I remember the Foxbat defection (a vectored thrust Mig, if I remeber correctly). It wasn't a secret for most of the world.
But why would an AF person know about a secret Army weapons research facility off Long Island?
Sorry but he sounds like he's been listening to Art Bell.

I have a friend that is a NASEU Engineer (Naval aviation engineering service unit), but he worked on Naval submarine hunter aircraft, the P3 Orions. He told me the second day that 800 was taken down by a surface to air missile. I don't know if it is correct, but he said those missiles are meant to fly by the aircraft and circle back and detonate. There was witnesses that said they saw a light (fireball) ascend from the ocean and loop back and then they saw the aircraft blow up. I take everything with a grain of salt, but that is what I was told and I believe he would know based on his being an aircraft engineer. I will probably be flamed for saying that, but I could care less.
