Howard Hughes and the 1964 Zamora UFO Sighting


As many of you know, we have presented the hypothesis that Howard Hughes' Aircraft Company (Hughes Toolco), in providing satellite technology for U.S. Military agencies, under the direction of the C.I.A.'s front organization, Raven Industries, tested a space vehicle in New Mexico, near Socorro, that Police Officer Lonnie Zamora espied and created the noted 1964 Socorro UFO sighting.

(Our many ruminations about this can be found here, at this blog, and others.)

Here's what Wikipedia has to say about Howard Hughes:

In 1948 Hughes created a new division of the company, the Aerospace Group. Two Hughes engineers, Simon Ramo and Dean Wooldridge, had new ideas on the packaging of electronics to make complete fire control systems. Their MA-1 system combined signals from the aircraft's radar with an analog computer to automatically guide the interceptor aircraft into the proper position for firing missiles. At the same time other teams were working with the newly formed US Air Force on air-to-air missiles, delivering the AIM-4 Falcon, then known as the F-98. The MA-1/Falcon package, with several upgrades, was the primary interceptor weapon system in the US for many years, lasting into the 1980s. Ramo and Wooldridge, having failed to reach an agreement with Howard Hughes regarding management problems, resigned in September 1953. They founded the Ramo-Wooldridge Corporation, later to join Thompson Products to form the Thompson-Ramo-Wooldridge Corporation based in Canoga Park with Hughes leasing space for nuclear research programs (present day West Hills (Canoga Park).[6] The company became TRW in 1965, another aerospace company and a major competitor to Hughes Aircraft.

A 1962 filed Patent (awarded in 1966) for Hughes and The Aerospace Corporation began the work toward Stealth technology.

The whole of the Stealth development, patents and government documents, is available in a 2006 PDF, which we can provide to interested parties.
