The Air Force may have tried to publicly "dis" the Rhodes photos but privately Air Force Intel essentially endorsed them when it included both photos, with blowups, in the formerly Top Secret Air Intelligence Report 100-203-79 published in December, 1948. This document was released to public view at the National Archives in the spring of 1985 and soon after I visited the Archives and held in my hands what appeared to be the legendary Estimate of the Situation, a TS document in a stiff black paper folder. However, upon reading it became clear that this was not the EOS. Instead it was a "ghost" or more accurately a distant cousin. At any rate, I bring this up because of the Rhodes connection. Rhodes had said the AF had taken his negatives and not returned them. The doubters assumed that Rhodes was lying because he didn't want the original negatives to be available for skeptical analysis. However, in the black cover version of the document, apparently the master copy (from which other copies had been made... and later destroyed), there were four prints of the Rhodes photos, two full frame and two blowups. These were photographic prints pasted into the pages of the report. They looked to me to be so clear that IMHO they were made from the original negatives, so Rhodes wasn't lying. In the document they are presented as part of a long list of sightings of "flying saucers." One wonders where these negatives are now. Inquiring minds want to know. Listen to 'Strange Days...
