Did Missing Malaysia Jet Encounter A UFO?

Did Missing Malaysia Jet Encounter A UFO?

I have been talking with Frank Feschino, Jr. over the past few days about the missing Malaysian passenger plane. To refresh the reader, this is the Boeing 777-200, Flight MH370 vanishing off the coast of Malaysia on March 8, 2014. This is a very big jet with a huge reputation for safety. ...Gone without a trace...

In steps, Feschino is a researcher and author of the UFO/military history books, Shoot Them Down — The Flying Saucer Air Wars of 1952 and The Braxton County Monster-Updated and Revised Edition. He is by no means a stranger to researching missing planes and pilots, military aircraft accidents, UFOs and government cover-ups.

Jones and DelCurto

Feschino's primary case study, a case involving a missing USAF F-94 jet and 2-man crew—simply vanished into thin air, like the 777, while being tracked by several Air Force radars on September 12, 1952! Frank spent several years investigating this documented, but convoluted and mysterious, incident. He then reconstructed and recreated a precise scenario of events for this unexplained mystery entirely resurrecting the memory of forgotten pilots involved in the mishap!

From Jones Headstone...
It follows that after talking with Frank the past week I came to realize that he had some very interesting points to raise concerning this missing Malaysian jet above.  I've worked with Frank over many years, done several radio shows with him as well as a History Channel TV program.  I must allow that he is in no way scared to talk about controversial topics or give his point of view, a view with a lot of non-stretched external support. Verily, the constant reader understands neither one of us is afraid to speak our minds.

Additionally, and still on task, my being a retired veteran Army Officer and former Master Army Aviator provides that I can relate to Feschino's work handily. His work is very compelling... involving, as it does, the many missing airmen and planes and crashes that he researches, investigates, and writes about.  Frank's a tall order, and not just in person.

That comes personal. Feschino seems uniquely positioned to provide an insight on the highly strange, and do it in a manner respectful of the sensibilities of the hundreds of worried persons involved with the mystery above. The loss of life, if that's what it is, is huge.

As the days go by, the location of this Malaysian airliner is still unknown, and the mystery deepens. There has been no official explanation as to what actually occurred on that day... only speculation. The mercurial list of explanations as to what could have occurred to that Malaysian jumbo jet keeps getting longer and longer, and there are more hypotheses coming out than, at which, you could shake the proverbial stick!

Did the 777 airliner suffer a severe malfunction and explode in mid-air? Was it pilot error causing the jet to crash into the sea... or did it crash undetected into a remote jungle in Viet Nam? Was the jet hijacked by terrorists and taken to an isolated area or was it taken over by a crazed passenger who forcibly gained entry into the cockpit - subsequently crashing the plane? Did one of the pilots take over the jet and crash it or fly it to an undisclosed location? Another scenario; was the jet shot down by a hostile force or—did the plane explode, lose cabin pressure and render the pilots unconscious, causing the jet to continue on pilot-less on an unguided path to an unknown area and fate?  No one knows or is willing to say.

In other words, as theories run rampant throughout the world media, no one actually knows what happened on that early morning of March 8, 2014. But wait...on the other hand though, I ask, are there certain individuals in high political and military positions, who actually know the true story about the missing jet and are keeping a lid on the story? Did something so horrendous occur, that the powers to be, actually chose to keep the truth from the public?  It's not like it doesn't happen, eh?

While the world wonders what really happened to Flight MH370 and the 239 people on board, we'll explore some other possible explanations later on, but now, a brief synopsis of the missing passenger plane incident just to nail down what can be nailed down.

This plane, a Boeing 777-200 jet, departed from Kuala-Lumpar, Malaysia at 12:21 a.m. [1421 GMT Friday] and was scheduled to arrive at it's destination, Beijing, China at 6:30 am. [2230 GMTFriday]. The jet, which was carrying 239 people (227 passengers and 12 crew), had dropped off civilian radar about one hour into it's flight at an altitude of 35,000 feet. According to officials it disappeared without transmitting a distress signal.

Now, the details of the jet's flight path indicates it departed, Kuala-Lumpar, traveled northeast over Malaysia, passed over the eastern coastline and out over an area of water where the Gulf of Thailand is located to the west and the South China Sea to the north and east. The plane's projected northeast flight path would have next taken it over Vietnam and an area of Cambodia enroute toChina, but the plane never reached the southern coast of Vietnam.

Air Traffic Control officials reported the last contact with Flight MH370. This report indicated it was over water approximately 120 nautical miles east of Kota Bharu, Malaysia. Various media reports contradict the exact time that the jet dropped off civilian radar over water, but it was approximately one hour and ten minutes into its flight at about 1:30 a.m.

Now, if the reader has been following this story closely, they must have noticed the inconsistencies of the many contradicting reports made. These inconsistent reports involved some of the events and time-stamps contained within this missing jet incident taken as a whole. Was this reckless reporting by the Malaysian officials or was it done purposely to confuse the events and timeline of the actual story? Additional information had also stated, "Vietnamese Civil Aviation Authority claimed the pilots of the plane did not check in at it's scheduled time of 17:21 GMT."

Next, whether the plane changed direction and redirected southwest while being tracked by military radars at Butterworth, Malaysia is now a conflicted point. Malaysian officials have been changing their official statements with the position of the sun in the sky. Early reports said the plane may have redirected southwest, then updated reports said the northeast bound jet did redirect southwest, but passed over Thailand, flew over Malaysia and then over the Strait of Malacca. The jet reportedly had descended 3,280 feet in altitude and was detected by Butterworth military radars at 2:40 a.m. above the region of the tiny island of Pulau Perak to the west of Malaysia.

Now, more official reports from Malaysian officials contradict the redirecting scenario of the jet with additional information lately being revealed... information only adding to the mystery! On early Thursday, March 14, 2014, an article titled, "China satellite finds 'suspected crash site' in Malaysia jet hunt," reveals this new information. It states:
Beijing (AFP)...Malaysian air force chief General Rodzali attempted to explain why the search zone had been expanded, telling a press conference that military radar detected an unidentified object early Saturday north of the Malacca Strait off the Malaysian coast. He said that reading, taken less than an hour after the plane lost contact over the South China Sea, was still being investigated and they were not able to confirm it was MH370.

Now hold the phone reader—this statement by General Rodzali confusingly reveals the radar target tracked by the Malaysian Air Force was actually, "an unidentified object." Why was this point not brought up to the press when the story first broke and the search for the jet initially began.

