UFOs in the daily Press:

The mysterious airship in New Zealand in 1909:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper The Brisbane Courier, of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, on July 31, 1909.

MYSTERIOUS AIRSHIP

A NEW ZEALAND SENSATION

WELLINGTON, July 30.

Remarkable stories are coming from the South Island regarding a mysterious light seen at night. The suggestion is that the light is shown by an airship.

In some cases it is circumstantially declared that the light appears in the centre of a black body. One observer declares that the airship is shaped like a boat, with a hat top, and was speeding at about 30 miles an hour. An airship has also been seen by about 30 people in the Oamaru district.

The most circumstantial report comes from Gore, stating that it was reported that an airship had been seen there for the last four nights, and that last night it was distinguished at 8 o'clock, passing at a great height, and travelling south, with a headlight attached.
