Go Back Report # 318


August Wave over Oklahoma

       Another 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.

       The 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.

Note 1: I have selected the date of 08-03-1965 as it is the most frequently used, 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-
