Significant sightings Edit
William H. Smith saw a winged human form moving over Brooklyn, New York, on September 18, 1877.
In September 1880, a black man with bat’s wings was seen flying 1,000 feet over Coney Island toward New Jersey. The figure had a “cruel and determined expression.”
On April 14, 1897, B. C. Wells, the mayor of Mount Vernon, Illinois, and other citizens saw something that resembled the “body of a huge man swimming through the air with an electric light on his back.” The incident occurred during a wave of unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings throughout the midwestern United States.
On July 11, 1908, writer Vladimir K. Arsen’ev encountered what he thought was a flying man in the Sikhote Alin Mountains, Siberia. Local hunters had apparently seen it on other occasions.
On January 6, 1948, Bernice Zaikowski and a group of children in Chehalis, Washington, claimed to have seen a man flying by means of long, mechanical wings that he manipulated with instruments on his chest.
In 1952, U.S. Air Force private Sinclair Taylor saw what he thought was an enormous bird while on guard duty at Camp Okubo near Kyoto, Japan. As it hovered not far away, he saw it had the body of a man about 7 feet tall and a 7-foot wingspan. He emptied his carbine into it as it landed but couldn’t find a trace of it.
Hilda Walker and two other residents of Houston, Texas, on June 18, 1953, watched a bat-winged figure wearing a cape and bathed in a dim, gray light glide into a pecan tree at 118 East Third Street. The light faded, and the figure disappeared as a torpedo-shaped object swooped overhead.
U.S. Marine Earl Morrison was on guard duty near Da Nang, Vietnam, in the summer of 1969 when he and two other soldiers saw a naked woman with black, furry skin fly about 6–7 feet over their heads just after 1:00 a.m . It was about 5 feet high; flew by flapping black wings attached to its arms, hands, and fingers; and gave off an eerie greenish glow.
