Neil, since our private exchanges on this I have looked at this
material a number of times, and have been in contact with others
who are working with some large prints from the U of T.  What I
see is one strut with some squiggles on it, which look like
where glue was applied to stick on the foil/paper.  One strut
which someone claimed had "heiroglyphics" on it turns out to
only have reflections from the bulb flash.

I've looked and looked and I just do not see any heiroglyphics
anywhere, nor do I see anything else strange.  I see a bunch of
junk from a weather balloon and radar target.

I think that Bond Johnson wants so badly to be THE Roswell
photographer that he has put things into people's minds which
simply are not there in the photographs.

If there were symbols looking like those in the AA film, what
would that prove?  Ray Santilli's former associate Gary
Shoefield has told us that the film is a hoax.  I still have
questions on where, how and by whom it was hoaxed, but I am
willing to take Gary's word on this that it is a fake.


Bob
