This is still another failed permutation of the bogus Willingham
story as new 'investigators' strive to alter the story to 'fix'
it. In the early versions of Willingham's fable, the alleged
event took place in 1948 or 1950, not 1955. Willingham even
signed a sworn affidavit in 1977 swearing under oath that it
occurred in 1948. Now we're told it was actually in 1955? How
did that change and why is this latest story more definitive
than Willingham's account thirty some years ago under sworm
oath, and much closer in time to the alleged event?

In Willingham's early story the purported crash occurred near
Laredo, Texas, some 150 miles from Del Rio, Texas. How is that
discrepancy resolved, or is it just covered up? The MJ-12
Eisenhower Briefing Document hoaxers couldn't figure it out
either so they split the distance between Laredo and Del Rio and
put the UFO crash about half way in the middle, at El Indio-

Willingham claimed he was flying from Dyess AFB, Abilene, Texas.
Only problem was that Dyess AFB had not even been built by 1948
or 1950 or 1955! Abilene AFB was not built and finished until
April 14, 1956, and not renamed Dyess AFB until Dec. 6, 1956. It
didn't exist in 1948 or 1950 or 1955.

Again, in Willingham's early stories he did not see the crash
with his eyes, but was told by radio that a Distant Early
Warning (DEW) radar had tracked the crash to a point about 15-20
miles over the border from Laredo into Mexico. But the DEW Line
was never in Texas, it was a _Distant_ radar line in Northern
Canada and Alaska, and did not go into operation until 1955-7.
So this Willingham story of a a DEW Line radar tracking and
pinpointing the UFO crash near the Texas-Mexican border in 1950
or 1948 is nonsense. Now the latest story tries to get rid of
the phony radar hogwash by covering it up and claiming
Willingham saw the crash with his eyes instead.

In the early Willingham stories he was in a two-seater F-94C jet
when the purported UFO was tracked or sighted. But there was
trouble finding any records indicating F-94C's had been
stationed in Texas in 1950 when they were first introduced. Now
in his latest story he has solved the F-94 problem but now his
radar-navigator has disappeared from the story because he flies
a single-seater F-86 instead!
