Should be interesting how many threads get started about UFO's spotted
due to this test.
Or, the conspiracy peeps claiming that it's actually ET visiting us in the open and disclosure is "just around the corner".


On the other hand, it would be interesting to know how the balloons test
the NBC (Nuclear,Biological,Chemical) preparedness of the building.

Nice find, and thanks for the heads up !

Edited : Dang Mech32, you posted while I was typing !! I missed the scoop
by >< this much !

I'm very glad that the pentagon will be able to test their defenses against incoming baloons. I sure hope they don't throw heavy ordinance at them or the balloons might fall down in traffic on I-395. :-) Definitely need to run tests on their anti-balloon pulsar laser technology.

Did they use 99 of them?

Were they Red?

^^ LMAO.
Thanks, Nygdan, for brightening an otherwise dreary Mardis Gras day.

Quick! Grab your cams! Look for any Grey-blued, weighted manequins attached. 'Nother Roswell in the making.

BTW, if it looks like Cheney -- they're just testing a new Nitro-glyc filled balloon structure.

so they have laser guided weapons defenses and star wars laser missle defenses. what in the world are 3 balloons going to do against a chemical or nuclear attack?

"Officials would not say what role the balloons play in protecting the building against chemical and biological weapons, or when during the day they will be lifted"

probably cause they dont do anything

I don't see why the ballons could'nt have radar jamming equipment, or even have weapons mounted on them that would fire at any incomming missiles or planes. Seems like it'd be good to have some sort of airborne defense on site, and a balloon would be a good way to do it (depending on how fast it can be inflated or whatever).

This was attempted in WWII over England with minimal success. Small charges were placed on small deribles in an intitial attempt to thwart the V-Buzz-Bombs.

Trouble is, they tend to react with wind a little too much and jostle any equipment that may be attached. Maybe causing erratic patterns, bad firing ranges, or an unstable platform for static charges.

Then there's always the Smilex gas, I wonder who'll they'll pick to throw used $20s to the gathered throng.

I was just about to post regarding the wind.

Wind would indeed be troublesome. Unless of course, some sort of mechanism could be placed on the ballon to counter the effects of wind. (some sort of propeller apparatus?)

But even that would probably be rendered useless in heavy winds.

Recently, just such a device was created to handle these sorts of issues.




Its also useful for 2-dimensional wind-absorbing platforms. Especially the modern Tri-angular versions.

Your'e joking, right?

all the time I lived near washington, they never did this kind of test.

odd, but what isn't coming from the pentagon.

I'll be watching and filming if my buddy can get there fast enough.

Anybody else getting video?

Yeah, string prolly wouldn't work, might need rope.

Actually, to stabilize an aloft balloon, most use the deflation technique. This allows for the wind to enter into a concave section which provides a pressure area.

Of course, with all the "Hot Air" behind this, good luck.

I feel a little odd about this. What if the balloons are there to cover something else up?

If real UFOs show up, "hee, hee, just balloons."

I don't know, maybe not.

Personnally, I think they've found a way to disrupt energy patterns. Accounts of distortions are very high these days.

These so-called balloons are a "celebration" of sorts, providing the essential tell-all, hot-air-filled, cover-up.
