Kenneth Arnold & Rhoades 1947 UFO Photo's

UFO News: FACTS just the FACTS  There are several elements in the Rhoades story that will intrigue you! First we have the date of the photos (July 7th, 1947) ironically the same time frame of the Roswell UFO incident. Rhodes took his photo’s in Phoenix, AZ, where he lived. Men in Black visited Mr. Rhodes and supposedly warned him about discussing the photos they said that "would be considered and act of espionage". Air Force records indicate that the military took the matter seriously, as AF records show (INCIDENT 40, July 7, 1947, 1600 hours, Phoenix, AZ) Of course , an analysis by John A. Clinton, for the Air Force, adjudicated the photos were faked. However, William Spaulding of Ground Saucer Watch disagreed. He went on to write that the Rhodes photos were real showing a large UFO (30/35 feet in diameter), about 4000 feet from Rhodes box camera. The moving UFO had a light source it was not a hole in the middle as some saw it, it appeared manufactured, with venting holes on the back side. Kenneth Arnold reportedly said, "On June 24th when I made my observation of the nine UFO flying disks, the second one from the bottom looked just exactly like the picture that Captain Davidson drew for Arnold of the Rhodes UFO. The photos were taken from him by two members of the intelligence community. Rhodes said, and they were never returned or found. Rhoades attempting a lawsuit to retrieve them, but did not transpire. The Rhodes story and photos fascinate some and I can see why; The date of the photography, the men in black, the contrary evaluations of authenticity, the Arnold insinuation, and Rhoades credibility! credit John Fasano/ Find More UFO News Here
