    Contrail Update

    You heard about it. You heard the theories. You never heard good explanations. This is the update.

    Mysterious missile launch baffles even eyewitnesses

    It's been a month since a mysterious contrail that gave the appearance of being generated by a missile launch was spotted off the coast of California, and the U.S. government simply told its citizens there was no danger.
    Since then, officials steadfastly have refused to elaborate on that first response, even though it later was revealed that a U.S. agency had warned the nation might be launching missiles in that area at that time.
    But even eyewitnesses are unable to provide a definite agreement on exactly what generated the sky-high image of a trail of exhaust that some adamantly believe was from a missile; while others conjecture was produced by a passing jetliner.
    Watch the video.

    I thought it was concluded to be a jetliner. There was some local there that says he has proof it happens all the time. I will have to hunt for a link if I can find it.

    That idea was floated originally, but it never panned out to my knowledge. The launching point appeared north of Catalina island, and if a new, quiet Chinese SBLCM, proof that their sub was able to sneak into our waters. Defense Dept probbaly hopes this story is forgottten.

    Yeah, I'd heard it was an airliner, and the scale created an optical illusion making it look like a missile. Of course, if it was an unknown missile, they would probably just say it was an arliner...

    What no one wants you to know is it was a new spy satellite launched from Van Nuys air Force base by the recently declassified agency NRO.

    He'll be back on-line as soon as he get through with the six trench coat-wearing fellas who just arrived at his front door in a black Suburban with tinted windows.


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).

    The real question here is it one of ours or one of theirs?

    It was concluded that it was an US Airway flight from Hawaii to Phoenix.

    There's flames coming out of the back of it. I'm calling BS on people saying it was an airliner.

    Where do you see flames? Looks like a normal airliner reflecting sunlight to me.
