Well... It's a totally lame answer, but I don't think it would be right to say exactly. If I'm right, then it would in fact still be a secret.
Nothing that would stop the world from turning, but still a secret that could be damaging to our image. And besides, nobody here is going to agree
with me anyway.
Unfortunately I can't find my notes... But I believe this is the spot that the show claimed was the area. I took this from when they showed the sign
of a cross street, and also that gas station.
However, if you follow what they said in the transcript carefully, it seems to be an area farther north. They said they turned the corner and the
light came into view. That would most likely be the large turn on the road to the north, when it goes from east to south and then stays straight. It
would be possible that it happened in the wooded area just below the turn. as that is the most isolated area on that part of the road. But this is the
spot where I believe it happened...
Older images show that spot had only one or two homes nearby in that time frame. And I believe that the core of the story involves helicopters, and
only helicopters. So you can draw your own conclusions from that.
That's assuming that all this went down anywhere near the way they claim at all, which I think is probably about 50/50. As I said, there are many odd
things about their story that don't make sense.
But there is a fire station south of that point on that road, which I believe existed at that time. I have not been able to find anybody who worked
there then. But I would say, that would be your best bet for learning what, if anything, happened. If they don't know, then I think the whole story
would have to be questioned. That would have been the best place to try and investigate on the show, but of course they didn't do that.
OP, I think you confused some of the things I said... I never said nothing out of the ordinary happened. I think there's a good chance it did. I just
don't think it was a test of some sort of craft or whatever, and here's why...
When you test any sort of craft, or even an engine... you are strictly confined to where it can be done. Any prototype is loaded with sensors and
telemetry equipment. That basically makes that prototype priceless. If it is lost, then it's a huge blow to a program. So being in any old area where
civies are flying around and all kinds of other stuff, is the last thing you'd want. When a craft is tested, it has to be done on a specific range
that is setup for testing. Dozens, if not hundreds of people are involved. The data has to be systematically collected and disseminated in a very
repeatable fashion. To do this, you have to have all kinds of Engineers and support people available to deal with the intricacies of that particular
craft. The telemetry is collected over the range by monitoring stations in fixed positions and relayed to a mission center. So when all of this is
done, it's done in areas that specifically exist for these sorts of tests. Each sortie is very involved and pre-planed for days, and all the data is
collected in a very scientific fashion. There is no such facility like that in TX. Contrary to what some people think, you don't just hop in a secret
prototype craft and start flying around wherever you want... It just doesn't work like that.
The comment she made about looking for Jesus to come out of it... All I'm saying is that, it sort of shows that maybe they didn't make the worlds
