Quote from: Uncle Duke on August 19, 2015, 01:56:54 PMGeorge had a MUFON investigator on C2C a few weeks back talking about this story. Having interviewed nuke submariners for articles in the past, they are the tightest career field within the the military, with the possible exception of some of the Spec Ops guys. If this sighting occurred, I think it's a fair assumption it is known within that tight-knit community. The youngest crewmen in the sub service (and aboard Trepang) in 1971 are in their late 60s now, so it will be interesting to see how many of them, if any, come forward to confirm this story in the near future before they pass.
Quote from: albrecht on August 19, 2015, 04:54:19 PMI'm not going to spend much time on it but a quick searches through various search engines only pulled up the UFO-stuff when I searched for the Admiral's name etc. I would think it would be fairly easy to confirm, at least, that the guy was a real person and admiral and even stuff about the boat and operations since it has been decades. But, I think, internet searches have gotten worse, and it just pulls up UFO stuff.
Quote from: Uncle Duke on August 19, 2015, 06:42:26 PMThe MUFON rep that was on with George claimed someone within the organization had tracked down the admiral and confirmed the bulk of the story....boat was real, mission was real, admiral was real etc. As I recall the admiral said all he remembered seeing was ice, he denied seeing the objects depicted in the photos.
Quote from: b_dubb on September 08, 2015, 09:56:09 PMHow does someone get access to Admiral? About anything? I'd think someone like that would be all but unreachable except for official business, family and friends. My buddy was a captain in the Army. I heard all kinds of stories about his CO but never met him. I shared a house with my buddy at the time. BTW - his CO was a Colonel.
Quote from: albrecht on September 08, 2015, 01:10:52 PM"LAS VEGAS â€" The U.S. Air Force is giving an ultimatum to owners of a remote Nevada property that over time has been surrounded by a vast bombing range including the super-secret Area 51.They're being told to take a $5.2 million "last best offer" for their property by Thursday -- or the government will seize it through condemnation."http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/09/07/air-force-wants-owners-to-give-up-property-near-secret-area-51/?intcmp=hpbt3

Quote from: albrecht on October 20, 2015, 03:10:34 PMhttp://www.lasvegasnow.com/news/government-takes-familys-land-near-area-51Update. Land has been given to the air force but compensation for the land, compensation for health effects of nuclear testing, removal of equipment, houses, and graves are to still be negotiated. They were fighting an uphill battle to be sure but they've owned the mine and land before there was an "Air Force" and only a few years before Nevada was a State. But it just takes one judge and zip...there goes your property. Since they refused the 5.2 million offer the government now says only $1.5 million.
Quote from: albrecht on November 03, 2015, 04:33:07 PMIf he is still around Art should revisit the Gulf Breeze 6 and Vance Davis's various stories. Some wild, bizarre stuff.http://philipcoppens.com/gulfbreeze6.html
Quote from: Uncle Duke on November 03, 2015, 11:06:11 PMIn the late 90s, I spent a week at Pensacola Naval Air Station. One of our Navy hosts recommended a place to eat one evening, turns out it was in Gulf Breeze. I hadn't realized Gulf Breeze was no more than five miles or so (as the sea gull flies) across the bay from the NAS. One cool, breezy winter evening I talked another of our group in to driving back over to Gulf Breeze where we proceeded to damn near freeze our asses of standing on the beach for a couple hours looking for UFOs. Say nothing, other than aircraft coming/going from the NAS at a fairly steady rate. So that begged the question, did any naval aviators or USN radar types at the air station ever report anything unusual during the Gulf Breeze flap?
Quote from: Uncle Duke on December 01, 2015, 06:46:28 PMDon't know if Art has mentioned this, but an interesting UFO from the UK involving Area 51. Maybe one of our "Limey Trolls" can fill us in on the "Express", can't remember if it's a legit news source or a dodgy tabloid.http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/621566/Airplane-passenger-snaps-UFO-on-ground-near-mysterious-Area-51-military-base

Quote from: zeebo on April 16, 2016, 11:20:25 PMI saw something weird today, sort of aimlessly floating very high up. First I thought it was a drone, but the movement was too random. Got out my binoc's and saw something that looked like a big puffy green cactus. I think maybe it was one of those things with the wavy arms they put in front of auto dealerships? Pretty wierd-lookin up there in any case.
