No, Apparently none of us here at ATS has been so fortunate as to witness the Black Bird in flight over Cyprus recently. Instead of ripping you apart
for even suggesting such a thing I propose that we all unwad our panties and respond when and if we see the Black Bird flying again. Good luck in your
quest for proof on this matter.
at the risk of dragging this poor dead horse out for another beasting it never deserved
you are wrong , and backing the wrong horse -- the dead horse infact
greebos established MO is to post wild and vague claims that were forwarded to him bu a mysterious friend or friend of a friend [ FOAF ] .
when these claims are tested , the only person who gets steamed here is greebo himself
in this instance :
it was explained whyy JP-7 fuel is still produced , bunkered and used by various test programs and one operational aircraft
the fate of the " special " tanker fleet - was also explained to him - as was why they are still flying
the fate and location of the surviving b/bird fleet [ all in museums ] was documented
the official documents regarding the closure of the SR-71 program were cited
the implausibility of flying 2 sr-71 aircraft 24/7 - [you would ned a bigger fleet to allow for servicing , training and repairs ]
all this was dismissed as " govt disinfo "
i finally wrote a short article on the number of potential witnesses that must be ignoring the b/bird flights [ if they actually exist ] at akratiri .
and how every other aircraft that flys out of even the most obscure publicly viewable location , day or night -- is reported by aircraft spotters in
print and web journals
but greebo would have none of this --- accepting the word of his anonymous " mate " - who has [ aledgedly ] the proof - that has not yet
none of these explainations were reffuted , or even challenged sensibly
greebo just went of on a name calling spat , when he did post photos - they were not the ones he claimed he had -- and edited and renamed to
obsfucate thier source and context .
when the aircraft experts correctly identified them and posted the origionals , more histronics followed
so just who had thier " panties wadded " ???
we are STILL waiting for the picture of the b/bird in an akratiri hanger -- why hasnt that been produced
the bottom line is that burden of proof is on the positive claimant , and typically greebo failed to deliver .
ATS is not a hoax friendly place - if people dont like that they should research thier claims better and submit credible evidence
