    Maybe the Mexico DOD FLIR?

    If you ever see me posting anything like that, suspect my account is hacked.

    Sorry Jens, I missed this post. I'm not sure what you mean by a "scramble code". Peacetime QRA response times are not really secret, and they're usually 5 or 10 minute after receiving the telephone call. No Whatsapp yet, I think. Pilots (and crewchiefs) will usually be sleeping close to the airplanes, but need to put on g-suit before jumping in the cockpit. Most pre-flight checks will have been done already though. One or two minute alerts may require a pilot sitting in the cockpit. Not a great way to spend the weekend, but spending it in a shack attached to the concrete aircraft-shelter on an otherwise deserted airbase isn't much better... Most pilots in the squadron where I served disliked QRA duty. But maybe all these things are different in Chile, I've never been there.

    You sure are generous calling that a write-up.. it hurts the eyes! He used to visit here occasionally when we were still big on debunking Apollo hoaxers. Anyway, one of the drawn images reminded me of the Norwegian Spiral that was hyped up for a while.

    It probably really was an unidentified "flying" object, since it was no doubt a rocket launch.

    Well, I think the answer is that various mundane but confusing events are occurring, and some members of the military are misidentifying them. Other parties are taking these events and blowing them up out of all proportion, sometimes for profit. There is no suggestion of fakery, but plenty of evidence of error. Note that you do not have to be an idiot to make an error.

    Where do the UFO aliens post? It's mainstream and not conspiratorial for them. We need another forum section.

    It might be helpful if you linked to the videos.
