 Fly By Night Paranormal Investigations is a volunteer team of paranormal researchers based in the Omaha Nebraska area. Investigations are conducted free of charge. FBN Paranormal is an Omaha based team serving Southwest Iowa and Southeast Nebraska. Our team’s goal is to help further the study of paranormal occurances. FBN hopes to collect evidence to support a growing understanding of that which we do not yet understand.

The Fly By Night Paranormal team was founded in 2008 just as the world was being fed a steady diet of ‘ghost hunting’ TV shows. For a couple of years we had watched all of the popular shows, in hopes that we would see something incredible appear in front of the array of cameras and gadgets. It soon became apparent to us that anything that we would see on these alleged ‘reality’ TV programs would be tainted by the very nature of the genre. FBN was born on the premise that the only way to dispell doubt about ‘evidence’ was to collect the data ourselves.
