4 Pilots Report
Over Dallas Area
DALLAS, May 18 (AP) A Marine
Reserve pilot said today he and
three other jet pilots lost a race
over Dallas Friday with 16 objects
they could only describe as flying
Maj. Charles Scarborough, an
attorney, said the objects he and
three other flyers sighted "glowed
like a light."
Scarborough said he and Capt.
Charles Stanton were flying north
at 15,000 feet about noon Friday
toward Lake Dallas. Major E. C.
White of Amarillo and Capt. R. L.
Jorgenson were flying at 42,000
Scarborough spotted the objects
to the side and above him and
Jorgenson could see them below
him from 42,000 feet. The officers
brought their S9F7 jets into forma-
tion in an effort to box the objects
but were outrun.
