Nope The History Channel is also airing their series called UFO Hunters tonight at 10pm EST.This show premiers tonight at 10 PM. I expect it to be a bunch of hype, but we will see.
I think it is the first regular series to address the subject of UFOs exclusively.
I'm impressed so far. That is an interesting but somewhat obscure event. This was also three days BEFORE what is usually touted as the first UFO event in the modern [post WWII] US - the Kenneth Arnold siting.Six "doughnut-shaped aircraft" were spotted off the coast of Maury Island, WA one week before the reported UFO crash in Roswell, NM. Harold Dahl and his son witnessed the aircraft dancing in unknown form and one spewing white-hot fragments over the water and beach. The falling debris killed Dahl's dog. The military was informed and two Air Force intelligence officers arrived in Tacoma, conducted interviews and collected the remaining wreckage. The officers departed from McCord Field but their plane lost communication and crashed near the town of Kelso. Now our team has located the crash scene and together with an archeologist, will scour the debris field and analyze the evidence.

Roswell, once just a military base in the New Mexican desert, is known today as the site of the United States’ most high-profile and controversial UFO sighting and crash. But few Islanders know that Maury Island was home to the first alleged UFO sighting in U.S. history, and it took place weeks before two crafts fell from the sky in Roswell.
Tomorrow marks the 60th anniversary of the Maury Island Incident, as it was later dubbed in books and newspaper articles. It took place in June 1947, two years after World War II ended. The nation was abuzz with paranoia and suspicion, and it was in this atmosphere that first one, then two, then hundreds of Americans reported seeing strange, unidentifiable, usually saucer-shaped, objects whizzing through the sky.
These were the incidents that triggered UFO hysteria, which gripped the nation for decades and spawned countless movies and books. But it all started with one close encounter. One X file. It all started with Maury Island.[continued]
I went back and forth, The History Channel one had them beat hands down, but they both were disappointing.Eh, I thought it was pretty bad; way too much hype and far too little substance. It was "Ghost Hunters" quality.
Did anyone watch the SciFi channel's show?
