With the recent release of the corrected, revised and updated edition of “The Braxton County Monster-REVISED EDITION-The Cover-Up of The Flatwood Monster Revealed”, author Frank Feschino appeared on The Kate Valentine Show, Friday October 26th, 2012 to set the record straight.
Armed with 20 years of research and documented data Frank Feschino appeared on the regularly scheduled one hour live radio broadcast of The Kate Valentine UFO Show, Friday at 1PM. However, as the show abruptly came to a close with a cliffhanger, it became apparent that due to the listeners response and the amount of material, it would be necessary to schedule a part II interview.
In Part I of the interview with Mr. Feschino, Kate dives right in discussing the air war the Air Force engaged in with 25 unidentified craft, on that frenetic night in September of 1952. Mr. Feschino stated that this occurrence was not that uncommon and that in Project Bluebook alone there were 28 unknown Bluebook cases, which involved fighter planes and UFOs between the years 1948 and 1959. Mr. Feschino was able to establish 102 sightings, of 25 crafts, with four being damaged in the air war on September 12, 1952. A key point Mr. Feschino states is that six weeks prior to the Flatwoods incident, an international news service article reported “Air Force Orders Jet Pilots To Shoot Down Flying Saucers If They Refuse To Land.” And on September 12, 1952 Mr. Feschino reports of four crafts having been damaged, leading to the now famous Braxton Monster Cover Up and the accounts told in his book.
When asked by a listener live, on-air about the difference between the initial release of the book in 2004 and the new edition and whether he thought the editor was under any pressure to change the book Mr. Feschino responded saying “The 2004 edition book had 154 documented mistakes in it” and states that he did not know that the final galley had been changed, “it was an absolute disgrace,” stated Mr. Feschino, as he explained how he decided to walk off his book tour when the unauthorized changes were brought to his attention. “It was basically butchered.”
However, since 2004 Mr. Feschino states that he has come across “ a lot of new information”
Mr. Feschino shared eyewitness accounts, witnesses he had interviewed many times over 20 years. One account that had listeners at the edge of their seats was when a man named George Snitwoski and his family encountered the 9 ft so called “monster”. Envisioning Mr. Snitowski, his wife screaming and baby on the floor of the car, with this 9 foot reptilian figure in some kind of hover craft with fork like fingers looking down at them had the listeners wanting to know more. The “monster” or “thing” had touched their car with it’s fork like fingers and burned the paint off upon contact before retreating back to it’s craft. After seeing the craft and it’s lights take off into the sky Mr. Snitowski found that the car battery was no longer dead and he was able to start his car but would not talk of this incident publicly for three years.
Just as Mr. Feschino started to describe the findings at another crash site in Sugar Creek the theme music came on signifying the end of the interview. More discussion and more details can be heard in Part II of the Frank Feschino interview which hit the airwaves on November 9, 2012, where he was joined by Alfred Lehmberg, a writer for UFO magazine. This is ufology history and one of the foremost documented incidents to date.
