We Were Working In A Corn Field

We Were Working In A Corn Field

Date: July 15, 1947

Location: Clintwood, VA

My Dad and I were working in our corn field in Clintwood, Dickerson County, VA.

Around 3:00 p.m. we looked up to see a cylinder shaped UFO crossing a clear blue sky at a high rate of speed.

The altitude was unknown but, it was close enough to get a very clear view of the object with a long trail of orange fire immediately behind it.

The object was travelling from northeast to southwest.

I can not remember any noise coming from the object.

My back ground, I was a antenna & cable specialist in the USAF from 1956 to 1960.

I spent 30 months working at Cape Canaveral from 1958 to 1960.

I know from my work at the Cape that the U.S. had no rockets of this type during that period, as I was accustomed to seeing them explode on the launch pads almost weekly while trying to get them launched.

I can still picture this sighting in my mind as clear as if it were yesterday.

I have never told of this sighting to anyone except to my wife and son during the last 51 years.

I wanted to get this sighting recorded while I am still living.

I am presently 72 years old and in good health.
