((NUFORC Note: We have spoken with this witness, and we consider her to be quite credible. Please see the second report from the other witness. Also, please see the illustrations from this witness, posted to the NUFORC homepage. PD))

((NUFORC Note: We now believe that the two witnesses may have observed a turbo-prop spray plane. We would like to express our special gratitude to Mr. Michael W. Hall, attorney at law, Edmonds, Washington, for his taking the time to travel to the site of the event, in order to investigate the issue. Mr. Hall travelled to the site from the Seattle area, and both witnessed, and tape recorded the sound from, a turbine-powered aerial application aircraft. Based on Mr. Hall's work, we now believe that the witnesses might have been brightly illuminated by the landing light of such an aircraft, after which it flew directly over their vehicle, as they drove along the highway.
