I found the links I was promising and they aren't related to the actual claim in the OP's news link. I saw the image of that smoke cloud and was
reminded of talking with Mirageman in a Valentich thread from right here.
rereading the thread gave me good buzz of nostalgia as the full Scooby Doo UFO team were all out in force
Having read the article, not so sure how far it'll go. Hard to picture a 30m UFO with an 8m airplane attached to it. Even if the farmer's tractor is
held in evidence, there's no apparent way to prove the plane's ID was scratched into the paintwork before it was national news.
Like Gortex points out, the tape recording is practically MIA and not available for us peasants. Dick Haines has an original copy and it's anyone's
guess how useful it'd be insofar as 'solving' the case. I think IsaacKoi was halfway to gaining access to the tape although that seems like quite a
while ago. Curiosity value would be much higher than the odds of concluding the disappearance imo.
