A few things I don't understand. First off back in 97' there was alot of coverage of the sighting. Alot of people got exicited. After seeing how the public reacted, one would think that the air force would not run these tests of flares. Secondly if they were to continue testing do so where it would not be visible to the city of Phoenix. Thirdly, they say they do these test all the time, why are they not seen more often. Things just don't add up for me. I have seen the video and am amazed how the 3 seem to be perfectly horizontal. It confuses me as flares being droped from a plane(maybe a chopper) would be at slightly different altitudes. Also the one in the top left corner that the media failed to mention. Hell if I was that reporter I would have told the pilot to get closer, for a better shot or just to jugde the distance away from the city(looks right over it to me). Verifying the location is key to the claim that they were droped over a military area. It would have taken minutes to fly across the city. Why didn't they? Probable the USAF told them to stay put. Very fishy.
Anyways, later guys.

It's been awhile, but I think if you take 91st ave south of baseline you can hook up with it. It takes you all the way behind south mtn. and almost to maricopa.

The military knows well what occurred in 97. If they were going to do these exercises they could have said so they could have given date, time and so on that way people would have known but they didn't do this. However, it seems that they notified the news so they would have a copter up there and report, I don't think so.

Just my opinion on the stealth blimp, wouldn't a massive blimp sort of defeat the purpose of stealth?

Did the military folks actually say they drop the flares often, sometimes every couple weeks apart? With the clear weather in that region, would think there would be hundreds of videos, on different nights.
Years ago I watched a show in which the color given off the lights in Phoenix were analyzed, compared to the type of flares...and didn't add up. This might be a place to start this time. Since the military is so talkative, find out the type of flares used...

If these were to be military flares, why weren't they seen before the 10 year mark? Why weren't they a relatively common sight for the people of Phoenix?
The fact that they have only just returned as it is nearing the 10th anniversary of the original event makes one wonder is Phoenix being monitored for something by something otherworldly?
