I have this nagging fealing that the US has secret projects (along with other countries) that can explain alot of this. Remember that triangular
planes that did not come up on radar were once an issue and then voila stealth fighters and bombers popped up. From what I read their method of
propulsion is not necessarily conventional - Not that I am knowledgable in this field. I assume you guys are more knowledgable than me. I am just
trying to make sense of this much like many others.
Why is it that many of the UFO sightings are in the south west US, where US military bases and military R&D is located (e.g. Area 51)?
Your assumptions are incorrect. US secret projects, or those of other countries, cannot explain 1/10th of the sightings reported by people. The
majority of sightings, from years ago to this day, are still not explained, even after our black projects became unclassified. Now unclassified
govornment aircraft cannot account for the vast majority of unexplained sightings. Even people who were aeronautics engineers, military test pilots,
ect, have seen things they could not explain and which they effectively ruled out as not our own.
Also, it is incorrect to assume that msot UFO sightings take place near military instalations. Quite the oposite, very few unexplained sightings come
from areas like this, as people in those areas are used to seeing unusual military craft in the skies.
Sightings have occured all over the world, and many occurred far from any military instalations. They have occured over major cities and in view of
thousands of people.
The sightings of most intense interest are those that are made by qualified observers (military and civilian pilots, police officers, military
personnel, scientists, politicans, educators, ect). These sightings also describe craft and maneuvers that in our current understanding of physics and
mechanics are theoretically impossible. Even with our secret aircraft projects and technology, we cannot counteract efefcts of gravity and inertia.
Many times, maneuvers described by witnesses of these craft would kill any human pilot of passenger onboard.
The UFO phenomenon is very complex, and even our most secret projects cannot come anywhere near close to describing these things.
Foo fighters were not only seen by the Allies, but German and Japanese military personnel also reported them, and after the war, we discovered they
were as concerned as we were about them. I highly doubt the whole phenomenon can be written off as nerves or ball lightning. The reports, especially
those seen by multiple witnesses are hard to discount as hallucinations, since many people saw them, and descriptions of metalic disks, spheres, and
cigars that paced planes, changed direction, ect, are hard to dismiss as St Elmo's fire or ball lightning.
