>Hi Bob,

No, I was not present during the deal, and do not know who the
lady is.  Mike Hesemann told me about it.  He said her husband
had come home one day with the film, put it in the closet, and
told her never to do anything with it as long as he was alive.
He told her that it proved what crashed was not a weather

I don't know.  I think this all happened in 1995, but may be
wrong.  I did not consider it all that important when it

Ask Mike about that.  I don't know what, if anything, he did.

I don't know who your film producer is from Bavaria, but it
sounds to me  like he has been to one Oktoberfest too many.

This is pure nonsense, and you can quote me on it.

There is nothing in this film footage inconsistent with the
original having been shot on a 16 mm camera, and many
indications that it was.

Again, don't ask me, ask Mike.

Yes, Ray Santilli, Gary Shoefield, Maria O'Neill, etc.

But no one outside of Santilli's circle.
