Don, could you clarify your last comments for me please?

I live under a flight path for Stewart, about 5 miles southeast
of West Shokan, one of the towns featured in the story. If you
open up your Google Maps to New York State and get a section
framed by Interstate 88 and Interstate 87 (NY Thruway), with the
Ashokan Reservoir in the lower right corner, you'll see the
small towns/hamlets like West Shokan, Chichester and Stamford
are dotted throughout the vast, mountainous state forest lands
of the Catskill Mountains. Populated, it ain't (let alone highly
populated), and our regular traffic heading to Stewart is
limited to a handful of flights.

Are you invalidating the experiences of the people quoted, and
saying they didn't see or hear what they saw and heard? While I
can't personally verify that they were C-130s, a police officer
seems to have corroborated Blake Killen's statement that that's
one of the aircraft.
