The Socorro Flying Saucer - Photo/Model
Now this is interesting: one of the people I met at the Ohio MUFON gig this past weekend was one of MUFON Ohio's investigators, Rob Mercer.
Rob has acquired a massive collection (and I do mean massive) of ORIGINAL Air Force Project Blue Book files and had them on display at the conference.
Rob very generously gave me a photo from the collection.
It clearly shows a model display of the famous Socorro, New Mexico UFO landing case of 1964 - complete with models of the UFO, 2 small aliens, and police officer Lonnie Zamora hauling ass away from the UFO and his car.
Does anyone have any idea if the model was made by the Air Force, or was it for a UFO convention display (or similar)?
Maybe the Air Force thought it was a cool display and decided to photograph it for their files?
Anyone got answers?
My guess is a display created for a UFO gig or a UFO museum, but even so, the background suggests it must have been a significantly big display.
