UFO News Article: “Another Flying Saucer Report In California”

21 June 1950
(The Dispatch, Lexington, North Carolina)
Quote from the article:
“The Oakland Tribune said a ‘disc shaped object’ roaring at an estimated speed of 1,000 to 1,500 miles an hour made five passes near Hamilton Air Force Base early today (21 June 1950).
The newspaper quoted three air force non-commissioned officers (Corporal Roger G. Pryor, and the Staff Sergeants Ellis Lorimer and Virgil Cappuro) who said the ‘flying saucer,’ shooting blue flame and with a roar like thunder, dived near a beacon just north of the field.
Hamilton field is 25 miles north of San Francisco.

The Tribune said the airmen described the object as circular, thick in the center and tapering to the sides. They used binoculars in following its course.

The men said the disc was accompanied by a roar like thunder and the blue flame looked like an acetylene torch. They described its approach altitude at between 2,000 and 5,000 feet.”
