Ufologists Stanton Friedman and Frank Feschino discussed the 'Flatwoods Monster' encounter, which took place on Sept. 12, 1952, during what they believe was the biggest UFO flap in US history. Witnesses said they saw a large oval-shaped craft set down on a hill in Flatwoods in Braxton County, WV, and when they went to investigate they were sickened by a sulfur-like smell.
An object that witnesses reported seeing near the craft became known as a 'monster' based on a sketch artist's interpretation. However, Feschino suggested the 'monster' was something encased in metal, with eye-like portals on its head. The arms depicted with claws in the sketch, actually had antenna-like appendages, according to the witness.
According to Feschino's research, the craft in Flatwoods passed by Washington DC earlier that night on its flight path, and may have been damaged by a military shootdown. There were other damaged UFOs that night as well, he said.Friedman also touched on the MJ-12 documents, and the Betty & Barney Hill case, later in the program.
