Barbara, Bob

My inquiry about Mr. Hyzer's analysis of some Gulf Breeze pictures
lead me to the following document:

http://www.skiesare.demon.co.uk/b-or-b.htm

Titled:

'SYNOPSIS OF WILLIAM G. HYZER'S _THE GULF BREEZE                                PHOTOGRAPHS: BONA FIDE OR BOGUS?_
 (Second edition, March 15, 1992)
 by Rex and Carol Salisberry'

The first lines read:

"Late in 1990, Mr. Walter Andrus, International Director of
MUFON, requested Mr. William G. Hyzer to undertake a photo
analysis of the Walters photos. Mr Andrus made the request at the
suggestion of Mr. Jerry Black, who had made the initial
contact with Mr. Hyzer.

"Mr. Hyzer is a nationally-recognized photogrammetrist, who was
honored by an award from the American Academy of Forensic
Sciences at their annual meeting in February 1992. Mr. Hyzer was
assisted in his analysis of the Walters photos by his son, Dr.
James B. Hyzer. Mr. Andrus provided copies of photos , 2, 5, 9,
13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 36L&R, 37L&R and 38L&R for their
work. It is unfortunate that Mr. Andrus could not provide
Walters' original photos or at least first-generation copies to
Mr. Hyzer for his analysis." I will spare you the rest.  I just
want to point out that the Hyzer's analysis is an info readily
available on the Net.  It is worth looking into.

What bugs me though (among other things), is...

" Mr. Andrus could not provide Walters' original photos or at
least first-generation copies to Mr. Hyzer for his analysis"

Did Dr. Maccabee get at least first-generation copies for his
analysis ?

Oh... BTW, the last 2 lines of the cited document read:

"ed note: William Hyzer has no particular interest in ufology and
should be considered an impartial analyst."

Phew, almost forgot to read the label <g>.
