If you haven't already seen it, I highly recommend the ten-part series "The Positively True Story of Kenneth Arnold" at saturdaynightuforia.com, http://tinyurl.com/cgtlk9b which goes into great detail about this and other 'inconsistencies', including outright fabrications, in the Coming of the Saucers version of Arnold's involvement in Maury Island affair. And while I suspect most or all of these were due to Ray Palmer, I have distinct unease with Arnold's apparent complicity in their publication. Mike Listen to 'Strange Days...
