Man Sees Flying Saucer While Squirrel Hunting in 1947

Date of Sighting: July, 1947 (Exact Date Unknown)
Time of Sighting: Around Noon
Date Sighting Reported: February 24, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 10 to 15 Seconds
Location of Sighting: Walcott, Arkansas (NE Arkansas About 20 MI N. of Jonesboro)
Latitude: 36.04 Degrees North
Longitude: 90.67 Degress West
Number of Witnesses: Two
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: One
Weather: Clear Skies

Description: Listen to Taped Interview With Witness (MP3)
The witness recounted his story to another party who contacted UFOs Northwest regarding the sighting. Subsequently we called him and taped a short interview. The witness said that he saw a silver disk object fly towards the west at a rapid rate on a day when he was squirrel hunting with his father. He didn't recall the exact date, but knew that it was in July of 1947. He later thought that it might have been the same disk that crashed in Roswell after he heard the Roswell story. He was 10 years old at the time of the sighting.

Comments: Certainly there were many daytime sightings of flying silver disk objects in July and August of 1947. The witness seems credible and vividly recalls the sighting. His conclusion that the object was the same disk that crashed in Roswell is quite unlikely, but his sighting is quite believable.
