Another Thunderbird Photo?

I was just sent this other photo purporting to be "The" Thunderbird photo. As far as I can tell it has only been around something like 5-6 years and it is much, much too vague to account for all of the reports that the original Thunderbird photo had been sharp and clear: in particular, none of the specific remarks that the rememberers recalled about the way that the men or the bird looked can be verified. It does not agree at all with John Keel's description, for one example. Nonetheless I am adding it here for the sake of completeness.


  1. I like this one. Close to how i always pictured it would look.

  2. I think this version is indeed very close to the way most people think the photo must have looked. BUT there is no indication that this photo existed at all before 2000 or even before about 2005.It is vague and blurry enough that it could have been chemically drawn on a photograph negative and not to have taken a great deal of artistic skill in the production. We cannot see even distinctly if that is a building or a hillside. nor yet whether or not the darkened area is only a spread cloth or tar paper, or maybe even an excavation in the hillside. In short, unless another cleaer version of this photo should show up, it is much too indistinct to say anything definite about either pro or con. Its just a bad photo.

    Best Wishes, Dale D.

  3. I can see it is a building wall and not a hillside. What if this is the photo that Sanderson showed in Pierre Berton show? Perhaps this was taken from one frame of a recorded video tape where Sanderson is holding his photo. That might explain the blurriness.
