Is That A Missile....Or Are You Just Excited To See Me?
The "EXPERTS" at NASA are now saying that the contrail was simply a commericial airliner....
Defense Department spokesman Col. Dave Lapan said Wednesday that officials were satisfied it was an airplane contrail distorted by camera angle, winds and other environmental factors including a setting sun.
Military experts studied the video and talked to all government agencies that might have been involved in a missile launch and none reported having launched one, Lapan said.
The conclusion was independently supported by Al Bowers, associate director of research at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in the Mojave Desert, and Patrick Minnis, a senior research scientist at NASA's Langley Research Center in Virginia, who studies remote sensing of the atmosphere and Earth's surface.
"A missile would look like that," said Bowers, whose 27-year career has included stints as chief or lead engineer on such programs as the SR-71 spyplanes turned over to NASA by the Air Force.
"It could potentially have a contrail that shape," he told the AP. "(But) the motion looks a little suspect to me, and my conclusion would be that, yeah, it's most probably an aircraft."
Silly goose.....it was WITNESSED by a chopper pilot.....any "distortions" from the camera angle would have been corrected by the experienced retinas attached to the human head.......don't you think an experienced chopper pilot would visually be able to distinguish a missle contrail from an airplane?
Whoooops.....it appears that a bunch of people witnessed it.....so there were a bunch of retinas that would not have been distorted by a camera angle......
Fighter Jet....Nope....Weather Man Kevin and his goggle eyed brother KNOW it was a commercial plane...
Ahhhh...it was China.....heck we import everything from them anyway.....why not?
Nope....not the Chinese...they, and the rest of the world plus a bunch of really smart Americans just want Benny to stop counterfeiting.......
our former Deputy Secretary of Defense KNOWS what it is....it is a "Big Missile"-an ICBM launched from a submarine to show off our military might to warn Asia.......warn Asia?.....he sounds like Alstry....
Could be...you hope the former Deputy Secretary of Defense would know what he was talking about........hmmmmmmmm
