^ Very cool.. Great find. Appreciate his sentiment, too.
Thought your good self and many others would appreciate this... it's an extraordinary and... sinking in... a seriously profound interview.

It came up as a YouTube suggestion, presumably as it was related to similar and previous searches.

Need some time to take it all in... I have that sense... this interview might become insightful.

That aside, hoping to shortly resurrect my copious UFO archive material.

Like any ufologists, you and I will disagree at times... what you have reminded is that I am... no matter if it seems to be perpetually trying to unscramble an omlette. :)

First time I have ever seen Arnold interviewed...
:pthumbsup:

Likewise! Realisation this is stupendous and immense - seemingly uploaded to YouTube without any fanfare.

Can't take it all in at present... so.... here we have an incredibly wonderful snapshot of Arnold's conclusions.

Does he believe he witnessed a Soviet threat, or something from, 'outer space'...

Does he believe in any, 'cover up' and if so, why?

Coffee is a brewin' - first in-depth viewing awaits and this is going to be fascinating..

News article (not Arnold himself therein) claims:

'He found on the wall of the Commander's office, this classified gunsight photo... from three years before'...

Which is in fact, a photo published on July 7, 1947, couple of weeks after Arnold's report of June 24th.

What is this though...

Profoundly significant and news to myself...

Worked with the folks on PJ-47, we kinda had a termination when FT published my article, offering a solution to Arnold's sighting.

Happy with that, they were not...

It couldn't be the explanation... surely...

So, is this now their conclusion, following an intensive research project over a lengthy period?

OK, hopefully this works after a couple of false starts caused by problems posting the images ...
To eliminate the obscuring image host site logo overlay and avoid long-term reliance on third party storage ... Images have been resized, tweaked for legibility, and re-inserted as attachments.

Not sure if I posted this before. The UFO noise can be best heard at around minute 1:48

I think a different version was posted earlier, but this is great. I am super busy working on Greek armour, so haven't had time to check in at forum. I will be back! I have a lot to read here..

Looking at Wiki, the Lightning seems to have been remarkably accident prone. In 1970, the year of this incident, there were 7 losses & 4 pilots killed.

It is odd if the canopy was still on when they found it.

This is fun!:

"
Jan Aldrich:
We did interview the communications chief at stallion site who was there in this time frame. He said that UFOs were routinely encountered on the White Sands Range so much so that they were ignored after several calls to interceptors to chase them away. He also said some tests were delayed or cancelled due to unknown objects or radar returns on the range....he didn't have any detail cases in mind just the general information that things that weren't suppose to be there were detected. Some felt it was Soviet spies, but no interceptions were succcessful."

Believe I once suggested the explanation, with so much supporting evidence as possible, was a certain type of mirage.

Just been restoring old archive material from backup CDs... Will naturally try to locate same straight away.

Worked on this case with fellow researcher and UFO related author, Martin Kottmeyer.

The premis was why a, 'superior mirage' might be elemental here.

Still searching through my archive material for this.

A couple of articles I just ran across, livestock tangentially involved, perhaps some form of mutilation.. In the second, a saucer is shot at and hit. Skeptics suggest "blimp". I suspect these objects like others, came out of the ocean:

More Saucers Seen
By Fenton Miller
Arthur Marlowe of Route 4, Loris, is the second Horry
County man to report a mysterious object hovering over
his farm. Within fourteen hours after he sighted the
object he found one of his cows dead from unknown cause
on the spot over which the object hovered.
In Loris and elsewhere in the county and adjoining
counties numerous people during the last week have re
ported sighting unfamiliar lighted obiects nassimr
me sKy.
Marlowe, who lives two miles
south of Highway 9 on the old
Whiteville- Conway road, states
that he was awakened at approxi
mately 30 minutes after midnight
on Saturday morning, February
14th, by the barhing of his dogs
and the braying oi his horse.
After throwing on his clothes,
he looked out of a window and
saw so much ligh' that he thought
his barn was on fire. When he" got
outside he discovered that the
light was coming from an object
about 70 feet 3bove the ground
r.nd about 100 *ards beyond his
barn.
He was able to make out three
cylindrical beams of light coming
from the object, one fiom what
appeared to him to be the front,
another from the side fachig him
and the third from the rear of the
object. The light was so bright,
he said, that he could have read
fine print where he was standing
approximately 100 yards from it.
Although he had his gun with
him and three times started to
shoot the object, he decided not to
in hopes that the object might
settle to the ground. If it did
land, he planned to get some sticks
of dynamite out of his barn, slip
up to it, and perhaps damage the
object so that he could have some
proof of what he saw.
The object was about as long
as a boxcar and was oval shaped.
Marlowe said. He was unable to
see any markings of any kind on
j it. He did hear a noise coming
from it which sounded like an
electric motor under load.
After he had watched the object
for approximately 25 minutes, it
began to move gradually to the
j .vest getting higher as it moved
I away. Marlowe said that the noise
ι coming from it became louder as
I it began to move.
Saturday afternoon around 2 30
Marlowe found one of his cows
dead on the spot over which the
object had hovered 14 hours earl
ier, he said. The cow was lying
down with her legs folded up
underneath her so that at first
Marlowe thought she was resting
or was asleep. He threw a stick
at her, but she did not move. Then
he discovered she was dead.
There was no sign of struggle
connected with the cow's death.
Her nose was pushed slightly into
the dirt and pieces of the rye
from the pasture were in her
mouth.
Saturday morning when he
milked and fed the cow she ap
peared to be in good health. About
ten o'clock he turned her and his
other cow out into the pasture.
When he left his farm at 12:30 to
go to Loris, he noticed that both
cows were grazing. Then when he
returned to his farm at 2:30 he
(Continued on page 8

