Well, the claim is, of course, that he was aboard himself to sweep for bugs and other threats. That portion of the story is almost as long as the
actual encounter, if not longer.
I have not read the rest of the book, but I think what he allegedly presents is "cases" from his "career".
There are, as has already been raised in the thread by myself and others, some red flags.
1. No civilian CEO ever gets a shadow escort from the airforce, no matter what his company might be, as remarked by Bedlam.
2. The only reference to a height is given about ten minutes or so before the encounter and is then about 7000 feet when the plane levels out. I am
guessing he knows the height they are going to fly at from a previous briefing because how would he know if not? He is in the cabin after all. Some
feel this is too low to be realistic for a Cessna Citation.
3. The system used to try to identify the unknown craft is described in much detail. It is given as the ADVIS system and uses OCR like functionality
and pattern recognition to match unknown aircraft to a database of knowns. No such system is known to exist, and the actual ADVIS system seems to be
connected to ground monitoring of crops and such.
4. He claims the crew were interviewed by Air Special Investigations upon landing at their destination. Which is an odd term for AFOSI. We don't know
where the plane landed four hours later, but it might be somewhere in Canada if approx four hours flight is sufficient time in this plane to get
there. He makes reference to the Official Secrets Act which might also be a pointer towards Canada. Or might be a sign it is all made up.
5. He claims the affair, and his report no less, is featured on the backcover on a "Conspiracy book" and was released from a FOIA request in redacted
form. Nobody has (so far) come forward with any knowledge of which book this might be, and I have not been able to find it. The story is also not
very well known, which is even more odd if it was featured on the back cover of a published book as a "teaser" to buy the book.
6. It would also seem the author has a lot of ttitles he might have purchased at a diploma mill, according to some.
So, although it is a neat little story, it is also starting to smell a little.
It is almost, in fact, now difficult to see the UFO for all those red flags fluttering at 7000 feet :-)
