Must be a relief to all and sundry to have this troubling report expunged from the long list of 'unknowns'. However, are we about to unleash a series of old B-52 sightings reattributed as 'unknowns'? If it is so easy to confuse the two, then poor Herb has opened a door that will see him confronted by a task that will dwarf the labours of Sisyphus...
