Falcon Project Ground Response Team

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 6th, 2012

Falcon Project proposes to conduct an extensive aerial search for an unrecognized North American primate, a.k.a. sasquatch or bigfoot, by means of an helium-filled airship, upon which a platform supporting thermal-imaging and high resolution wireless videography equipment is mounted. The Aurora Mk II airship offers major advantages over similar applications with helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft platforms, foremost, stealth and maneuverability.

The Falcon Project project founder and manager William Barnes named his “Quick Response Investigative Ground Team” that will follow up sasquatch sightings by way of the drone airship with the team of bigfoot researchers from The Olympic Project headed by Derek Randles.

Derek Randles has been searching for sasquatch in the Olympic Mountain range for over 25 years and he along with his team of researchers will lead the ground response team that will come in the next day and follow the track of the creature collecting evidence on the ground after reviewing the video filmed by the Falcon airship.

    I recommend using or adding to your equipment – Point of View cameras (POV). As I’m sure you have seen on the various TV shows, the personnel involved will say, “Look at that.” Of course the camera is pointed at the individual and by the time they get the camera pointed at the object of alert, it is gone. A POV is looking at the same point as the individual. If the individual is looking at it, so is the camera.

  2. sasquatch responds:

    I don’t have much faith in the Aerial approach. These critters love tree cover and you won’t see much in the most likely scenario that they dive into the bush.

  3. DWA responds:


    The aerial approach won’t ever be enough, by itself. But given how other approaches have worked, why not try it? Some other really cool stuff might show up, too; maybe we’ll find out things we don’t know about “known” species.

    The key will be intensive follow-up when something promising is located. That will be the tough part.

    I’m glad Mr. Barnes used my ideas for the Quick Response Team. I presented the quick response team concept to him when I was a Falcon Project member last year. Prior to that time he didn’t think such a team was needed, he said the video from the blimp would be enough evidence, I strongly disagreed. The quick response team was originally going to be present during the aerial survey to quickly react to any possible activity once the creature was spotted from the air and also used to collect evidence the following day.

    Here is the information from when I proposed the idea in 2002 to conduct an aerial search using my thermal camera from an aircraft with ground deployment teams ready to react when a creature was spotted. This was to take place just before the 2002 Texas Bigfoot Conference in Texas.

    Operation Night Scan

    “Through many years of research the T.B.R.C. has determined peak feeding times for Bigfoot inhabiting our research areas. We have been fortunate enough to discover these areas, and have made many new discoveries concerning these animals’ habits. Bigfoot, in general, are creatures of habit just as is any other wildlife indigenous to these locales. Their movements and feeding patterns can then be determined by careful documentation of evidence found while conducting field research.

    With this new knowledge, the Texas Bigfoot Research Center is preparing to take the next step in our research by using the newest electronic technology available. With the help of top researchers from the United States and British Columbia, we are taking our efforts into the air incorporating thermal imaging technology in an attempt to film one of these magnificent creatures. By coordinating our efforts from the ground and air, our chances of obtaining film footage, and new data will be increased dramatically.

    TBRC member Freddie L. Main II, has offered the use of his aircraft, a Cessna 170, and himself to pilot it. William Dranginis, of Virginia has offered his services, and the use of his thermal imaging gear and other hi-tech surveillance equipment, including his research vehicle, “The Bigfoot Primate Research Lab”. Dr. John Bindernagel of British Columbia will be participating, along with several other researchers from across the country and news media.

    There will be multiple ground teams placed in specific locations in each area being sweeped, each team utilizing the latest technology, including the just released Garmin Rino 120 GPS-Integrated FRS/GMRS Radios. This will enable the air team to radio our ground dispatch the coordinates of a possible Bigfoot being filmed with the thermal imaging unit. The ground dispatch will then radio the team/teams closest to the coordinates given and move immediately to the area in hopes of intercepting the animal, in hopes of capturing it on video using thermal imaging and Gen III night vision cameras.

    There will be three attempts made in three different research areas. Dense jungle type forests layered with tree canopies, including heavy undergrowth, making movement difficult at best. Swampy regions riddled with bog holes, snakes, and alligators. Dense pine forests with steep inclines to maneuver up and down. All three areas are hard to traverse, but our teams are prepared for the task at hand.”

    My mother passed away just days before the conference and while on the road to the conference, the Bigfoot Research Vehicle transmission gave out, eliminating the possibility of Operation Night Scan.

    I do wish the Falcon team well but there are major issues they need to address even before the craft is built. It is my recommendation that a much smaller craft can be manufactured at a fraction of the cost and achieve the same results. I’m currently working on this here in Virginia.

  5. Goodfoot responds:

    To attempt to make myself clear, I am not opposed to this line of inquiry. They got the money, they can spend it however they wish. On a personal level, I have the gravest of doubts this will produce anything of further use than we already possess. We have that NM infrared (or whatever that was) clippage from BFRO. And what does that prove that will sway anyone’s opinion? With regard to the “skeptical” (i.e., professional doubters) community – will this change any minds?

    You all already know the answer. I used to be among the “provers”, thinking it would advance something. Now I know it will not advance anything. I’d rather see them remain an elusive mystery; it certainly would be better for them. They don’t need us at all; it’s we that need them, and there are better, more personal methods of achieving that.

    Like Thom Powell says: It’s an embassy we should be establishing, on their territory. They’re not gonna establish one on ours.
