Case File Status: HOAX
On social media, this particular photograph has been passed around in various Facebook groups and websites.
It depicts NASA engineers at Dryden, posing with an unidentified craft in the shape of a flying saucer.
The investigation on this, is very simple, and was easy to conduct.
The hoaxer who created the image, did not even bother to change the photograph identification number. On the photograph in question, you will note it says: E49-059 as a Photo Identification number.
A quick search of the NASA Dryden Photo archives, reveals to real photograph with this ID number, and the buildings, engineers, etc. are identical.
The hoaxer simply did some fancy Photoshop work – and inserted in a flying saucer to the original photograph, after deleting the actual aircraft.
