Confirmation of 1974 report 34 years later.

I just wanted to confirm this siting I found in your data base.


It was a clear sunny afternoon and I was at Fairchild AFB. As I was rounding the corner of the supply building I noticed a cigar shaped craft with a flame about twice as long as the craft. It was approximately 10 miles to the south and traveling north-northwest at about the same speed as an airliner, which I thought it was except for the single flame from the back, and the were no discernible wings or tail.

As I watched it, the flame shortend up, the craft turned abruptly due east and shot off at an incredible speed.

I was 20 at the time and there were no dugs or alcohol involved.


Date of event may be approximate, although the witness does not indicate that fact. PD
