“Veteran Pilot Quit When
Flying Ceased To Be Fun”

13 August 1961
(Daytona Beach Morning Journal, Florida)

The article reports on the career of U.S. military/airline pilot Robert Lee Williamson:

Quote from the article:
“Enroute from San Antonio to Houston April 25, 1950, on a beautifully clear day, an object was pointed out to Williamson by his copilot.

As Williamson described it: ‘It was perfectly round and silvery white like a full moon risen in the daytime. It also had the uneven and pocked look of the Moon on the circumference.

‘It was traveling at a terrific rate of speed from northwest to southwest. I turned the ship so passengers on both sides of the ship could see it, and they did.

‘Shortly after it disappeared, it came back at the same speed, going in the opposite direction.’

Williamson landed amid the clamor of the press from both Texas cities. He refused to comment on the incident.”

NOTE: The newspaper date is 13 August 1961.
