Let me add Guy Kirkwood (aka Mel Noel and Noel Bryce Cornwall)
who was never a jet jockey for the USAF, who never flew DC-8s
for United Airlines, who did not graduate from Cheshire Academy,
who was not threatened by Don Dornan, etc ad nauseum.

How about Dan Fry and Frank Stranges whose PhD's are phony as 3
dollar bills?

How about Michael Wolf Kruvant who had none of the 6 degrees he
claimed and whose 75 Plus employee research Institute was in his
head?

How about Bob Lazar with no degrees from MIT or CIT?

Frank was indeed very cagey about providing copies of documents
or time to review them. However, back in 1994 I checked with the
Historian of the Air Defense Command. Brigadier General Scanlon
had been based in Roswell in the early 1940's when it was a
training base. However, his last position with ADC was at
Mitchell Field until early 1948 as Director of Public Affairs.

Furthermore there were no ADC radar stations in New Mexico in
1947.

The claim that he dashed back over the mountains to Roswell,
woke up Blanchard and Marcel and they all dashed cross country
in the middle of the night without knowing what was there made
no sense.

He further stated that a flat bed truck made it out to the site
that night and everything was gone by dawn. This is ridiculous
because of the difficulty of the terrain, that Blanchard would
not have abandoned his post without knowing more, and there would
have been a requirement for observing the crash site in situ
before removing anything.

Obviously if Blanchard had known one of his B-29s was down with
a nuclear weapon on board, that might have been different.

Frankly I wound up liking Frank, but having no idea why he
played the games he did.
