Credit to another poster on another forum for a great idea on vintage pics so I am borrowing it for this forum.
Check it out:

I've always loved vintage UFO photos. In early childhood these pictures were the closest thing to magic and mystery I can remember. Some have been debunked as hoaxes but many still live on as legitimate mysteries. Most are from the early to mid 50's and are from across the globe.

Great pics even if many have been confirmed as hoaxes or debunked in other ways. Just goes to show they were faking it even way back
just now its easy to spot in the old pics with our wonderful new technology

The only pics that are not CGI. Gotta appreciate that. A few may be dubious, but the majority are most likely real, whatever they really are.

Ah, yes! the good old days of "magic and mystery" as you mentioned. And along with some of those early images was the long buried Air Force report that supplied a validity to the phenomena. The report was entitled The Estimate of the Situation" and was completed in 1948 by top intelligent officers in the Air Force that concluded that the craft were indeed alien and not of any power of this earth.

That report was ordered burned by the top Air Force officer, Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg. His stated reason was that it lacked definite proof of that conclusion and was not, therefore, of enough substance to declare the phenomena as a security problem. And so it has been, for over half a century an official denial of the greatest event in human history.

Fascinating to see that these have "stealthy" profiles

These three look like they could be B2 bombers

I remember this one. It was photographed in Rouen in France in the 1950's. That too looks like a Stealth fighter

The main difference being that the tail fin is way taller in that early version, while the real stealth fighters have two tail fins in a V shape.

also heres an analysis:
1: controversial picture, though i have never seen an good explanation for it so for now its an UFO
2:early case of an BLURFO (ie could be anything)
3: taken by daniel fry (contactee=hoaxer)
4:lens flare (you can see the hotspost in the background)
5 very likely an hoax done using an small model train wheel, everyone that talked with the witness said he was an pranker
6: see 5
7: some say its an christmas color wheel
8: one of billy meier earliest pictures, do i need to say more?
9: see 3
10: unknow possibly real UFO or maybe an reflection
11: possibly hoax done by manually manipulating the picture
12: real UFO, witness is very reliable
13: possibly real ufo?
16: done by an shouth african contactee who said she was being contacted by an man from proxima centaury
17:real ufo
18:badly zoomed version of an picture that comes from the case number 23
19:cut-out hoax
20: either an real picture or an hoax, controversial case
21: lens flare
22: i vaguely remnber the people behind this one saying its an hoax
23: infamous case, very likely an truck mirror suspended by wires

aw, this makes me nostalgic for when i still thought this kind of thing might be true...

Former WW2 German Messerschmitt pilot and flying saucer designer - Andreas Epp (RIP)- supposedly took a picture (with his Leica R camera) of a flying saucer during WW2, while recovering from his war wound, during his travel in his car; for what I believe is the Yugoslavian countryside.

There is a dubbed English translation vid about his flying saucer photograph --- but I think it has been removed from YouTube.

This is the original German language version: Starts at 2:25 in the vid...

That's a whole lotta flying hubcaps in those pics!

Nice thread, cool pics! Several I've never seen before.

And now you don't think it's true?

!st pic is definitely legit. It's from the L.A. Times front page. The Battle of Los Angeles Feb 25th, 1942. I live right where this was taken near Fort MacArthur. They do a re- enactment every year with vintage spotlights and cannon fire. One of the biggest unexplained sightings ever.

Yes, that is one of my all time favorites. I bet the re-enactment is cool to see. Do they actually do the re-enactment the entire length of time of the actual event?

They just re-enact the sighting as the craft came over our area. They've got all the vintage equipment and vehicles out with actors dressed up in uniform. They do a great job with the cannon fire, loudspeaker narration, and sirens blaring! Really captures the panic and confusion there must have been. Lots of people who attend get dressed up in vintage clothing too, it's a pretty fun night.

If you're a UFO enthusiast and in the area it's worth checking out. The Great Los Angeles Air Raid
