Frank C. Feschino, Jr. grew up in Connecticut. He is a graduate of
prestigious Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut where he studied
illustration, commercial art and photography. For four-years, Frank was
trained by several world-famous artists including Kenneth Davies,
Rudolph Zallnger and John Massimino.
He became an exceptional painter, illustrator and photographer and
earned his Fine Arts diploma in 1981.
Feschino moved to Florida and studied film and video production at
Phillips Jr. College in Daytona Beach, Florida. He was trained by
Hollywood camera operator Rich Davis and graduated with an Associates
Degree in 1994.
As a result, Feschino honed additional communication abilities enhancing
his stunning literary and interviewing skills.
In the early 1990s, he became interested in UFOs when he visited a
relative's farm in Braxton County, West Virginia. Crop circles appeared
there overnight and UFOs were frequently sighted over the area. Feschino
documented these anomalies and then shared his research and data with
crop circle expert, Colin Andrews.
During that era, Frank C. Feschino, Jr. discovered the infamous
"Flatwoods Monster" incident of 1952. He investigated the case for
several years, thus becoming an authority on the event.
Feschino also researched the history of the military's involvement with
UFOs during the 1950s. His investigation focused on the flying saucer
flap that occurred during the summer of 1952, which included the Air
Force's flying saucer "shoot them down" orders.
The author subsequently wrote a ground-breaking book titled, "Shoot Them Down -
The Flying Saucer Air Wars of 1952." Nuclear physicist, UFO expert and
author, Stanton T. Friedman wrote the foreword and epilog in the book.
Moreover, this book also received a book jacket synopsis by Veteran
master aviator and writer, Alfred Lehmberg, United States Army officer
In West Virginia, Feschino has appeared on television talk shows,
numerous TV news broadcasts, radio talk shows and countless newspapers.
Feschino's UFO research has also been featured on numerous nationwide
and worldwide radio talk shows. His research has also been featured in
newspapers around the world as well as several paranormal magazines in
the United States, including the first-ever "Flatwoods Monster" cover
story in UFO Magazine, November 2007.
Author/Illustrator Frank C. Feschino, Jr. has been investigating the UFO
phenomena for almost 20-years and continues to do so, often working with
Stanton T. Friedman. He resides in central Florida.

Several other key witnesses involved directly with this incident that were interviewed by Feschino have since passed away during the past ten years. Although they are no longer with us, Feschino has their interviews and testimonies on video and audiotape. Frank Feschino JR holds the key to unlocking the truth and the ability to make the public aware of what actually occurred on September 12, 1952.
