Lowneck, many thanks for posting that link my friend, haven't had time to go through all of the article yet but Captain Brad Runyon's witness sketch of the object is certainly a very interesting one!
Will post back when time allows but I think it's got to be said that the USAF explanation for this incident (twinkling stars) has got to be one of the most contrived and intellectualy dishonest ones yet.
All the best mate.
Tuliens' site is excellent, looking at the original documentation that makes up this case is totally different than reading one of the abridged versions floating around on the internet. Project Bluebook never interviewed the crew of the B-52 for example. None of them, except Partin who was not part of the crew, filled out sightings questionaires. Partin described the UFO as an orange ball of light. The drawing you posted by the co-pilot Runyon was made recently. Did Runyon actually witness what he described some 30 years after the fact? Well it can't be backed up with the help of the original documentation available.
The most fascinating part of the case, Runyons' observation of the "craft", is the also the weakest part of the case.
