The Navy's Roswell Accident -- Part Two


Augmenting our post about the Navy and a dirigible crash at Roswell, we provide this (which might clarify the distorted and incorrect information that a blogger posted to discredit our effort):

"The airships employed by the Navy after WW II included the operating types used in the war, as well as some modified and several new types/classes. The G and L-types were used briefly in the postwar period. By 1947 all of the L-types had either been sold, stricken or placed in storage. Some of the G-types were still in service with the Naval Airship Training and Experimentation Command in 1947.

During WW II the designations that applied to these four airship classes were ZNP-K for the K-types, ZNN-G and ZNN-L for G and L-types and ZNP-M for the M type.

In 1947, the Navy’s General Board modified the airship designation system by dropping the “N” which stood for non-rigid. This was done because the board had scrapped the rigid airship program. A f t e r t h e “ N ” was dropped, the designations became ZPK, ZTG, ZTL (T was used for training vice N) and ZPM."

The United States Navy didn’t just fly blimps and dirigibles willy-nilly as a discontented blogger makes out.

The Navy experimented with – seriously experimented with – balloons of all sorts, from the pre-1947 period until 1961, with even a few attempts to employ ballooning for its missions after that.

We present the crash episode, in as much detail as we have so far, elsewhere.

As to why we don’t open those files to the UFO rabble, the superficial accounts by others – using public records rather than private, archived records (not available in a cursory search of the internet) – causes us to share our findings only with those who don’t have self-serving agendas they need to bolster.
