Just before noon Chief Petty Officer Charles Lewis, 36, saw a disk shaped UFO come streaking across the sky and buzz a high flying B-36. Lewis first saw the UFO coming in from the north, lower than the B-36, then he saw it pull up to the big bomber as it got closer.
It hovered under the B-36 for an instant, then it went speeding off and disappeared. When the press inquired about the incident, Captain M.A. Nation, commander of the air station, vouched for his chief and added that the base tower operators had seen and reported a UFO to him about ten days before.
