Thank you for this argumentation which sounds quite clear to me
and confirms what I thought.

This comes as a final blow to the Mogul 4 story.

Of course, the first, and major blow remains your demonstration
along with David Rudiak that Charles Moore had manipulated the
data, and that Mogul 4 could not have landed on the debris field
anyway. In fact he even calculated two different trajectories in
his book, showing that he was not sure himself.

Now we realise that, most probably, there was no Mogul 4
launching at all! Instead, Crary launched, in the morning, a
small cluster of ballons with a sonobuoy. This is not even what
Brazel may have found on June 14, just a couple of ballons and
radar targets, and no instruemt at all.
