    The US Air Force's official investigations into UFO sightings was called "Project Bluebook" and was headquartered here at Wright-Patterson AFB at the then-called Foreign Tech Division (FTD). It's now called the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC).

    Last month during at pot growing raid, Local police and the DEA called in the FBI and US Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) because they found over 1,000 page of print Top Secret documents. Who knows, maybe this guy was part of the Storm Area 51 movement.

    What was the TV series based on those investigations? "Project UFO" or something like that?

    I think Space Force should have the authority to conscript anyone who trespasses at Area 51

    Yes, "Project U.F.O." aired from 1978-1979 and serialized some of the investigations.
    There was a second series, called "Project Blue Book" released earlier this year. My dad watched a few episodes and wasn't impressed.

    When I used to work on Wright-Patterson AFB, people would always ask me "Isn't that where they keep the Martians?" I would look at them and reply "No, Wright-Patt is where the Venusians live. The Martians live in Nevada. You see, if you put the Venusians and Martians together, the Venusians try to eat the Martian." That would always be followed up by "Really?"

    That's funny. I pictured Warthogs being brought into this a couple of days ago :).

    AC-130 was the first that came to my mind...

    Wasn't impressed...….
    Your dad and me both....the cars, sets and costumes were realistic...for the era.
    But the episodes had little to nothing to do with the actual Blue Book cases...to the point they bore no resemblance at all.
    I'm surprised the J Allen Hynek estate even let the show producers use his name, but then again, in this day and age, maybe I shouldn't be surprised.

    Given the permanent damage done to the well meaning UFO researchers by the likes of William Cooper, Richard Doty et. al (and may as well throw in John Lear Jr. as well) ...the actual case research could have been presented much better. They could have used the great special FX available today to show first what people thought they saw in their mind, then do a down to earth visual of what JAllen Hynek and the USAF think it was that they saw, and then let the TV viewers make up their own mind.
    Instead we got over the top ridiculous versions of the real events, with some lesbian advances made on J Allen Hynek's wife by a Russian "red sparrow" agent thrown in.
    Absurd.

    No. We. Don't.

    Based on my scores the last time I qualified on small arms, if I shoot at a target anywhere out to 375 yards (the longest distance we shoot at), there is a 90 percent chance that target will die. That goes up to 99 percent for anything under 175 yards. I only need to qualify once every couple years for my job. Imagine what my friends who do that sort of thing every day for a living can do?

    Is this raid a bad idea? Uh-huh. But at the same time, I hope they try it and I hope the networks televise the raid and the results. It certainly will be entertaining to watch.

    You remember the first Transformers movie? One of the soldiers paints a Decepticon with a laser and radios “Bring the rain.”

    The AC-130 is what brought it.
