Kansas State, alien encounter

Among the cases that the US Air Force attributed to unidentified, there are also those in which passengers were seen in a UFO. This is what the musician William Squirez, who was working for KOAM Radio in Pittsburgh at the time, saw on August 25, 1952. Some of the details of his description are remarkably similar to what was seen around this time by a certain Susan Knight from Maryland.

Around 5: 30 a.m., Squirez was driving to work from his home in Frontenac. When he was about 10 km from Pittsburgh, he saw an object hovering in the northeast over the thicket of the forest with clearly visible windows on it. 

My hair stood on end

Squirez admitted.

He said that the object resembled two turtle shells or two large oval plates placed on top of each other. At the edges, where the halves joined, you could see a lot of small protruding outwards often located propellers 20-40 cm in diameter. The propellers spun rapidly. 

According to Squirez, the object was about 20 m long, 15 m wide and 7.5 m high, moved slightly back and forth, and then hovered over a field near the highway. It was a dull aluminum color, and several rectangular windows stretched from the top to the edge, through which a bluish light filtered in and out.

Squirez could make out some heavy traffic outside the windows, but it was hard to see, "as if the curtain was drawn, I could only see the figures behind it." To the side of these windows was another one, also rectangular, which did not interfere with the view, and you could clearly see the head and shoulders of a person sitting motionless, whose gaze was directed at the edge of the object.

I definitely saw a human being through that window

Squirez said.

He turned off the engine, got out of the car, and began to move in the direction of the object, when suddenly first there was a measured rumble, and then the object "with the sound of a flock of partridges fluttering" abruptly soared up and disappeared from sight. All that remained was the crushed grass above where he had hung.

Squirez was absolutely convinced that " the object was piloted by people, and not by some creatures from Mars." He later returned to the scene with colleagues at the radio station, and they confirmed that the grass was indeed flattened, "as if it had been blown away by the propeller of an airplane." Later, the investigation was taken up by representatives of the Air Force, who also examined the place, attributed the eyewitness testimony to the category of "good", and then mentioned it in the special report No. 4 of the project "Blue Book" (the official report of the US Air Force on UFO research).
