Just a heads up that next Tuesday night at 10.00pm the HIstory Channel debuts the first episode of "Project Blue Book."
I am very much looking forward to this series. The first episode is called " The Fuller Dogfight", and it deals with a Pilot's encounter with an unidentified object.

The first episode is based on this incident.

The government tried to explain the lights as a weather balloon. This incident was a 27 minute in air, encounter. The incident was recorded both on the ground and in the sky according to reputable sources.



At the time of the incident, Gorman, a 25-year-old former fighter pilot, served as a second lieutenant in the North Dakota Air National Guard. It was this role that placed him behind the flight controls of a P-51 Mustang on Oct. 1, 1948, taking part in a cross-country flight alongside other National Guard airmen. While the other pilots landed at Fargo’s Hector Airport, on that fateful evening Gorman stayed in the air in order to get in some night-flying time in the cloudless conditions. Having circled his P-51 over a lighted football stadium, he was preparing to land at about 9 P.M. Advised by the control tower that the only other plane in the vicinity was a Piper Cub (which Gorman could see about 500 feet below him), he witnessed what he believed to be the taillight of another craft passing on the right, though the tower had no other object on the radar.


He described what he saw:




“It was about six to eight inches in diameter, clear white and completely without fuzz at the edges,” he said of the object in his report. “It was blinking on and off. As I approached, however, the light suddenly became steady and pulled into a sharp left bank. I thought it was making a pass at the tower.”


Gorman then talks about the dogfight:


Deciding to follow, Gorman tried in vain to catch up with the object, reporting that he finally got behind it at around 7,000 feet, where it made a sharp turn and headed straight for the P-51. Almost at the point of collision Gorman dived and said the light passed over his canopy at about 500 feet before cutting sharply once more and heading back in his direction. Just as collision seemed imminent once again, Gorman said the object shot straight up in the air in a steep climb—so steep that when he tried to intercept, his plane stalled at about 14,000 feet. The object was not seen again, but according to Gorman he had been engaged in aerial maneuvers with it for 27 minutes by the time he brought his plane in to land.



Pilot said he thought there was definite thought behind the ufo's maneuvers:




Shaken by the encounter, the pilot went on to report he noticed no sound, exhaust trail or odor from the object. And while he had reached speeds of up to 400 m.p.h. while in pursuit—he couldn’t keep up with whatever it was. “I am convinced that there was definite thought behind its maneuvers,” Gorman said in a sworn statement to his commander. “I am further convinced that the object was governed by the laws of inertia because its acceleration was rapid but not immediate; and although it was able to turn fairly tight at considerable speed, it still followed a natural curve.” Gorman reported blacking out temporarily due to the excessive speed he reached in attempting to turn with the object. “I am in fairly good physical condition and I do not believe that there are many, if any, pilots who could withstand the turn and speed effected by the object, and remain conscious,” he wrote. “The object was not only able to out-turn and out-speed my aircraft... but was able to attain a far steeper climb and was able to maintain a constant rate of climb far in excess of my aircraft.”

If a story of Project Blue Book is public , you can bet the farm that's the way it was
It is the 75% still classified and under guard that is concerning

it is getting a lot of advertising to be sure. If your really into government cover ups as am I, it is bound to be at the least quite entertaining I should think. And IMO, there has been a lot of government ufo cover ups.

I noted in the ad the key words 'based upon'. So I think it's going to come off like an updated X-Files. Got my PVR set, but my expectations are kinda lukewarm.
Bring back Dark Skies.

I'm looking forward to it from a good yarn perspective. Not expecting anything mind blowing.

Also Little Finger is playing Hynek, so there's that.

Definitely how it's going to be. In the latest commercial I saw, they were playing it up like Hynek was being chased by government agents and they were talking about how they were going to have to eliminate him if he got too close to the truth. Looks like the show is going to be more drama than actual fact, so I'll probably skip it.

Got the dvr set. I just hope it doesn’t go into a sci-fi fantasy.

The 'Live Sciene' website had a fairly sloppy story about the series here, and sparked an active comments process.

www.livescience.com...

“Other unnerving encounters with UFOs were directly observed midair by pilots, who are trained to recognize unexpected sights that may appear during challenging flight conditions. This makes their descriptions of UFOs harder to dismiss as delusional…”

I'm going to avoid it for the moment...spoilers and such. But what's your quick take a a researcher, Jim?
Disclosure - entertainment - both - neither?

The coolest era.
The coolest clothes, houses, cars.
The coolest sets.

Splash it with early UFOlogy and classic Paranormal and I'm sold!
Really liked it.
Awesome fun.

Don't expect disclosure from History Channel on stories we all already know.
Just sit back and enjoy

I watched most of it.. (normal work day of 5 am to 5 pm) I was entertained, Ill check it out in the future and think it will be a really good once the cast has some time to gel.

I don't think we will get anything earth shattering from it, but should be worth a watch to most people.
