UFOs:In the Navy....
Copyright 2013, InterAmerica, Inc.
UFO buffs an “researchers” have always and still continue to place the United States Air Force into the UFO mix, as an integral part of the phenomenon’s mystery, which UFOers see as exacerbated by cover-up(s) and machinations of various kinds to flummox seekers of a UFO explanation.
But I have maintained for a very long time now that it’s the United States Navy which is the keeper of the UFO keys.
The Navy’s Skyhook Projects caused many UFO sightings, especially the Mantell episode, but what was and is Skyhook exactly? Balloons gathering data with their tethered instrument capsules and boxes?
Or was Skyhook and its related code-named operations more than that?
B. D. Gildenberg, in an article for the Skeptical Enquirer, The Cold War’s Classified Skyhook Program: A Participant’s Revelations, Volume 28.3, May / June 2004 presented an overview of the Navy’s balloon projects (and those also of the Air Force, including those that were part of the Roswell incident).
I have outlined the Moby Dick Project, here and at the RRRGroup blog, early on.
Gildenberg’s article notes the Moby Dick Project and all the other attendant Projects in play during the late 40s, into the 50s, and right up to today:
Gopher, Grayback, Moby Dick Hi, Gentrix, Grandson, and Flying Cloud WS-124A, all Top Secret.
He cites “an excellent book by historian Curtis Peebles (Peebles 1991)” on the matter of balloons and Soviet penetration by them.
But the clue to what the Navy (and concomitantly the U.S. Air Force) were really doing with the Skyhook balloons remains to be investigated by UFO researchers.
A thorough research of balloon flights, near Roswell in 1947, as I have already placed online here and elsewhere, help to define the confusion within the Roswell incident; that is the Mac Brazel Foster Ranch debris collection, which has nothing to do with what happened at Roswell but is a diversion, caused by inept UFO researches and the Air Force to keep citizens from what really happened east of the Foster Ranch and north of Roswell in 1947.
That aside, the secret balloon projects may explain Socorro – may – as Skyhook explains the Mantell episode, which has been amply clarified by Kevin Randle.
So my UFO gumshoe friends, here are some names of balloon projects that allow you to male connections to noted UFO sightings.
But more importantly, the search for Navy documents and activities might tell you what UFOs really are, and that the Navy has a major clue.
Their balloons have told them.
