Subject: Rogue River Case

There has been a new development regarding the semi-famous Rogue
River sighting of May 24, 1949. In recent years it has been
suggested that the witnesses saw a blimp. Reasons for rejecting
that explanation based on the sighting details have been
presented in the Appendix of the article at:


However, those reasons were not good enough for "rational
skeptics" who pointed out that there was, indeed, a Goodyear
blimp in operation along the west coast in the spring of 1949
and hence it was, at least, physically possible that the blimp
was in the sighting area at the time (and hence the witnesses
saw a blimp!). Without knowledge of the operations/flight
schedules of this blimp there was no way to prove beyond a doubt
that it wasn't near the mouth of the Rogue River at about 4 PM
on that date.

Until Now!

Thanks to the effort of Steven Pyatt and with the help of the
Goodyear blimp operations staff, the log of the only known blimp
that could have caused the sighting has been retrieved from the
archives and the pages showing the locations of the blimp in May
and June of that year are presented in the Epilog of the article
at the above web site. The log shows that the blimp was at
Everett, Washington, about 390 miles from the sighting location
at the time.'
