In reading the source of that story, we find that he was with a flight supposedly escorting a B-47 bomber across the southwest. His flight would have
been on orders to a base further west. Seeing a mysterious craft in the vicinity of the B-47, an atom-bomb capable craft (wonder if it was carrying
an A-bomb?) it would be unlikely that any members of the flight would have been allowed to deviated much from the flight plan. We can figure at that
time the F-86's guns were loaded and the mission was to protect the flight. If there was one known boggie, the automatic suspicion would have been
that maybe there were more. (Boys, close up the formation around the B-47!)
UFOs don't usually leave contrails, but wait, this one was failing, so that makes a good reason why he could follow the saucer, but how did his jet
catch up with a craft going four times the speed of his jet? But it did well enough for him to see it actually crash.
Permission for him to pursue would not have been instantaneous. Several rungs up the heirarchy would have to be consulted. fuel supplies would be
depleating all the while, etc. But yet he says he saw....
The crash happened in Texas but a bunch of Mexican soldiers had taken command of the US areas? Not likely in those days. Nobody had troops just
hanging around that area of the border, very desolate.
Yes, this is mostly conjecture too, but based on what we are told about the incident.
It makes for a good story...for some folks, ...and over all it helps the cause, I guess..
