・この宇宙服の話は過去記事でチラリと取り上げたような気もする。

・この目撃者は友人のジョークに騙されたのだろう。試作見本の宇宙服を見せて、あとは口先でいいようにからかったと。

Government Insiders

One of the more interesting government insider reports was brought to light in the pages of the APRO Bulletin by an anonymous young man, formerly of the United States Air Force, who in September 1952 was serving in the Air Force Reserves but planning on reenlisting for active duty soon to finish his military career in the United States Army. He presented his article in person to Coral Lorenzen, APRO Director, and a corroborating witness, who remained unidentified.

The airman’s report follows:

“In November of 1949, I was on my way to the West Coast to see my mother, who was ill. I went by way of Wright-Patterson field and had a three-hour layover there. Upon arriving at the field, I met a long-time friend of mine then stationed at Wright-Patterson. One of the current topics of the day was flying saucers; and I displayed my skepticism when he mentioned them.

“My friend became pretty disgusted with me, and got a pass to take me to a certain building at the field. He said, ‘I’ll prove to you that saucers are real. They are interplanetary spaceships, and manned by human beings.’ Of course, I laughed at him; but I went along. He took me to the building and showed me a number of suits which were similar to the apparel worn by jet pilots. They were thick, and green in color. The helmets that went with them were similar to divers’ helmets. I was also shown diagrams of the saucers that showed that the ships carried oxygen, and gave information as to the location of the controls, showing that the cabin of the ship was round.

“The funny thing about the suits was that they were in sizes ranging from what a two-year-old child would wear up to the size that would fit a six to six-and-a-half foot tall man. I don’t remember how many suits there were. Three, I think.”

Coral Lorenzen questioned the Reserve airman closely, attempting to trip him up on his story. For instance, she asked him how he could have gotten in to see these artifacts when they were all classified TOP SECRET; but he replied that the only thing he could figure out was that the “lid had not yet been put down” on it; and his friend had been working on the project. Also, the Reserve airman believed that his own military job classification while on active duty at that time may have lent the impression that he was somehow affiliated with the project and had a “need to know,” given that he was accompanied into the secure area by a authorized worker in that building. From the Reserve airman’s testimony, the APRO director concluded that since he made no reference to the “little men” story of the Hollywood journalist Frank Scully, he was not an ardent flying saucer enthusiast. His referring to the space suits as being tailored for “men of radically different sizes” gave his account a ring of truth. The color of the space suits did not jibe with the color of the suits in Scully’s rendition, either, which tended to make his story more credible, at least in the mind of Coral Lorenzen.



核心部分の機械翻訳(DeepL)



"友人は私に嫌気がさしたようで、私をある建物に連れて行くためのパスを手に入れた。"円盤が実在することを証明してやる。それは惑星間宇宙船で、人間が乗っているんだ』と言ったのです。もちろん、私は彼を見て笑ってしまいましたが、私はその通りにしました。彼は私を建物に連れて行き、ジェットパイロットが着ているようなスーツを何着か見せてくれた。それは厚手で、緑色をしていました。ヘルメットはダイバーのヘルメットに似ていた。また、船が酸素を運んでいることを示すソーサーの図を見せてもらい、操縦装置の位置についての情報を得て、船のキャビンが丸いことを示した。

"面白いことに、スーツのサイズは、2歳の子供が着るようなものから、身長180センチから180センチの男性が着るようなものまでありました。何着あったか覚えていないが 3着だったと思う