Again reader, why so many contradictions and inconsistencies within the events of this missing commercial aircraft? Was the public intentionally misled because "an unidentified object" was involved in the incident?

Walking and quacking like a full-on duck, there begs to have been a cover-up in the making from the onset of this incident! The article also stated that a Chinese satellite had detected debris images of "objects in a 'suspected crash sea area' in the South China Sea," according to the Chinese State Science and Technology Administration.

Contrarily; however, a follow-up article then discloses that the objects sighted in the alleged, "suspected crash sea area," could not be found at all. The article, "Malaysia: No debris at spot shown in China images," states, "KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - (AP) Planes sent Thursday to check the spot where Chinese satellite images found nothing, a Malaysia civilian chief said." A guy could get whiplash in the reportage...

Another Thursday article reported the following information. The headline reads, Malaysia widens search for missing plane," and states,

"KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - (AP) Malaysian authorities expanded their search for the missing jetliner into the Andaman Sea and beyond on Thursday after saying it could have flown for several hours after it lost contact with the ground." The article once again talks about "an unidentified object" and states, "Malaysia's air force chief said Wednesday that an unidentified object appeared on military radar records about 200 miles (320 kilometers) northwest of Panag, Malaysia, and experts are analyzing the data in an attempt to determine whether the blip is the missing plane."

The article also states, "Investigators have not ruled out any possible cause for the disappearance of the plane." How do you just throw up your hands about a missing Jumbo Jet?

At this point, the fate of the Malaysian jet is still unknown. Several countries are participating in a massive search and rescue effort as several planes, boats, ships and helicopters are scouring numerous regions for the missing jet, a jet simply vanishing into thin air. As of this writing, the jet, nor any wreckage, or bodies have been found! This is even after an expansion of the original searched territory area.

Let's change some gears! In order to understand what may be going on today ...let's review the past. In many cases, we can learn—and also learn lessons from our history!

See, throughout aviation history, military pilots, including transport and fighter pilots as well as commercial pilots, have reported UFOs and encounters with UFOs from all parts of the globe. There is the famed July 14, 1952, Nash-Fortenberry Pan American incident, where those pilots saw and encountered UFOs over Virginia.  On February 24, 1959, the famous Killian incident occurred when an American Airlines passenger plane encountered several UFOs enroute to Detroit.  Captain Peter W. Killian's plane was paced and approached by several UFOs, which were also seen and reported by other nearby passenger planes. Then there is the classic 1953 Kinross AFB case where an F-89C Scorpion jet (lately in the news) vanished during a UFO intercept attempt over Lake Superior! Yes, reader, there are the numerous fighter pilots who pursued UFOs throughout the world—and still do—to protect their Countries. Moreover, these unidentified flying objects have been well documented in history by the brave human beings trammeling those hallowed halls of air.

Project Blue Book, the Air Force intelligence group investigating and evaluating UFO sightings from 1951 until 1969, is loaded with many reports and "unexplained" evaluations involving pilot UFO encounters. Even the late Project Blue Book Chief, Captain Edward Ruppelt observed the following in his 1956 book, The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects:

Other assorted historians point out that normally 'UFOs' are peaceful, [fighter pilots] Gorman and Mantell just got too inquisitive, they just weren't ready to be observed closely. If the Air Force hadn't slapped down the security lid these writers might not have reached this conclusion. There have been other and more lurid "duels of death."

Read that again—"Lurid duels of death," reader—lurid duels of death.

This statement about UFOs was straight from the Chief of Project Blue Book himself, Captain Edward J. Ruppelt. Also note how he mentions the, "security lid" being "slapped down" by the USAF!  However; reader, it is still readily known that planes and UFOs have shared the skies with us for years and many strange things have happened as a result of our crossing their star-crossed path. One is compelled to ask: how many of those planes vanished during UFO encounters, including confrontations—be it by accidental encounters or intentional attempted intercepts?

In the First Edition of his 1955 book, The Flying Saucer Conspiracy, pioneer UFO researcher, author and former aide to Charles Lindbergh, Major Donald Keyhoe, USMC Retired, writes a chapter titled, "The Vanishing Planes." Here, he studies the disappearance of the famous incident that involved five TBM Avengers aircraft vanishing off the Florida coast on December 5, 1945 ...and the Martin Mariner search plane that subsequently vanished while looking for them!

During this era, folks, Major Keyhoe, a close friend of Charles Lindbergh, remember, was very well connected throughout both military and civilian aviation circles. Indeed Donald Keyhoe had friends in many high places, including top connections in the Pentagon. He was privy to many inside UFO reports that most would never see.

Donald Keyhoe

Yes, Keyhoe was on top of the UFO phenomenon and made everyone around him aware that he was, a true pioneer in the field. Additionally, in this regarded chapter from above, Mr. Keyhoe and an "aeronautical engineer," named Mr. Paul Redell, who first met Keyhoe around 1949, discussed some hypothetical theories involving the five TBM planes and the Mariner that vanished in 1945.  In concert with the Malaysian jet disappearance, the two men talked about the lack of any plane wreckage and how none of the crews were found, dead or alive... ...just vanished!

Donald Keyhoe stated the following about his conversation with Paul Redell:
"Those planes must have been completely destroyed," to which Redell replied, "Unless the saucers took them...If that theory is correct, an electromagnetic beam could have thrown off the compasses and also silenced the radios. The same could have happened to the Mariner."
Keyhoe responded and the following transpired:
"But to make off with all those planes!" I said. The saucer would have to be enormous."
"Well, we've had proof they use gigantic mother ships," Redell responded.

"In that Gulf of Mexico case, the one-inch blip on the scope shows the mother ship was over 1,000 feet long - probably nearer 1500 feet. Also, there may have been more than one saucer in theFlorida case. Again, I'm just temporarily assuming the capture explanation."
"It's still unbelievable," Keyhoe muttered. "I sat there, my mind half-numbed by the picture Redell had painted. Redell gave me a serious glance."
"If it's true—and I've been fighting the idea the way you're doing now—it might explain the Navy Super-Constellation's disappearance over the Atlantic in October of '54. You probably saw the story; there were 42 people aboard, some of them Navy wives and their children."
"Yes, I looked into that," I said. It occurred to me that it might have been destroyed by a saucer. It happened soon after those UFOs were flying over Virginia."

