Many stories have much less to get them started ! Maybe we will find out some day?
Like the Stephenville Texas sightings, when enough people are called fools maybe the Fools wil all get together and demand some respect?

This is a Work in Progress!

I've referred to this case many times in my posts, along with quite a few others that are very similar, but once again the "skeptics" are almost always in default of any comments, even to explain what it could be or could not be besides a genuine UFO.

Sorry, Your Majesty, this case was beaten to death - no freaking alienz have been found. You can use Search.

If they were found, you'd be one of the people covering it up--for sure.

That craft the B-52 encountered definitely wasn't ours, which means the craft was that of someone else other than mankind.

McGuffin, happy New Year mate and I'd certainly agree this case involves a genuine UFO - the paragraph below just about sums it up:


Quote

What we have, then, was a group of sightings made by men on the ground, at the missile sites scattered around the base. There was radar sightings from ground and weather's radar. There were visual sightings from the crew of the B-52, and an airborne radar sighting where the target traveled at 3,000 miles per hour. Scope photographs were taken. There were sightings made by S.Sgt. Bond the FSC at Nov. Flight, S.Sgt. Smith at Oscar-1, Julelt, and Mike Flight Team and a number of men in widely scattered locations. The object landed at location AA-43 and the entire observation lasted for 45 minutes. Fourteen other people in separate locations also reported the UFO.


It also seems U.S. Air Force staff sergeant Bill Smith is still sharing his UFO experiences at Minot AFB with other people, quite courageous when you think at the time he was 'ordered never to discuss the incident outside the chain of command' - hats off to him. :)


Standing up to the past


Cheers.

The skeptics should take a look at this case, but, there are those who will try to throw in explanations that just won't fit.

You get your wish this time, Skyeagle!  :P

I'm not the first to admit it is an intriguing case. The first point I would like to bring up, though, is the discrepancy in what was reported by visual identifaction by the B-52 team, and a 'site activation team member' (ground-based observer).

What the aircrew described was not a 'classic saucer', but more along the lines of the 'dirigible UFO'. Their description is "200 feet in diameter and many hundreds of feet long" which, even with the 'metal cylinder attached to a crescent' addition fits the 'dirigible UFO' much better than a 'saucer UFO'.

However, the ground based observer describes (and draws) a classic 'saucer UFO'.

Granted, they are separate sightings, and so there is no necessity for consistency in the shape of what was witnessed, but we do have to consider why, if we assume a guided vehicle was responsible for the sightings, different vehicles were observed in each instance?

We should use as a basis for comparison, the surveillance vehicles available to our militaries and theorise why different vehicles would be observed?  Are we to conclude multiple ET's (hence differing vehicle designs) visiting the same site within the same timeframe? That would seem to be stretching credulity, imo.

It is not impossible for the above to have occurred, it is just, imo, far more unlikely than at least one of the reports being misidentification.

I would like to see the various reports posted on this thread collated to show the sequence of the sightings, and the area over which they occurred, and any link between the observers (i.e. contact between personnel involved or otherwise connected to observers.) This may indicate where in subsequent reports, observers have been 'led' by rumour, etc, of the previous.

Hi Karl!


Perhaps the 'TRUTH' about UFOs monitoring nuclear weapon facilities is finally on it's way!

In any case I did offer the possibility if some type of experimental, perhaps hybridised blimp. Just like the ones that remains unexplained from the 1800's. If this was a large unexplained solid confirmed craft, the question remains as to why nobody was sent to investigate. If it was confirmed, it would have to be investigated, unless of course the object was known. It may not be the explanation, but I think it beats scratching ones head, and running with the all over explanation of out new gods - ET. A place to start. I feel calling ET is no more helpful then calling them stars. The discrepancies I can see are speed, which could be attributed to parallax error with a large object. However, I do not know the capabilities of a hybradised blimp.

It is interesting to note that Quintanilla felt this was plasma.

A few years ago, the Air Force set up my exhibition booth next to a B-52 from Minot AFB, and I spoke with the aircrew, and yes, the incident occurred as reported and the object was not a balloon, but of a flying machine that exhibited extraordinary flight characteristics far beyond anything in our inventory.

The B-52 will be around 90 years old when it is finally retired from service. BTW, "Red Tails" is due for opening this Friday, January 20, and  I hope to bring Colonel Warren with me. He is doing just fine.

I believe that is entirely possible, but we have seen earthly things that do not exist in out inventory, but are being considered and possibly tested before, such as the mystery airships of the 1800's. It's a mystery true, but we only have visual descriptions to work with, and they as we know can be quite shaky.There is also the possibility that the dimensions were not correctly estimated, making ordinary movements appear somewhat fantastic.

But what I find the strangest of all, and why I suspect black ops, is that there was no response. If it was a confirmed sighting, and unknown, why did we not send up reconnaissance?
