UFO panel a blast from the past

Not surprisingly, National Atomic Testing Museum executive director Allan Palmer has triggered a whinefest for having the gall to sponsor an upcoming lecture billed as "Military UFO Files: Secrets Revealed." Mainly it's coming from the How can you sully the Smithsonian brand with little green men? crowd. Palmer doesn't care. Although the Atomic Testing Museum is affiliated with the Smithsonian, it isn't a subsidiary. And when it comes to UFOs, like most reasonably intelligent people, the retired Navy commander would prefer an independent inquiry to a laughably outdated government fact sheet.

"Well it is a little risky, because we've got something of a reputation to uphold," says Palmer, whose remarkable Museum in Las Vegas routinely displays loaner material from the Smithsonian. "But I feel strongly that the (UFO) story has not been covered properly, and that not a lot of true science or analytical thought has gone into it."

True enough. Ergo, on Sept. 22 in Las Vegas, Palmer is convening five well-vetted panelists -- John Alexander, Charles Halt, Nick Pope, Bob Friend and Bill Coleman -- for the provocative "Secrets Revealed" discussion. Question: Considering how the collective experiences of these old hands have been bouncing around in the public domain forever, what can they offer that we don't already know?

Plenty, insists Palmer. For instance, Bill Coleman, the retired Air Force colonel and former Project Blue Book mouthpiece, insists he's got a "blockbuster" up his sleeve...

Coleman, who once chased a daylight disc in the summer of 1955, only to discover his report had unaccountably vanished from the Blue Book archives, co-produced the "Project UFO" series for NBC in 1978-79.

Most reasonably intelligent people don't involve themselves in such foolishness.

Travis Walton was talking to some of us Sept 3. The real story is much more classic than the movie.

Pinging the unidentified aerial phenomena list (ufo) ..

May 8, 1950-This is one of the most famous UFO pictures ever taken.
Photographed by Paul Trent, and first witnessed by his wife.
They were published in a local newspaper in McMinnville, Oregon.
Shortly thereafter, the Trent photos were published in Life magazine edition of June 26, 1950.
The rest is history.
(These photos have been deemed authentic for over 50 years. The analysis of the McMinnville photos by Dr.Bruce Maccabee PhD, can be found here = http://brumac.8k.com/trent1.html )

Those interested in the uap/ufo ping list, please Freepmail
LasVegasDave (freepmail works best)

( Approximately 200+ freepers are currently on the ping list ).

Hmph..”Blast From the Past” indeed. I would have expected to hear from George Leroy Tirebiter.
