UFO News Article:
“ ‘Fire Ball’ Dives At Pan Am Ship Flying Off Coast”

10 March 1957 
(Miami Sunday News, Florida)

The article (starts on page 1) reports on two March 1957 Airplane/UFO encounters:

Pan American Captain Matthew A. Van Winkle sighted a brilliant greenish-white unknown object at the half-way point on the flight from New York City to San Juan, Puerto Rico on the early morning of 9 March 1957. The UFO was also sighted from seven other aircraft.

On the night of 8 March 1957, Victor Hancock and Guy Miller, Tennessee Gas Transmission Co. DC-3 pilots, sighted a UFO over Houston, Texas. The UFO played cat-and-mouse with them for 10 minutes.

Quote from the article:
“ ‘I still don’t know what it was, but it knew we were following it,’ Hancock said. ‘When it wanted to it kept ahead of us easily. It would seem to stop, then when we caught up with it, it would be gone.’

Hancock said there were three large lights – ‘white and brilliant’ on the ‘thing.’

Hancock notified Ellington Air Force Base but the Air Force was unable to pick up the flying object on its radar.

Similar objects were reported sighted over Houston and San Angelo last week.”
