'Flying Disks' Could Be Just Jet Airplanes

WHITE SANDS (N.M.) June 27 (AP) -- Lt. Col. Harold R. Turner says "flying disks" reported seen in several western areas may have been jet airplanes.

The White Sands proving ground commandant said that jet airplanes have circular exhaust pipes and that these, when heated, might give an illusion of disks.

The area over which the "flying saucers" were reported seen widened to Southwestern New Mexico today.

Dr. R. F. Sensenbaugher, Silver City dentist, said he and members of his family saw a disk about half the size of a full moon sail out of the northern sky on Wednesday and disappear on the southern horizon in a few seconds.

First reports of such objects came from Pendleton, Ore., when Kenneth Arnold, Boise (Ida.) businessman, reported seeing nine of them weaving across the sky. Similar reports came from Oklahoma and Idaho.
