UFO News Article (Blog):
“Rain, rain & more rain”

By Billy Cox, 27 October 2015
(De Void, Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Florida)

Billy Cox presents his fifth article on the 25 April 2013 Aguadilla (Puerto Rico) UFO video (filmed by a DHC-8 Turboprop under the command of U.S. Customs and Border Protection):

Quote from the article:
“Once it became clear CBP wasn’t going to bite, De Void filed a Freedom of Information Act request for a government copy of that video. It was apparently leaked to researchers by Customs insiders and had been lighting up the Internet a year or so before the SCU issued its report. ‘It’s not like they can deny it,’ says SCU co-author Robert Powell. “We’ve got radar records showing their plane in the air at that time.” Still, it seemed important to officially verify the provenance of the controversial clip. The ensuing brushoff a couple of weeks ago, slugged ‘Final Disposition’ and tersely worded as a ‘full denial based on exemptions,’ came as no surprise. But its crimes against coherence were abominable.

‘CBP has determined,’ stated the online rejection notice, ‘that the responsive records are partially releasable, pursuant to Title 5 U.S.C 552 and have applied the appropriate exemptions.’ De Void followed that link to a list of nine itemized potential ‘Exemptions,’ accompanied by three other separate speedbumps beneath a category called ‘Exclusions.’ The range was eclectic; it covered everything from protecting ‘trade secrets’ to ‘unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’ Unfortunately, the verdict failed to specify exactly which ‘Exemption’ or ‘Exclusion’ the CBP employed to justify its rejection of De Void’s FOIA. Furthermore, whatever the censors deemed ‘partially releasable’ is nowhere in sight.”

UFO Report:
“The Case of the Missing Report:
Blue Book Unidentified: May 1, 1952, 9:10 A.M.,
Davis-Monthan AFB, Tucson, Arizona.”

By Dr. J. Allen Hynek

Source: NICAP.org

Quote from the report:
“This case is a classic.  The late Dr. James McDonald made a valiant attempt in get details from original witnesses after discovering that a major report, submitted to Blue Book by the “UFO Officer” (who was one of the witnesses!) at Davis-Monthan, was missing.  A small part of this was apparently recovered and now appears in the Blue Book microfilms. The story is as follows:

An Air Intelligence Officer (who had as one of his regular duties, the analysis of UFO cases reported to the local air base), a B-36 crew, and an airman on the steps of the base hospital (just coming from having his knee treated) all attested to this event.  Two shiny round objects overtook a B-36, slowed down to the speed of the B-36, stayed in formation with it for about 20 seconds, then executed a sharp no-radius 70-80-degree turn from the line of flight of the B-36, and resumed original speed and went to about one-fourth the distance to the horizon where one of the two objects made an immediate stop and hovered.  There was no sound other than that of the B-36.  There were no contrails from either the objects or the B-36.

Despite the detailed description (in the original report) of the maneuvers of the two shiny, silent objects, Blue Book dismissed this case as ‘Aircraft.’ ”
