The most terrifying UFO encounter to make national headlines, gaining worldwide attention occurred in
Flatwoods, West Virginia on September 12, 1952


Frank Feschino’s account of the infamous “Flatwoods Monster” mystery will change many many peoples thinking about UFOs and Alien landings. It’s easy to be a skeptic when there’s no evidence available to support an incident. Frank’s persistent and dogged research over eighteen years has uncovered some amazing evidence that proves what happened back on September 12, 1952 not only occurred, but also actually touched off a massive nationwide cover-up by the United States Government.


It all began at a time when the Cold War with the USSR was at its peak and the USAF was at a heightened alert. Frequent military flights were deployed from a major Air Force base on a regular basis. A certain jet fighter pilot was a participant in these routine flights. This pilot’s mission on September 12, 1952, changed all that when he took off in his USAF interceptor jet never to be seen again. To this day, the jet nor wreckage of same has been found. The plane simply vanished. Now, this jet is added to the long list of mysterious accidents and vanishings that occurred when the  Air Force ordered  pilots to "shoot down" flying saucers during this era. 


Shortly after the disappearance of this jet fighter and in a seemingly unconnected incident, twelve-year-old Fred May and some of his pals were playing football on a school playground hundreds of miles away in the sleepy town of Flatwoods, West Virginia. It was dusk and as usual, things were quiet and uneventful in this rural mountain area. Things changed dramatically in the next few moments when a series of frightening events would leave Fred May and his mother and pals thunderstruck. These few moments changed the town of Flatwoods, forever…

In 1953 Chidlaw made the follow

!ing statement to researcher Robert Gardner: “We have stacks of reports of flying saucers. We take them seriously when you consider


we have lost many men and planes trying to intercept them.”
