Did a UFO crash land in a rural West Virginia town in 1952? New eyewitness testimony obtained by a film production crew would seem to indicate it did. In a new documentary titled, The Flatwoods Monster: A Legacy of Fear, two of the only living witnesses to a strange, mechanical being exiting a bizarre craft will have the chance to tell their story.

The Legend of The Flatwoods Monster, West Virginia Division of Culture and HistoryThe “Flatwoods Monster incident” has become one of the most famous legends in modern memory. However, with the Pentagon now opening up about UFO investigations dating back to the 1940’s, the incident can be seen in a new light. In September of 1952 hundreds of people across the United States witnessed glowing objects streak across the skies over much of the Eastern Seaboard. One of the objects in question was seen to land on a hill near the small community of Flatwoods, West Virginia by a group of children.

The children and two adults made a journey to the top of the hill to search for the object but instead found themselves face to face with a thirteen-foot-tall mechanical monster. Later that same evening a branch of the local National Guard unit would be dispatched by Air Force officials to investigate the site of the encounter.
