Skyhook/Venus section overlap[edit]

  • There seems to be some overlap between the Skyhook balloon paragraph and the Venus paragraph. Could someone familiar with the subject matter re-write those in a clearer fashion? Aervanath 10:35, 24 January 2007 (UTC)


I don't see anything about Quinton Blackwell's testimony shown on an episode of the TV series Sightings in October of 1996, where he agrees to meet with Mantell's grieving children and tells them exactly what Mantell said and what occurred in the radio tower. I feel this is very significant to this UFO case, regardless of what it might have been he was chasing. I'm sure someone out there has this episode on video and can write a paragraph or 2 so that the full story can be told. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.28.197.105 (talk) 02:50, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Odd coincidence[edit]

Where Mantell crashed and died was near the town where he was born: Franklin, Kentucky.

The crash site seems odd in relation to the facts mentioned in the story. The object was first seen over Maysville, and then spotted from Irvington and Owensboro. The crash site is nearest to Owensboro but still something like 90 miles distant. If Mantell was truly near the object, would his aircraft have fallen so far away? Perhaps it just seems odd as the one could assume the object was seen over Owensboro rather than at a distance from it. 91.32.81.117 (talk) 12:36, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

More Related Data?[edit]

Currently the article has this statement: ...In 1956, USAF Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, the supervisor of the Air Force's Project Blue Book study into the UFO mystery, would write that the Mantell Crash was one of three "classic" UFO cases in 1948 that would help to define the UFO phenomenon in the public mind... as a reader, I immediately wondered what the other two "classic" UFO cases in 1948 were, but alas there is no link. Can anyone add this? 218.25.32.210 (talk) 08:47, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

The other two "classic" UFO cases in 1948 Ruppelt was referring to were the Gorman Dogfight and the Chiles-Whitted UFO sighting (it's also a Wikipedia article, but I can't remember the exact name of the article). Hope this helps. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.145.229.162 (talk) 04:19, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
