Winged Woman

The Mysterious Winged Woman Encountered During The Vietnam War

Every now and then, tales of bizarre encounters with humanoid creatures come into the limelight such as Mothman, Yeti, Chupacabra, etc. There have been many reports of weird, flying humanoids over the years. The Mothman of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, was made famous by John A. Keel’s book “The Mothman Prophecies”, and it is undoubtedly the most well-known creature that is believed to be either extra-terrestrial or supernatural, but definitely it is not something human. Before we discuss this astonishing case of the winged woman witnessed during the Vietnam war, Let’s take a look at the infamous Mothman.

It is believed that Mothman is an otherworldly creature with bright red eyes who appeared from nowhere and, according to some, it also resulted in the Chernobyl Nuclear tragedy and numerous deaths. But who or what was the Point Pleasant Mothman? On the dark night of Nov. 12, 1966, when five funeral directors working in a cemetery in the neighboring town of Clendenin were startled to see what they characterized as a “brown human shape with wings” rise out of the dense, surrounding woods and soar off into the distance. The strange beast reappeared three days later.

Two young, married couples from Point Pleasant—Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette—were driving around the town in the Scarberrys’ automobile at the highly suitable hour of the witching hour when the bizarre incident took place.

The next creature which very much resembles a Mothman is Batsquatch which was apparently witnessed by a man in 1994. On the evening of Saturday, April 16, 1994, a young man came across a Batsquatch in the Southeast of Buckley, Washington State, with Mount Rainier in the near distance. Interestingly, Mount Rainier has another intriguing and well-known aerial mystery associated with it.

On June 24, 1947, Kenneth Arnold, a pilot was flying over the mountain when he came across a squadron of strange, flying objects that, after the news got wind of the encounter, became widely recognized as flying saucers. However, let’s get back to Batsquatch, Brian Canfield, who was at the time driving his vehicle to Camp One, a community in the area that is located close to Lake Kapowsin, where he witnessed the terrifying beast. Everything was well up until Canfield’s headlights started to fade and in a matter of the next few seconds, the engine of his car completely failed.

When this infernal creature came into view at around 9:30 p.m. on a lonely section of Washington State Road, the young man was scared to death and could not figure out how to react. Canfield was unable to do anything but watch in horror as a gigantic, dark-colored humanoid fell from the night sky. The creature glided and came to rest directly in front of his car. Canfield was so terrified that he was unable to move. All he could do was hold onto the steering wheel while utterly terrified gazing at the beast in front of him. To put it mildly, it was shocking.

The Winged Woman-Humanoid in Vietnam War

The Vietnam War was a conflict in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. The war ended when U.S. forces withdrew in 1973 and Vietnam unified under Communist control two years later. However, what grabbed the attention is the sighting of a winged woman-humanoid during the war.

The incident occurred in Da Nang, a city on Vietnam’s south-central coast where a guy named Earl Morrison and a number of his friends experienced the shock of their lives in August 1969. The ominous event took place in the dark of night as the guys were on guard duty and vigilantly on the lookout for the Vietcong. Up until 1:30 a.m., it was a regular calm, and typical night.

Though suddenly, a point came where the atmosphere altered, and the startled Marines of the U.S. 1st Division. They were alerted by the presence of an unsettling shape. Morrison was initially hesitant to come out in public, but he later changed his opinion and, by 1972, was at ease talking about the incident, even though he wasn’t at ease with what he experienced.

“We saw what looked like wings, like a bat’s, only it was gigantic compared to what a regular bat would be. After it got close enough so we could see what it was, it looked like a woman. A naked woman. She was black. Her skin was black, her body was black, the wings were black; everything was black. But it glowed. It glowed in the night, kind of greenish cast to it. She started going over us, and we still didn’t hear anything. She was right above us, and when she got over the top of our heads she was maybe 6 or 7 feet up.

We watched her go straight over the top of us, and she still didn’t make any noise flapping her wings. She blotted out the moon once – that’s how close she was to us. And dark – looked like pitch black then, but we could still define her because she just glowed. Real bright like. And she started going past us straight towards our encampment. As we watched her – she had got about 10 feet or so away from us – we started hearing her wings flap. And it sounded, you know, like regular wings flapping. And she just started flying off and we watched her for quite a while”.


A UFO researcher, Don Worley was one of those who showed a lot of interest in the tale of the winged woman-humanoid of Da Nang. Additional information was revealed in his personal meeting with Morrison, including the woman’s black, straight hair, the possibility that her wings were slightly furry, the way she “rippled” as she flew by, the lack of visible bones in her body, and the way that her wings appeared to be directly “molded” to her hands and arms. The investigators Janet and Colin Bord said of this particularly odd case, in their classic 1980 book, Alien Animals:

“Usually our reports of winged figures describe them as ‘men,’ but without any indication whether features are seen which tell the witness definitely that it is a man. In view of this we suspect that so-called ‘birdmen’ should strictly be termed ‘bird people’ or ‘bird persons,’ and that no sex attribution can honestly be made. However, the Da Nang sighting does not come into that category.”

Only one other woman humanoid with wings that we are aware of is the Cyhyraeth, also known as Gwrach y Rhibyn, or the Witch of Rhibyn a mythical being from Wales. She resembles an Irish banshee, crying and moaning to prophesy deaths.
