Papyrus Boat Men See UFO - June 14, 1970

CLEARWATER (Florida), Saturday. - A radio message from explorer Thor Heyerdahl's papyrus boat Ra-2 says that crewmen have sighted an unidentified flying object on their voyage across the Atlantic Ocean toward Mexico.

The message said the object moved across the horizon for several minutes and disappeared in a bright orange flash.

The North American Air Defence Command doubted that the U.F.O. could have been connected with any space shot. An officer suggested, "It might have been a meteor."

The message from the boat said it was making good headway.

The voyage started from the Moroccan port of Safi.

Heyerdahl is trying to prove that the ancient Egyptians could have used papyrus boats to reach the Western Hemisphere centuries before Columbus landed. -A.A.P
