Brian Hennessy, who has worked for the Chongqing University of Medical Sciences in China, brought a new perspective to living-pterosaur investigations when he told me, Jonathan Whitcomb, about his encounter with a “prehistoric” flying creature.
He is a professional psychologist. This practically eliminates the possibility that he mistakenly reported to me a hallucination.
He was on a truck that was descending from a ridge on Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea, in 1971, when he heard the wing beats. He looked up and saw a large creature with no sign of feathers. The “prehistoric” looking animal that flew over the heads of the men in the truck had a long tail and a head crest.
