Science Channel kicks off the premier episode with VALENTICH. THE UNEXPLAINED FILES delves into the story of the missing pilot who reported seeing a strange and unusual aircraft hovering over him just minutes before he disappeared. THE UNEXPLAINED FILES will then venture to Texas for the story of the TEXAS BLUE DOGS researching the bizarre hairless, blue-skinned, blue-eyed and hunch-backed creatures that prey on local livestock and farm animals–leaving Texans questioning what these strange animals could possibly be. Tune in for the premiere Wednesday, August 28th at 9PM ET/PT on Science Channel! For more information the episode descriptions are below:
Valentich- On October 21, 1978, 20-year-old Australian pilot Frederick Valentich rented a single engine Cessna 182L and left Melbourne, Australia to begin a 48-mile training flight. During the flight, Valentich told Melbourne air traffic control that an aircraft about 1,000 feet above him was accompanying him. He said, “The strange aircraft is hovering on top of me again. It is hovering and it's not an aircraft” Frederick Valentich and his plane were never seen again.
Texas Blue Dogs- Since 2004 bizarre hairless, blue-skinned, blue-eyed and hunch-backed dogs have been seen in Texas attacking and mutilating livestock and farm animals. The creatures have been caught on film and camera, and their bodies have been found. One Texas doctor even has one stuffed and mounted in her fireplace. But the classification of these creatures is still very much a matter of great debate among experts.
