The Above Top Secret forum made such a claim 2 years ago: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread506175/pg9 However, the poster himself admitted it could be nothing more than his matching "thread" being a random small scratch on the photo, which may not even be on the original negative but from a print. Sounds similar to Robert Scheaffer's claim of seeing a "knot" on the wire where Trent allegedly tied up his model (little more than a small, grayish smudge on Trent Photo 1 left of a wire kink). But if you look at the second photo, the "knot" isn't there. Scheaffer's knot was obviously nothing but a piece of random dirt on the negative, similar to many such small spots seen all over the two photos, including some between, above, and below the wires. Trent obviously tied up his model in mid-air as well. A similar "knot" or small darkish speck can also be seen on a power line some 150 feet away, no doubt yet another spot where Trent tied up his model. Previous researchers such as Bruce Maccabee have been unable to find any evidence of a thread or wire working from the original negatives. The jpeg images on the Net, such as at Bruce's site, are often used because they are readily available, but they are degraded images that could have all sorts of artifacts. Unless the new research is based on new scans off the negatives, I would be very dubious of whatever new claims are being made about detection of what would be a very subtle and faint thread trace that has previously gone undetected.
