69th Anniversary of the "1942 Battle over Los Angeles"

For whatever reason, we shelled the sh*t out of something 69 years ago today over LA.

Now which one of you were around then (and remember).

What is your opinion of what happened? The USAF now says it was meteorological balloons (those balloons sure were a problem for the public, were they not?).

said by Men in Black :

At the end of the war, the Japanese stated that they did not send planes over the area at the time of this alert, although submarine-launched aircraft were subsequently used over Seattle. A careful study of the evidence suggests that meteorological balloons—known to have been released over Los Angeles —may well have caused the initial alarm.


I guess there is a movie coming out about the incident. Perhaps they know the Truth™ and are going to expose it! Like has been done with bigfoot, Roswell, the Kennedy assassination, and so forth.

I can't believe Murray Hamilton got better billing in that movie than Eddie Deezin!!

The whole area was nervous leading up to that night. Three nights before, a Japanese sub fired 25 shells into an oil field north of Santa Barbara.
