The UK’s Area 51…?

RAF Machrihanish

[Edit: Simon Holland isn’t a Professor –…

I’m not a PHD Scientist but I am a Professor (having taught in higher education)..I like asking questions because I don’t know all the answers. My idea is to raise questions and start a debate…if you are an expert, tell us what really happened. My background is in TV. I have worked for, Discovery Ch, Nat Geo, PBS, making science and history films.

Working in Higher Education (as I do) does not make you a professor!! I advise treating his videos with some caution – as they may be diversionary in certain respects.]

Thanks to Dan and Gary for sending the link to the first part of this. It’s a short video series by Professor Simon Holland about Machrihanish – a Scottish airbase (which I’d never heard of). Apparently, it has the longest runway in Europe.

I think the “UK Area 51” videos promised a bit more than was delivered, but they are a worthwhile watch.

I fear the good professor has not got far enough down the line to the later destinations – as I noticed another video on his channel where he started to wax lyrical about Apollo 10… I was thinking of sending him a link to my FSSP book, because Ed Fouche was one of the people who stated that Aurora was a programme, not an aircraft. (Holland mentions this in this video series.  See if you haven’t already! ) Also, it seems the good Professor is into making pronouncements rather than studying evidence he is less familiar with…
