Thanks John for bringing this story to our attention.

It could very well be that the objects Arnold saw flying in the
vicinity of Mt. Rainer, located close to the Boeing aircraft
manufacturing plant in Seattle, Washington, were a formation of
shiny B47s with the highly swept back wings. From a distance
these B47s would have looked like the cresecent shaped objects
Arnold later recalled and drew than the typical cross shaped
aircraft that were more common at the time.

UFO sightings are rare and credible photographs of UFOs are even
much rarer. I think we all agree that aircraft are much more
commonly seen in our skies than things that cannot be readily
identified, including UFOs. With so many experimental and secret
aircraft test flown from at least the 1940s, some of which were
later produced in large quantities and some other very unusual
and still secret aircraft that are flying today, the question I
have is "Where are all the missing pictures of these secret
aircraft or man-made UFOs?". Should they not be much more common
than pictures of the rarer pictures of true UFOs?

Maybe like in the Arnold UFO sighting, such pictures or drawings
of UFOs are in fact pictures and drawings of man-made UFOs or
still secret aircraft. If this is true, then the Blacksheep
story may not only have solved the famous Arnold UFO sighting of
1947 but may have also given us the answer to all those strange
and unusual objects we continue to see in our skies whose
appearance changes from decade to decade much like Earth based
technology and design does.

Would it be possible for us to see a copy of this old book that
Blacksheep dug up?
