Cast and Characters At The MonsterQuest Shoot!

Fred May tells his story for MonsterQuest!  He was in that chair for 90 minutes recollecting the tale and answering intelligent question shot from the hip of the initial production crew!  What ended up on MQ was, of course, not the story Mr. May told to MQ, but why let the facts and a superior story impede the predilections of the corporate-media clueless and their ongoing tradition of cacking the story up like they have since 1952?

John Barker, first responding journalist! He was up there the very next day!  An excellent and intelligent first hand corrobortion, he was unused.  

Fred May holds forth to Stanton Friedman and Frank Feschino.

...Up this hill and around this bend to the left! You could have thrown a rock and hit the monster!

Feschino was in this chair telling various aspects of the Flatwoods story for 6.5 hours! At no time did he remotely allude to "monsters roaming the hills to this day."

The Tree

The Tree. Now a husk, the merest shadow of what was once its former self — a leafy Majesty soaring 50 feet into the air! Once upon a time, it's said, a hovering mechanical "Monster" appeared from behind it, just clearing a large bough 15 feet in the air, and upset a whole passel of folks, those surviving, mayhap, effected still! From the Monsterquest shoot.

A husk... a shadow. No evidence of biological infestation. No bugs. No fungus. Vines don't grow up on it. It was such for me, as it happens, over three consecutive visits — with #4 coming up September next, Lord willin' and the creek don't rise! This writer suspects Joe Nickell has never even seen it. Click the picture and look up inside the tree, reader. Looks weird to me!

A Highly Strange Braxton County Over The Years

Googled overhead view of James Knob area from 2003.  What are those strange markings in the pasture?

Photo of additional Strange markings from 1991.  Cropcircle expert Colin Andrews found them very interesting.

A time lapse exposure of a flashing UFO in the James Knob area... I understand big negatives are part of this record.

A single exposure, not a time lapse, of an "object" hovering in the area.  What the hell is that thing?!

Flatwoods, WV Map Chronology — September 12th, 1952

This is a short discussion for a map of West Virginia illustrated with a time line of cited UFO sightings.  What is so astonishing about this initiative is this: were this illustrated map to be a depiction of UFOs comprising their activities over a decade...  it would be impressively compelling enough.  It must wholly shock if a only year is depicted.  A month's depiction and it's impossibly difficult to get your head around... a day is simply inconceivable... but how about an hour and some minutes in change?!  Such was so...

According to the September 12, 1952 Project Blue Book records, the flaming UFO that flew west over the Capitol was the "well known Washington area meteor." The Akron Astronomy Club report stated this "FIREBALL" was sighted at "Approximately 7:00 P.M. E.S.T."  Noted!

This same report also stated the length of time it was sighted. The object was recorded as having a, "Duration: 5-6 seconds."  Note that, reader!

See, contrary to the Air Force's evaluations and findings of this alleged single Fireball meteor, Frank Feschino, Jr. discovered wrinkles to the "obvious otherwise."  That "duration of 5-6 seconds" was to endure quite a stretch!

For years, reader, Feschino searched for and compiled Sept. 12, 1952 UFO reports from various documented sources. Feschino worked diligently with other researchers, archivists, historians and librarians to find a wealth of information contained in obscure national and regional newspaper articles from which named Newspapers were quoting. These articles gave information about the numerous UFOs, sky objects, flying saucers, mysterious lights or so-called meteors, unquestionably seen on that day.

Feschino continued his research and also found several magazine articles containing valuable information about the mysterious UFOs of September 12, 1952.

Throughout his investigation, Feschino even spoke to first-hand UFO witnesses from around the country who had sighted UFOs that night. Furthermore, some of the most abundant UFO information Feschino found was actually contained in the heretofore unsifted civilian and military reports of the September 12, 1952 Project Blue Book files.

Feschino compiled his data and then separated all of the UFO sightings from around the country into categories by state. Paintakingly, he then plotted all of the location points of these UFO sightings and by using the reported times of the sightings and their flight path trajectories, Feschino was able to determine a series of definite patterns.

