I essentially re-registered to this site to post this thread, so hopefully I don't seem "suspicious" to any conspiracy buffs. I am not here to blow
your mind. The "caps" in my title may have even been overkill, although the increase has been rather dramatic, albeit slow to come. I am here to try
and gain knowledge of why
this is occuring though, and hopefully fellow members can shed light on some reasons. I have seen threads like this
before and they are typically unprovable, paranoia ridden, or warnings of incoming martial law that get too many flags for routine troop/vehicle
movement. This is not one of those threads, so please, bare with.
I have lived at my current location on the coast of central California for over 18 years. I would like to think I am familiar with how my area works,
its general noises/ activity, etc. I even have some ties into local military personal, mostly friends, and friends fathers, and take active interest
in the little knowledge I can get about what they are willing to tell me (no aliens, no space tech). If you are familiar with CA, you probably know
theres and airforce base or two out here (I should know more specifically) - the closest to me being Vandenberg Airforce Base 1-2 hours south of my
residence. Im fairly sure It's a pretty decent place, I think they shot a lunar mission out of there and.. have some cool guns or something. So
military activity, especially in the sky, wouldn't be particularly alarming to a level headed person. Over the years I've seen (actually it's almost
always hear first, then see) helicopters flying over head, and ocassionally a jet or 3 blasting by. I work from home, and sometimes I would hear them
out my home-office window and go outside to marvel for bit. I'de like to think I didn't miss many of them considering my work situation.
On average, I see maybe 10-20 occurences of military craft yearly. A lot more high flying jet contrails than anything else, also generally flying
north, up from Vandenberg. So If I missed 2/3 of them, we could naively say 60 or so occurences of military craft are openly visible/audible to my
town (or just myself) on any given year. OK.
The photo in the beggining of this post is part of all I can offer up as any sort of proof that Im atleast have sane, and not one to over exaggerate.
It is of maybe 2 months ago. I count about 7 different low altitude contrails, taken at night, slightly adjusted for your viewing pleasure.
Item numero dos. I doubt those are identifiable, you can see as much as I could. However black helicopters are no common place thing overhead, even in
the 10-20 annual over head military craft. What I simply have never seen my whole life here is 4 flying together though, all military.
Now I wish it was just these photos and me saying look 7 contrails in one night look 4 helicopters during the day. But it is SO much more. It has
become progressively worse for the last 6 months or so. The first pic was 2 months ago - I started to find it weird that I was seeing these contrails,
always at night. Then despite whether I saw a jet, I would go outside midday and see jet contrails.
Now, for at least 2 full months, every single night
I hear or see a mimum of 2 jets. 50% chance I hear atleast one helicopter as well. this
occurs no earlier than 11 pm and will go on till as late as 3-4 AM. I stay up way to late, and have been steadily for months. I have the windows open
and every night
for over a month I hear jets or helicopters flying overhead, usually north, from what I assume must be vandenberg airforce
base. I go outside and witness the numerous contrails, at night I have seen 2-3 black helicopters flying information. The record is two different sets
of multiple jets, and 3 seperate passings by helicopter(s) in one night. I have been ignoring it somewhat - but i rediscovered those pictures and then
realized this has been happening for months on end, and it is weird as hell. There has never been his much flight activity over the central coast that
I or many older folk can remember. And never, ever, ever, has it happened every single night. not skipping a beat, for over a month, only at the
earliest AM hours.
I have searched the internet for days, called vandenberg, asked people stationed there - no explanation.
I have spoken to an active test-jet engineer and one of the head rocket enginerees at Vandenberg (both fathers of people I know), and neither of them
know why, although one said he has noticed much increased flight activity (from his own home near mine though, not because he was at work).
Any idea why this is happening ATS? There is obviously a reason, and if you want to explain it away as various flight tests/training- Why the new
flight pattern/path, and what are they testing/training for anyway that requires this many flights, of blacked out helicopters and high speed jet
aircraft? Insight from those familiar with the military would be awesome! thanks!
