Thanks for fixing that, giving instructions like that is a good way to handle it because yes, ATS has a problem with wayback machine links. One alternative I think works is to put the waybackmachine link into a tinyurl, then the tinyurl link might work, but I think your solution is a good one.

I tried to in the first post gambon. I actually used the "wayback machine" to verify what I had on file/ But ATS has failed to render it properly.
I will try again by giving full instructions in the first post again

It reads as a romance or some sci fi book, how can one remember gestures, details of staring at each other, saying what and what not.. are you sure this story is real?

I've read through these posts and am appalled that many believe the La Plume sighting right off the bat without a hint of incredulity! The guy appears in 2010, 2011 on radio with a story and bam! What about the intervening 30 yrs? Why now? Where is everybody's # detectors?! You can't all be that easy, can you? That is why Ufology isn't taken seriously by most scientists. This continual gullibility whenever someone has a tall tale to tell..It's deplorable.
You didn't read the witness statements from Burroughs and Cabansag I take it?

The light house theory has been debunked by the UFO Hunters doco team. Many You Tube clips on this. Here is the first one www.youtube.com... and you will have to search for the rest.
One person who should know, John Burroughs who was there with him, says he didn't:

Penniston's notebook which due to it's "filofax" design means pages could easily be added, moved and removed is at best a contentious piece of evidence (It would be interesting to confirm if this was standard USAF issue in 1980).
Did Penniston really draw these at the time of the sighting?
Even in Penniston's own witness statement he says he never got closer to it than 50 meters, so it's obvious that there are more problems with his story than just the notebook, like his 45 minute walk around the object that Burroughs said never happened, which even Penniston's statement says never happened. Penniston's credibility of anything he said after his original witness statement: extremely low.
In more recent television interviews Penniston has exhibited a notebook in which he claims he made real-time notes and sketches of a landed craft for about 45 minutes (see picture below). However, there are serious problems with this claim. For one thing, the date in the notebook is December 27 and the starting time is noted as 12:20 (presumably meaning 00:20). This, as we know, does not accord with the established date and time. Burroughs, who was within a few yards of him throughout the incident and saw no craft, told me in an email on 2006 March 22: “Penniston was not keeping a notebook as it went down”. In a further email dated 2008 January 17 Burroughs emphasized: “Penniston did not have time to make any sketches in a note book while this was going on and did not walk around it for 45 min.”
