UFO News Article:
“Mysterious Airship.

15 May 1909
(Cardiff Times and South Wales Weekly News, UK)


The whole article:
“Residents of some parts of East Anglia are keenly excited just now about a mysterious airship which has been seen hovering over the district in the early hours of the morning, with a searchlight. Nobody appears to be able to throw any light on the ownership of the vessel, or the purpose of these after-midnight ascents, and, of course—in the absence of definite information—people are saying it must be a party of Germans spying out the land.

The object was first seen a few weeks ago by a Peterborough policeman on duty late at night, and also by several railwaymen who were on night duty at March. A few days later it was seen at Ely.

All are agreed that the object is oblong in shape, and it is alleged to carry a searchlight. Several of those who saw it declare that it made a noise like a motor-car, and travelled at a great pace.

During the movement of troops in Gyppeswyk (Gippeswyk) Park, Ipswich, the other night, it was seen frequently. Only one person, a farmer, has seen this mysterious object in the sky during the daytime. The first reports were received with incredulity, but the fact that the object has been seen in several parts of North Cambs and the surrounding district at different times has encouraged the belief that some mysterious airship is patrolling East Anglia during the hours between sunset and sunrise. Considerable excitement prevails, and a keen watch is being kept.”

“Taped Interview, Officer Bertrand, Exeter Case
Sept. 3, 1965”

“September 3, 1965; Exeter, New Hampshire (BBU 9890)
1:30 A.M. While hitchhiking home in the early hours, teenager Norman Muscarello was terrorized by a large object with four or five bright red lights that approached from nearby woods and hovered over a field near the road. Horses spooked. He went to the Exeter police station, pale and shaken, and reported the incident. Officer Eugene Bertrand drove him back to the field to investigate. About an hour earlier Bertrand had come across a woman parked on Route 101. ‘She was real upset,’ he said, ‘and told me that a red glowing object had chased her.’ When he was called to investigate Muscarello’s report, the earlier incident caused him to pay attention. At first Bertrand and Muscarello saw nothing, but when Bertrand flashed a light around the field, a huge dark object with red flashing lights rose up over the trees, moving back and forth, tilted, and came toward them.”
