Joseph F. Ware, Jr.
Was a flight test supervisor on board a Lockheed WV-2 Super Constellation when he witnessed a UFO along with five other flight crew on December 16, 1953.
Ware later recounted the UFO sighting: "During this time, it seemed to be stationary, although we did not appear to overtake it at all. My first thought was that it was a large airplane, possibly a C-124, but after looking more closely, it seemed to look more like a large object without wings with a maximum thickness in the middle tapering toward either side, I could not distinguish front or rear on the object. It seemed to be somewhat above us and to the West, over the water, possibly in the vicinity of Santa Barbara Islands."
