OK, there are arguments that this is not an UFO case (women may have been already ill although it looks that they had the same package of symptoms; and may have seen mirage of Canopus) but...what were 12 helicopters doing there? You don't see 12 Chinook-type helicopters every day. Eyewitnesses in this case are credible.

Sigh.  Yes, what reason could they possibly have for making **** up?

It's deffo proven then.  Congrats.  :wacko: 

 

Seriously, there are holes the size of a blind elephant in this story, and not one shred of evidence, not even of their alleged injuries.  Plus that Wiki article is missing a whole pile of cites.  All in all... a pretty typical UFO=alienz case.

Can you give example of holes in this story?

Also, what pile of cites?

In Wikipedia these witnesses are described as reliable.

Oh, by the way there is a book on this topic written by NASA engineer

https://www.amazon.in/Cash-Landrum-UFO-Incident-John-Schuessler/dp/1519696558

This looks like an interesting read.

I see 12 Chinooks almost every day. Also, Blackhawks and Apaches. Not that rare really, there are National Guard units that have lots and lots of Chinooks.

I wouldn't stress much Truman.  There are a couple here who's greatest joy in life is taking a big old dump on others from their lofty perch, high above the dimwitted commoners.

Mate, you could use Wikipedia to describe the witnesses as daschunds.

All it takes is a casual search of military installations nearby. You'll find the home of the mysterious and inexplicable choppers.

Where we used to live we rarely saw Chinooks, but squadrons of Apaches and/or Blackhawks every 2 to 3 days.

yep, the ufo, allegedly, created so much heat she burned her hand on the car door handle.

She was standing next to the car so why was she not burned to a crisp?

Personally I've discussed this case a thousand times over & the replies to this question from those who believe it happened have been amusing

You really dig these played out well debunked tales.

12 Choppers ? I read this case too many times too many places with too much contradictory accounts, like number of choppers, that btw it was never proven even one chopper was there now was it?

Sorry, eyewitnesses are never credible, even sincerity does mean a person isnt wrong, hoaxed, lying or mentally ill etc.

After all the research i have done on this case i have come to a conclusion that they might have saw something that was the seed to make up the rest.

Not unlike other such cases like betty barney hill and travis Walton.

One of the things I learned about this incident is that they could not find where the event happened despite the author of the book claiming otherwise.

Quote

Claimed physical traces from the in-
cident seem to be among the strongest
pieces of evidence supporting the case.
Collins writes, “When discussing the
case, Schuessler told how the witnesses
were able to return to the precise loca-
tion, and that the scene contained some
identifiable, distinct features”

Quote

I then asked Mr. Schuessler if he had
pin-pointed the location of the siting
[sic]. Mr. Schuessler stated that due
to the late hour and the ladies’ emo-
tional state they could only state that
they believed they saw the object
on the straight portion of FR 1485
between a beer joint and some kind
of highway warning sign.

The ladies never could pin point exacally where so when the true believer ufo writer gets involved he decides it happened where some road work happened, you know toss in the slant of coverup, worked out well if your agenda is to make $$$.
