... spotted two disc-shaped UFOs 'taking off' from a spot near the railway tracks.

(Editor's Note: These files were actually declassified in 1985. The UFO Casebook has had this report on its case files for many years. Go to: 1955 - US Senators See Flying Saucers In Soviet Russia.)

THREE 'highly reliable' US government officials reported seeing TWO UFOs hovering near a train line, but their superiors covered the sightings up, it has emerged.

Formerly confidential files obtained by alien researchers detail the account given by senior senator Richard B Russell and two aides of seeing the "flying saucers" TAKE OFF.

At the time, Sen. Russell was on a Soviet-era train during a fact-finding mission to Russia, nearly 60 years ago.

Sen. Russell, was a former chairman of the Armed Services Committee and one of America's most influential senators until he died in 1971 after serving for 38 years.

Documents obtained by the Fund for UFO Research (FUFOR) said Sen. Russell was travelling with his two aides in the Transcaucasus region on October 4, 1955 at about 7 pm, when the incident occurred.

He is said to have looked out of the window and spotted two disc-shaped UFOs 'taking off' from a spot near the railway tracks.

According to reports, the documents state how Sen. Russell hurriedly called over aide Lt Col Hathaway and interpreter Ruben Efron to the window, with them both seeing the two crafts 'take off'.

He and the aides reported the sighting to US Air Force and security agencies once at the US embassy in Prague, in then Czechoslovakia, but the account was kept strictly confidential.

Lt Col Thomas Ryan, air attaché at the embassy, filed a top secret Air Force intelligence report on the trio's sighting on October 14, 1955 after meeting them.

He wrote the report was "based on an eyewitness account of the ascent and flight of an unconventional craft by three highly reliable United States observers.”

Senator Russell The document said Lt Col Hathaway told Lt Col Ryan: “I doubt if you are going to believe this, but we all saw it. Senator Russell was the first to see this flying disc we’ve been told for years that there isn’t such a thing, but all of us saw it.

“One disc ascended almost vertically, at a relatively slow speed, with its outer surface revolving slowly to the right, to an altitude of about 6,000 feet, where its speed then increased sharply as it headed north. The second flying disc was seen performing the same actions about one minute later. The take-off area was about 1 to 2 miles south of the rail line.”

The men, and a fourth unidentified witness, were also interviewed by CIA agents.

The documents state Mr Efron reported visibility as "excellent" and the UFOs appeared to “glide” as “no noise was heard and no exhaust glow or trail was seen.”
