Don,

Clarification.

I know the Mantell case and know he was about to fly by. The
pilot on the ground I referred to was not Mantell, but
supposedly a witness. It turns out this witness did not believe
in UFOs and was certain later that Mantell was chasing a balloon
that looked disk-like.

I am still not convinced that Mantell was 'closing' on a
balloon.
