one thing I'd like to know: have there been many (any?) sightings of black triangles by private pilots? I'm thinking of sightings by people who
a) helicopter pilots, ie for a hospital, traffic reports, or what have you...
b) recreational pilots (people flying ultralight crafts, maybe)...
c) small plane pilots (for small airlines, flying those bangety-bangety turboprops, etc.)..
from the nids report it's hard to tell exactly how high up these things are, but they definitely sound like they're at pretty low altitudes -- a
couple thousand feet, probably -- and unlikely to be seen by airline passengers flying at 35,000 ft; since they seem to be black and unlit on the
upper part they're even more likely to be hard to see from above. people in low-flying crafts, on the other hand, might have a pretty good chance of
spotting one of these, and maybe even of getting a good close-up view. So, does anyone know of any sightings from categories a)-c)?
If I had to guess about these things I'm going to say that they're unmanned blimps, probably run by the DOD. The pilots of these black triangles
seem really stupid -- just sitting around, moving slow, not really paying attention to their surroundings -- and there's apparently no record of any
of them ever deciding to go away in a hurry because they've been spotted.....all of which makes sense if you assume you've got an unmanned blimp
being piloted by a pretty dumb computer. If I were putting some secret unmanned blimps in the air I'd probably have them wired to flash really bright
lights if they sensed other planes coming too close -- the pilots would see these and avoid hitting the thing -- and leave my disinfo agents to
discredit whatever the pilot reported he or she saw...it'd be much harder to cover this stuff up if a plane randomly hit one and crashed the plane
and the blimp.
Why are they out there? No clue -- if my guess is right they could be anything from an unmanned surveillance network to an unmanned chemical
dispensary to an unmanned transportation network -- and I'd just be speculating at this point.
