Nice effort. I've looked into this case more than any. It's one of the few where I believe something significant actually happened. However, the Hunters show had a lot of misleading and/or incorrect info. I also believe they looked at the wrong location. I'm not sure why. I think the son may have forgotten the exact location over the years, or mistaken it. There's lots of elements they tried to add into the story, which I don't believe. I don't believe the road surface was replaced... There seems to be no evidence for that. Not to mention, that would not remove any residual traces from the area anyway. I also don't believe they had any sort of injuries due to radiation. I think the injuries they received could possibly be viewed that way, but they were not directly from radiation. I do believe there is somewhat of a coverup in the military, but not for the reasons some believe.
The problem with the 'testing' theory, is that it just doesn't make sense. There was no facility anywhere near there that works on programs like that. Anything like that would never be anywhere near an area like that. The 160th had just barely been formed at that time, and all of their effort was being made towards the plan for a second hostage rescue attempt in Iran. Which is the whole reason why the unit was started in the first place. However... If you look into the story more, you will see that including that unit is not that far off the mark form what most likely DID happen in the incident.
If you read carefully through the transcript taken by the AF when the ladies were interviewed... lots of good info can be obtained. Specifically, they were adamant about the fact that they DID NOT think aliens had anything to do with it. They were convinced that it was military/gov related, and were actually annoyed when the AF people mentioned talking to UFO people about it. But all that said... There are definitely issues that can be found with their testimony on the incident. If you follow their actions and the reporting of what the helicopters supposedly did, there are many things that don't make sense. That can be attributed to their confusion, which would be normal. But it could also be attributed to the fact that they may have exaggerated or changed their story. Most notable is the fact that one of the women claimed they thought they were seeing god when they first saw the light. That gives an idea as to where their mindset was and that they could be confused about what they were seeing. Still, I do believe something of significance did happen.
I would have to go back and look at all the stuff I collected to recall what parts of their story had issues. I think something happened... I'm just not sure it happened exactly the way they claim. I believe the older gentleman who said he also saw the helicopters. But I think the third guy is a copycat. I don't believe his story.
My personal theory is that the location of the incident was at a slightly different location, and that they were injured by a much less exotic accident. I have an idea what that was, but it can;t be proven, and to prove it could actually be damaging. There would be a legitimate reason why they have kept it secret, but nothing extraordinary.

Betty, Vickie and Colby were not the only witnesses to the strange happenings at Huffman. An off duty Dayton policeman and his wife were driving home from Cleveland through the Huffman area the same night and also observed a large number of CH-47s. A man living in Crosby, directly under the flight path, reported seeing a large number of heavy military helicopters flying overhead. Oilfield laborer Jerry McDonald was in his back garden in Dayton when he saw a huge UFO flying directly over head. At first he thought it was the Goodyear airship, but quickly realized it was something else. "It was kind of diamond shaped and had two twin torches that were shooting brilliant blue flames out the back", he said. As it passed about 45 meters above him he saw that it had two bright lights on it and a red light in the center.

I would have to disagree with that. Look at photos of arc flash injuries or plasma burns. Virtually the same. Something like hair loss can be induced by many things, including a reaction to a high stress situation. People who have been in serious accidents or had surgery can often have hair loss, and it's for some reason a more pronounced issue with women. Knew a girl that lost half her hair after a car accident.
We've gone over it before, but once again... You just don't test stuff like that in some random residential area.
