It happens that when people hear some story mentioning ufo (which is a day to day term for those in air force and has nothing to do with ET), they
quickly equate it with ET and spawn some mysterious story out of it.
I'm not sure what you are saying is true about the alleged discovery of the F-89 that went missing Nov. 23, 1953.
The original claims were presented in an email that was forwarded by Francis Ridge to the UFO Updates list. The email contained an AP news wire story
which supposedly originated from Port Huron, Michigan.
The story made the claims that the Great Lakes Dive Company of Michigan (NOT Great Lakes Diving Company) had found the F-89 using side scan sonar. A
website soon appeared on the Internet containing alleged sonar images of the F-89. These were later augmented by alleged sonar images of an alleged
metallic disk found near the alleged F-89 about one thousand feet deep in the middle of Lake Superior. For a while, GLDC's alleged spokesman, who went
by the name "Alex Jimenez", ran a discussion forum on the website. All of this abruptly disappeared after some people began flooding the forum asking
too many questions.
MUFON's James Carrion conducted an investigation into the claims and was not able to substantiate any. Certain UFO investigators continued to claim
they were just "laying low" until the story/hoax just withered away (much like we are likely to see with the Chad/CARET/Isaac "drone" photos).

Note that there is no dispute that the F-89 did disappear over Lake Superior on Nov. 23, 1953 after it was observed on radar merging with the bogie or
UFO it was sent to identify. The F-89 still awaits discovery although it is possible that some fighter jet parts found near the east shore of Lake
Superior may have belonged to the missing F-89 from Kinross (the identity of the fighter jet parts was never released by the RCAF or USAF).
