The mysteries behind many UFO sightings may
never be explained, but what happened over Puget Sound on June 21, 1947
is a mystery that’s getting new life in a film.It’s
a complex story with many facets, but it that can be summarized like
this: At 2 p.m., Harold Dahl was on a fishing boat salvaging logs with
his young son when he said he saw six flying discs appear above him over
One of the donut-shaped discs appeared to be in trouble and dropped
what appeared to be tons of a hot molten substance in the water and the
beach. As the story goes, the heat and debris killed his dog and burned
Days later he was visited by a mysterious “man in black,” who told
him not to talk about what he saw. He was then visited by two Air Force
investigators who were on a classified mission to see him and gather
evidence. On the investigators’ return to a California airbase, the B-25
they were piloting crashed, killing both of them and destroying
whatever evidence they were carrying. The FBI closed the case without
It’s known as the Maury Island Incident.
“They are just many unanswered questions and that makes it an
intriguing mystery and maybe a solvable mystery, we don’t know,” said
Philip Lipson, Co-director of the Northwest Museum of Legends and Lore.
Lipson and the museum’s other co-director, Charlette LaFevre have been investigating the incident for the last 10 years.
What makes the Maury Island Incident significant in UFO lore is its
timing. It happened three days before pilot Ken Arnold’s famous sighting
of “flying saucers” over Mt. Rainier.
The media called Arnold’s account of what appeared to be disc’s
skipping across sky as flying saucers and that’s where the term first
Two weeks after Dahl’s sighting came Roswell, which is arguably the
most famous claim of an alien crash landing on earth. After that, the
floodgates of UFO sightings opened wide as it seem everyone had a story
to tell. But to UFO buffs, the Maury Island Incident started it all.
“It’s not promoted like Roswell but I always say it’s the Roswell of the northwest,” LeFevre said.
Seattle’s Northwest Museum of Legend and Lore has a collection
dedicated to the incident, including a piece said to be from the B-25
that crashed new Kelso Washington on August 1.
That date also has some significance as it was the first day the Air
Force separated from the Army and became a branch of the armed services.
The crash is considered the first Air Force Crash ever.
