italy share resources by operating a joint logistics pool out of Christchurch in support of their respective Antarctic programmes. New Zealand scientists cooperate on Antarctic research with scientists from many countries."
