Mimicry may be the Objective of ETI Triangular and Diamond-shaped Probes

(If Here, How Would ETI Communicate?)
A nagging question has remained unanswered for the past eight years, ever since Cornet became involved in studying the Pine Bush phenomenon: Why all the performances? By performance I mean the deliberate presentation of information in the form of craft behavior, AOP lighting, and changing patterns and intensity of lighting.
Over that eight years considerable data were presented to and recorded by Cornet. From those data certain characteristics of the performances remained constant or nearly so:
Times of performances (dusk to Midnight).
Places of performances (AOP came to observers).
Stealth in appearance (i.e. low observable).
Flaring of headlights during initial approach to the camera.
Strobes that resembled the colors and positions of navigation lights on conventional aircraft.
Aspects of flight patterns that resembled the aerodynamic performances of conventional aircraft.
sounds that resembled the sounds of conventional aircraft.
However, other characteristics of the performances are at odds with what is typical for conventional aircraft or what is aerodynamically possible for aircraft dependent on wings and/or air/thrust for flight. All the characteristics listed below have been documented on Cornet's various web pages.
Ability of craft to travel at air speeds well below the stall speed of all conventional fixed-wing jets and propeller-driven aircraft.
Ability of craft to stop in midair, make sharp right angle turns while moving, and to fly sideways and even backwards.
Ability of craft to do stunts which would be difficult for even the best human pilots to perform, and suicidal to make at night and below 1,000 feet altitude over wooded areas, such as rolling over and flying upside down.
Ability of craft to unfold and fold up its wings, and to fly without wings.
Ability of craft to cut all sound and to produce harmonic sounds rather than sounds typical of turbine or propeller-driven aircraft.
Ability of craft to travel at supersonic speeds without making a sonic boom or creating any noise or significant air turbulence.
Some aircraft of human design can hover and travel at slow speeds, but they are usually very noisy (e.g. helicopters and jump jets).
Aside from the unusual shapes of these craft, which range from triangles to diamond and boomerang shapes, they all had the characteristic of blending in with the night background. In other words, the surfaces of the craft were stealth or low observable, and reflected minimal or no light from the various navigation lights and strobes that they carried, even when headlights flared or strobes flashed so brightly that their intensity would illuminate major portions of the airframe of a conventional jetliner.
During Cornet's encounters craft would present him with considerable recordable data. Only on rare occasions would his instruments and/or cameras be interfered with or disabled, and that was usually only temporary.
So why the mix of data types? Why wave a red flag in front of cameras and put on performances if these were all military aircraft?
Take for example The Performance on 29 April 1993 in front of the Sightings camera crew. Between 8:41 pm and 10:09 pm eight craft were videotaped and/or photographed, six of which flew in the air while two acted as observation craft near or on the ground. Two craft, one triangular-shaped and the other diamond-shaped, flew deliberate patterns in front of the cameras, making right angle turns, flying sideways, and turning on batteries of plasma lights. For the U.S. Airforce to have conducted this performance with conventional aircraft, the cost to the tax payers is estimated to have been at least $50,000, and perhaps as high as $100,000 when the number of aircraft, pilots and crew time, ground crew, fuel, pre-maintenance, planning and preparation are taken into consideration. If the U.S. military was responsible, the question must be asked: WHAT WAS THE OBJECTIVE OR PURPOSE? To get on National Television?
Therefore, when Cornet and Hartwell went to West Searsville Rd. on 4 May 2000, what is the probability that military intelligence was aware of their presence, and ordered two aircraft to go out and give them a visit? Do you actually think the military would be that interested in any civilian to be waiting for the opportunity to buzz Cornet and associates?
If you think that Cornet has once again misidentified conventional aircraft under the delusion that he could elicit or evoke such a response, the data presented below must first be studied before any judgement or conclusion can be rendered.
Cornet and Hartwell went to West Searsville Rd. to observe AOP activity, because Dr. Steven Greer had scheduled a week long field expedition and course for the Pine Bush area. Cornet wanted to have first hand knowledge of any AOP activity when Greer's CSETI group was in the field (oddly, no record of a field report is available on the CSETI website, and the Pine Bush expedition is no longer listed as having occurred). No information is available from those who participated in Greer's course, because he had all participants sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA): Unusual for someone who supposedly wants to get the truth out.
Unfortunately, Cornet chose the wrong date, and later learned that CSETI had been at the (Volk) County Line Farm the night before on 3 May. He also learned from local skywatchers that the CSETI group had an encounter with two military helicopters on that night.
If Greer and his CSETI group were visited by two military helicopters on the night of 3 May, couldn't that be an indication that the military was watching and interested in what Greer was doing? Yes, of course it could. So why couldn't what Cornet and Hartwell saw be classified the same way?
Confused? You should be. But to get through this quagmire of uncertainty, you first need to study the data, and then consider my interpretation based on facts, not speculation.
