200 mph hot air balloon. yep, thats what it was.
or are you saying that the whole story is a lie?
The problem with eyewitness reports is they are notoriously unreliable , the object in the picture isn't doing 200mph nor does it appear to be hovering at 1500 ft , maybe he caught it as it was descending into the woods but what did it do after that , did it take off again or stay there ... he doesn't say .
Well, it appears Major Quintanilla knew who this guy was and didn't try character assassination. Based on that, the default seems to be giving the witness benefit of the doubt. LIFE personnel also apparently considered him a reliable source.
It hovered at about 1,500 feet above the lagoon-side restaurant where we sat , then sped away at 200 mph and abruptly changed direction , it didn't skid or bank but made a flat 90 deg turn setting down in the woods across the water

There aren’t enough details to identify the lake so we’re left with a name and a photograph.
