The essence of this story is that somebody is still trying to
float the hot air balloon theory as an explaination of Socorro
and perhaps other sightings.

A balloon guy (Yost) apparently recalls that some balloons were
launched North of Albuqurque in late 63 early 64. However he
doesn't recall anything landing at Socorro, south of

The thoughts apparently was that there was some CIA involvement
in the balloon flights, so James FOIAed CIA and they could
neither confirm nor deny any records of any balloon flights,
thus ended that request.

I suspect the balloon theory will be drifting around... for
awhile, but will never quite reach the destination.
