UFO News Article:
“Report ‘Saucer’ Over Atom Plant”

5 July 1952
(United Press article (contained in the Project Blue Book files))

The whole article:
“Four Florida pilots, three of them World War II veterans, told today (5 July 1952) of seeing a ‘flying saucer’ hovering over the Hanford atomic plant at Richlands, Wash.

Capt. John Baldwin of Coral Gables, Fla., an air force pilot in the Pacific during World War II, who has 7,000 hours of air line pilot experience, said the object he and his companions saw early today was a ‘perfectly round disc, white in color and almost transparent with small vapor trails off it like the tentacles of an octopus.’

He said he was flying at about 9,000 feet and saw the object ‘just below a deck of wispy clouds about 10,000 to 15,000 feet directly above us.

All of us have been flying a number of years and we’ve seen all kinds of clouds and formations, bur none of us had ever seen anything like this before,’ Baldwin said.”

I also reported about this case (news article) on 21 August 2010.
