This is an interesting document of a sighting of craft in Albuquerque, NM on August 25, 1950, described as a flying wing a little larger than a B36
aircraft. It was seen by a Mr. and Mrs. Hugh R. Young who described it as flying low enough to reflect ground lights, and described it to be similar
to the B49 Flying wing except the wings did not have a taper to them and there were several lights along the trailing edge with dark stripes on the
underside. It didn’t appear to have any conventional aircraft engines and flew without making any sound. The craft flew at about 300 MPH in a
straight line and the sighting lasted about 30 seconds when it disappeared in the distance.
This document is an investigative report with several copies of the same eyewitness testimony. There is also mention of a similar sighting in Lubbock,
Texas on the same day where some photographs were taken and the report requested they be shown to the witnesses to see if they could give more
details. There weren’t any more details about the sighting in Texas in this document.
Mr. and Mrs. Young drew this picture showing the dark stripes and trailing lights.
This photograph taken in Texas is the only one in the document. It is of poor quality, but clearly shows lights in a similar pattern as the
This photograph is eerily similar to the video taken of the Phoenix lights sighting, which was described as a V-shaped craft, but much larger.
