Mysterious Object Sighted In Skies Over North Korea

By Stan Carter

SEOUL, Monday, April 20 UPI - Four U. S. Army airmen Sunday reported seeing a small "white, rounded, delta-shaped object" flying at 60 to 80 miles per hour over Communist territory on the Korean western front.

An official intelligence report said the sighting was made north of Pork Chop and Old Baldy Hills where heavy fighting has raged the past few days.

And officers with front-line division who asked not to be identified by name told The Associated Press that other luminous objects traveling at super-sonic speeds of 800 miles per hour, had been observed in the Ole Baldy-Pork Chop area and tracked on radra - ­also wjthin the last few days
However the official G-2 report made no mention of these other in­cidents.

The release said:

"At approximately 1 p.m. today (Sunday) aerial observers in two separate planes flying routine re­connaissance missions, observed a white, rounded, delta-shaped ob­ject
'It was estimated to be 5 to 7 feet in diameter.  The  observers had no idea of its depth or thickness.

"It was traveling between 60 and 80 miles per hour in a vibrating motion. The course of flight was north-northwest to south-southwest over enemy territory."

Intelligence officers did not at­tempt to evaluate the report.

The four airmen who reported seeing the strange object were the pilots and observers of two light army planes.

One pilot asked his name be withheld from publication. The other witnesses were Lt. Julius Morgan of Lythonia, Ga., pilot; Lt. James O. Rymus of Kansas City, Mo., and Lt. Jack E. Myers of Seattle, Wash., both observers.

Flying objects have been report­ed over Japan in recent months according to official reports of the Japan Air Defense Command. They too were tracked on radar jjnd described as having vibrat­ing motion.
