So after watching Felix BumGardner on TV yesterday Me and the lads were having a few beers, when we got round to the plausible theory that :-
Roswell UFO incident (1947) was actually America's first attempt to have a Skydive from over 100,000ft ??
Obviously this attempt went disastrously wrong and the Airforce moved in to cover it up !!
It seems that all previous record breaking Skydives have been done in the same area.
Just a Theory.... Peace.

Hardly something they'd want to cover up for the rest of eternity!
Yeah, a man dying after falling 100,000ft may have been a little embarrassing back in 1947, but it's hardly worth hiding it from the world!

S+F for the drunken genius comment.

The explaination was the US government was testing a new form of surveilance. Supposedly placing cameras in weather balloons.
Sounds really helpful for fighting communism and criminals back then. ISo I guess that explains the weather balloon ideas, huh?
