Jay, I can quite understand why a publicly funded institution like
BOM would want to keep out of controversy by not showing 
pictures of classified objects. There must be plenty of politicians
( and would-be politicians) to the right of center in US who would use 
such a situation to their advantage, and the public institutions disadvantage. 

Looking up the associated web pages of the URL Allen Thompson posted
The researcher Prof Schultz is obviously dependent on USAF for 
research data and funds, he is unlikely to rock the boat.
It just needs a private individual  to build a system like the
Boston Museum of Science, who doesnt mind a few slings and arrows.
