3:00 p.m. (1500 hours). 1st Lt. Alexander Kokolonis, USAFR, while flying in a USAF C-47 at 6000 feet altitude observed out of the navigator's window three disc-like objects two miles to the left. The objects were approximately 300 to 400 feet in size, silvery-gold in color, and traveling at well over 500 m.p.h.  The objects were in sight approximately 10-15 seconds. Approximately 10 seconds later, Kokolonis observed two more similar objects approximately 2 1/2 miles to the left and he alerted M/Sgt Ernest Davis, Jr.who also observed the two objects.
