    GO TO LINK ABOVE AND SCROLL DOWN TO UFO SIGHTINGS 1897


    "and latched onto the eyewitness accounts by scores of Americans a century earlier of airships in the night several years before Wilbur and Orville Wright launched their flier off a windy hill in Kitty Hawk, N.C.

    Busby said he dug through numerous Dallas Morning News accounts of the era for clues to get him started. Six years of research later, he came out with Solving the 1897 Airship Mystery. Released in February by Pelican Publishing Co. of Gretna, La., the book sets out to explain the odd series of reports of unidentified flying objects from people around the country, including Texas.

    Newspapers of 1897 speculated that the mysterious airships were evidence of life from other planets or even beings from the hollow center of the earth. Preachers said the blinking lights and darting objects were signs of the occult and supernatural mischief. "