The back story here, reader, involves a Super-Constellation plane, R7V-1, in Navy service, which vanished without a trace on October 4, 1954. This plane departed Patuxent River NAS, Md. and was bound for Azores, Portugal when it vanished 350 miles from the US coast over the Atlantic Ocean with 42 Navy persons aboard. Keyhoe then writes:

"The Navy Constellation vanished exactly like the six planes from Fort Lauderdale. Radio silence - even though they had two transmitters. Not a trace of wreckage or bodies, though hundreds of planes and ships searched for days."

"I got one statement from Commander Andy Bright, head of the Navy's Aviation Section. He said they could offer no explanation."

Redell spread his hands, "They certainly wouldn't make this answer public."

"No, even if it was true. And there may be some strange explanation we haven't considered. But I believe this accounts for the blackout—even if the censors don't have the complete answer."
"Yes, you can see why they'd fight to keep it secret."

In this book, Mr. Keyhoe also reveals an incident that occurred on November 21, 1954.  A Brazilian passenger plane bound for Rio de Janeiro was cruising in the dark at 8,000 feet over the Paraiba River and was approached by several UFOs. Keyhoe states there were, "19 round machines, each more than 100 feet in diameter." It was reported by the pilot, "The saucers were flashing past and underneath my wings." During this encounter, the passengers became frantic as the UFOs flew near the plane, many of them at close range. Keyhoe also stated, "For two or three minutes, the cabin was a madhouse."

Mr. Keyhoe also reports an incident involving an American Airlines passenger plane, flying near Conowingo Dam, MD enroute to Washington, D.C. During this episode, the pilot, a Captain J.L Kidd, encountered a large UFO in 1953.  Donald Keyhoe states, "The unknown machine was coming swiftly toward them on a collision course. Instantly Captain Kidd shoved the controls forward." To avoid the UFO, the pilot had to dive his plane to avoid a collision with it. Mr. Keyhoe stated,

"The mysterious craft streaked overhead and vanished...the unknown craft had been a huge machine." This unexpected dive had thrown some passengers into the aisle and the pilot quickly radioed Washington Airport for doctors and ambulances. Keyhoe also explains, "Immediately the CAA made a check of every scheduled airliner and other cruising aircraft within 100 miles of Conowingo Dam. But not one had been near the DC-6." 

Folks, the UFO encounters with aircraft throughout recorded aviation history is absolutely staggering where most of the general public are entirely unaware of that fact! Here is another incident not widely known written by Harold T. Wilkins, author of the 1954 book, Flying Saucers on the Attack. Mr. Wilkins reported the following mysterious incident involving a British jet. He writes:

May 2, 1953: A British Comet (jet) air-liner met a mysterious disaster, immediately after it had taken off from an airdrome at Calcutta. Its speed was 500 miles an hour. Suddenly, it caught fire in the air, disintegrated, and crashed, the wreckage being strewn over an area of 5-1/2 miles. An investigator from the British ministry of Civil Aviation, Mr. J. H. Lett, said that lighting had not struck the Comet, nor had it come into collision with another plane, nor was there the slightest evidence of faulty materials, or bad workmanship. BUT HE FOUND THAT IT BROKE UP IN THE AIR, AFTER STRIKING SOME HEAVY AND UNKNOWN BODY!

Wilkins states, "Apart from any actual collision, what was this heavy and unknown body? He adds, "Who, I must be forgiven for asking again, knows, or can, at this time know?"

Do any of these plane stories from the past have anything to do with the mysterious circumstances that are still going on today? Now, fast forward to the current situation involving the missing Malaysian commercial jet Flight MH370. Interestingly enough, there are some contemporary UFO events occurring near this part of the world where our Malaysian jet, MH370 went missing.

I caution the reader that Frank and I are not here to judge the authenticity of these UFO incidents and videos, but are pointing them out to you, the reader—just to be aware. Does history repeat itself? Take a close look at these documented UFO incidents over the past few years! Judge for yourself if they are real, as well as the possibility that the Malaysian jet just may have encountered a UFO during its last flight.

It is obvious that Major Keyhoe and many of the associates within his group absolutely knew about the UFO and plane encounters occurring back in the 1940s and 1950s. Now, I ask you, did these encounters and events ever stop?

In Keyhoe's 1955 book, The Flying Saucer Conspiracy, the publisher's jacket statement reads,
"Major Keyhoe believes that this policy of censorship is sponsored by only a few individuals; men whose motive is to protect the public from possible hysteria. But he finds this censorship inimical to the Democratic way of life: man has a chance to act wisely only if informed of all of the facts. It is the policy of silence—not the 'silence group'—which Major Keyhoe deplores."

1). In 2007, a group of maneuvering UFOs was captured on video by civilians as they flew over the city of Hanoi in northern Vietnam. This video appears on youtube and is titled, "UFO Fleet,Vietnam" by Supernatural Aliens and was published on Feb. 22, 2014.

2). In May of 2008, a Reuters news story was released about a UFO that exploded off the east coast of southern Vietnam near Cambodia. This incident occurred six miles off the west coast of Vietnam near the Cambodian border in the vicinity of the island—Phu Quoc. Debris was confiscated from the debris field below the explosion. The explosion was said to be have occurred about five miles above the ground. A most interesting observation about this mysterious incident is the point that it actually occurred just north of the vicinity where Malaysian Flight MH370 passed out over the water from the Malaysian coast just before contact was lost! The article is titled: "Vietnam reports 'UFO' explosion...HANOI (Reuters)."

3). The most recent sighting with video footage occurred over the South China Sea in 2013. The publisher of the video, which was posted on YouTube, informs us that the video was taped from a commercial China Airlines plane during a night flight at an altitude of 40,000 feet. The UFO sighting was said to be taped on August 2, 2013 and published on August 10, 2013. This YouTube video is titled, "New UFO Sightings Video 2013" by Beelieve

Again, no veracity is ascribed by Feschino or myself for the referenced video, but taken together the happenstance is compelling.

Closing, Frank's asked me to reiterate a concern for the sensibilities of family members in this unspeakable potential tragedy, sensibilities affected by terrible losses to family and friends...

Remains... ...affairs adjudged above involve the highly, highly strange, affairs understandably if not acceptably trumping the fact of anyone associated with that sad jet aircraft. This would include, as a demonstration of sincerity, the non-cavalier involvement of my own family with that sad jet aircraft, eh? Involvement with a UFO, a UFO entirely without regard to provenance of same howsoever that is determined to be... ...changes everything. The reader knows that's true.


The following links seem to provide unsettling and highly strange facts surrounding the missing Malaysian Jumbo Jet... at the moment that it disappeared...

