Last Show Recap

Lake Superior F-89 & Mystery Object

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Lake Superior F-89 & Mystery Object

Show Archive
Date: Friday - September 22, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Linda Moulton Howe, Open Lines

During the first half of the show, reporter and editor for Earthfiles, Linda Moulton Howe, shared her research into the famous Kinross F-89 jet fighter that disappeared over Lake Superior on November 23, 1953. She said the F-89 had been ordered to investigate a rapidly moving UFO being tracked on radar by Kinross AFB. According to reports from the time, the radar blip of the UFO "swallowed" the radar blip of the aircraft and it was never seen again.

Recently released photos taken by Great Lakes Dive Company show the remains of an F-89 at the bottom of Lake Superior, Linda explained, as well as a strange, teardrop-shaped object located 212 feet from the plane's wreckage. Using a combination of Sharc2 side scan sonar and ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) technology, the company was able to verify the F-89's tail number and get further details on the unknown object next to it. In Linda's interview, Great Lakes Dive Company spokesman Adam Jimenez described the "mystery object" as smooth, metallic and large, with the exposed area of the object measuring 8 feet by 15 feet. Jimenez said the forensic evidence seems to point to a low-speed, low-level collision of these two objects.

Linda also talked about the current nationwide E. coli outbreak blamed on tainted bagged spinach, and stayed on to take calls from listeners into the third hour. For the remainder of the program, George offered Open Lines with a special 'We Are Not Alone' hotline.
