I've been studying the various images of these
odd aerial drones, when the latest picture posted
from Birmingham, Alabama, caught
"I was immediately overcome with the damnedest feeling
that I had seen this EXACT drone before, but not in
the air---instead, ON THE GROUND and UP CLOSE. And
to top it off, this was around twenty or more years
ago. I had long since forgotten about it.
I thought I had seen it in some sort of static display
or something, with people around it...then I remembered:
I saw this thing in a hangar at Barksdale AFB, Louisiana,
at one of the open house air shows around twenty or so
years ago (1987?). It was a static display (mounted on a dolly
or cart), and there were people around it (that is, some
visitors to the air show).
It was a display by some major aerospace contractor. I
A number of us had wandered into the open hangar and were
just standing there, looking at it, and at some of the
other displays (some air-to-air missiles, I think). There
were about three or four hangars with public displays, and
this one, or so we all thought, was one of them.
I do have a vague recollection of somebody 'official'
coming out there and telling a couple of the Air Force
guys that the unit wasn't supposed to be out on PUBLIC
display (i.e., apparently it was meant for display to
MILITARY PERSONNEL ONLY), and that they needed to get
it put out of sight.
The military guys then ran everybody (including me) out
of the hangar, and closed the doors.
There was even a brochure, but I recall only that I may
have picked it up briefly and looked at it, then put it
back down. It had an artist's rendering of the unit on
display. Unfortunately, I don't have the brochure.
I don't remember what the thing was called, but it was
some kind of surveillance or intelligence gathering
drone. I wasn't that interested in it at the time,
just idly curious. (It might have been some sort of
'concept development' at that time, and maybe didn't
even work yet. I don't recall.)
I didn't see why they thought they had to run us out
of the hangar, but, of course, I respected their notion
of 'security.' (I didn't see what the big deal was
about some funny-looking ring-gadget with a 'wing.'
I suppose I must have thought it was supposed to be
some kind of satellite for watching the Russians.)
Apparently, these beasts DO exist, EVEN IF somebody did
some PhotoShop pictures of similar devices. Then again,
maybe it's some Government or military whistleblower's
idea of a 'security leak' about something that they think
has (for some unknown reason?) become a threat of some
Now, let me recap some observations about these 'drones'
from the 'Chad' and 'Lake Tahoe' series of pictures:
- The writing on the 'wing' does NOT exactly match
any known fictional language, such as Star Wars 'aurek-besh'
or Star Trek 'klingon.' (Only ONE character, 'resh,' was even close,
either right side up OR upside down, and that's probably
just an accident of design.)
- The drone appears to come in at least three different
configurations (and now four, with the Birmingham photo,
which moreover looks like possibly an 'older model').
- These craft seem to operate exclusively in areas
surrounded by federally controlled national forests.
- The drones in some of the 'Chad' photos appear to
have a high-flying unidentified aerial object above them.
- The drones appear to be searching for something,
or possibly monitoring something.
- The drones appear to be utilizing Biefield-Brown
type propulsion, although this may be only part of
the propulsive capability.
- There are sixteen 'electrodes' on the top of the
circular section, and sixteen smaller 'electrodes' on
the inner part of the circular section. Moreover,
the smaller 'electrodes' appear to mount inline
devices of some sort (diodes? capacitors?).
- The shape of the top electrode array probably
provides a field gradient that increases lifting
Anything else at this point is sheer speculation.
The three different configurations (two of which are
left-right mirrored configurations with respect to the
apparent 'cooling wing,' and the other of which uses a
second large 'wing' or sensor array, and is otherwise
symmetrical in arrangement), together with the diverse
picture sources, would suggest that the craft photos
provided may well be genuine, other factors not with-
standing (i.e., photo analysts have fooled themselves
I have personally examined the Birmingham photo in
MS Paint (admittedly not the best way, but paste-ins
CAN be detected under magnification), and I found no
obvious evidence of paste-in work or other PhotoShop
fakery. The Birmingham photo appears to be REAL. In
addition, it EXACTLY MATCHES the unit I saw on display
at the Barksdale Air Show as discussed above.
