Hi Dan,

Bruce Maccabee where are you?!

We need Bruce to chime in on this one. He's been 'among the
missing' throughout this thread. This stage of the inquiry is
where Bruce can make the most valuable contribution. I'm itching
to find out what the size, distance, and speed estimates will
show. We're stuck debating birds and bugs. According to Amy
Hebert's graphic depiction of what she sees, the object in the
Whittlesea photo is a 'winged' flying turd.

"Mr. Hanky" joins the Air force!

See the graphic, it's amazing! The website is called, 'Reality
Check'. The only thing she fails tell us is; if it is us, or
herself, who needs the 'Reality Check!' Check this thing out, -
 it's a riot! <vbeg>


We need to ascertain the facts and have some basic measurements
made. Then the discussion can 'hopefully' proceed based on a
solid foundation of reliable facts -with real legs.

Let's see if one of these posts brings Bruce out of whatever
cave he's been hiding out in. We need his analytical knowledge
and experience right about now.

Looking forward to learning more and hopefully sooner than


John Velez
