Quote from the article:
“The Air Force, which once laughed off flying saucer reports as products of over-ripe imaginations, today ordered its intelligence experts to study the cases of several discs reported over North Bay in the past four months.
Four airmen stationed at the North Bay base told their superiors they saw flying discs float silently over the local air station and an RCAF statement said there was no reason to doubt the statements.
All of the men were described as veterans with several years experience identifying conventional aircraft.”