Feschino Releases Unheard Testimony


Feschino Releases Unheard Testimony of 
"Flatwoods Monster" Witness Kathleen May

Well, fellow Feschino freaks! Just when you thought you had heard everything about the "Flatwoods Monster" incident, the authority on the case, one Frank Feschino, Jr. releases some never before heard, first-hand testimony of primary witness (the late) Kathleen May.  Here's some stuff to put a decided wave in your short and curlies!

Not what May or any other witness
described to the TV station artist...
Some back-story: during his investigation into the Flatwoods incident beginning in 1991, Feschino, after a long hard slog to win their trust, worked very closely with the May family. He interviewed matriarch Mrs. May numerous times about her close encounter with the giant being come to be known as the "Flatwoods Monster."  Feschino transcribed much of her interviews into his books... but not everything! 

Now, for the first time, Frank is releasing some startling testimony from Mrs. May discussed during two particular taped interviews in West Virginia Remember this stuff's on tape folks.

Intrepid researcher Feschino reveals startlingly visceral information about the aftermath of the terrifying 1952 "Flatwoods Monster" incident involving her two boys, Freddie and Eddie, among others, and the illnesses they endured... ...suffering their whole lives as it turns out. To get the elephant out of the room I asked why he waited until now to release this information.

Feschino stated, "Alfred, it was all about respect for sensitive issues.  I was just waiting for the right time for this story to reach further out into the public, you  know?  The story needed to be taken more seriously—become better known—become better known...before more insightful, but by the same token, more personal evidences get trotted out."  He continued, "Thanks to my books, radio, TV—your awesome blogs—my research has reached out widely across the world, is very well-known, and being taken very seriously.  This is a good thing!"

"Basically?  I was awaiting the right moment for this information to be seen, and not get lost in some short-attention-span-old-news-shuffle...," Frank took a long breath, "...After my trip to Hollywood, and the interview for the documentary 701-The Movie, I knew my research and books had indeed been far-reaching!  I realized it was time."  Frank continued, "Look at it this way, I want to release this information now so people can have a real appreciation for what happens to folks when it's their blood and sacrifice that is the ink writing the primary historical page.  Heroes should be celebrated, and these people had their cross to bear for this history, and have borne that cross better than 60 years. ...It's time"

What follows now is a fast recap of the particular portion of this incident, bringing the reader up to speed regarding the aforementioned unheard testimony of Mrs. May.  During the encounter on the Fisher Farm that night September 12, 1952 which included Kathleen May, her two sons, and six other boys, she was the closest witness to the strange metallic structure nearly 12-feet tall come to be known as the "Flatwoods Monster." 

Decidedly Mechanical

The reader will remember, and as previously stated in Feschino's research and the testimony of witnesses: the monster was more mechanical than of a flesh... ...was some sort of a "hovering craft" or "encounter suit," and appeared to be a lifting device or system emitting a noxious exhaust gas through long pipes!  

That exhaust, a disgustingly odored miasma smelling of burnt sulfur, had billowed up throughout the area, remember, creating a cloying and distressing mist along the path where unsuspecting witnesses, walking smartly up the incline and so nearing the famous old oak tree where the "Monster" was located, encountered same.  The tense music is at its denouement.  Though, stop. That's not where this story goes.  See, what about that odiferous gas?

This sulfur stink is referred to also as a strong metallic smell by the first person witnesses. Previous to their encounter near the tree, Mrs. May reports to Frank, "[when] we got up there, we could smell a kind of... metallic odor ...and it looked like it was getting foggy." As Mrs. May and the boys walked up the path, they all walked through this gaseous mistiness of faux-fog, now everywhere along the path.  It immediately effected them severely. One of the boys called it a "horrible odor" stating, "It smelled like sulfur and really sort of made you sick!"

Now, at the exact moment of their encounter near the tree, Mrs. May was standing next to Gene Lemon, while her son Eddie was walking just behind her.  May's other son, Freddie, was at the wooden gate behind them all, readying to climb over it.  Mrs. May told Frank that she had an "irritated throat" and that her lungs began to suffer from inhaling the gas, "in the chest area."  She stated, "It was very penetrating. It effected me a good bit."

The other boys, suffered as well.  Neil Nunley, who was near Lemon, is heard to say, "We just ran into this mist. It wasn't any regular mist, it was a funny looking mist. Burnt you up, it did.  It burnt your eyes and throat." 

Feschino with Fred May
Freddie May told Frank, "It was very hazy in the area along the path. It was correspondingly misty along the tree area." Fred explained to Frank, "... And that nasty smell... the smell was similar to the old TV tubes burning out in the old sets from years ago. A tube would burn out, remember, and you have what we'd call that 'metallic smell.' " 

Mrs. May told Feschino the following about Gene Lemon, "He did have some irritation in his throat and nose as well as I can remember." She also told Frank that later on "Gene vomited during the night."

Also In 1952, about two weeks after the incident, two members of the Los Angeles, California based research group, "Civilian Saucer Investigation," visited Flatwoods and interviewed witnesses. 

In one of their reports they documented, "Gene was so severely ill during the night that he was in convulsions and had attacks of vomiting." They added, "After two weeks, Gene Lemon still was not able to swallow carbonated drinks." They also documented, "Soon the throats of the boys were so swollen that they could not even drink water. Examination by a local doctor showed symptoms of Mustard gas." 

The information that Frank now reveals was obtained first-hand from Mrs. May during two interviews.  It connects to the aftermath of the incident and involves her two boys who became quite sick themselves.  At the time Freddie was 11-years old and Eddie was 13. These boys got sicker than most realized and their sickness was not brought on by fright. 

Frank tells me that in January of 1953, USAF public liaison Albert Chop told researcher Donald Keyhoe the following information, "The boys' illness was brought on by their fright." he reports. Glib and reasonable sounding. 

That is a gloss, not even a reasonable supposition.  And while we're on the subject of skeptibunky argle-bargle, the sighting was not attributed to a "barn owl" as noted by skeptic Joe Nickell.  

In reference to the bad smell, Nickell states, "As to the nauseating odor, that has been variously described as a 'sulfurous smell,' 'metallic stench,' gas-like mist, or simply a 'sickening, irritating' odor...The effect on three of the youths, particularly Lemon, was to cause nausea and complaints of irritated throats." In conclusion, Nickell observes, "This element of the story may be overstated."  

