The Coming of the Madness….er, Saucers

On page 126 of Fred Nadis’ account of the life of Ray Palmer, The Man From Mars: Ray Palmer’s Amazing Pulp Journey [Penguin Group, NY, 2013] the author [Nadis] writes that Kenneth Arnold, on his way to interview Harold Dahl and Fred Crisman, who were the main “characters” involved in the alleged Maury Island flying saucer tale of July 1947 and recounted in Palmer and Arnold’s 1952 book The Coming of the Saucers, saw, while flying over Oregon, what he took at first to be a flock of ducks, “but then concluded [they] were approximately twenty-five brass-colored objects maneuvering in the sky.

“They were thin, about thirty inches [sic] in diameter, flew flat and also wheeled on edge. He [Arnold] took film footage but admitted that of the twenty-five objects only two could be seen and these “only under a jeweler’s glass.”

Has anyone in the UFO community seen this footage or a photo from it?

Is it online anywhere?
