From 1896 to 1897 (six or seven years before the Wright Brothers' first flight), numerous sightings of a cigar-shaped airship were reported across the United States. One of these accounts was reported in the April 19, 1897, edition of the Dallas Morning News. The UFO is said to have hit a windmill on the property of a Judge J.S. Proctor two days earlier resulting in it's crash. The pilot (who was described as "not of this world"), did not survive the crash, and was buried at a nearby cemetery.
