This time on Harding and Valentine's directive, Allen and Quinn investigate a UFO sighting at Sedalia Air Field in Missouri by a platoon of rangers on a training mission, the sighting captured on film. When Allen and Quinn question the platoon members, they find not only that the stories differ from person to person, but that they are argumentative with each other to the point of being physically violent, which Quinn finds odd in that they are trained to work as a team, such arguments which have no place in their mentality as soldiers. An odd occurrence with some starlings at the site of the training mission leads Allen and Quinn to some theories, which they may not want to discover as the truth. It also places their lives at greater risk than with other cases as they are dealing with trigger happy soldiers who see them as the enemy.

Regular troops were not issue live ammunition during exercises and or maneuvers. At the height of war in Vietnam, even troops at the firing range were issued ammo usually one at time. There were very rare instances where a few troops would have 5 to 7 rounds for a walking part of the rifle range. Where the shooter walks and finds and shoot targets over a distance of about 300 yards. But at a stateside fort/base troops would never be issued the amount of ammo seen in the opening scenes of this episode. Even men pulling perimeter guard in stateside location are not carrying loaded weapons. The military maintains close tabs on every round of ammunition. See more »

Could have been worse, should have been better
2 March 2019 | by damienmassartSee all my reviews

At this point Project Blue Book is a bit disappointing. OK, The staging of each episode is quite good, the actors are fine, but there is something wrong with the scenario. Project Blue Book is trying to construct a labyrinthine plot with stories entangled in each other as russian dolls, but eventually all that boils down to this good old theory of conspiracy, with shadow government, secret military projects and men in black... I was expecting more investigations about real UFO cases, instead the series goes astray in dead-end directions. Where are the real cases Haynek investigated on ?!?
