UFOs in the daily Press:

Kites as explanation for flying discs, August 1, 1947:

The article below was published in the newspaper Amarillo Daily News, Amarillo, Texas, USA, page 5, on August 1, 1947.


Flying Disks Get Delayed Reason

CORPUS CHRISTI, July 31 (U.P.) -- Harold E. Dunn, a 56-year-old kite designer, wasn't quite sure today whether or not he had a feather in his cap or a nail in his coffin.

Dunn, who often muses over some new creation in his work, yesterday came up with the idea that he might have been responsible for the flying saucers that were reportedly spotted all over the country.

He just happened to think that about the time that the first flying disc was sighted he was testing a new silver-colord cone-shaped creation. He was so proud of the new kite that he even mailed quite a few to kite enthusiasts throughout the US.

And if Dunn and the "saucers" have any connection, there's be a lot more wide-eyed sky-gazers from now on. His factory has just turned out 1000.000 of the silver-colored kites.
