Bob Beckwith is an electrical engineer who holds many patents (many of which are in the military naval arena). He wrote a book that claimed the real
Philadelphia Experiment involved a minesweeper and not a destroyer. Plus the locale was not around Philadelphia.
All of this was based on something that Tesla accidentally discovered on his workbench in 1899. The application of strong magnetic fields caused an
object to move backwards along a pre-established history time path.
Advanced German mines were causing problems for the Allied in WWII. Their magnetic-homing mines would be anchored at the sea floor and released after
counting so many ships in a convoy. When they surfaced, the ships had no time for evasive action.
It was the intent of this new technology -- according to Beckwith who said that he personally oversaw the Experiment -- to allow the minesweepers to
retrace their path (so to speak) so they would have a better chance of detonating the mines safely. They only need 10 minutes-or-so.
But what they got was 2 WEEKS! Plus all the side effects that happened to the crew that goes along with the regular P-X story. And it was never the
intent to make a ship "radar invisible". That was one of the accidental side effects to a physical object undergoing this
I first heard of his book from an interview he did with Alexandra "Chica" Bruce for her excellent book (The Philadelphia Experiment Murder). Her
interview -- along with Tim Ventura's ("American AntiGravity") review and Beckwith's ebook -- is archived at

Sherman originally did the same thing with his Above Black: Project Preserve Destiny but has apparently since retracted the offer. You might also
want to scroll a couple of lines up from this position on the webpage to read WWII vet Bob King's account which seems to validate Beckwith's story
Beckwith's tale reminds me of Corso's book. (Indeed, Beckwith mentions Corso in his book and said that Corso told him personally of the
"Experiment".) Some incredible stories mixed in with a lot of personal job duties. The skeptics would say a good recipe for disinformation.
(To me, it was so much what Beckwith said but what he didn't comment on. He hinted that it would surprise him if research into eliminating the
disastrous effects on the crew was not pursued. This was allegedly the purpose of Project Phoenix which later became the Montauk Project. This is
not front-page news anymore. Surely he has heard of these guys. But he didn't comment on it. Did everything else but, however!)
It is rare to find one of these people with so much government service to come forward in their "prime" (i.e., working years and not after they have
long retired). Like Bob Lazar did. It makes you wonder if they are supplementing their pensions with doing some service -- and not
"whistleblowing" to ease their consciences before they die -- for their former employers. Plus you always see them at UFO conferences but in the
role of an aloof observer rather than an active participant. (Read Mike D'Agostino's account of meeting Beckwith at such a conference at the #Chica
