If you haven't already seen it, I highly recommend the ten-part
series "The Positively True Story of Kenneth Arnold" at
saturdaynightuforia.com,

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.
