Unwin" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Thu, 30 Oct 1997 15:54:52 -0800 Fwd Date: Fri, 31 Oct 1997 07:17:14 -0500 Subject: Belgian UFOs and Other military 'Tests' The whole problem with military testing "theories" explaining UFOs in Belgium, Mexico City, or Phoenix, is that when you want to keep a test secret, you don't due it in front of millions of potential witnesses. I spent 9 1/2 years in the army, and even unclassified tests are held on military bases so that the testing can be controlled. If something goes wrong, the public won't generally know about it. At Ft Sill Oklahoma the army was testing a new experimental RPV (Remote Piloted Vehicle) named Aquila. During one test the RPV disappeared. Two days or so later it was found in "farmer Brown's" pasture (Lawton OK or FT Sill post newspaper April-December 1986 time frame as a source). Tests go wrong and when they do in full sight of the public, it causes embarassment. Could you imagine the political and military fallout of something like this (LoFlyte, Aurora,etc) crashing into someone's backyard? Also, europe, Mexico City, and Phoenix are densely populated areas which increases the chance of being seen to unacceptable levels if it is supposed to be a secret. There are plenty of wide open government owned spaces in the American west (I know because I live there) to operate in complete secrecy.
