New Book Reveals UFO Encounters of the Roaring Twenties!

By: PRLog

Although many people believe that UFO sightings began in the 1940s, a significant number of encounters were reported in North America during the decade of the 1920s. These cases are featured in a new book by UFO researcher Noe Torres and historian John LeMay. The book is part of a series examining UFO cases that occurred in the United States prior to 1940.

ROSWELL, N.M. - Jan. 24, 2022 - PRLog -- America in the 1920s was a country on the move, with airplanes becoming more sophisticated, technology progressing rapidly, and medicine conquering many diseases. But rarely mentioned by history books were the frequent sightings of unidentified flying objects. These unusual stories are told in the new book UFOs in the Roaring Twenties: American Sightings 1920-1929, written by UFO researcher Noe Torres and Roswell, New Mexico, historian John LeMay. The 248-page volume is available in paperback, hardcover, and e-book at or from the authors' web site,

In the 1920s, manned flight had finally become commonplace. Aviators such as Charles Lindbergh "slipped the surly bonds" and began exploring the heavens. But even as humans sought to conquer the skies, they often encountered strange "airships" that clearly were not manmade and that exhibited amazing aviation technology that exceeds even the aircraft of the 21st century!

The decade of the twenties started with a bang, as a mysterious UFO crash took place near Okmulgee, Oklahoma, in June 1920. A young scientist named Lincoln LaPaz investigated what witnesses described as an "airplane falling in flames." LaPaz later looked into many famous UFO cases, including the 1947 Roswell UFO crash.

Another mysterious UFO crash took place in July 1920 in the woods outside of Iowa City, Iowa. Although local residents assumed that an airplane had gone down, the evidence found at the crash site told a different story. The crashed ship had no "engine" in the conventional sense!

Bethel, North Carolina, had its own close encounter in September 1920 when a UFO landed in the middle of a cotton field. It was described as a large, metallic-silver object "like two pie pans placed together, lip to lip." Out of the craft stepped two "little bald" humanoids, shocking the eyewitnesses.

Texas experienced its own unique UFO case in October 1920, when four flying discs were spotted by fishermen just north of Freeport. The witness said the UFOs looked "like two big silver plates set edge to edge."

These are a few of the many strange stories in the new book UFOs in the Roaring Twenties: American Sightings 1920-1929, written by Noe Torres and John LeMay. Available in paperback, hardcover, and e-book, the new release may be purchased from Amazon at or from
