May 21, 1953; Prescott, Arizona
Eight disc-like objects were observed maneuvering in the sky for an hour or so beginning at around 10 AM. There were three observers, Bill Beers, a pilot, Ray Temple, and O.Ed Olson. Two of the discs were stationary, while the other six discs participated in maneuvers not unlike a dog-fight. They said the six swooped around in formation, "peeled off ", and shot directly up and down in a maneuver that could not be duplicated by a plane. When they moved, they varied from very slow to speeds faster that a jet plane, the observers said. (Dan Wilson, UFOE, V}
