UFO News Article:
“Arabs Report First UFO In Kuwait”,

14 November 1978 (Schenectady Gazette, New York)

A series of UFO sightings occurred in Kuwait in November 1978, according to a NICAP article. All the UFO sightings occurred in the oil fields of the state-owned Kuwait Oil Company, the major oil producing company in Kuwait.

Quote from the article:
“The first-ever flying saucer in oil-rich Kuwait came without sound, was as big as a jumbo jet, cylindrical, with a huge dome and a flashing red light. After seven minutes in a Kuwaiti oil field, it took off without a trace.

That is the testimony of seven Kuwait Oil Company technicians, including one American, who said they saw it.

If so, declared Kuwaiti Security Chief Brig. Mohammed al Hammad, it would be a first for the Arab state.

The mysterious object reportedly landed Friday about 90 miles from the capital at Umm Alaish, causing temporary disruption of telecommunications and the operations of an oil pumping station about 250 yards from the landing site.”

The UFO incident occurred on 10 November 1978, according to this newspaper article:,4370366
