Is L.A. a hotspot bc it has something to do with its EM field being stronger due to leylines and em energy vortexes?
Or are you familiar with this theory of the geomagnetic grid?

There's no such thing as "ley lines".
From 1960 the ley theory took on a new lease of life, one that has led to the modern New Age notion of 'ley lines'.
An ex-R.A.F. pilot, Tony Wedd, was very interested in flying saucers, or UFOs. He had read Watkins' The Old Straight Track and also a French book, Flying Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery (1958) by Aimé Michel, in which it was (falsely) suggested that the locations where flying saucers landed or hovered very low during the 1954 French flying saucer outbreak or 'wave' fell into straight lines or 'orthotenies'.
Wedd made the excited conclusion that Watkins' 'leys' and Michel's 'orthotenies' were one and the same phenomenon. He had also read an American book by Buck Nelson called My Trip to Mars, the Moon and Venus (1956) in which Rogers claimed to have flown in UFOs, and to have witnessed them picking up energy from 'magnetic currents' flowing through the Earth.

I like that idea. Clever.
Now I think the bits of A*0's story are coming together..... It's 80% B.S. but perhaps intentionally deceptive yet partially based in fact BS, all because it's based on this project.
It's clear that A*0 had some actual reasonably professional aerospace knowledge. He popped an interesting SBIR or something from 1990 about engines from somebody I've never heard of and I've forgotten now. Checked out.
So now They are making these triangles and they'll be testing over populated areas. And more people will see them. How do you cause confusion? Science fiction story to the gullible conspiracy theorists, mixed in with just a bit of fact.
A*0 says that they are supercomputers beaming up your dreaming thoughts. Well, not quite, but they are heavily electronic and they are beaming up your tweets & calls.
Suppose you got the IMEI of the phone of a particular turbaned doer-of-evil on a certain List.
What if you could fly really fast, and your targeting computer could dynamically listen for that one particular cell phone (has to be pretty short range) in real time and geolocate it, and transmit it right into the firing solution.
Another weekend, another fly-by shooting in South LA again.
SAM site, cell phone, whatever---if it squawks it talks. At such low altitudes possibly could it pick up the 'idle' of a SAM site radar and computer even when they're not officially transmitting through the powerful beam?

But I'm not sure how the fiction aspects fit in especially since that was apparently a long and fairly complicated process that included convincing dozens they were forevermen?
I understand the 75/25 concept, but so far I'm having trouble making it work with the behind the scenes details that have been reported.
At any location, the Earth's magnetic field can be represented by a three-dimensional vector (see figure). A typical procedure for measuring its direction is to use a compass to determine the direction of magnetic North. Its angle relative to true North is the declination (D) or variation. Facing magnetic North, the angle the field makes with the horizontal is the inclination (I) or dip. The intensity (F) of the field is proportional to the force it exerts on a magnet. Another common representation is in X (North), Y (East) and Z (Down) coordinates.
The intensity of the field is often measured in gauss (G), but is generally reported in nanotesla (nT), with 1 G = 100,000 nT. A nanotesla is also referred to as a gamma (γ). The tesla is the SI unit of the Magnetic field, B. The field ranges between approximately 25,000 and 65,000 nT (0.25–0.65 G). By comparison, a strong refrigerator magnet has a field of about 100 gauss (0.010 T).
A map of intensity contours is called an isodynamic chart. As the 2010 World Magnetic Model shows, the intensity tends to decrease from the poles to the equator. A minimum intensity occurs over South America while there are maxima over northern Canada, Siberia, and the coast of Antarctica south of Australia.
Do you accept that geomagnetism is a real thing?

I've got a serious problem buying in. Stealth blimp? Sure. Plasma for all sorts of useful application, including reducing drag and signature, and enhancing thrust (generated more conventionally)? Definitely. This weird particular combination of a graphene rigid airship, using ions for thrust and sound waves (how are we physically moving things to create the sound waves again? I'm not sure what the efficiency of moving something by sound is compared to a turbofan engine, but I'm confident it compares extremely poorly), all while quietly hoovering up EM signals through the large amounts of plasma while cruising over LA? You've lost me, but I'm willing to be educated if someone's up to it.
