UIP’s Top 10 Vintage UFOs

U.I.P’s Top 10 Vintage UFOs



Many of us ufologists scour the skies with camera in hand waiting for that great shot. Even in the past some people got very lucky by inadvertently capturing a UFO, and cameras were not that great back then!

Let’s have a look at some of them:


1951 – California – Guy B. Marquand, Jr. took this picture on a mountain road near Riverside, California, on November 23, 1951. He said the object above the skyline was a “flying saucer.”


January 1951 Location: Gungal district, near Denman, NSW, Australia

Weeks after this picture was taken, a passing prospector, Graeme Stout, learnt from Aborigines that a “huge saucer” airship had descended upon six Aborigines camping beside a creek in the area. “The big ship” descended upon the group while they were sitting at their campfire having dinner and sucked them all up through a big hole underneath it, it then flew away with them. Apparently they were never seen again.


The story began in April 1929 when Edward Pline intended to take a picture of a sawmil near his house.

When he was about to take the picture, he suddenly heard a roaring sound followed by the appearance of a large round object moving.
According to Edward’s son, Hetty Plane, none of sawmill workers saw the UFO in the photo, but they all heard the noise and felt the ground shake intensely.


The picture taken at over 6000 feet at Mount Washington, New Hampshire, was mentioned as one of the oldest photos of a UFO in history. It should be noted the photo was taken using a stereo camera which is extremely difficult to manipulate. The stereo camera is a camera with two or more lenses with a separate image sensors or film frames for each lens.
Airplanes weren’t invented yet because the Wright Brothers flew the first engined aircraft in 1903
Due to its validity; this photo was successfully sold at very high price on Ebay in 2002 for more than IDR 5 billion. The picture was bought by Samuel M. Sherman, the president of International Pictures Corp.


Young Japanese student Masujiro Kiryu was going through his father’s scrapbook of photographs from the China Campaign, just before World War II, he discovered a strange cone-shaped object in the sky above a Tsientsien Street. A number of people in the street are looking up and two are pointing up at the object. A sidewalk photographer snapped a picture of the strange machine and his father bought it from the street vendor for a souvenir of the place.


A man named George Sutton was probably one of the luckiest man on earth, because he had his picture taken with an UFO in May 1932 in St. Paris, Ohio.
An object like a flying saucer appeared suddenly in the sky. Many thought this mysterious object was a street light. But the theory was unproven because there was no light or power pole seen in the picture.
The owner of this photo also stated that there were no electric street lights along this path in 1932. Finally, none could explain a dark object seen on the upper left side of the photo. We could exactly know that the picture was taken in 1932 by seeing the car license plate in this picture.


On May 11, 1950 in McMinnville, Oregon, Evelyn Trent saw a metallic disc-shaped object heading in her direction while walking back from feeding her livestock. She yelled and called for her husband Paul, who was in the house at that time. They were able to shoot 2 pictures of the strange object. This picture is one of the most famous one!


1927 – Oregon. Taken in Cave Junction, Oregon. There is some question as to whether the photo was taken in ’26 or ’27, but nonetheless, if this is an authentic photograph it is incredible. Reportedly snapped by a volunteer fireman.


Washington D. C. October 29th 1942. This was taken above Washington, D.C. An object at the very right of the frame was initially thought to represent a high-wing monoplane flying down and right from the upper left-hand corner. It appears to be too fast for the shutter, its configuration is more disk-like and it is followed by an exceptionally long dark streak (this extends back and upwards to the top of the frame) that is normally associated with jet aircraft.

And now for “La crème de la crème”


1942 – Los Angeles, California. Only a few months after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, on the 25th of February 1942 at 02:25 AM, alarm sirens installed in the event of another invasion began. Unknown flying objects are seen and announced in the sky of the city. A blackout is declared and the anxious, terrified inhabitants follow the instructions by turning all their lights off.At 03:16 AM, anti-aircraft guns open fire on the unidentified flying objects coming from the ocean, and projector beams are searching the sky. Witnesses observe small objects flying at high altitude, of red or silver-plated colour, moving in formation at high speed, and untouched by the AAA salvos.
This large object was hit by many AAA projectiles, according to the reports. The anti-aircraft defence continued to shoot at UFOs without results.
This is one of the most famous UFO photographs ever taken.

U.I.P Summary: So there you have it, very old photos that were taken mostly inadvertently clearly showing UFOs.

There are many more available out there but we couldn’t fit them all in!

Also, the great thing is: Photoshop didn’t exist back then and all these pictures are originals, but don’t worry guys: You will still get people telling you that UFOs don’t exist, even if they landed in their back gardens!
