Pilot Startled by Mystery Missiles

PENDLETON, ORE. (AP) -- Nine bright, saucer-like objects flying at "incredible" speed at 10,000 feet altitude were reported here yesterday by Kenneth Arnold, Boise, Idaho, pilot, who said he could not hazard a guess as to what they were.

Arnold, a United States forest service employe engaged in searching for a missing plane, said he sighted the objects Tuesday afternoon.

They were flying between Mount Rainier and Mount Adams, in Washington state, he said, and appeared to weave in and out of formation.

Arnold said he clocked them and estimated their speed at 1,200 miles an hour.
