TT:A hundred total?
RC:I would think so.
TT:Possibly more. So they were shooting long before, and after this group?
RC:Yeah, basically, not long before, because, you know, if I remember right, they saw it. See, there's no reason to have this camera on if they're not doing a bomb run.
TT:Yeah, they were coming in. I'm sure they were packing up.
RC:Yeah, it was off. They saw it, they turned it on, and if I remember right, they left it on until they landed... so I can't remember what the time frame was.
TT:I suppose that if they had film in it, they might just leave it on?
RC:Yeah, they left it on until they landed, but I don't remember how long it was from the time they saw it until the time they landed.
TT:Well the thing is they didn't just come in and land, they did a low approach and those were taken at 4:06.
RC:But the object wasn't on the film all that long.
TT:No, it wasn't—for a few minutes, probably from about 3:58 when their radios go out, that's when the object approached. When their radios came back on, that's when they were through with the radio, you know—they claim that's where they stopped—the documents say that's when they stopped filming, but they may be wrong about that point if you are saying they continued filming.
RC:I know.
TT:Well anyway the object dropped away. The radar operator says that to him the experience was that the thing dropped. They were coming down, penetrating, they were down at 14 [thousand feet] apparently it just kept going down, you know, then they leveled off, and once that happened, the radios came back, and that was about a four or five minute period that the thing was pacing the aircraft. But they couldn't have started filming when it first came up—
RC:No, they didn't.
