Date: January 19, 1946
Location: Sweden
Time: 10:30 p.m.
Summary: (GMT). RAF pilot of Mosquito pursued unidentified radar target showing efficient controlled evasive action at 22,000 ft speed equal or greater than Mosquito, headed W? towards Norfolk, Eng. (FOIA) This was five months before the Kenneth Arnold sighting and the beginning of the Wave of 1947, followed by the crash at Roswell in early July. The incident was also linked to another “X raid” tracked by radar earlier that same day. An FBI document from July of 1947 quoted the Air Ministry case summary stating that: “no explanation has been forthcoming, nor has it been repeated.” This information was not entirely accurate, because a very similar incident had occurred just 24 hours after the North Sea incident. As a direct result, Fighter Command immediately extended its night radar watch.
