The Philadelphia Experiment

War Hero
Mentioned in another thread the Philadelphia Experiment remains a source of thought and wonder. Given the propensity of America to create mythtery and fictionalise our world was there ever any truth in this claim or is it another Hollywood production. Likewise, the Moon landing continues to be an area of doubt as once again this could be a Tinsel Town product.

:D :D :D
 
No he means that he served on a ship that pretended to be on water. It's the future of the navy lads - a fleet of small stone frigates circumnavigating our coast whilst using computer simulation to give the idea to the public that we still have a navy that floats on the oggin! :lol:
 
Well since the public couldn't give a toss about the Navy as long as they get their diet of Tricia and Corrie on a regular basis, this whole "stone frigate" project is surplus to requirements, a complete waste of taxpayer's money and Jack's time.

It'll probably be at the Ministerial Approval level by now...

So the upgrade to the Fleetwork Trainer at MWS has happened then? The last time I was in there, I could clearly see some of Pompey's landmarks like Victory, Warrior, Spice Island Inn, Still & West :)

The Philadephia Experiment, aka Project Rainbow :roll: , never happened. The supposed witness, one Carlos Allende, who was a merchant sailor aboard the SS Andrew Furuseth, has been pretty well discredited by anyone who has done serious research into his claims. The biggest discrepency was that his ship and the Eldridge were no where near each other when the supposed teleportation took place. As I mentioned in the other post, the most likely connection to the "disappearing ship" story was the degaussing gear, which would make it "invisible" to magnetic mines. It took on a life of its own, so to speak.
And I had the year wrong, it was 1943, not 1945.

Of course, this post could be an ingenious attempt to further fictionalise our world, and rewrite history 8)

Sorry BY, it happened, I've seen the film, in colour (sic) and American made, so therefore it must be true :lol:

Thanks BY. Yes , that claim ( PE ) was too much for anyone to cope with I reckon. At the time, 1943?, great scare tactics maybe. What's the verdict on the moon landing? Apparently another questionable achievement from what I read and admit I too share the doubt. I suppose this is the outcome from years of tampering with the truth, the cry wolf syndrome maybe. Anyway it makes interesting press and provides material for some good TV shows and movies.Difficult to know what to believe nowadays though

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Oh yes it did happen.

John F Kennedy told me, at the cheese counter in Sainsburys last Tuesday. And if you are ever in the vicinity of the New Forest, keep your eye out for Elvis taking Shergar for a trot.

By the way, I've just joined. But the UPO seems to have not been expecting me :roll:
