Another sonic boom heard?

ATS Thread

Alrighty, been following the multiple threads on this topic (I think each thread has it's own angle so that's understandable). I haven't had much time to be on ATS lately, so I just found out about this an hour ago and it blew me away.

First off, the booms and explosions being heard by many people is simply amazing and makes this incident even more mysterious. Without this factor, I think the answer to just what in the heck this thing is would be very wide ranging.

Second, the call to the radio station heard by some first hand and then the DJ mentioning it again within an hour or so, THEN completely denied as EVER even happening, speaks volumes.

Third, the fact that this "craft" wasn't even covered up is the most intriguing part of this puzzle. I tend to agree that it really doesn't matter whether or not it was covered up. One could go back and forth all day long with explanations for why it was/n't covered up. But, my opinion is that they didn't care if they covered it or not, anyone who saw it would still think it was UFO regardless because a tarp or sheet or whatever would still show it's distinctive shape. Building a structure around it to hide it's shape, to me, is not very practical or plausible because it requires more time (which they wouldn't have if they were worried about more and more people showing up who heard the booms/explosions) and extra materials that I don't think they would readily have on hand.

Fourth, the utter silence on the matter is deafening. Why isn't SOMEBODY commenting on this incident especially since people are freaking out about it? They could have just said, "We're transporting a military jet", "It's a prop for a movie", etc. But it seems like they are biding their time in order to think of something that will leave no room for reasonable doubt.

We all know how local news stations work. They jump on ANYTHING that will get people to tune in, so the very fact that, so far, not one local news station has even had a report of a "mysterious object being transported down the freeway getting people abuzz with rumors of a UFO", once again, speaks volumes.

Fifth, if this is a tactic for some viral marketing, once again, why the media silence and why did the radio station lie?

it's either:

A UFO
A movie prop
A viral marketing scheme
A military jet

As far as I can tell, those are the only options. By a process of elimination using the above factors as tools to decipher which is more likely, I, personally, can only infer that the UFO option is the most plausible. That is, unless and until some strong evidence, aside from authorities simply stating otherwise, lends credence to the contrary.

I really wish we can get to the bottom of this.

Good summary of everything we know so far. I hope the Mufon investigation brings more to light. I also hope that ArMap's genius can enhance these images and improve the quality. We can't let this one just fade away. There are not many UFO threads on ATS with this kind of solid tangible evidence. It would be a shame if it just faded off into the background.

On a further note, is there any word from any of the police officers that where involved? It wouldn't be the first time a Cop came forward.

You're right. This is definitely something that we should not just forget about until we get a SOLID explanation as to what in the bejesus happened that night. They should be able to tie everything together:

The booms/explosions heard
The transportation of an unknown object and what it is
The radio show phone calls

For me, unless all those questions are reasonable answered, I won't be happy.

Yeah, there's no way I'm letting this go until I know the truth about what was on that flat bed. !!!!!! All MUFON needs is one person, at least, to verify it was broadcast. I sent them an email today letting know they need to find that DJ that received the call and the photos. She posted them on twitter and told the audience to follow along. Then "nothing"

Feels like people are being forced to STFU. I heard that a local news station (channel 5 i beleive) wanted to report on it but couldn't get access to the story. Hmmmmm.

Sickofitall2012 posted a pretty nice point in one of the related threads and now that I see your images I ask the same question.

Where the hell are the wide load signs on the back of that truck?

GJ on the images btw they look a bit better. You aren't Jesus so miracles aren't your thing. I understand.

District 9 come to my mind www.d-9.com...


If it's not that I think we have something solid here, I just wonder how they will explain all of that officially.

I had lot of doubt at the beginning of this story( the report and pictures of the saucer shaped object on the truck) but with all the stuff that had been added to it, My mind do have changed!!!!!

And if the incidents are not related?
We do not have any real indication of that, so I think we should consider them as individual cases and, only after confirmation that neither has a good explanation, try to link them together.


Second, the call to the radio station heard by some first hand and then the DJ mentioning it again within an hour or so, THEN completely denied as EVER even happening, speaks volumes.
I asked this before and did not understood what was said, did anyone really heard that call on air? Or only the radio show host talking about it?

Is the place of the booms/explosions known? Did anyone go there?


Fourth, the utter silence on the matter is deafening.
If it was a fake event it's natural that nobody knows about it, I think that should also be considered.


Fifth, if this is a tactic for some viral marketing, once again, why the media silence and why did the radio station lie?
Fear of being prosecuted by a big company?


it's either:

A UFO
A movie prop
A viral marketing scheme
A military jet
Or anything else, I think we should not limit the possibilities until we know more

Okay, upon further "investigation" it seems the UFO incident happened about an hour before the booms were heard. But no one has come forward to expalain EITHER incident and if they are isolated incidents then why the silence on BOTH?

Story about the UFO w/ date and time


On August 7, 2009 at between 9:00 to 9:30 p.m., traffic on I-20 in Dallas was blocked while a convoy of dark Tahoes, military vehicles and local police escorted a flatbed truck carrying, what a caller to a local radio station said was a UFO.


