From: firstname.lastname@example.org [Lawrie Williams] Date: Sun, 16 Nov 1997 03:01:47 +1000 (GMT+1000) Fwd Date: Sun, 16 Nov 1997 08:44:32 -0500 Subject: Warminister UFO - farl 1967 Warminster 1967/Ohio 1948 Warminster and it is autumn of 1967. 35 skywatchers pulled off the highway between the villages of Chittern and Shrewton and saw: ".... a huge object in a blue sky unsullied by cloud. Here was a prime example of a daytime UFO in all its magnificent might, silhouetted against an azure backcloth in the heavens. It was a sober grey in colour, resembling base gunmetal, until the sun shone on its circular structure, surmounted by a hemi- spherical dome or turret. Then it blazed with silvery brilliance, sparkled with gem-like magic. To our gaze, it was the size of a small moon.... ".... temporary absentees missed the dramatic disappearance of the slightly tilted aeroform. One moment, boldly and brazenly, it was there. The next, with no tell-tale fading of outlines, it was gone! Naturally we all concluded that it had moved off at such a prodigious rate that it had deceived our eyes....

"Gradually,the silver-white filaments were interlacing, interweaving and interlocking, spinning speedily from side to side or bobbing up and down like shuttles on a weaver's loom. It took another three minutes or so before each intricate piece was launched back into the jigsaw, resolving themselves into the apparently metallic shape of the enormous flying sorcerer....." [ Arthur Shuttlewood "The Flying Saucerers" Sphere 1976 p 60-61 ] ----------------------------------------------------------- Posted in light of the Mantell discussion and the recent sightings in Ohio &tc. Lawrie Williams_____________ 1947 September 23 After a conference between personnel of the Air Insitute of Technology, Intelligence, T-2 Office, the Chief of the Engineering Division, & parts of Division T-3, Lt.Gen. Nathan F Twining reported on September 23 1947 that these "flying discs" were "real and not visionary and ficticious." They concluded that: "There are objects probably approximating the shape of a disc.."circular or elliptical in shape, flat on bottom and domes on top..."
