Hello List, All -

I would have thought that the first thing done, when offering a
solution to the Arnold case, especially one that could be easily
checked, it would be checked. According to Boeing, or for that
matter probably any aviation history site, the first flight of a
B-47 was December 17, 1947... about six months too late to solve
the Arnold sighting...

Not that the B-47 looked very much like what Arnold described.
