Okay, bear with me here, because I think I might be on to something...
I did some thinking this morning about possible methods for independent verification of the FDR Documents posted above. There are some qualified
statements in that memo, which can be subjected to research. I found one, and I'd like to illustrate where the search led...
The statement I picked came from the March 5th, 1942 memo here:
The statement was (to my reading):
"The Army Air Corps also recovered a similar (_____) in the San Bernardino Mountains East of Los Angeles, which cannot be identified as conventional
aircraft. This Headquarters has come to a determination that the mystery airplanes are in fact not earthly and according to secret intelligence
sources they are in all probability of interplanetary origin."
The memo then goes on to order further study of this object.
Now, if this memo is indeed authentic, what would you do, in if you were in the position of commanding the further study of such a craft?
I can't offer my conclusions as fact, however, if in that position...
I would order the immediate establishment of an Army Base, surrounding the entire crash site, and tell the public that reports of a downed plane were
So, in scientific terms, as to the theory that this memo may be authentic, I used the memo in order to make a prediction. That prediction can then be
Thus I began my search online for confirmation of that particular statement in the public record...
Here is what I found:
George Air Force Base (Originally Victorville Army Airfield) - Located in the San Bernardino Mountains, Victorville, California, is located here on
Very possible for a crash site, from a plane fired upon in Santa Monica...
I did some research on the Base, and found that NO KIDDING...
"George AFB, originally called the Victorville Army Airfield, was constructed between 1941 and 1943 as a flight training school. After World War II,
the base was placed on standby status and used for surplus aircraft storage. The base was reopened in 1950 under the command of the newly created U.S.
Air Force and renamed George Air Force Base. Flight training remained the primary mission of this base throughout its history and a number of bomber,
glider, single engine, twin engine, and jet fighter aircrafts were flown there. George AFB was a major training facility for the Air Force's F-4
Phantom and was the home of the 35th Tactical Fighter Wing (U.S. Air Force, 1997c)."
From the source:
Now here's where it gets even more interesting...
The base is now closed, and fenced off. I wondered why, and found that there were signs of health hazards there. And not just spilled Jet Fuel
(something we would expect from an aircraft training facility...)
There were radiological contamination risks!
"A small amount of radioactive material was discovered and removed from a portion of the Southeast Disposal Area (SEDA). Radiation surveys and
exploratory soil excavation indicate that this area and the two munitions storage areas were not used for disposal of significant quantities of
radioactive waste. Although people using the SEDA for recreation in the past may have been exposed to small amounts of low-level radioactive material,
such exposures would have been infrequent and of short duration and would not be expected to pose a health hazard. The SEDA has recently been fenced
and its landfill cover has been rehabilitated. The George AFB property located south of Air Base Road, which includes the SEDA, has been transferred
to the Federal Bureau of Prisons and will be the site of a prison that is currently under construction; the SEDA will remain fenced and will be within
the fenceline of the prison."
Now quick math applies here, Radioactive levels surveyed in 1992 (When George Air Force Base was decommissioned) found the above results...
There are methods for dating objects, using Radioactive decay, that could apply here, if we knew the exact readings on radiation detected in the area.
"When an organism dies the carbon-14 slowly decays, so the proportion of C-14 is reduced over time. Carbon-14 has a half life of 5730 years, making
it very useful for measuring ages of objects that are a few thousand to several tens of thousands of years old. To measure the age of something, then,
you measure the activity of carbon-14, and compare it to the activity you'd expect it to have if it was brand new. Plugging these numbers into the
decay equation along with the half-life, you can calculate the time period over which the nuclei decayed, which is the age of the object. "
although this method really only works on the 1000's of years timelines, we could find a strange result that could influence the data set in this
Just a thought...
If we new the source of the gamma radiation present, that would also enable us to determine that isotope's halflife, further dating the material.
Here is a good informational page on Radioactive decay, for those interested...
At any rate, I find it very interesting that an Army Air Base WAS indeed constructed at the right time, and in the right place, to have been an
ordered response to the BOLA event, cited in the FDR memo.
I find it even more interesting that there were significant amounts of radiation detected on the site, after more than five decades since the proposed
Thoughts on this new information fellow ATS researchers???
I'd love to hear them!
