Cases like Big foot sightings just like the Alex Fisher testimony. He claims that he saw a Sasquatch in July 1985 during fishing in Alexander archipelago, Yacobi cove southeast Alaska. The hairy unidentified 9 foot tall creature was runing fast on 2 legs after Alex  stared at him for 15 seconds. Dr. Robert Alley, a local Sasquatch expert, reports that the area know as big foot hot spot and he listened and gather hundreds of testimonies of sightings by locals. The film escorts him while examining Prince of Wales island.

Another case from the Cryptozoology world brought in the documentary is about an unknown massive lake creature seen in southwest Alaskan Lake Iliamna by several eye witnesses. The creature depicted like prehistoric huge shark, twice the size of a great white shark with a square-like head that is used to place blunt force onto things such as small boats.

The earliest reports of a monster living in the lake came from the native Tlingit people, who tell stories of a creature referred to as the Gonakadet. It was described as a large, water-dwelling animal with a head ans tail similar to that of a wolf, and a body like an orca. The Gonakadet was depicted as a “fish god”, and was recorded in pictographs along the Alaskan and British Columbian coasts. Other early reports of the monster came from the native Aleut people, who tell stories of creatures they call the Jig-ik-nak. The fish-like monsters were reported to travel in groups and attack canoes and kill warriors. The creatures were feared and not hunted by the Aleut.

This sparked interest in others as pilots and fishermen began to wonder what the creatures were. Many more sightings were reported as people began to fly low over the lake for the purpose of seeing these monster fish.

UFO investigator Brent Mitchel Brings the famous UFOs cases that have occurred in Alaska. It seems that Alaska is a UFO hot spot as well, if it’s the clear night sky, the vast natural space, or Aurora Borealis, the reason remains unknown.

Most famous is the Japanese Flight 1628 UFO encounter. In November 1986, Japanese Air Lines flight 1628 was flying from Paris to Tokyo with a cargo of Beaujolais wine. As they were flying over Alaska, the crew aboard the plane witnessed two unidentified flying objects to their left. When the objects neared the plane it was filled with light and heat. Then a third UFO started following the plane. But when an airlines and a military jet approached the plane, it was alone.
