Kenneth Arnold's sighting

Kenneth Arnold sighting report in the Press:

The article below was published in the newspaper The Sunday Herald, Provo, Utah, USA, on page 2, on July 6, 1947.


BOISE, Ida., July 5 (U.P.) -- Kenneth Arnold, the man who is responsible for turning the nation's population into sky gazers, was off on another flight today over the Pacific Northwest hoping again to meet up with the "flying saucers" that are causing no end of consternation.

Boise businessman-Arnold is an objective sort of person and he hates to think that the discs are a forerunner of an atomic war in 1960 as envisioned in some of the letters he has received the last two weeks.

Arnold took off in his private plane for a brief fishing trip to Port angeles, Wash. He was accompanied by a trusted observer, Col. Paul H. Welland, Provo, Utah, an artillery officer in the recent war. And Arnold had with him ready for instant use a $150 movie camera purchased at Pendleton, Ore., just in case he again ran into the undulating formation flying discs he clocked at 1,200 miles and hour near Mount Rainier in southern Washington June 24.

Since that date, Arnold has just about been lost in the suffle of the mounting list of saucer-seers.

"I know a lot of people first thought I was cracked," he said, "but they'll have changed their minds now. There's a lot more 'crazy' people, including myself. But if they think we're crazy they should read some of my mail."
