UFO News Article:
“The R.A.A.F. Investigates Flying Saucers”


9 January 1954
(The West Australian, Perth, Australia)

The whole article:
“The R.A.A.F. today made its first official statement on flying saucers and revealed that it had been investigating saucer reports since 1947.

A spokesman said that in the past few years hundreds of reports had been received and all were treated confidentially.

Each report is investigated by a R.A.A.F. intelligence officer and 24 questions put to the person making the report are tabulated in a two-page ‘report of aerial object observed’ form.

The reports are not published to prevent people from making faked sightings and so that a true and accurate check can be made on similar observations.

Meanwhile, Melbourne’s spate of flying saucer reports continued today when two more were reported.

One man said he saw a shining circular object about 30 ft. in diameter giving out a red vapour as it passed over Malvern, a Melbourne suburb.

A woman late today said she saw what she thought at first was a large yellow star.

The ‘saucer’ stayed low in the sky and in the same position for some time.”

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/49610401

This issue of The West Australian contains another UFO article:
“ ‘Pinkish Light’ Observed At Bayswater”

The whole article:
“Four people sitting on the lawn of a Bayswater house about 11 o'clock last night saw what they think may have been a ‘flying saucer.’

At first they thought the object—‘a pinkish light moving quite fast’—was a falling star.

However, when it hovered for a few seconds and zig-zagged a little, they discounted this theory.

The object then faded out towards the sea in the Scarborough area after a few minutes.

As there was no noise, and the object was overhead at one time, the four people decided that it could not have been an aircraft.”

“Category 11, SIGHTINGS FROM AIRCRAFT
The Sandy Hook / T-33 Incident
Sept. 10, 1951
Sandy Hook, New Jersey”


(NICAP.org)

The whole case report:
Brad Sparks:
11:35-11:37 a.m. (EDT) USAF pilots Lt. Wilbert S. Rogers and Major Ezra S. Ballard flying in a T-33 at 20,000 ft from Dover AFB, Delaware, to Mitchel AFB, New York, on a NNE course at 450 mph saw a silvery metallic discus-shaped 30-50 ft object to their 11 o’clock position below their altitude viewed against the Sandy Point area and silhouetted against the ground. Rogers immediately turned left and descended to intercept the object which then banked, revealing its flat round profile, no appendages, no trail, and curved in more tightly on the turn than the T-33, covering an estimated 30-50 n. mi. in 2 minutes (about 1,000-1,500 mph), and seen projected against the ground near Red Bank and Freehold, New Jersey, as the T-33 descended to 17,000 ft, accelerated to 550 mph and covering about 120° of its 360° turn during the sighting. The object passed within about 8,000 ft distance of the T-33, descending from about 12,000 to 5,000 ft and headed at high speed out to sea near Pt. Pleasant at about 120° heading until disappearance.

Fran Ridge:
This case caused a major stir at the Pentagon. Radar case at Fort Monmouth preceded this incident. Before our our research efforts (T-33 pilot reports to the media) all we had was the GRUDGE Report and this final statement by Capt. Ruppelt: ‘The UFO that the student radar operator had assumed to be traveling at a terrific speed because he couldn’t lock on to it turned out to be a 400-mile-an-hour conventional airplane. He had just gotten fouled up on his procedures for putting the radar set on automatic tracking. The sighting by the two officers in the T-33 jet fell apart when Metscher showed how they’d seen a balloon.’ Brad Sparks analysis proves that the T-33 was NOT chasing a balloon. (See below).”

“PILOTS CHASE ROUND OBJECT”


12 September 1951
(Daily Examiner, Grafton, Australia)

Source: Trove, National Library of AustraliaCanberra, ACT,
Australia

The whole article:
“Two Air Force jet fighter pilots reported to-day they had chased a mysterious round flying object for 30 miles yesterday without being able to catch it.

They estimated the object was travelling about 900 miles an hour.

One pilot, Lt. Rogers said: ‘I don't know if it was a flying saucer, but it sure was something I’ve never seen before.’

He said they could not have caught it in an F86 Sabre jet, America’s fastest plane.

Lt. Rogers described the object as white or silver coloured and about the size of a fighter plane.

He said they lost sight of the object when it turned out to sea. They first sighted it over Sandy Hook, New Jersey.

The Air Force and Navy have announced that flying saucers previously reported have been weather balloons.

‘This could not have been a balloon because it was descending and no balloon goes that fast,’ Lt. Rogers said.

The two pilots reported the incident to Air Force officials at Mitchell Field. The officials refused to comment on it.”

The incident occurred on 10 September 1951, according to NICAP’s report (nicap.org) on the case.


I also reported on this case on 2 November 2010:

UFO News Article:
“U.F.O. OVER LONDON AIRPORT”


7 March 1959
(The Canberra Times, ACT, Australia)

Source: Trove, National Library of Australia, Canberra, ACT,
Australia

The whole article:
Britain’s Air Ministry yesterday (6 March 1959) recorded a mysterious yellow disc seen hovering over London as a UFO–‘unidentified flying object.’

At least four reliable witnesses saw the ‘object’ between 7.25 and 7.45 p.m.

An air traffic control officer studied it for several minutes through binoculars before checking with radar operators – but they found no image on their screens.

One eyewitness said last night it was like the reflection of searchlights on clouds. However, he added, there were no clouds.

The R.A.F. Fighter Command, which was asked to investigate, gave this official description: ‘Bright yellow light varying in intensity. It stayed in one position for about 20 minutes, then climbed away at high speed.’ ”

Many Radar Controllers Track Large Blips
July 12, 1952
Kirksville, MO”

The whole case report:
Brad Sparks:
July 12 (13?), 1952; Kirksville, MO (BBU 1436)
9:00 + 9:15 + 9:20 + 9:30 +11:04 + 11:07 p.m. (CST). Many FPS-10 radar controllers at 790th AC&W Sq tracked large radar blips at 1,500+ knots (>1,700 mph) to 4,800 knots (5,600 mph) [actual speeds about 5,000 to 6,000 mph in all 6 tracks] inbound and outbound on nearly identical straight-line azimuths in about the 124-293 mile range [suggestive of real objects below about 20,000 ft within the Vertical-Lower beam of FPS-10 but not caught within higher-aimed Vertical-Center or Vertical-Upper beams limited to >2° elevation angle]. 6 single targets each tracked at following azimuths (at times listed above) coming to/from 142°-134°, 001°-354°, 220°-202°, 321°-320°, 320°, and 004°, with none crossing to other side of scope, a classic interference pattern except none extended to center of scope or to outer edge but disappeared like a real object in and out of radar blind zones. Checks with regional radar stations found none with antennas ‘in opposition’ (matching direction of Kirksville radar antenna at the same moment). No visual sighting, or other confirmation of targets by other radars [apparently not even by the ot her component radars within the FPS-10 operating on different frequencies, such as the Slant-Lower beam which would have given height data, none reported, which suggests interference or selective radar emissions or ECM]. Radar targets registered only every other sweep (every 30 secs of the 4 RPM sweep rate) suggesting interference by a 2 or 6 RPM sweep rate radar. Possible IFO non-real radar interference.