Flag down!  That really is a meaningless statement... all denial and based entirely on supposition—bereft of all sense and sans all sensibility.  Nickell propounds many canted propositions about this case and others, as illogical as they are reductionist and as unscientific as they are unreasoning.   
The following is a verbatim transcription between Feschino and Mrs. Kathleen May during an early taped interview, pay special attention to what mere "fright" can do to the physicality of human beings...not:

Feschino with Kathleen May
FRANK: Did the kids have any medical problems?

MAY: Oh Yeah! A-huh. Gene vomited all night and I had to take my boys to the doctor the next morning, and their mouths, clear down to their rectums, were as raw as a piece of meat.

FRANK: Was there bleeding?

MAY: Irritated—yes, a-huh - some...

FRANK: Was that a local doctor in town?

MAY: Yes—a-huh, Sutton.

FRANK: Do you remember his name?

MAY: Hutchinson, Dr. Bernard Hutchinson.

FRANK: Did the boys ever go to a hospital?

MAY: No—but they took shots for over a week.

FRANK: Antibiotics?

MAY: A-huh!

FRANK: Did it seem to help them?

MAY: Yes, but they couldn't even go to school.

FRANK: So, they were out of school for a week?

MAY: Yes.

FRANK: After the kids were sick, were there any other effects that had come back—any sickness?

MAY: After a while, when Freddie was at school and started taking football and basketball—he got to the point where he had dark spots all over his body. The doctors gave me medicine for it, but I forget what he rubbed on it, anyway—

FRANK: It cleared up!

MAY: Cleared up, a-huh.

FRANK: Did you have any symptoms?

MAY: Well, I had a little irritated throat.

FRANK: From the smell?

MAY: Yes, it was very penetrating.

FRANK: Do you think - since you were that close to the "Braxton County Monster" [a car length] - that any of the medical problems that you have had over the years, could be attributed to that?

MAY: ...Could have been! 

The following is another transcribed section from a later taped interview between Frank and Mrs. May in Fred's presence while sitting in Mrs. May's apartment.

MAY: They [the doctors] was all uneasy about the boy's membrane—the way it [the ill effects] moved so fast and made 'em sick. He [Fred] had a sore throat and lord, for days! Eddie too, right. [looks at Fred sitting to her right, who nods yes]  I had to take them to Dr. Hutchinson. He had to give them shots. I had to take em' [the boys] everyday—for over a week.

FRANK: What were the shots for?

MAY: Infection. It was raw—from their nostrils, clear down to their throats and to their rectums.

FRANK: From inhaling the gas?

MAY: [Nods, Yes]

FRANK: It didn't seem to effect you as much—did it?

MAY: It effected me a good bit!

FRANK: It did?

MAY: Yeah—in the chest area.... in... the chest area...  

What shook down out there, people?  What stranger occurrence than we know, perhaps stranger than we can know, happened on that Indian Summer in 1952?  I would know.  It may end that Frank Feschino told me so.  If the reader wants more information please go to flatwoodsmonster.com ...Read on!

Feschino Reveals New Illustration of the 1952 "Strange Creek Monster" of Braxton County

"Strange Creek Monster"

Feschino Reveals New Illustration of the 1952 "Strange Creek Monster" of Braxton County

Last month I posted an article regarding yet another firsthand witness who had come forward to explain that he was seemingly involved in the "Flatwoods Monster" affair of September 1952. In that article, the new Braxton County witness contacted Frank Feschino, Jr. with information about his sighting occurring on his family's property in "Strange Creek" WV, during the early morning hours of September 13, 1952. The witness, a boy at the time, had described to Frank a large 8-9 foot-tall, glowing, if metallic-looking structure, which was gray/aluminum in color, and hovering up the driveway toward his home!

Yes, reader, there does seem to be a direct connection between this incident and the "Flatwoods Monster" encounter on the Fisher Farm, as well as the "Frametown Monster" incident involving the Snitowsky family occurring September 13, 1952. See, the tiny town of "Strange Creek" is located just southwest of Frametown, where the Snitowsky incident occurred later that night. Frank had called me and explained the incident after speaking to the witness that afternoon. Subsequently, I wrote the article, "Frank Feschino and the Incident at Strange Creek."

Since that last article, Feschino, a school trained illustrator remember, has been working diligently on an illustration faithfully depicting that large metallic-like structure that the "Strange Creek" witness had described to him during their conversation. For background, I will explain how all three of these so-called "Monster" incidents are connected, and were actually the same entity sighted at three different locations, Flatwoods, Frametown, and Strange Creek.

"Flatwoods Monster"

An overview of Feschino's research shows, one will recall, that the "Flatwoods Monster" was actually a large—nearly 12-feet-tall—metallic-seeming structure. By working with the actual eyewitnesses and past documentations of the case, Feschino had concluded that this structure was likely some sort of a hovering spacesuit containing a large "being" within. This "spacesuit," then—a shell—was a mode of transportation complete with a propulsion system of some type which lifted and carried the occupant across the terrain over which it traveled. The overall appearance of the structure was described by witnesses, then—and now—as looking "mechanical."

This apparatus also acted, apparently, as a protective suit for an occupant forced to leave its downed craft on the Fisher Farm in Flatwoods and move into a foreign environment. One might imagine an astronaut departing his lunar module and walking on the surface of the moon. Additionally, this metallic-like structure could have possibly protected the occupant from hostile actions taken against it. It could have, reader, been a suit of armor.

When Mrs. May and the boys encountered the "Flatwoods Monster" on the Fisher Farm at about 8:00 p.m. on September 12, 1952, the being was enclosed in the entire suit, making it the reported twelve feet. The color of the upper and lower torso areas was described as looking like the color of aluminum. Feschino concludes this spacesuit consisted of various parts described below:

1. OUTER HELMET. A black ace-of-spades shaped outer helmet that sat upon the shoulders of the upper torso area. This outer helmet also had a clear glass-like barrier located at the front of it. The entire helmet was approximately three feet high and about three feet wide at the base.
Form of "Monster"

2. INNER HELMET. Set inside the black outer helmet, was a red-colored interior helmet that had two large porthole eye openings. It was "worn" by the occupant. The neck area consisted of some sort of collar covering and this inner helmet rotated upon this collar.

3. UPPER TORSO. The upper torso of the structure was about three feet wide at the top and flared toward the waist area. Attached to the upper portion of the torso were a pair of antennae-looking devices, which were said to resemble small mechanical toy-like hands.

