Oh, oh, saucers loose again!
Special to The Province
Kelowna -- Four persons have reported unidentified flying objects in the Kelowna area. Three of the four also reported a small satellite airship, in one case appearing from beneath the surface of Okanagan Lake.
Alfred Quemby, Kelowna Courier printer, reported an oval-shaped saucer with a dome circling over Benvoulin district on Kelowna’s southeast limits. It appeared to have a polished metal finish. When he got out of his car for a closer look, "it disappeared at an almost unbelievable speed,” he said.
Quemby said he has no opinion as to the origin of the craft and has seen them four times in recent years, usually in the district. Once, he said, he and six others saw a strange airship.
Clifford Cole, a watchman for the CPR Lake and River Service, said he saw an object hovering over Okanagan Lake.
Cole reported that another smaller craft seemed to pop to the surface of the lake, remain on the surface for a time, then return to the mother ship, which flew away.
Two teen-agers said they too had seen something.
They said they were parked on Black Mountain after dark when they saw a saucer-shaped object. The craft at first made a noise like a transport truck, but the noise dropped to a low hum.
According to the teen-agers, a diamond-shaped, small craft emerged from the big ship while they watched, circled the saucer, and went back inside lt.
