It is my impression, from reading the news articles and witness
testimony and the claims by the military (Eilieen Benz, public
information officer), that the March, 1997 flare drops were done
by the Maryland National Guard during training exercises.

When the nearby air force bases were queried about the lights
their PIOs were unaware of what the National Guard had done.

It wasn't until June or July 1997 that Ms. Benz carried out a
thorough investigation and learned about the National Guard
activities. Up to that point, apparently the AF simply shrugged
off all requests for info on the lights, saying basically that
they had no information.
