2 mistakes in The Flatwoods Monster

(1 vote)

The Flatwoods Monster - S1-E2

Factual error: Air Force personnel are retrieving supposedly alien debris from a forest. They are wearing dress blues, ties and all. This would never happen. They should be wearing what were then called "fatigues", essentially a precursor of the BDUs in use today. (00:16:00)


The Flatwoods Monster - S1-E2

Other mistake: The West Virginia News publishes a headline about the Flatwood Monster dated October 18, 1952. The incident took place on September 12, which was 36 days before. It does not make sense that a newspaper would print a headline story 36 days after it happened. (00:25:20)


Hopkinsville - S2-E4

Trivia: If you look closely, that Bourbon that Captain Quinn is drinking is called "Ruppelt Bourbon", a nod to the real-life Captain Ed Ruppelt, the first Director of Project Blue Book, and who the character of Captain Quinn is partially based. Thanks to David O'Leary for the information. (00:18:20)
