August Wave over Oklahoma
interesting sighting was made on Saturday afternoon, July 311, in the northwest section of Oklahoma
City, and not far from IIOUFO's2 International Headquarters.
It is hard
to top a fisherman's story, especially this one: A man was fishing at
city-owned Lake Hefner when the alarm "thar-she-blows"
was sounded. This time, however, a whale-sized flying saucer was sighted.
fisherman fell back in sheer horror as a large "saucer-shaped"
object, with a dome on top and a flat bottom, rose out of the lake. The object hovered,
momentarily, and then flew off. The fisherman was admitted to an Oklahoma
City hospital in a state of shock.

however, Mr. Loftin’s text is the earliest of the
references given below. He talks about the August wave but has a July date
for this case? –CF-
