Reseña del editor
New Saucerian is honored to reprint one of the rarest Saucerian titles ever: "The Wright Field Story" by Jim Moseley. This illustrated, large-format book became so hard to find that available copies were snatched up for thousands of Earth dollars by eager collectors.
In these pages, intrepid UFO pioneer Moseley visits Wright-Patterson Air Force to get to the bottom of the saucer mystery. Were dead aliens and crashed ships from places like Roswell, New Mexico brought to Wright Field for further study? Moseley, in his own humorous way, aims to find out.
This special 2014 reprint features a handcrafted facsimile of the original interior of the book, in all of its pre-digital glory. Several photos, xeroxed letters, and drawings populate this delightful artifact from a bygone era. Publisher and collaborator Gray Barker adds an introduction.

Those words appeared in the Spring 1967 issue of Saucer News. Four years later, Moseley's book, The Wright Field Story was published.
The secret Air Force files were the Blue Book Reports 1-12, which were eventually published by NICAP in 1968. In The Wright Field Story Moseley reprints cases from Report 7 in which Air Force investigators concluded that the sightings were "unknowns".
The investigation of the crashed saucer was mentioned in two pages of Harold Wilkins' Flying saucers uncensored and not many further details are given in Moseley's book. "Miss Y" had stumbled on photos of a UFO that had been taken to Wright Patterson AFB after reportedly gliding to the ground when its magnetic power unit had failed. It was an unmanned craft. Moseley says he was impressed with her sincerity.
He also covers the case of the disappearance of Wilbur Wilkinson and Karl Hunrath, who vanished after setting up for a supposed rendezvous with a UFO. A reproduction of a report on this from the Los Angeles Mirror is included.
Moseley also describes his dealings with with the information office and Air Force press desk at the Pentagon in 1953 and of how a policy of openness concerning UFOs was reversed in the space of a couple of months. He also mentions how he came to have an earth-based theory of UFOs, how he came to consider Antarctica as a UFO base and his dealings with Blue Book Special Report 14 publisher Leon Davidson.
Overall, it's not a bad book. However, it's a bit short. Moseley doesn't cover his later years of investigation, other than describe an appearance on the Long John Nebel radio show with Gray Barker and of how Nebel was forced to drop the subject of people being "hushed up" following an important phone call he received on air.
The book has since been republished as The Astounding UFO Secrets Of James W. Moseley: Includes The Full Text Of UFO Crash Secrets At Wright Patterson Air Force Base, a lurid title, as there are no astounding secrets in this book.
