What we liked about Frank Scully’s allegedly hoaxed UFO book

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Copyright 2021, InterAmerica, Inc.

Behind the Flying Saucers [1950] was my first High School oral book report. (I had found the book in the school library.)

The book’s ornate details of a crashed flying saucer – three actually – provided a sheen of credibility that would be more accepted today than it was in the aftermath of the concocted allegations of fraud by some of the main characters.

The 16 alien bodies, found dead, in the primary spaceship elucidated by Scully received, in the tale, exquisite and minute post mortems: biologic measurements, examination of teeth, fingers, even genitalia, their uniforms (clothing), et cetera.

The ship’s construction and technology were examined and detailed also: the supposed propulsion system, the hull and openings, compartment sizes, metallurgical make-up, cabin accoutrements, even toilets.

Food and water (heavy) were examined, along with books and writing, plus other minutiae that offered a sheen of credibility that ufological mentality would find believable today, more so than in the questioning legalities that smothered the story almost immediately after it appeared.

My previous musings indicate that I’m not ready to dismiss Scully’s exposé out of hand just yet:

After all, crashed UFOs are the ufological grist of the day and ETs are said to be all over the place.

So, Frank Scully’s 1950 “scoop” isn’t as unbelievable as one might think, is it?
