Moscow-based paranormal investigator, James L. Choron, has been following the mysterious crash of a "flying wing" shaped UFO into Kalingrad harbor which reportedly took place on April 18, 2003. He sends us this update:
Remains of Kaliningrad UFO Taken to Prominent Moscow Institute
by James L. Choron
MOSCOW, RUSSIA (Tuesday, April 29, 2003) Almost ten full days into theongoing investigation of the Unidentified Flying Object which fell,unexpectedly, into Kalingrad harbor, near the suburb of Baltisk, there arestill more questions surrounding the incident than answers. Divingoperations, at the scene, were suspended on Friday, owing to the apparentlack of any large pieces of debris, while dredging continues. Coverage onRussian State Television RTR, and other national networks has substantiallydecreased, with only the occasional mention of the fact that "operationscontinue".
Debris recovered, to date, have been transferred from the crash area to theprestigious "Baumann Institute" in Moscow, one of the foremost Engineeringfacilities in the world, specializing in aerodynamic and aeronauticalengineering, and to the Russian National Space Agency facility in the Moscowsuburb of Korolev. Both facilities are equipped to do thorough anddefinitive studies of the composition of the materials used in constructionof the craft, which is described as having been of the "flying wing" design.The relative size of the debris recovered, generally less than one meter indiameter, has hindered any reconstruction of the craft, as such, as has theabsence of any debris from the craft's power plant.
Speculation is still high that the craft was of earthly manufacture, andrepresents a "next generation" in Western "stealth" technology, as thematerials recovered to date are all of known origin, although much purer inquality than similar metals that are commercially available. According toMinistry of Defense spokesmen, all materials recovered, to date, areconsistent with current aircraft technology, however, are of a much higherquality than previously seen.
With the exception of differences in size and minor configurationaldifferences, the craft observed at Kalingrad strongly resembles theexperimental X-47A aircraft, dubbed Pegasus, which successfully completedits initial flight on February 23, 2003, at the NAVAIR Pacific test range inSouthern California. There is also a strong physical resemblance to anearlier version of the UAV aircraft which was unveiled Le Bourget airport,in Paris, during the June 19, 2001 Paris Air Show by the Northrop GrummanCorporation.
While the possibility of the craft being of earthly manufacture is beinginvestigated, and, in fact, treated quite seriously, there is still the fargreater possibility that it is of extraterrestrial origin. The technologyexhibited by the performance of the craft, its high speed and the totalabsence of sound, are, as far as is known, completely beyond the capabilityof any known manufacturer or design bureau in either the West or in Russia.While experiments into masking the sound of an aircraft have, in fact, beenongoing for many years, so far, no success, to an observed degree, has beenknown to have been achieved.
A disturbing note with regard to the release of information concerning thecraft, and the incident in general is the seeming attempt to block access tosuch information, in the West. While information flows, more or less freelywithin Russia, attempts to transmit such material abroad are meeting withresistance. Many, if not all Western owned mainstream media outlets aresimply not releasing information on the incident. Such information as hasmanaged to be released, in the early stages of the investigation, wassketchy, at best, and later releases have been altered and "tampered with"after transmission, and before receipt. Such manipulation is not takingplace inside the Russian Federation, but, rather, at some point aftertransmission. Likewise, a number of "unidentified" incursions have been madeinto various internet based news sources which have handled the information,with several experiencing shut-downs and various technical problems. All ofthese sources are U.S. based.
At this point, in the investigation, two questions arise. Who, or what"entity" would have a vested interest in keeping information regarding thisincident from reaching the general public, in the West, and why? As thesaying goes, "all that glitters is not gold". By the same token, it wouldappear that all that falls from the sky is not, necessarily ofextraterrestrial origin, or if it is, there is a vested interest, at somepoint, in keeping this fact from being known.
