Airship to conduct aerial search for Bigfoot

Known as the 'Falcon Project', the new hunt will be co-ordinated through Idaho State University.

The ambitious endeavor will use an Aurora Mk II airship laden with thermal imaging and high resolution wireless videography equipment to scour the forests of North America for signs of the elusive hominid. An airship was chosen because it provides better maneuverability than a helicopter and is far quieter, allowing it to pass overhead with minimal disturbance.

With over 17 years experience investigating the Bigfoot phenomenon, author and researcher Dr. Jeff Meldrum will be acting as the project's principal investigator. William Barnes, having encountered the creature himself in 1997, is the project founder and manager. Barnes hopes to not only prove that Bigfoot exists but to lay the groundwork for future research and protection of the species.

"The Falcon Project proposes to conduct an extensive aerial search for an unrecognized North American primate, a."

Hey, I am guilty also Although, I only watch it when channel surfing, and nothing else on...But, still guilty.

Yeah, I record it and watch it late late night or when nothing else is on. It scares my daughter...The Team not bigfoot.

I see it occasionally....If I leave it on more then 15 minutes, it is to laugh really, and to see what new " idea " they have that Bigfoot enjoys. I shake my head a lot, but, it is more a comedy show for me....Also sitting there wondering how many people are thinking it is serious?

I have a PM back from Nightwalker I asked my wife over the weekend to let me know when the kids go on holidays, when it all happens, that sort of thing so I can get some dates aside to work something out.

I did like the Vermont trail cam photo from two years ago that was shown on tonight's episode. Mama (with oil on her coat, vitiligo, or mange) and baby gathering apples off the ground. So very Norman Rockwellian.

Same here, my kids like to watch the show and I'm constantly pointing out the subjective nature of the 'investigations'. "We heard you the first hundred times dad" is usually the response I get now though . I am not about to let them think for one moment that this is how scientific research is done.

You won't regret it if you can work it out. Good luck! I was taken to a sighting location in Sept. and found a possible shelter. It appears natural, very large, and darn near impenetrable. Maybe someone would let me borrow an airship to check it out from above?? lol.. not. I'll have to do it the ol fashion way and explore it myself when hunting season is over.

Aw, I was all set on Mama and baby. Rockwell never did any ghillie suits.

Matt is so full of himself. His arguements are all simple engineering issues, not "impossible feats that can never be countered". Sounds like a bunch of Sour Grapes to me. It was not his idea, he's not managing it, he has no direct input and... thus, gets zero of the credit if anything positive happens. OK. I understand your statement now.
