UFOs in the daily Press:

Nenneth Arnold's sighting in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper The Arizona Daily Citizen, Tucson, Arizona, USA, on June 28, 1947.

Flying Disc Tale Stands

BOISE, IDA., June 28. (U.P.) -- Kenneth Arnold, businessman-pilot who made the headlines with his story of sighting strange disk-like flying missiles in southern Washington, was back in his home town of Boise Saturday -- and his story hasn't changed a bit.

"I saw what I saw," he said, "No one can change my mind.

"I'll match my judgment, position, and everything on what I saw with my own eyes. I never suffered from snow-blindness, spots before my eyes, or hallucinations. Physically, I'm 100 percent. I'll submit to any kind of test. I only reported what any pilot would report. I certainly have nothing to gain in a business way with all this hullaballoo."

Arnold resides on a ranch near here. He uses a hayfield for an airport. He sells fire-control equipment.

Arnold said he saw strange "flying saucers" - nine of them - near Mt. Rainier while flying to Yakima, Wash., this week.

He said he is more concerned with the fact that neither the FBI nor the Army appears interested in his story.

"If I were running the country," he said, "and someone reported something unusual, I'd certainly want to know more about it."
