Hi Gildas

I believe I've expressed the opinion before on this List that
Minot AFB 1968 is a fascinating and presently unexplained case.

I have had some small involvement with aspects of the (ongoing)
research project you refer to in recent years. But I would
describe the witness evidence as sometimes ambiguous, the
documentation as incomplete and flawed, crucial aspects of its
reconstruction as uncertain, and the anwer to the very complex
question "What happened?" as an ultimately inconclusive one.

For clarity can you point to one aspect of this group of
incidents and explain why it is exceptionally strong evidence
for something that could not be explained by unrecognised
natural phenomena of some type? So that we can have a focused
discussion about it?

Martin Shough
