Fast-Flying Discs In Sky Also Seen By Rail Engineer

JOLIET, Ill., June 27. -- (AP) -- A railroad engineer reported today he had seen a group of fast flying discs in the sky near here Tuesday -- the same day as an Idaho businessman reported having sighted a similar phenomenon over western Washington.

Charles Kastl, of Joliet, an engineer from the Elgin, Joliet and Eastern Railroad for 38 years, said he saw the discs about 1:50 p.m. in Central standard Time, Tuesday, while he was driving to work.

"There were about nine of them in a formation -- flat circular objects - going faster than any airplanes I ever saw, Kastl said. "They appeared to be very high flying south and weaving slightly in flight, and every now and then one would reflect the sunlight in a brilliant flash.

"I got the impression that they were somehow being towed although I could see nothing ahead of them. They were in sight about 25 seconds and then a building obstructed my view."

Kenneth Arnold, Boise, Idaho, reported seeing a similar formation at 10,000-foot altitude over the Cascade Mountains in western Washington, Tuesday afternoon.
