In 1947, Kenneth Arnold, business man & private pilot, was flying his own jet around the Mount Rainer area, looking for a downed plane with 32 men on-board. As he was flying toward the Mount, a glint of light caught his eye. Arnold reported later that he saw 9 peculiar looking aircraft flying at tremendous speeds around his plane. Later on he reported to a newspaper that the objects flew, "like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water". The news reported grabbed at the phrase and dubbed the first sightings of UFOs as "flying saucers".
Look at that flying saucer there in the sky!
