Date: January 15 1947: Yokohama Japan Sighting


Date: Jan. 16, 1947
Location: North Sea, 50 miles from Holland   BBU 54
Time: 10:30 p.m. (GMT).
Summary: 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.

Date: Jan. 17, 1947
Location: North Sea
Time: afternoon
Summary: In the afternoon, two Chain Home Low stations in Lincolnshire (Skendleby and Humberstone) tracked what they described as “an exceptionally good track” (U294) at 10,000 feet above the North Sea. With Eastern Sector on alert, Meteor jets from 245 Squadron were placed on standby to scramble if Charlie came within range, but the plot faded from their screens. At 1945 hours the radar station at Humberstone, near Grimsby again tracked an unidentified target over the sea for a period of 30 minutes at a speed of more than 200 mph.
