A really phenomenal and detailed account of 30+ flying saucers flying in formation over the James Connally Air Force Base (now, a public use airport) in Waco, Texas in 1954 has just now surfaced on MUFON (case 85062). The witness wanted to take a picture of the event, but as he was training to become a fighter pilot at the time, he was not able to break the line and grab a camera. Although I could not find any photos or videos of this sighting, apparently the Air Force Base was able to confirm that the UFOs were hovering at 100,000 feet and were extremely large, about 100-feet in diameter. Read the testimony:
Saw thirty three 100 foot diameter flying saucers in three formations together
I was able to find two articles from the Waco Tribune from the same year (January 1954 issue) that document a local's sighting of a flying saucer in November from the year prior, and curiously enough, a news story about flying saucer-detecting cameras being installed at "60 control towers and 15 air defense sites," which matches up nicely to the witness claims that the base "had to keep detailed record of the saucers:"
What do you think of this incredible testimony? During the 1940s and 50s, there were many documented flying saucer and UFO sightings, from Roswell to the White House UFO incident; perhaps this sighting should have joined that well-known documentation.
Or could this testimony simply be a hoax, or even an overreaction to something a bit more mundane? Though this seems unlikely, as the witness wrote into MUFON anonymously and with absolutely no fanfare... share your ideas on this story in the comments below, and/or join the discussion over on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
If you remember this mass UFO sighting in Waco from the 1950s, or remember hearing about it, please help with this case and report your experience.
