Fighter Pilot Encounters UFO Object During Flight (1948)

Fighter Pilot Battles With Mystery Enemy

FARGO, N.D. Oct. 3 – A National Guard fighter pilot today told a story of a 30-minute encounter with a mysterious flying object over this city in the darkness-and his account was supported by two control tower operators and another flier.

In a signed statement for Air Force intelligence, the pilot Lt. George Gorman of the 178th Fighter Squadron, North Dakota Air National Guard, claimed he chased and did aerial maneuvers last night with a lighter, disc-like object which outran and outmaneuvered him.

Watching him and the object with binoculars were Lloyd Jenson and H. E. Johnson, both of Fargo, control tower operators at Hector airport here.
