I want to first corroborate the sighting posted on the monthly report index dated 3/1966. This sighting occurred in Dearborn, Michigan. I was 16 not 17 at the time, and was with the metioned gentleman. Recently our paths crossed for the first time in twenty-eight years. What I saw was oval not boomerang shaped. It had an upper section of super white fluorescent lighting separated by partitions. It was approximately 200' away and 100' above the ground when we first spotted the craft on Monroe Blvd., between Outer Drive and Carlysle, what is known as West Dearborn. It appeared to be about 100' ft. wide. Below the craft was a red glowing dome that pulsated with bright to dimmer intensity. There were no sounds emitting from the craft. My above mentioned friend was the first to notice the craft as I was the driver. The craft was hovering over a residental area near a elementary school. I pulled into the first driveway after spotting the craft and all three of us were in a mild state of shock. This craft seemed to be aware of our presence too. The craft immeadiately headed in a northwest direction with us following in amazement.

It's direction took us down Oxford Blvd., which dead-ended at Crowley Park in Dearborn, MI also. Just before the road ended, all the lights on the craft dissapeared. I then pulled into te last driveway on Oxford St. to turn around and head back to Telegraph Rd., (U.S. 24) when suddenly the craft was right over the car. At this point, I could have thrown a stone and hit it. This is where we got a good look at the red pulsating dome on the bottom. There was now static interference on the 1963 Ford Falcon AM radio we had on at the time. Now... the craft began chasing us. My above mentioned friend was sitting in the middle and put his left leg on my accelerator pedal. My other friend sitting shotgun was throwing punches into my right arm and shoulder. I had no choice but to break all the residental speed laws by about 40 miles per hour. Now we were in survival mode. With the craft over us all the way, we made it to Telegraph Rd. south where the craft stayed at our right over the line of houses and business, rather than the middle of a major highway. We then pulled in to the only restaurant open that night which was near the intersection of Van Born Rd. We managed to get the male cook and female waitress to come out and witness the event. At this point, the craft headed west. Th restaurant employees did see the craft as it was leaving the area but it was too far off for them to describe it as we did. I was a high school student at the time at a Dearborn, MI school.
