I am afraid it is not that simple, James.

I have watched quite carefully the videos and read a few reports
and witness=B4s accounts of the "flotillas", and I am inclined to
believe that _some_ of them definitely have no easy explanation.
If any. The simply defy logic in all terms.

Sure, I certainly agree with the fact that there are involuntary
misunderstandings of some images, that ended up included as
genuine flotillas, and -- just as with the crop circles -- some
voluntary hoaxs, perpetrated by people taking advantage of the
situation. It is a natural thing.

However, to simply rule all the flotillas as either hoaxes or
genuine UFO fleets is a big mistake. Each case has to be
analyzed separatelly, to start with. Then, take the ones which
defy explanation and analyze them as group, observing and
registering their common behavior, shapes, sizes, flight
patterns etc.


Best regards,
