As others have said I have been a long term looker but have tended to be more a reader than a poster. I am old as dirt and have had a lucky great life.

I played Rock and Roll in the early 60s ( got drunk a few times but no drugs) Flew in Vietnam and was a military flight instructor. After 8.5 years I left the military and flew as a Corporate pilot and finally Captain for a major airline; guess I have flown continuously for over 45 years. My favorite aircraft was the Swift (owned 3 of them) and the Boeing 727 but flew many others. Have been retired for several years. I live in Texas part of the year with my wife and have a small farm overseas close to Laos in Thailand where we stay the rest of the year...We don't like cold so it works for us.

Think I am glad to be here and hope I can contribute to a meaningful discussion.

P.S. I forgot to add I worked for a branch of NSA for 13 months; not that it really matters other than it did give me some insights on how some things work in that field of endeavor.

To my knowledge I have never sprayed any!!

What I know about them is strictly from reading threads here and at other sights. Some of the chemical analysis performed (again from reading) seem to be legit as far as chemical composition. Living around heavy traffic airport hubs under well traveled jet routes; there will be contrails on almost any given day. Even in WWll and high altitude prop driven bombers there were contrails.
Do I believe someone @ someplace, stuff is being sprayed into our atmosphere....I have to say from what I have read it certainly is a possibility. Was done in Vietnam for certain reasons so there might be something to it. I do feel that many of the pictures I have seen on the web are just dissipating contrails in heavy traffic areas.

However the chemical analysis I have read show Barium, Aluminum, and other chemicals which are being used and precipitate to the soil. Thanks for the question sorry could not be more definitive.

Welcome! Your experience will come in handy to help prove or debunk some of the things that come through here.
A question, if you please - Got any stories about sightings? Seen anything up there you can't explain? That'd be a great topic for your 1st thread.

I have never seen anything that did not become apparent and identified; so no UFOs here and I actually looked outside more than many....I do have a few friends who worked with me that swore they saw something but mostly just lights in the sky. I have seen some really weird stuff with weather but nothing super natural etc etc just weird.

I flew with some really interesting guys from many different and varied back grounds so I do have a few stories that I might get around to telling if there is interest or a question leads there.

I almost feel like a reject for I have not been abducted etc etc....but thanks for the question and greetings.