SAUCER
(Continued From Page Onei
> found one of them dead.
Marlowe said that he is not sure
that there is any connection be
| twee η his cow's death and the ap
! pea ranee of the object the previ
| ο us night, but that the two things
are mighty coincidental.
Marlowe also said that Leon
Hardee, who lives one-half mile
south of him, had lost a horse
two days earlier with no signs
of death struggle and with grass
, in its mouth.
While Marlowe's experience is
the most spectacular report, oth
ers have seen mysterious lights
passing through the sky. The Lacy
Hardees. the Roscoe Wilsons, the
Levi Shelleys, and Miss Emma
dell Prince, all of whom live in
the newly developed area of Loris
behind Prince's Esso Station, re
port that between nine and 9:15
Friday night, February 13th, they
saw some mysterious object.
They first noticed the object
travelling from the south of Loris.
They watched it move over Loris
and on to the north. Then it
turned around and passed back
towards the south.
All they could see was a light,
shining steadily, about the size
of a fist, Roseoe Wilson said. When
the object turned, the light be
came larger, but returned to its
former size after it straightened
up.
The Wilsons and Hardees said
that the object turned not to the
right or left but turned up when
it changed course to the north of
Loris.
j After the object got too close
to the horizon to be seen the Lacy
Hardees rode to the junction of
Highway 701 and the street that
goes down by H. Clay Hughes
Store and Brick Warehouse and
watched the object for about 25
minutes.
At this time the object which
part of the time appeared about
the size of a star seemed to circle
down until it reached a certain
height. Then it rapidly darted up
and tu one side, and then began
circling down again. It kept up
this motion all the time they
watched it.
They left their vantage point
twice to find the Loris police.
After they returned the second
time they discovered that the ob
ject had disappeared.
Earlier the same evening Bob
Benton, station agent for the At
lantic Coast Line at I.oris, sighted
la strangely lighted object in thi
I sky at Nixon's Crossroads on
Highway 9 at he was driving tc
his home at Cherry Grove Beach
The object came from over th<
water and seemed to curve to the
south over the land. "It was just
a big ball of white light on a level
course," Mr. Benton said.
When he got to Cherry Grove
Beach N. F. Nixon. Sally Rogers,
and a Cox man told him that they
had also seen the object.
Mark Garner of Myrtle Beach,
co-owner of this paper, states that
he saw a lighted object pass
through the skies the same night
at 6:20 P. M.
A similar object was reported
seen a number of times the same
night in Marion County.

BOOTH SAYS FLYING SAUCER
WAS NOT A NAVY BLIMP

Conway, S. C.—Feb. 17 — The'
Horry County farmer who on Jan
uary 29 became the only man in
the world to shoot a flying saucer
today debunked a CAA suggestion
that he might actually have
"wounded" a Navy blimp.
Lloyd C. Booth. 29, said: "I have
seen many blimps and I've even
been in one. I'd certainly know a
blimp when I saw one 80 feet over
my head."
That was the height of the uni
dentified object which floated |
slowly over Booth's farm on the;
eventful night and which soared
away after he shot at it with a
.22 pistol. Booth sighted the object ι
after a commotion among his live
stock sent him in search of a pos
sible prowler.
The blimp suggestion came yes
terday from C. VV. Hall of the CAA
control tower at Bluethenthal
Filed, Wilmington. N. C. Hall said
three Navy blimps were en route
from Glynco, Ga.. to Woeksville. j
N. C., on January 29 and that one
of them could easily have passed
over Horry County at midnight
when Booth was patrolling his
farm.
High headwinds kept the blimps
low. Hall said, which was why
Booth spotted one just ten feet
above the pines on his land.
Booth rejected the bilmp possi
bility on the basis of his past ex
perience with th< craft. He added:
"I was with an anti-aircfaft unit
for 22 months during the war and
I was trained to indcntlfy planes
on sight. If the object I saw and
shot was a plane or a blimp, I
surely would have known. I
watched the thing for almost 30
minutes."
Booth described the craft as be
ing circular, with the conteur of |
an egg sliced from end to end.
He viewed it from dircctly below
and from both sides, but was un
able to detect any identifying
marks or means of propulsion. He
saw dim lights emanating from
what might have been a cabin on
the forward topside and near the
underside tail.
While cruising from east to
west over him, the craft gave off
a low hum. like a distant auto.
Booth was able to keep pace with
the vessel at an average walking
speed. It was almost directly above
him when he fired at it; his bullet
struck with a metallic sound. The
craft shot up and away instantly
and was beyond range when Booth
fired a second time.
"It took off at a speed I'd esti
mate at 700 miles an hour." Booth
said today. "I never heard of a
blimp going that fast."
CAA-man Hall opined that an
Investigation of the blimps now
at Weeksville would reveal a dent
in the bottom of one of them
where Booth shot it. The Navy has
not announced any such damage
or indicated any association with
the shooting since the event was
reported.
Reports of flying saucers have
been frequent in this area during
the past few weeks. One was seen
near Myrtle Beach a week before
the Booth shooting. A Marine
Corps jet pilot pursued and lost
a strange craft along the Carolinas
coast. Last Friday, another was
seen by four people at Myrtle
Beach, heard by another, then
seen by six others a few minutes
later over Marlon, S. C.
1 Latest reports were made last
night when three Myrtle Beach
residents saw an unidentifiable
object fly inland at approximately
1000-foot altitude.
