Storyline

With in Scully having taken Sgt. Louis Frisch to Washington, Mulder goes for a swim in the lake near the crash site and finds what he believes is a crashed UFO. What he finds confirms his belief that Flight 549 was shot down by a USAF fighter that was intercepting a UFO. The cover-up attempt continues and an attempt on Sgt. Frisch's life leads to the death of an FBI Agent. Carter learns what it is that Max Fenig and his friend Sharon stole from a secret government lab. One piece of evidence is still available but transporting it to Washington proves to be something of a challenge. Written by garykmcd
