The Literary Rarity

Tom Towers, who played the role of Al Chop in the much under-appreciated 1956 United Artists documentary motion picture, "UFO," wore several hats in the aviation industry. Prominent amongst them was his role as aviation editor for the old Los Angeles Examiner, and Tom paid as much attention to the UFO enigma as he did to routine aviation affairs. I just posted a couple of things about him over at my UFO movie blog, and this column from the now long-defunct Examiner is one of them, courtesy of researcher Barry Greenwood.

Tom Towers passed on a few years ago, but fortunately we still have Billy Cox (see link), a real newspaper journalist who writes regularly about the UFO subject in his blog.
