As a firm believer in alien UFOs, I also believe that we have craft derived from those craft. The triangles would be the modern version, but
probably we've had several versions each better than the last.
I have two things to add to this discussion, but I don't intend to get caught up in a back-and-fort discussion of what I report or what others think.
By fate or destiny, I seem to have been caught up in key aspects of the whole UFO business as my many post and some threads on ATS indicate. What I
know about this case is trivial, but I'll throw it out here.
First, a family member of mine used to drive twice a week on the state road on which the event happened north of Houston. That state road is 1960..
He told me that asphalt road had a burnt spot as evidence where the craft landed. Since that road was on his bi-weekly route, he said that short
section was soon resurfaced with fresh asphalt.
At some point after that event, Walt Andrus, the then head of MUFON was in Austin to discuss with our group the topic of UFOs in general. After his
talk, I asked him about the Cash-Landrum case and what MUFON discovered about it. He said that they were told that the strange craft was from a
secret project underway in the gulf from an aircraft carrier. And that explained why there were so many helicopters involved: they were carrier
based. My understanding was that that point was one reason why the case was thrown out because the government proved that it could not have had that
many 'copters in the air that night despite what the victims claimed. (Frankly, I don't think that they could have accurately counted over twenty
'copters buzzing around in the short period of time of the event given the circumstances and emotions.)
I'll add that I can't say that I necessarily believed Andrus' explanation. MUFON has always dragged its feet when it came to really wanting
answers about UFOs. I battled with them when they refused to accept abduction case. Another time I did a lengthy report about an excellent sighting
of two triangle-type craft that an ex-paratrooper and his son witnessed in southern Oklahoma. I sent my lengthy report to Andrus--I was not a
member--and eventually had to query him about what had come of their investigation of the sighting. He sent me a scrawled post card
short answer that they had checked with the local airport tower for that night and were told that "maneuvers were taking place," and as a
consequence, they saw no need to follow up on my report??? I've found that MUFON has not been the org that it had set itself up to be. My personal
conclusion is that more or less it has taken the place of Project Blue Book.
