Questions:

Why would NORAD refuse the order to send up the jets? Did they see anything on their RADAR?

Why did the military hold fire on every single occasion?

Thanks for the replies, here's some more potential info about the Minot AFB incident(s):

Quote

During the past five years that we have been investigating the events at Minot AFB, we have located and interviewed over fifteen principal witnesses and amassed hundreds of pages of supporting documentation.  This has allowed us to fairly accurately reconstruct the events and provided insights into the official investigations.  Only recently have we completed our research, and currently are in the process of writing a comprehensive historical report which will be available here in the coming weeks.

Richard Dolan discusses government UFO documentation and the Minot Air Force base intrusions of 1966:


Quote

See 7:45



LIVE at the 6th Annual X-Conference, held in 2010, Historian Richard Dolan presents an analysis of the patterns of UFO secrecy since the 1940s. Focusing on the national security aspects of the UFO phenomenon, Dolan explains how it was a key factor in the creation of the U.S. "black budget," and hence a subversion of the traditional American political system. He also discusses the paradox of how an end to UFO secrecy is both impossible and inevitable.

Psyche, I've no idea, what's your opinion?

Do you think the Minot incidents are interesting and if so why?

Hi Karl

Just seems to me that if the thing was in sight for three quarters of an hour, one would expect a reaction, if the thing was indeed unknown?
I do think all cases like this are interesting, obviously something was in the sky, but what that was is what I find interesting. I am wondering if this was not some sort of experimental blimp. The Hindenberg was a recent event at the time, and the rigid airship was such a success I feel some may have tried to yet again improve on design, as had happened many times in the 20 previous years. I feel an early "black ops" possibility is worth investigating. Just an initial thought.

I feel Patrick Huyghe shows that the connection you and Sky mentioned earlier between UFO's and military bases is inferred, not a statistic in his publication Swamp Gas Times.

Cheers.

Hey Psyche, the 'blimp explanation' is certainly a start at a prosaic evaluation and, although the reported flight characteristics and electromagnetic interference effects described by the pilot crew, ground/air radar screens and Bluebook scientist Dr Hynek doesn't seem to tally with this opinion I salute you for attempting to offer a down to earth solution - anything has got to better than the completely contrived and intellectualy dishonest 'official' debunk (twinkling stars).
  
Here's another interesting article about the case from Thomas Tullen and it does contain this witness sketch of the object from Captain Brad Runyon:

Hi Karl,

I can remember when I was discussing the Minot AFB UFO incident, it was during the time we had our air show, and guess where the Air Force placed my exhibition booth? Right next to a B-52 from Minot AFB. So, I decided to have a little chat with the air crew. I took a photo of my booth situated behind that B-52.

I can safely say that the Minot AFB incident occurred as reported. Sometimes, it helps to be in the right place at the right time and during all of my years in the Air Force, I have been in the right place many times.

I have been very busy lately preparing for my participation for an air show this weekend.

Hey Sky, hope the Air show went well and thanks for posting the photograph of the B-52 involved in the Minot incident (which is certainly a nice piece of ufological history   B)   )

There's a good Herald Tribune article below about the case posted by a friend on another board and I did find myself nodding in agreement at this snippet.   :yes:

...Blue Book’s faulty reconstruction of this event would be scandalous had it been instigated by anything other than UFOs

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.