4. LOWER TORSO. The lower torso flared out from the waist area to the bottom area. The bottom area was said to be approximately four feet across. Set upon the lower torso were thick pipes situated vertically and equally spaced around the lower torso. They were described as being silver in color and as thick as a fireman's hose. The pipes seemed to be the exhaust outlets for the propulsion system capable of lifting the large fabricated unit.

Now, through separate documentation and other testimonies, Feschino was able to track the flight path of the "Flatwoods Monster" after it departed Flatwoods just after its encounter with Mrs. May, her two sons, and the other boys. It had reboarded its damaged craft, followed the Elk River southwest, and then flew into the secluded region of "Frametown" where it landed on James Knoll, approximately seventeen miles away. About one full day later, George and Edith Snitowsky encountered the "Frametown Monster" on the following night at about 8:00 p.m.

"Frametown Monster"

Feschino concludes that the being the Snitowskys saw and closely encountered that night, was actually the "Flatwoods Monster" with its outer helmet, inner helmet and upper torso spacesuit "parts" removed. There, the large occupant being was seen in the flesh from its head down to the waist area, yet was still encased in the lower portion of the apparatus and hovering very near to them. During this incident, the being's large head, bloated upper body, long arms and forked, three fingered hands was seen by the witnesses, terrified at the sight of it, remember, and even sickened, made physically ill by its noxious exhaust.

Presently, now, we have the recent witness who just came forward to Feschino last month explaining his encounter in Strange Creek on the early morning of September 13, 1952 at about 3:00 am. This "Strange Creek" incident does fit into the existentiality of events occurring in Braxton County during that fateful twenty-four hour period between the "Flatwoods Monster" encounter and the "Frametown Monster" encounter. This sighting occurred about seven hours after the Flatwoods encounter and about fifteen hours before the Snitowsky sighting. Moreover, Strange Creek is located just south of James Knoll in Frametown, where the craft went down after Flatwoods. This indicates that the being seemed to have departed its damaged craft after landing in Frametown and was seen next in Strange Creek around 3:00 am and minus its helmet. Here in Strange Creek, then, we actually have the second sighting of the "Flatwoods Monster," the third sighting being in Frametown, later that night, and the tall structure at last minus its helmet and chest-piece.

Here is an interesting point to note in the Strange Creek incident: when the Strange Creek witness saw Feschino's illustrations of the "Flatwoods Monster" as described by the Flatwoods witnesses, he told Frank that he definitely did not see the big helmet or anything that resembled a helmet. He also said to Frank that since it was said to be wearing a helmet in Flatwoods, it must have taken it off before he saw it in Strange Creek. Subsequently, Feschino has reasonably concluded that the being must have taken the outer helmet and inner helmet portions of the suit off after it landed in Frametown but prior to the Strange Creek sighting. Later that night, the "Monster" was seen again a short distance away by the Snitowsky's. There the upper torso appears to have been removed.

Above, seen for the first time, is the newly released black and white illustration by Frank Feschino, Jr. It depicts the "Strange Creek Monster" as seen on September 13, 1952. For more information, videos and audio about the "Flatwoods Monster" case, please go to www.FlatwoodsMonster.com

Frank Feschino And The Incident At Strange Creek!

Almost heaven, West Virginia,
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.

Well, the 2014 iteration of the New Year got off to a fast start for researcher Frank Feschino, Jr!   He received a phone call from still another witness in West Virginia who claimed, and convincingly, that he may had seen the so-called "Flatwoods Monster" in Braxton County back in September of 1952, too. Verily and meat appears to be on that bone. For Frank, it was a new first-hand witness to personally come forward and speak to him in several years. Frank called me almost immediately and explained the series of events.
He explained that this current "Monster" sighting report, according to the eyewitness, did not occur in Flatwoods at the time Mrs. May and the boys saw it on the Fisher Farm at 8:00 pm. Moreover, it did not even occur on the night of September 12, 1952!
Frank said the witness claims to have seen a tall "metallic-looking" figure in the small town of  "Strange Creek" during the early morning hours of... September 13, 1952! This was about 3:00 am EST the day after all previous days history known!
Strange Creek, where, in 1952, this witness was a boy, is a small unincorporated little town located just southwest of Frametown and Glendon along Route 4 and the Elk River in southern Braxton County.  This is near the Clay County border. This town is about 21-miles southwest of Flatwoods. 

From Flatwoods (Upper Right) To Strange Creek (Lower Left)...

Frank went on, "At first, as with any stranger or witness, I was cautious and apprehensive about him and his testimony. There are a lot of hoaxers, pranksters and skeptics out there who would try to put one over on a guy to ruin hard won reputations. I knew his name from my caller ID, which matched who he said he was, but within the first few minutes of our conversation, I bombarded him with a lot of additional questions to flesh him out." 
Feschino said, "He told me that he grew up in Strange Creek and went to elementary school in Frametown. I then questioned him about the Frametown area, nearby territories, several small landmarks in the mountains. I also mentioned some of the people from the area, past and present residents—that sort of thing. I really grilled this guy and as it turned out, he knew many of the same people I did! He actually dated one women I knew when he was young man. Additionally, he also worked for a guy I knew in Flatwoods who has since passed away, as well. This witness knew a lot of personal stuff that an outsider or stranger couldn't possibly have known! Yes, this guy seemed to be genuine and he really knew the area better than I did, Alfred." Bona Fides seemed to pan out!
Encouraged by the seeming legitimacy Frank took notes during their subsequent conversation and asked many questions about his encounter on one early morning back in September of 1952.
Now for the encounter. The witness, who was a young boy at the time of the sighting, had explained his experience to Frank, but asked him not to reveal his name. He said that his own family didn't even believe him and he had been ridiculed by his friends and classmates for decades about what he saw on that early Indian Summer morning.
The witness reported, "It was frustrating to know that I saw 'it' and no one believed me. After all of these years, they joked about it and poked fun at me! I don't want to go through that again!" Frank respected the man's wishes but asked if he could retell the story publicly without him getting mad. The witness said he didn't mind if Frank told the story as long as his name wasn't used. Frank said to me, "Our conversation lasted for nearly 2-hours and the guy was sincere to the high nines about what he said to me."
Feschino explained, "The guy was a little kid at the time of the sighting but he actually described the true likeness of the so-called "Monster." Feschino added, "It never made sense to him, because the "thing" he saw was in Strange Creek, not Flatwoods, and he saw it about seven hours after May and the boys saw the monster in Flatwoods."
What They Saw In Flatwoods

Frank added, "To complicate matters for the witness, the 'thing' he saw in Strange Creek, didn't look at all like the original drawing depicted by the We the People rendering that was, of course, drawn all wrong."
Feschino said, "To this witness, the odds were stacked up against him; the location of his sighting wasn't in Flatwoods, the time of his sighting didn't fit the timeline and the description of the huge 'thing' that he saw wasn't exactly, the same as the one seen on TV... ." Frank added, "see, nobody believed him because his sighting in Strange Creek didn't fit the pattern or report of what was publicly known at that time."

