The guys at ttsa just are not too clever when it comes to analysing their own videos…
In their analysis of the ‘go fast’ video
, they state:
The unidentified vehicle appears as a white oval shape moving at high speed from top right to lower left of the screen flying very low over the
But in the video, right when the ATFLIR locks onto the object at 1:34, you can see that:
- The F18 is at an altitude of 25.000 feet above the water, flying level
- The ATFLIR is looking slightly down from the F18, at an angle of 26 degrees, straight at the object
- The object it at a distance of 4.4 Nautical Miles = 26.735 feet from the F18
If the object was really flying just above the water surface AND the ATFLIR is looking at it at a shallow angle of just 26 degrees from an F18 flying
at 25.000 feet, it would be much farther away.
In fact, the actual altitude of the object can easily be calculated from the data in the ATFLIR screen at 1:34 in the video:
- The difference in altitude between the F18 and the object is 26.735 x sin(26 degrees) = 11.720 feet.
- The F18 is at an altitude of 25.000 feet so the object is at an altitude of 25.000 – 11.720 = 13.280 feet.
So the object is not ‘very low above the water’ as ‘analysed’ by ttsa, but about halfway between the jet and the water in altitude. This means
that the apparent speed of the object is highly exaggerated by the parallax effect.
Why ttsa fails to see this straightforward calculation from the data staring them right in the face in the ATFLIR screen is beyond me…
Maybe they do not have the budget for a calculator, so [please donate]
