Again, please share your theory with us as to what you think it was. As you've seen, you've already been called a nutcase from some members, lol,
and you seem to have a thick enough skin to endure it. So what do you have to lose? Maybe your insight into this object would help open a door to a
different direction in this case, instead of letting this thread spiral into another offtopic argument, rife with quotes and he said/she said banter.
It's not about my skin. I put up with HC insanity for three years, I can put up with this. It's about wasting time. If this was a topic I didn't
understand, I'd keep my mouth shut. But its a giant waste of time to put forward a bunch of effort and know through your life experience how
something works... then you throw it out there and you get nothing but people that just keep saying 'no no no no no', because they're so in
flexible that they refuse to believe anything other than 100% of the story as it was told, verbatim. I mean if I annoy people so much with just this,
I can't imagine what a few people here would do if Don showed up. They would just have a total meltdown. lol
I'm not going over the test stuff anymore. I've explained over and over how that works and why it's not that. If people can't get past that, then
whatever. Like I said... I can't say exactly what I think it was, because if I am right, it would still be a secret. I'm patriotic. Yes, chances are
it wouldn't be a big deal, but if for some reason it did bring the truth out before it should be brought out, I don't want to be responsible for
that. Unlike most people here, I feel obligated to my country, and I don't believe the government and military is just evil shadow people constantly
trying to kill us. I know first hand that most of them work very hard to keep us safe, and I do not believe in the concept that every single citizen
deserves to know everything they do. That's not feasible, nor practical.
I will go as far as to say that I believe it was training for a very important mission, and the flight package of helicopters on their training route,
had an incident at the specific location that I already posted in the beginning. That incident may have involved a slung fuel bladder being carried
for a FARP, or possibly just a helicopter by itself.
A mission package would typically be divided between helicopter types in sections, and this particular group would have the specific different types
they describe seeing. Each type is responsible for a different part of the mission. One of the ships from a section in the front, which would
potentially have the fuel bladder (but not guaranteed), had the incident at that location. The accident would have involved what they crashed into,
and that object would have been the actual cause of how the people sustained their injuries, when they came upon the scene of the accident just after
it happened. The injuries would have been from arc flash, or plasma burns... which would look very similar to many of the injuries they had. A
following section in the strike package could have shown up later, at about the time the women were at the scene, and discovered the accident that
happened with the ship in the lead section. These would have been the helicopters they saw before they left.
Flying in a package such as this at night, would have been very rare in those days. This was the very beginning of routine night flying, and NVGs were
just showing up in Army aviation. All this together would narrow down who was doing it. But through many people's description of what was going on in
those units at the time, there are many things that point to a group specifically working out of TX around that time and training for this mission,
and they also spent time doing 1000 mile insertion missions in Nevada at night, around the same time.
Due to the nature of the mission, I believe it would have been fairly easy to cover it up, thanks to the very rural area where it happened. Why the
women would not have been informed as to what happened, I do not know. This would have been very compartmentalized, and most people in the military
may very well have not even known of the mission or what was happening. The unit itself that was involved, could simply have not even known anybody
had been there when the accident happened.
If you look at the location, it's not hard to figure out. But sorry, I know some people will be greatly annoyed that my ideas aren't nearly as
thrilling as a super secret nuclear test craft... and all this will be shot down with the usual 'no no no no'... and I will no doubt once again be
bombarded with name calling and irrational comments claiming I'm saying the women are liars, and all this other crap that I never said.
