Jokey comments (of course!) and a little thread drift is fine. But let's try to exercise some self discipline here and not forget what this thread is about.
Is that fair comment?

if a man truly vanished before the others where did he go? and why him and not a commanding officer of the group?

My RFI care-o-meter has been in the red for years. It's up there with Roswell and hasn't interested me since all the BS about binary codes and the notorious notepad/wizard's hat.
(like The GUT, I can't get past Brazel finding a pile of broken sticks and tin foil on 14th June before Arnold's sighting). I think the RFI, however, trumps Roswell by a considerable margin,

I'm reading Nick Redfern's "Control: MKUltra, Chemtrails and the Conspiracy to Suppress the Masses"
it's not his best work. The man alternates between really good and "has to pay the rent".
I mention this book, because it's published in 2017 and he has a chapter on RFI.
He's going with the 'it was a test on the soldiers' thing..
which I'm not necessarily disagreeing with completely, but here's the two points
I bring up about that:
1) do they really have to test on nuclear-armed facilities? That just seems
2) Holt, etc, certainly didn't seem to 'get the memo' about the test.. maybe
it's just me.. but he seemed plenty confused himself. Of course it's possible
that NO BASE PERSONNEL were in the loop.. but that doesn't sound like
the military I know. Could be wrong.
More generally, where the whole theory falls down is on the idea that you'd
concoct a UFO encounter as a cover story. There would have been no need.
You'd simply tell those personnel concerned that they’d been involved in an
exercise, that the details were classified and that they weren't to talk
about it. Most, if not all, would have complied.
In 1958, he concluded his MSc in the same department and then joined the Royal Aircraft Establishment, working on structural numerical modelling.
By the early 1970s, he became the head of the aerodynamics department and then took over all research on structures, aerodynamics, and new materials such as carbon composites in 1978. Shortly afterwards, he became responsible for weapons research.
In 1981 he moved to the MoD HQ, where he was assistant chief scientific adviser and then deputy controller and adviser in research and technology.....

I'm willing to accept that the specific RFI incident over 3-4 days could have been a test, most certainly.. but also a simple accident as well.
