Thank you, I agree that to totally believe the USAF is like swallowing a handful of cyanide. It is poisonous to the mind. It is what creates sheeple. You must look at all the facts, not just blindly believe what some "Major in the Air Force" says,lol.

Let's hope everyone is not as naive as Kidflash.
It always seems to be a balloon doesn't it? It appears that is always the answer, nothing but a balloon, illusion or delusion.
Normally I do not respond to these types of remarks, but I must ask ET_MAN if he has read all of my threads and OPs? I do not attribute all the cases to weather balloons and am one who actually believes a disk crashed in Roswell. I also believe Betty and Barney Hill were abducted, and that there have been many really good cases of sightings of flying saucers. I also cite Colonel Gordon Cooper for his sightings of a formation of metallic disks.
This is one of the few cases where it could be a balloon. We cannot rule it out when it may be the answer. Seeing a balloon in flight from a distance may confuse some pilots. Col Cooper saw his fleet up close and was able to tell they were made of medal and were not ours or the Soviets.
Clements said that he was unable to make radio contact with Mantell, because of the strong electric field near the saucer, so Mantell continued the pursuit, within the colonel’s view. Mantell’s plane flew into tiny pieces and Mantell with it. There was no evidence or sighting of any weapons use. The two officers who were arguing with me had to eat crow, for there was a superior officer having direct personal knowledge of flying saucers, in a famous incident, to corroborate my argument. 1 thanked Clements for his honesty. The two other officers didn’t call him crazy.
My theory is that Mantell’s plane, at 500 mph., entered the saucer’s electric field, which gravitationally neutralized the front of the plane. As soon as his plane lost its charge, the front and rear of the plane shredded together and apart in every direction, due to the sudden effects of momentum and inertia. The Pentagon’s order to cease and desist was heard by Clements, but not by Mantell, and must have been intended to avoid such an incident, based on prior knowledge by Pentagon personnel as to what could happen.

Well it wasn't Venus, no record of baloons,
Why would he keep going knowing he would run out of oxygen.
I think I know.

An excellent question on my replies. Although I try to get a point across, I sometimes make misstatements. Let me try to clear up a few of the statements I made:
I was correct in stating I never implied anyone was lying. I just wanted to know where the quote was from. The problem in this field is that there are many quotes that have never been verified.
The pilot may have stated what was attributed to him, but that could of been due to the lack of oxygen. If you read the full report on the incident, there is a conclusion that the pilot had climbed too high and the stress on the aircraft caused the crash.
Again here is his blog on the Mantell case:
Here is another blog by Kevin Randle on another case:
