|June 1966 while looking up into the night sky around 9PM saw a green craft with red corners. Bright lights were seen on the bottom of the craft illuminating the land around us as it banked to the east over Lake Ontario. It was travelling at a high speed and appeared to be headed towards Toronto.
Craft appeared to have about 12 lights illuminating from the bottom. Craft banked to the east then disappeared over towards Toronto direction not far from Pearson Airport. No noise was heard. Several other area witnesses came around asking if we saw the UFO.
Similar craft was seen in an old UFO magazine my parents picked up for me in the USA during the summer. Craft in photo was not as clear as the one I saw with witnesses and lights on bottom were not seen, however colours were exact.
Local radio station reported it as a meteorite, not possible, but info was obtained from radio station from the Canadian Military.
Pearson Airport formerly called Malton was the former home of AVRO, which developed a flying saucer for the USAF back in the early 1960's, paid for by US military. This project did not get off the ground but it became the forerunner of the hovercraft. Also the CF 105 AVRO Arrow a nuclear aged supersonic bomber was developed earlier at this location but was destroyed on orders of the Conservative Government. AVRO later closed with many of their employees heading to NASA and had a hand in the development of the Space Shuttle.
Sighting could have been an experimental aircraft for the US military having to have a forced landing at Pearson or Downsview Military Airport in North York. Lights on bottom may have been landing lights. Craft did not appear to rotate, but as in the Stealth Fighter flew like a military jet - without the noise. There was no evicence of a sonic boom but craft did not appear to be travelling in excess of speed of sound.
Lots of projects were ongoing in plain sight of the public many of whom did not report sightings for fear ridicule.
