Hello Ridhya, personally I do believe the officers related what they saw as best as they could and we'll likely never know what it all was.
The OP doesn't suggest 'aliens' and neither do other posters. Much of the thread was taken up by the worst explain-away seen on ATS - a quiet
helicopter and temporary hearing loss by the witnesses who'd simultaneously lost their ability to recall what a heli looked like.
Maybe it was a psyop, but isn't that still explaining one mystery by invoking another? How would they orchestrate it? What purpose? Why a one-off?
Before writing the OP, I'd spent a lot of effort looking to debunk or rule out individual elements of the narrative. The bite, for example, seemed
too contrived and I assumed it would have been added later by a reporter or dishonest researcher. However, it was confirmed by Tim Beckley, Gerry
Clark and Billy McCoy - men who where there at the time.
Several of my UFO threads from 2010/11 were specifically written to highlight that some of the reports were extraordinary and not prone to
conventional explanations. None of them invoked aliens as a solution and they encouraged speculation. In fact, most of the best cases call for a high
tolerance for ambiguity and can only take people so far before they jump the shark or suspend judgement. I coined the phrase 'Folk from Elsewhere'
as it's multi-layered and ambiguous - a placeholder for anyone choosing to await further information.
Recent years have seen a rise in the psyops solution, but it's no more a panacea than the other stock explanations from the 1940s to the 1990s.
Saying that, there are[
reports that lend themselves to Intel/military mischief. Nick Redfern is about to release a book that points a finger
in that direction and might even explain the Hills case. Big news indeed and liable to be highly controversial. If the Hills fall to MKULTRA misdeeds,
a review of Wilcox, Zamora and similar cases from the 60s will be inevitable. It makes me smile/grimace as we might have the answers for US reports of
the 60s and still have the mid-50s French wave to account for.
BTW - I hope you did well at Uni, I recall you telling me about it many moons ago
