Claims

Brothers Jim Weiner and Jack Weiner with friends Charles Foltz and Charles Rak claim that they were abducted by aliens during a camping trip in Allagash, Maine on August 20, 1976. According to the four men, hypnotic regression enabled them to recall being taken aboard a circular UFO and being "probed and tested by four-fingered beings with almond-shaped eyes and languid limbs".[1]

The incident was the subject of a book, The Allagash Abductions by Raymond E. Fowler. The incident was also dramatized in an episode of Unsolved Mysteries and featured in the TV program Abducted by UFOs.
