The 1890s Airship Mystery -- explained?



9 Comments:

  • These airships do not fit the alleged descriptions of one with a cabin, multi-member staff, drives that resemble reciprocating engines, etc. The improbability of weight to lifting capability in light of the weight of fuel, water, etc, as well as it's presumable short range based on these factors..in addition to the materials available ( more weight) is another set of issues.

    The necessity to land often by a fueling station, instead of using an anchor to climb down it's rope ( as reported) is another.

    However, there is a pattern much like the resemblance of delta craft anomalies that mimic the general configuration of a B2, like the original sighting of Arnold.. unknown "craft" mimicking the Horton designs. The airship was a state of the art for a time, another mimic?

    Foo fighters mimicking intercontinental ( V2) rocketry?

    They all toy with probability, just raising the bar enough beyond belief, while following along the evolution of aircraft.

  • Oops..I forgot to mention the pre- airship era, when flying dragons were common... or so it seems.

  • So Bruce, someone or something was (and is) pricking humanity -- or U.S. residents -- with hints to spur aircraft design?

    Or a mini-god is playing with humanity -- or U.S. residents -- just to have some cosmic fun: a Yahweh clone?

    Or an extraterrstrail race has a weird sense of humor?

  • Of course I don't know, but it appears to be a pattern that runs a fine line between plausibility and improbability. Just plausible enough to draw attention and just improbable enough to strain common sense credibility.The airship flap was followed by the Zeppelin era, the Arnold sightings were followed by swept wing supersonic craft, and the delta wing craft....(?) A sort of living science fiction, not there or here, nor non existent or existent, perceived without a fixed materiality. I suspect some sort of macro quantum
    phenomenon that seemingly picks our pockets..beyond this suspicion, there is human imagination, hence science fiction..all of this is much more complex than we can imagine our best day. I keep collecting these stamps. They may be worth something. (famous last words)

  • BTW..I wrote a post on this ( not surprisingly) on phenomenon that can be perceived that defy our caricaturisation of energetic states and used the delta wing craft as a example along with Ella Fitzgerald and a quantum physicist..and then came across your synchronization..of mimicry and technology..all in the name of keeping ourselves from developing Alzheimer's, I suppose.

  • B:

    I remember your posting.

    It's a matter to be pursued further, even though you've broached the topic often, and thoroughly.

  • BTW: Did someone have the book "Solving the 1897 Airship Mystery" by Michael Busby (released 2008)?
    It is on my list of the books to read ASAP. Any opinion or already reading by you in order to gimme a "feed-back" about the quality or not of the thesis developped?

    (I have received today my Johnson&Thomas "Flying saucers over Los Angeles". "Cool" book to increase my english^^!).

    Cheers,
    Gilles.

  • Gilles, et al...

    I have an article about the airship mystery that is one of the best and written before the UFO crowd got their mucky hands on the topic.

    I scanned it for Frank Warren a few years back and if I can locate it in our archives, I'll post here.

  • Gilles, and others:

    The article referred to in my comment above is online here and can be accessed via a new posting above this one.
