It was June 1947 when Kenneth Arnold, a businessman and amateur pilot from Boise, reported seeing nine unidentified discs circling Mount Rainier as if each were a “saucer skipping across the water.”
It was Arnold’s account, widely replayed over the years, that helped coin the term “flying saucer.”
Now a New York-based production company for the Travel Channel is working on a reenactment of Arnold’s famous flight, which originated from the Chehalis Airport, according to The Chronicle newspaper.
The scenes will be used for the Travel Channel’s show “Monumental Mysteries.”