Time sounds heard by witnesses posted on this thread



"My son and i started hearing the booms around 10:30 and at around 12:45 we were standing outside and we could still hear them, and see white flashes in the sky, it was not a storm, and it was not fireworks."



I asked this before and did not understood what was said, did anyone really heard that call on air? Or only the radio show host talking about it?


I do know that the DJ at the radio station said "guy was driving called the station (979) and sent us these pics" then the posted links to the pics. The pics were posted on twitter by the radio station. If they never received a call, as they told MUFON, then why not explain why the posted the pics? If they are hoaxing, I sure would like to know why.

Is the place of the booms/explosions known? Did anyone go there?


You're right. My opinion was based on the idea that the two incidents were connected. But, in my defense, you yourself had a debate with a member about this very thing as if the two incidents were connected.


If it was a fake event it's natural that nobody knows about it, I think that should also be considered.


SOMEBODY knew about it because SOMEONE was escorting that "cargo". Where's the truck driver who was hauling it. Who were driving the escourt vehicles, why was the section of freeway cordoned off. A lot of people knew what was going on. Even if it isn't a UFO, why would the police be involved.



Fifth, if this is a tactic for some viral marketing, once again, why the media silence and why did the radio station lie?

Same as above, it seems somebody knew if there are escort vehicles traveling on cordoned off freeway. You can't just DO that.



it's either:

A UFO
A movie prop
A viral marketing scheme
A military jet
Or anything else, I think we should not limit the possibilities until we know more


Well those were the only possiblities my mind could come up with. I really can't think of anymore. If you can, you should tell us what they are so we can discuss alternative possibilities.

Look, I don't have my mind made up. This could very well be a giant hoax but this happened days ago and NO ONE has come forward to answer ONE SINGLE QUESTION as to what the hell was going on with the booms/explosions OR the UFO.

IMO, something smells funny when no one wants to talk about it.

I should have been clearer about that, what I meant is that the best way to fool people is like "Sorcha Faal" does, you take two or three unrelated events and join them together with an interesting story. If someone tries to investigate they will see that the parts are real and think that the story as reported really did happen.

In this case it could that the real event was the transportation of something (that's obvious, unless the photos are from a different event), but the UFO story could be a creation by someone (even the radio station) to make for a more interesting day.

Why would some random radio station in Texas hoax a UFO transportation on a cordoned off interstate? What would their motive be? Just to make a more interesting day? Wouldn't such a hoax have repercussions with the FCC? I don't see it ArMap, but we can agree to disagree.

I would like to know what you do think it is. What is this object?

I've seen fighter jets up close and personal. (I've toured Boeing in St. Louis MO with a friend visiting a family member who worked there but that was a decent length of time ago.) I know it isn't a jet and it looked like a disc that we at ATS would associate from something not of this world. I would love to hear a different point of view as to what it could be?

Its a fair question! Any South Park character could tell you that..

DaMod, you obviously haven't seen the photos of him walking on water.

Judging by some of his posts, he certainly know how to turn water into wine. (Or is it the other way around?)
I kid. Armap is most worthy of his deity status here.

ON TOPIC:

Not sure if related, but a somewhat similar incident was discussed in March also in Texas. (Sorry if already linked) Similar circumstances.

(Scroll down for video by OP)


(There was also a much older thread with a tarp on flatbed that I'm still searching for.)

I found this video on the web supposedly about the transport. Doesn't look like quite the same vehicle to me, and there are two, not just one.

video

This is a link to ufocasebook.com that discusses the case.

This link makes a good point about Dallas police being the escort. You would think it would be much higher up unless this was all that was available on short notice.

As I've said before, this would appear to be WRONG, the time was much later than this.

Hell, the pictures themselves indicate they were taken at 2:40AM, which fits in exactly with the timeline as I remember it being reported.

Has anybody familar with the area tried asking some of the local PD? I think a majority of cops would be more then willing to tell friends what they just seen on the interstate or does anybody in this area on this thread have friends with scanners that would have heard radio traffic between the officers?

How in the hell would a prob end up in the middle of I-20? And if it was for a movie, radio stations and what not would not be forced tonot talk about it. news comes from 'on the set of' all the time

[edit on 14-8-2009 by Tank2/8]

I think it would be perfectly logical to use the local PD to clear traffic

Saw this on Twitter

Got a tweet from someone who "builds jet fighters"... it said "That was a non-flying test aircraft from Lockheed Martin being sent to England."


Tweet from same guy:

It was basically a full scale F35 model built to test for stress and such.


Lockheed is in west Fort Worth and I 20 would be the logical route. But why would anyone want a non flying F35?

As to the video I posted above. It does not look like it was the one in question, look more like a movie prop. It does show it is not that uncommon. I am beginning to lean toward it being something of ours given the proximity of Lockheed and the Joint Naval Air Reserve in west Fort Worth. However, it does not look like the pics I have seen of an F35.
