Very interesting. What's claimed, if you follow the link, is
that there's a photo of a fleet of silver-winged planes flying
in formation on the very day, and in the very place, that Arnold
had his sighting. These, supposedly, were early test of the B-47
bomber.

The only problem is that the first B-47 prototype wasn't flown
until December, 1947, six months after Arnold's sighting. And
only two of them were built, at that time. So there's no way a
"formation" of B-47s (to use the word in the pilot's account, in
the link) could have been flying at any time in 1947. See

John, you might have checked this yourself before posting your
impish challenge.

What's really interesting, in the page the link goes to, is how
many pilots have seen something in the sky they can't identify,
and how seriously they take these sightings.
