My name is Prof. Edward Condon.
I'm here to open up a committee on why the Air Force should abandon Project Blue Book. To start off, I'd like to say that UFO's don't exist, and
that people who've seen them are all nuts. If you disagree with my opinion, you are nuts.
Now, let's look at the facts. So an F-89 vanished upon encountering a UFO detected on radar. Well, obviously, the Air Force's report on the
accident is absolutely correct. The F-89 collided with a canadian plane, exploaded at high altitude, exploded at low altitude, was lost due to pilot
vertigo, suffered engine failure, became lost and crashed outside the search area, and crashed in Canada, crashed in the lake... just as the US Air
Force has told the widows of the F-89's crew. However, that blob on the radar which engulfed it was, obviously, a radar malfunction. So, we're not
going to include this in our data. Next?
So, an RB-47 tracked a UFO for hundreds of miles on radar and other sensors, plus via the eyeballs of the crew. Well, obviously, all the instruments
in the Rb-47 were broken, and the entire crew was deranged. This won't be included in our data, either. Next?
So a F(P)-51 piloted by an experienced airman crashed in Kentucky chasing a UFO that everyone in his flight, plus the control tower nearest him,
saw... Well, as he crashed, that's an Air Incident report issue, better to be handled by the Air Force. Remove it from the data, here. Next?
So Roswell Army Air Field released a press briefing saying that they had recovered a flying disc in 1947, a press release that was certified and
cleared by the commanding general. Well, the next day they retracted it. Seems our intel officers, plus our commanding officers, don't know what a
balloon looks like. Next?
So a Brazilian naval officer, plus his crew, witnessed a UFO flying over an island. Well... he is a Brazilian, and we all know how South Americans
can be. Next?
So an experienced policeman saw a UFO. Well, cops are often stressed, so, nothing they say should really be recorded if it sounds odd. Next?
....and on, and on, until....
I, Edward Condon, conclude that the UFO issue is bunk. It turns out that my committee has, indeed, shown that it is the domain of nuts. Therefore,
just as this committee set out to do, we hereby recomend that Project Blue Book be closed. Please, if you have any UFOs to report, write your info
down and throw it in the grabage. You're obviously nuts or have just seen swamp gas.