"We The People" rendering for TV...

The witness was given a copy of Frank's book by a family member, which he had read over the holiday season. After reading the book it started to make sense to him. He began to connect the dots within Braxton County like Frank did and soon realized that his terrifying encounter in Strange Creek WAS linked to the "Flatwoods Monster" incident!
Subsequently, the witness was excited about his newly discovered findings. He decided then to come forward and tell Frank about his sighting occurring on that early morning in 1952. 
Let me explain; during Feschino's exhaustive research, he used several documented sources and plotted numerous location points of the "Flatwoods Monster" craft after it departed the Fisher Farm in Flatwoods on September 12, 1952. From Flatwoods, Frank was able to establish the craft's flight path trajectory as it flew southwest over Braxton County, flew along the Elk River and eventually crashed in Frametown about 17-miles away atop of James Knob Hill.
Snitowsky Affair In Frametown...

Now reader, like most people in Braxton County during 1952, this "Strange Creek" witness was totally unaware of the George Snitowsky incident occurring in Frametown on the night of September 13, 1952. Snitowsky's story was not revealed until 1955, when it appeared in the July issue of MALE Magazine written by Paul Lieb. Upon reading this article years ago, Frank phoned and talked to George Snitowsky. He tells the entire story about George's alien encounter in his Braxton County Monster book. Frank states, "The Snitowsky incident was a lost part of the aggregate Ufology and was forgotten by most. The story was told one time in Lieb's article and only edited pieces of it appeared in print until I wrote about it later on in 2004."
Here, Feschino's research into the September 12 and 13, 1952 Braxton County UFO incidents revealed a solid timeline and tight storyline that shows how the so-called "Monsters," sighted in each of the Flatwoods and Frametown incidents, were actually the same entity. Yes, friends and neighbors; there is a connection!
After the "Flatwoods Monster" landed on James Knob Hill in Frametown on Friday night, September 12, George Snitowsky, his wife and baby, encountered the hovering "Monster" in the Frametown area on the following night - about 23-hours later. According to Feschino, during the September 13, 1952 Snitowsky encounter, the being was only partially clad in its hovering metallic-like mechanical spacesuit, the upper torso portion and helmet being removed.
Feschino explains, "Now Alfred, we have this new witness, who saw something in Strange Creek, which is only about four miles southwest of Frametown along the Elk River and only about two and a half to three miles from James Knob Hill." Frank said, "After my initial questioning and grilling, I talked to this new witness for nearly two hours and he was hugely excited about a possible three-way connection involving his encounter in Strange Creek, the James Knob crash, and the Snitowsky incident in Frametown! Feschino said, "He wanted to talk to me to see if I might have the same outlook as he did, which is a connection concerning his encounter falling into the timeline of events of those Braxton County UFO cases."
Frank then explained what occurred in Strange Creek at about 3:00 am on September 13, 1952, according to the witness. Feschino states, "I gave this witness my word that I would not disclose his name or even a partial name. He has a very unusual first name, you see."
Frank adds, "This encounter occurred on the property of this man's family, and, because he wants to remain anonymous, I even chose to leave out some of the explicit details of the family property layout because it would easily pin point the location and the name of the family in Strange Creek." Feschino then explained the incident as told to him: 
"The witness said the family house was a two story affair set far off of the road from the Elk River. There was a long driveway leading up to the house which was bordered by woods on the left side and cleared on the other. A wood fence bordered the driveway, and there was a car port at the end of the driveway near the house."
Frank adds, "The witness, a young boy at the time, said his bedroom was located on the second floor of the house and situated over the entrance of the front porch. He said the front porch was enclosed as well." Feschino continues, "The guy told me that he was suddenly awakened about 3:00 am in the morning, but does not know what stirred him out of his sleep. He quickly got out of bed, went directly to his window and looked out. To his horror, he saw a 'huge figure' he described as being 'about eight or nine feet tall' 'floating' up the driveway toward the house. He also added, the driveway was 'gravel.' "
"The startled witness told me, 'It was coming up the center of the driveway and heading to the house! It was about 40-50 feet away when I first saw it.' "
Frank asked for a description and was told, "'The overall impression of it was that it was cone-shaped and it flared out at the bottom.' He said, 'It looked like a machine - it was metallic-looking.' He also said it was, 'gray in color, like metal.' I asked him, 'what makes you think it was a machine?' He answered, 'It's like seeing a car, you know it was something that was made or manufactured, and it looked like some type of metal.' He said the upper torso area was cylindrical and fluted, 'like a garbage can, but the lower area flared out." He said the bottom, 'Had to be at least four feet across.'"
Frank said, "Alfred, the witness was very adamant in telling me, 'the thing was floating. It was floating a few inches above the ground... the driveway. It was raised over the ground and coming straight at the house.' I asked the witness, 'How did you see it so clearly at night?'" He answered, "'The front porch light was on and I could see it pretty good, but the thing was also luminous. It was glowing and had an aura of light around it.' As an adult, he explained how he had worked in the electrical field and fully understood what an aura was. I then asked the guy, were you scared and how long did you watch it?' He said, 'I was looking down on it from above the porch and I felt safe being on the second floor of the house but as it got closer to the house, I got scared.' The witness told me, 'I saw it float and move up the driveway for about 15-feet before I stepped back from the window.'"
The witness then said, "When I looked back out the window a few moments later, it was gone." When I asked where he thought it had went, he said, 'It must have moved toward the carport near the house. That's the only place it could have gone. It disappeared that fast." So, in other words, it continued up the driveway and was getting closer to the house when you stepped back away for a few moments," to which he replied 'yes.'" He also said, "It wasn't moving that fast and I would have seen it moving away from the house. The way our property was laid out, I would have seen it moving away in the other directions.' He then said, "I ran out of my room and into my parents room and yelled and woke them up. I told them what I saw and they said, 'You must be dreaming - go back to bed.'"
Frank then asked the witness if he saw the head area of the floating thing. Frank stated, "The witness said that he did not see a distinct head shape but he said the body of the 'thing' looked like my book cover illustration and interior drawings. He said that he did not see the red head and black exterior helmet as correctly portrayed in my illustrations. He said, "I would have noticed that big black ace-of-spades covering above it." The witness then offered, "Maybe the helmet was taken off at the time I saw it." The witness added, "The body of the figure was glowing and that is what I was fixed on—the aura around it. It was metal-looking." At this point, Frank told me he was impressed with the Strange Creek incident and he chatted with the witness about other points of the incident and rehashed the story, over and over again. Throughout the conversation, the guy repeatedly stated, "Thank you Frank, for writing your book and vindicating my story."
Frank agrees with the Strange Creek witness, that he had probably seen the "Flatwoods Monster" about seven hours after it's craft crashed in Frametown at James Knob the night before. Moreover, if this scenario is correct, then this indicates that the "Monster" was moving throughout the Frametown, Glendale and Strange Creek areas for nearly a full day before Snitowsky encountered it on the night of September 13, 1952. In closing, Frank told me the witness stated to him, "Frank, you nailed it—you are right on!"
Closing—a teasing buttress to a startling conjecture. The ETH just a little further up ones nose. Something highly strange, which shouldn't be there at all if you listened to the mal-informed naysayer, but that it is right where it would need to be if it was going to be there at all. From a reluctant first hand witness, reader, and fewer and fewer of those all the time, eh?  Read on!

