Bob kindly provided me with a new copy of UFO. My video copy was
is pretty sad shape.

As informative as the movie is, there are inaccuracies despite
Al Chop's involvement. Bob has taken it upon himself to dig them
out.

For my own part there were two I noted, with one being a glaring
inaccuracy; the mention of Ken Arnold radioing his sighting
ahead. Arnold's aircraft had no electrics - the engine ran on
magnetos just like the J-3 Cub. You hand propped it to get it
going.

In the movie they show an Aeronca aircraft, a high wing rather
than the real Call-Air-A2 low wing with reverse strut that he
was actually flying.