See reader, by piecing together a meticulous time-line of documented events that occurred that night, Feschino was able to discover that there were actually several different UFOs on several different flight paths, flying in various states of damage and disarray across the United States. This time-line told a very different story than the "single Fireball meteor" explanation as explained by Project Blue Book officials.

On September 12, 1952, several UFOs were sighted over nine eastern states during 21-hours of sustained UFO activity.  Down where weird rubber meets the weirder road?  Most of the ufological activity occurred in right around an hour in and around Flatwoods These sightings CANNOT be attributed to a lone Fireball meteor only "said" to have passed over Washington D.C. that night at 7:00 PM. EST. for a duration of 5-6 seconds.  Meteors don't hang in the air for almost a full day, eh?

Feschino plotted 102 locations —yellow stars on above maps— where witnesses sighted and reported different UFOs flying directly over the following eastern region states of the country":
1. Delaware
2. Maryland
3. North Carolina
4. Ohio
5. Pennsylvania
6. Tennessee
7. Virginia
8. Washington D.C.
9. West Virginia

...Additional states where UFOs were sighted on September 12, 1952:

10. California
11. Illinois
...Curiously, the Project Blue Book records did not include the sightings occurring over Delaware, Ohio, or Tennessee.

Documentation also shows that on September 12, 1952, American civilians and Military officials in those nine east states, reported UFO sightings to the following:

1. The Pentagon
2. USAF Bases
3. The Air Defense Command Headquarters located at Ent AFB, Colorado Springs, Colorado.
4. The United States Navy
5. State Police Headquarters
6. Local Police Headquarters
7. Airports
8. Civil Aeronautics Administration
9. Newspaper offices
10. Government Agencies
11. The FBI

Moreover, Feschino's documentation also shows that four of the UFOs that passed over the United States that night had displayed different characteristics than the others.

These four UFOs had pieces falling from them, were exploding, on fire, displayed sparkling showers, all while flying, erratically, at tree top level.  Quite the whirling dervish of a "meteor," eh? 

Furthermore, it was documented that a commercial airline pilot actually reported a UFO nearly clipping the wing off his passenger plane near Wheeling, WV. that night!  This "meteor" was actually one of the four damaged UFOs.

Furthermore, it is worth noting that even though these objects were flying quickly at very low levels, NOT one sonic boom was recorded anywhere that night!  See, this fact also discounts a meteor.

Though, all four of these UFOs had one major common factor.  All four of the objects made crash-landings and then took off again. Combined, these objects crash-landed a total of twelve times in two different states.

In conclusion, these four objects were heavily damaged UFOs and definitely NOT meteors. To date, NO meteoric impact pits have yet to be found in those areas.

See reader, the "well known Washington area meteor of 12 September." was actually one of the four damaged UFOs that night I repeat again for emphasis. It passed over the Capitol on a western heading at about 7:00 P.M. EST.

It continued west, flew over Virginia, passed over West Virginia, redirected south over the state and then flew over Flatwoods. Shortly after, it was sighted by a group of boys who went to investigate the landing site...

The rest is HISTORY...

Feschino With The Tuskegee Airmen


On Sunday, February 28, 2010, The African American Museum of the Arts and the Deland Area Regional Library of Florida  presented, "The Traveling Exhibit of Charles Alfred 'Chief' Anderson and The Tuskegee Airmen."

The special guests of this aviation event were two World War II Tuskegee Airmen veterans; Mustang fighter pilot, Lt. Col. Hiram Mann and tailgunner and P-51D aircraft mechanic, James Autry.

Frank Feschino, Jr. had the honor of meeting, spending some time and talking aviation history with the two Tuskegee Airmen. These are some of the photographs taken at the event.

Some of the Brave Airmen.  Colonel Mann is lowest in the frame looking the meanest!  They never lost a bomber in escort!

Going out to their Fighters!
