Part one of Heiser's post included summaries and opinions of Mr. Marler's work, as well as thoughts on a foreword for the book provided by Colonel John Alexander. While Dr. Heiser commended Mr. Marler for his research and suggested the book to those interested in UFOs, Heiser also expressed concerns about glaring omissions of relevant data and as particularly committed by Colonel Alexander. The colonel continues to suggest he is willing and able to inform us which reported craft are ours - implying some are supposedly not - and in spite of at least pretending to be virtually oblivious to the history of man-made triangle craft and the interest held in them by two of his former employers, the Department of Defense and Robert Bigelow's National Institute of Discovery Science.
Heiser pointed out many relevant circumstances commonly omitted from discussion of the reported triangles, including declassified aircraft and dirigibles dated both old and new. The controversial activities and interests of the colonel as described in posts here at The UFO Trail were also referenced and linked.
Part two further questioned how Colonel Alexander could purportedly not be aware of quite human-created triangle craft that a couple hours of Internet research easily identifies to exist. Dr. Heiser presented many documents and related photos from such sources as the US Patent Office concerning triangle craft and what might likely be reported as unidentified flying objects. The point was effectively made by Heiser that omission of such data is indeed a disservice to the UFO community, while emphasizing that such information does not necessarily provide explanations for all reports.
Just a few of the craft and circumstances presented by Dr. Heiser included:
|Popular Mechanics reported on the stealth blimp in 1999|
|A V-shaped high altitude airship. Note the large size |
of the craft as demonstrated in the photos above and below.
|Modern Mechanix reported on |
fascinating dirigibles, circa 1934.
|The DoD's stealth worm airship can conduct surveillance |
at tens of thousands of feet for days at a time
Aerial Phenomenon Investigations
Meanwhile, the Aerial Phenomenon Investigations Team, known as API, launched a new website. Dedicated to conducting investigations, research and analysis of UFOs and other aerial phenomena, the group and its director, Antonio Paris, vow to bring more science to the often misdirected and wayward field of ufology.
The new website includes a page on man-made flying objects. Below are some of the many interesting photos presented. Visitors to the site are encouraged to register, allowing them to comment, submit posts and more.
