UFO's in a John Wayne Movie?

Yeah, well, anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge fan of the John Ford and John Wayne "Cavalry" movies (Fort Apache, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and Rio Grande).

And, yes, maybe a little of my enjoyment of them is due to the fact my dad was a horse cavalry officer at the start of WWII, before he converted to the Air Corps. The man could flat out ride a horse.*

I own all three movies but was lulled into watching Rio Grande on cable this afternoon when I should have been doing a hundred other things. There are a couple of quotes from the movie I like, so I thought I'd see if they are on the web. And I got distracted, naturally, a site that claims to have solved the question of whether a UFO was accidentally filmed during the making of Rio Grande.

*I remember discussing with him my need to qualify with a pistol at the range. He suggested that his qualification was harder, since he had qualify by shooting targets while on horseback at a gallop.
