October 28th / The Philadelphia Experiment is now a 75 Year Old Legend

Merchandise that’s just out of this world!

The Philadelphia Experiment is now a 75 Year Old Legend. It's hard to believe 75 years have gone by and the interest is still there with 100's of visitors a day to my website.
"To the best of Allen’s recollection, the disappearance of the DE-173 occurred between 17:05 and 17:20 hours on the 28th of October 1943."


The PX has ties with Ufology from men in black encounters to Allen's stories of The Great Ark / UFO's;

“Oh, we have had contact with the ET’s since 1943. It was due to an accident of an experiment that the Navy was running at that time, on invisibility!”

"On the second of June, 1946 a brightly flaming object was seen in the sky above the Gulf of Alaska. The Great Ark, it was called.. I was on the Malay in the Atlantic… After it landed {9 miles from the Malay} , it discharged a lot of smaller craft… lifeboats… We pulled up four miles and turned parallel with the Ark, and that’s when it exploded. It was a small nuclear explosion, but there was no harmful fallout” – Carl M. Allen (1991)

And lets not forget the some say suspicious death of Morris K. Jessup who's book "The Case of the UFO" brought Navy interest into the Subject.

Are you posting for posterity or do you believe the Philadelphia Experiment really happened?

Weather the Philadelphia Experiment happened or not is one thing, but there is no mistake on how it changed the lives of so many over the 75 years now. There is real stories of real people that were affected by this possible event in so many ways, and this is where a lot of the interest truly is. Beyond Carl Allen and a few others there is little. The whole Montauk Project and people involved craziness, is simply that. Weather a ship disappeared in 1943 or not, it sure did impact our popular culture and the future of many good people. My site (www.de173.com) gives all the facts as depressing as they may be at times as well as some interesting stores that make you wonder. I have spent over 35 years digging through books, making phone calls, meeting and interviewing various people. I have walked the decks of the Eldridge’s Sister Ship to get a real idea of the scale of the possible experiment. I have held original letters from Carl Allen, and poured over government microfilms, and archives. I even had the opertunity to purchase the Eldridge lol.. There is little doubt anyone has spent more time on the subject. As Mulder would say “I want to believe” but the facts of documented historical events from multiple ships, and quality of witnesses makes this hard at times. Lack of evidence is simply that, lack of evidence. Some may surface possibly one day. Something may have happened, all the right people were in the right place... but what really happened? We are all getting old and one thing is for sure this story will outlast us as it has so many others, and that in its self is pretty amazing.
