Whilst doing usual browsing of UFO stuff I happened to stumble onto this case which it would seem hasn't been mentioned on ATS before. It involves an
incident in Butler, Pennsylvania in September, 1956 in which a man and his brother reportedly witnessed a "flying saucer" buzz over their yard for
Now, Mr. McGrady was interviewed and evaluated by an investigator, however he kind of botched the job by not interviewing the second witness (McGradys
Now, as you can tell a pretty thorough job was done on this case gathering all the info, personally I do believe the guy and think it's a genuine
incident. As for the craft itself, here's the original drawings:
So just to clarify, in 1956 there seems to be some silent propulsion type drone aircraft flying around the skies. What's folks views on this, do you
think secret military craft or something else? I'm slightly skeptical of the secret military plane due to it being 1956, the technology sounds a bit
too advanced but I also realize that the possibility can't be discounted. However, even if it were secret military, I would then have to ask, where
did the technology come from?
Additional note from me, this sighting reminds me of this video, which is also a genuine catch:
Further clarification, so there's been drone like flying saucers roaming (monitoring?) our skies for at least the last 56 years?
Being that im from PA, not to very far from there, and having seen many strange things in the area i look forward to checking out the links. Thank
you. Going over some of the information i wanted to add that i too doubt the secret military aircraft possibility though i do also admit its possible.
I have been trying to make a connection to someting that has since been unclassified that this thing could have been or led to. Im not seeing it. If
nothing else atleast some of the tech would have translated over to what we have today. I know there could be some small similaritys but nothing i
feel safe saying came from such a thing. Lets see what the experts around here say.

Very cool. I live only about 45 minutes from Butler, so this was particularly interesting to me. It reminded me of a report I read not to long ago
from 1968 in Saskatchewan in which a smallish (though not quite this small) domed disc cruised around a farmstead, seeming to "explore" various parts
of the property. The case also featured a diagram of the object's meanderings throughout the farm. Thanks for posting this!

Another smaller disc-shaped UFO, about two weeks after the Redlands incident, reportedly cruised around a farm in Saskatchewan for 20 minutes at at
altitude of about 30 feet, at one point coming within three feet or so of the ground.
This object, seen very clearly and distinctly at close range, consisted of a base approximately eight feet wide appearing like two saucers placed
edge-to-edge, surmounted by a dome about four feet wide. A series of ports, round on top, extended straight down to the base of the dome. Atop the
dome was a smaller structure, above which was an antenna-like superstructure topped with a small sphere.
Here's a diagram of the object's path over the property:
Just a single witness. Physiological effects were reported.
Thanks for that story. I really enjoyed reading it.
I too think it's a stretch that the object would be anything man-made. Like another poster pointed out, if it were a secret military craft, why on
earth would they be flying it in broad daylight on a residential property? Not to mention that fact that it's behavior at least suggests that it was
studying something, which doesn't make much sense if its origins were terrestrial.
Thanks for the positive feedback folks and glad you enjoyed the case
There must be so many cases like this over the years than have went unreported, I think that if the true number was really known then it would really
put the whole UFO question into true perspective ie. That there are advanced craft using our airspace and they probably have been doing so for way
longer than any of our military craft.
I'm not sure what that means but there is a meaning in there somewhere.
