WILLIAMSPORT. Pa. (AP)—A
local newspaper reporter and an
area pilot Wednesday told a tale
of seeing a strange flying object
over Washington, D. C. Tuesday
John P. Campbell, reporter for
the Williamsport Sun-Gazette, and
Carl F. Chambers, Linden, said
they had radioed their sighting to
the control tower at the National
Airport in the capital.
The pilot of another plane flyng
in the vicinity had verified
their report of unexplainable
lights, the pair said.
Chambers said the object—dis-
cernible as a yellow-white glow—
was "too fast for any plane and
definitely not a star." They first
saw it near Charlottesville. Va.,
they said, and observed it for
most of the next hour before their
last sighting near Frederick, Md.
Chambers and Campbell, both
31, were returning here from a
flight to Danville, Va.
Chambers said the National
Airport tower told them about the
other pilot radioing a similar report
and that the tower had the
Pennsylvanians' plane on radar,
but not the object they reported
The object hovered for awhile
over a military base near Washington,
Chambers said, and also
darted around their plane.