Feschino, Baby Ariel, And Spiderman!

Steve Markes and Frank Feschino

This past Sunday, Steve Markes and Frank Feschino, Jr. joined forces once again to set up at the Daytona Comic Show in sunny Daytona Beach, Florida for a very worthy cause.
No, Steve and Frank weren't taking on over-sized super-villains and fighting ugly bad guys for truth, justice and... well, you know... These two guys, real good guys actually, were standing up to raise money for baby Ariel Anne Peregrino of Missouri. If you have not followed the story, Feschino, Markes, Alfred Lehmberg and many other friends, are working together to help out baby Ariel Anne. This is the tragic girl born with a rare brain malformation called, Polymicrogyria or "PMG." Last year, Ariel was born with a partial brain, which has causes blindness, developmental delays, seizures and breathing problems. This is to name but a few of the difficulties with which she, and her long suffering family, is faced.
On Sunday, Steve kindly donated an entire booth from his paid setup area where Frank displayed an awesome exhibit of his "Flatwoods Monster" research, investigative materials and artwork. Feschino displayed an inclusive array of his work, but his featured display consisted of the several donated items from his private Flatwoods collection which are now up for sale on Markes' Facebook page, "Tidalwave Comics and Collectibles."
Frank pointed out, "Steve is great! He gave me one of his booths at the show in order to help raise money for Ariel and to make people aware of the rare 'PMG' brain unknown by the mainstream public." He added, "I made a poster display of baby Ariel, featured it on the table and spoke to a lot of people about what we were all doing." Frank said, "The people were great and really helped out, both customers and vendors. We sold one of the lots from my "Flatwoods Monster" collection and also received some donations as well."
Also at the show was the event's Special Guest illustrator, Mr. Alex Saviuk, also a resident from the area. Mr. Saviuk is a well-known comic book illustrator who is most recognized for his work on Marvel's most heroic superhero character in the Marvel Universe, yes readers; that would be "Spider-Man." Among Saviuk's many, many comic illustration credits, is the popular "Web of Spider-Man" comic book title and the famous Sunday newspaper comic strip, "The Amazing Spider-Man." During his career, Alex also drew many of DC comics most famous superhero characters, which include, the Dark Knight, AKA Batman, the Flash, Superman, and the Green Lantern.
Frank Feschino and Mr. Alex Saviuk were no strangers to each other, They've done book signings at other central Florida comic shows with one another over the years. Frank explained to Alex that he and Steve Markes were doing a fundraising for Ariel Peregrino at the show that day. Saviuk, who is well aware of Feschino's work regarding the "Flatwoods Monster" case, was impressed with Frank and Steve's efforts to raise money for the benefit of baby Ariel over this holiday season. Now folks, this is where things get really super-cool!
Frank explained to Alex how his true to life depiction of the "Flatwoods Monster" is heavily copy-written and his illustration images of the "Monster" are not allowed to be reproduced. In other words, Feschino owns several copyrights on the actual true image of the so-called "Flatwoods Monster," and no one else is allowed to reproduce it in any way, shape or form without his written consent. This folks, means that no other illustrator has ever drawn Feschino's "Flatwoods Monster."
Frank then asked the famous web-slinger artist Mr. Saviuk, if he would draw the "Flatwoods Monster" based on his real-life image of the figure and then donate it to raise money for baby Ariel. Frank explained that he has never allowed anyone else to draw it and this would be a first! Being the gentleman that he is, Alex Saviuk kindly agreed to draw Feschino's "Flatwoods Monster" in comic book style, for the benefit of baby Ariel and to let Steve handle the sale of the drawing. Saviuk then went to work, sat in isolation and spent a good portion of the day working on the piece. He brought the "monster" to life with his masterful skills through his pencils and pens. When finished, Alex had drawn a wonderful and very tight pen and ink sketch of Feschino's "Flatwoods Monster." Feschino stated, "Saviuk is my favorite comic illustrator and it is an honor to me to have had him draw this. He is a legendary illustrator and a great guy. It's very kind of him to do this for Ariel." A reminder, readers! This collectors item piece by Alex Saviuk is now being sold through "Tidalwave Comics and Collectibles," with all proceeds of the sale going to baby Ariel and her family.

...Revealed!  Undeclared secret air war with ET!   No one argues about or reasonably contests an assertion made on the radio for over 10 years... (Thanks for playing Docca Joe!) Why?  Because it's too weird to be real and real is what it just might be... The Extraterrestrial Hypothesis so far up your nose you feel alien boot heels scuffing your chin! Very politically incorrect.  Highly strange facts uncontested by nay-sayers lo these many years.  That seems a little odd, eh?  You know, given the peculiarity of the subject matter?  Seems like the skeptibunkies would be crawling all over and beside themselves to get at Frank to shoot him down, eh? An _easy_ mark!  Just before that strutting ufological popinjay James Mosely sloughed his coil he wrote in his last very aptly titled Saucer Smear words to the effect that the war alluded to above couldn't have happened or he'd have heard about it... ...yeah, well... he was just another one of those feeling safe to dismiss the book having not read the book, eh?
