68 years ago this month, the "Battle of Los Angeles"
This was not a drill, nor a practice for war. A very large unknown aerial object appeared over Los Angeles. At the time, it was feared that the Japanese were bringing the war to our western shores.
The next morning, the Los Angeles Examiner's headlines read: “Air Battle Rages over Los Angeles,” followed (in smaller type) by “One Plane Reported Downed on Vermont Avenue by Gunfire”.
What was the object that drew such an intense anti-aircraft barrage that February morning? Here is a riveting account of one eye witness, C. Scott Littleton.
