  Actually, the first "Flying Saucers" were not Disk shaped at all, they were sort of Boomerang shaped kind of like our B-2 Spirit stealth bomber "flying wing."

  Back in 1947, even before the "Saucer" Incident at Roswell, NM, pilot Kenneth Arnold who was helping in a search for a downed Marine C-46 aircraft had a sighting of 9 Boomerang {my term} shaped craft near Mount Rainier in Washington State.  It was really two (2) groups of a lead formation of 4 Boomerang craft and a second formation of 5 of these Boomerang craft following.

  As Kenneth Arnold put it to a newsman in Pendleton, Oregon, "...they flew like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water."  And the UFO (Unidentified Flying Objects) Boomerang craft became "Flying Saucers" and the rest is, as we say, History.

  Here is the Kenneth Arnold web site where you can read his First Hand Eyewitness reports for yourself:


  Back on January 9th, 2000CE I made the 29th of 33 entries into my Journal of Chronology of Incidents concerning the Memphis/Mid-South UFO Flap of 1999 - 2000:

29. 01/09/00 - 2050 {8:50pm}: Parallel formation of 3 florescent white boomerang craft flew across center of property from N.E. to S.W.; around 10 - 15 seconds horizon-to-horizon; maneuvering like birds; with luminous white field surrounding each craft; seen from W. end of Pad L.


  Keep in mind as you read this I spent 3 years in a military Redeye Missile Air Defense unit as a trained aircraft observer, missile gunner and Team Chief.  Then I spent another 8.5 years in Air Traffic Control units at various Air Stations around the world.  So there is no getting around my not knowing that what I witnessed during that six (6) month UFO Flap were indeed, by physical flight characteristics alone, Unidentified Flying Objects.

  Over a half-century since Kenneth Arnold's Historical "Flying Saucer" report, and I thought you'd like to know the Boomerang craft are still flying in our Air Space.
