Again -- A Socorro Explanation?
Copyright 2013, InterAmerica, Inc.
A while back I was asked for some supplemental information for our suggestion that Lonnie Zamora's 1964 Socorro sighting was a prosaic (Howard Hughes) test procedure, gone astray.
Hughes was testing moon landers and satellite launchers, under the rubric of the CIA's cover industry. Raven Industries in the 1964 Socorro time-frame.. (There are a number of pieces by me/us about this online here and at our RRRGroup blog.)
There are two patent requests that I couldn't find when asked about this a few months back, but here they are now (from P.E. Yost, for Hughes Toolco/Aircaft):
Our conjecture is merely that, a conjecture, that, for us, is plausible, if one considers that certain aspects of the 1964 mishap (in Socorro), mistaken by Officer Zamora were somewhat different than what is represented here; that is, the Hughes/Raven configuration that ended up on the Socorro desert floor was modified from what the patent drawings here show -- but the essential configuration remains intact.
This is a consideration, not a proof, of course..
