Based on a true story, 'The Last Transmission' tells the story a young pilot, Delta Sierra Juliet, and an aging air traffic controller, Fred, on the brink of retirement. As the pilot flies from Colorado Springs to Carlsbad, he calls to Roswell, just as the old man is about to clock out for good, inquiring about other traffic in his airspace.

I watch a lot of shorts and enjoyed this one also. I don't know why people hate so much on these shorts. Limited budget = No CGI, no big names, no fancy editing, just a good simple story. I thought for sure the end would show the main Character waking up the nexy day, getting the paper and reading of the Roswell UFO crash as the camera pulls away showing the questioning look on his face. Fade out, End scene.. Thanks... :)

This is actually based on the disappearance of Frederick Valentich which occurred when he flying over the bass strait in Australia.

Which is worse, to be abducted and never return or be returned

The things I find most interesting about Valentich's disappearance are, 1) All the lies... (more on that in a bit) 2) Both he and is father were big UFO buffs. 3) His transmission was eerily similar to the Air Traffic Control scene from "Close Encounters", which had been released only one year prior. 4) Pieces of a plane, identical to the one Valentich flew, washed ashore about five years after his disappearance. The most likely scenario for what actually happened is that Valentich was playing a prank that ended up costing him his life. Back to the lies: Valentich told his family and his girlfriend that he was going to King Island to pick up crayfish, but there are no crayfish on King Island. He told the airport from which he rented the plane that he was going to pick up passengers, but there was no one on King Island waiting for him. And then there was the fact that the airport on King Island was uncontrolled (meaning, in order to land he would have had to call ahead to the airport to let them know he was coming, so they could turn on the landing lights for him... no such call was ever made). From all of that, it seems pretty obvious that Valentich never had any intention of landing on King Island; but then why didn't he return to Moorabbin Airport in Melbourne?

Spacial Disorientation

Valentich's stunt took place at night, over the Pacific ocean. In fact, it was his very first flight over a large body of water at night. Being over water at night is the most common place for pilots to suffer spacial disorientation. From Valentich's own transcript, just before he disappears, he told Air Traffic Control that he was orbiting, which was something he needed to do to give ATC something to look at on their radar... a large, somewhat stationary target to make it seem like there could be something there with him when their wasn't. As he's orbiting he probably became disoriented (he can't see the horizon line, everywhere he looks it's black). He's not concentrating on his instruments, because he's on the radio. Without noticing, he's suddenly climbing instead of flying level... this stalls his engine (hence the radio call about his engine's rough idle). As he's trying to correct what seems like a minor miscalculation, he's still on the radio trying to sell his story... he's talking about the object hovering over him instead of fully concentrating on his instruments... instead of correcting the stall, he overcorrects... now he starts fighting the ball that is his artificial horizon. There's nothing outside to help him, everywhere he looks it's solid black. The ball is all over the place, nothing he does seems to help, he tries pushing the stick and rudder in the opposite direction that the ball is spinning... but nothing works. Why can't he fix this? What's wrong with his plane? Less than two minutes after he first tells Moorabbin about his engine's rough idle, Valentich hits the surface of the water at a suicidal speed.

Five years later, pieces of a plane exactly like the one Valentich was flying washed ashore on an island 200 miles east of the one he was flying to. Authorities stated that no other plane of the specific type Valentich was flying that night has ever crashed anywhere near that area (except, of course, his... in all probability).

That seems like a pretty awesome gig, air traffic controller at an out-of-the-way podunk dirt-pack airfield. I'm lazy, unambitious, and like being around as few people as possible. Where do I apply?

Slow-paced but still effective. A bit of nostalgia for my pre-teen years, poring over accounts of supposed abductions and UFO sightings from the 60s...

Wow. This was perfectly paced, well presented and reminds me of the events that occurred over the Bass Strait that involved a pilot Frederick Valentich in October 1978. A mix of locations and narratives. Very nicely done.

Did anybody spot Brendan Fehr? He was the pilot flying the Cessna, talking to the Roswell Control Tower. However, this actor was also one of the three main characters of the teen sci-fi series ROSWELL - about 3 aliens who were abandoned on earth and adopted by human parents. It seems both ironic and yet a tribute to his role in ROSWELL the TV series, that he should play a pilot who gets abducted by aliens while flying over Roswell. By the way, I thoroughly enjoyed it, despite the low budget.

Oh wow! Just realised, it's Gomez from the fabulous Breaking Bad One of t.v.'s best actors IMHO. In the same league as the phenomenal Edward James Olmos and, I see the actor from Roswell flying the Cessna.

Good rendition of the Frederick Valentich case.

Okay - - - A quite well done UFO'er - I admit I enjoyed it. I'm not into alien UFO stuff, as I don't believe, even though as a scientist I realize the possibility of alien UFOs. Main point is the production was quality, the acting good, and kudos to all involved.

Amazing one! Of all the Dust shorts that I have seen, this is my personal favourite along with The Secret Number. The traffic controller's last work day shown at the control room led to an interesting and intriguing build-up to the main incident.

Here is a question I've always had about the DSJ Frederick Valentich encounter. During the last 20 seconds or so there was a scraping noise recorded on tape as if there was a collision between tow aircraft. Here is my question as a pilot for over fifty (50) years. Why did Frederick Valentich record the final 20 seconds of his death on audio tape. That would have meant a pilot in extreme distress would have made the "positive and affirmative action of purposely pushed down and held the microphone transmitter button on his steering wheel for over 20 seconds to record what was eventually recorded. Why would somebody who was about to die, purposefully and intentionally hold down the microphone button on his steering wheel just to record the last final moments of his life if he did not have a plan to do so?
It is well known that people who are about to die do not plan the final 30 seconds of their lives so that others can try to understand why they killed themselves. Why did Fred record that last 20 to 30 seconds just so that there could be an open microphone for anybody to hear while there was recorded a screeching sound during those final moments. Please somebody, explain what that is not a suspicious factor in the death of Frederick?

Brendan Fehr! Very cool. He was in the TV show, Roswell (and Booth's brother in Bones).

How do they know the guy calling in from the small plane wasn't just a clown with an aircraft radio making the whole encounter up?

I really enjoyed this film! With solid production value and being beautifully shot and edited, I can see what the film makers were saying. There are some story complaints in the comments, the only minor suggestion was that the 3rd act was a little short, Other than that I felt it was paced well. Nice job Stephen!
