Multiple witnesses in >various locations, including flight instructor Charles R. >Morris, sighted three elliptical objects flying in an in-line >formation. Duration of four minutes. This report was a Blue Book >"UNIDENTIFIED", and is also cited in "THE UFO EVIDENCE" (notably >on p. 40). >I brought this seemingly puzzling report to the attention of UFO >researcher Tim Printy, and we both took a close look at it, >which included going through the lengthy BB file on the matter. >Much to our surprise (and to some extent, our consternation as >well), we found that the apparent explanation for this report >was to actually be found in these files, hidden in plain sight >for all these years.

Further evidence - really, is any needed? - that nothing emerges anymore from Herb Taylor's keyboard without worshipful mention of Tim Printy. I fear that the rest of us will be driven into a coma before Herb is through. Jerry Clark Listen to 'Strange Days...
