2015 SFO Regional Meeting and Lunch

Jan 22, 2015 – Over 40 UFO members and guests met at the Hiller Museum in San Carlos. After UFO news and updates, eight new members gave short introductions of themselves and their flying background.

Our speaker, John Lannom, gave a very interesting talk, with slide presentation, of his experience with a little known airline, Trans Ocean Airlines. Although it was a commercial carrier, in business during the 60’s through the 80’s, it’s secondary purpose was to transport defectors from the former Soviet Union and satellite countries to the U.S. for re-settlement. John then worked for the CIA, part time, in support of this activity. He had permission from the CIA to speak on this subject.
