Date: Nov. 18, 1948            BBU
Location:  Andrews AFB / Camp Springs, Maryland
Time: 9:45-10:03 p.m. 
Summary: USAF Lts. Jackson and Combs, 2 reserve pilots, aboard an Andrews AFB T-6 aircraft traveling 150 mph and 2 independent ground observers saw a highly maneuverable whitish-grey oval lighted object smaller than the T-6 cross over Andrews AFB from NE to SW and back again in a circular pattern from 4,000 ft dropping to 1,700 ft then climbing to 7,000 ft. T-6 followed object to identify it, made 3-4 passes at the object while climbing, dove on the object at 240 mph but it dropped down and came up behind the T-6 and continued circling the base. T-6 was able with difficulty to put object in front of city lights on the ground to try to make out details, and came within about 300-400 ft turned on landing light and object responded with a dull glow, then sped off to the NE at 8,000+ ft and 500-600 mph disappearing. Object’s speed varied from 80 to 600 mph in multi directional or omni-directional flight, with vertical maneuverability, highly evasive with high acceleration. Another reserve pilot, a USAF 2nd Lt. in another aircraft over the NE corner of Andrews AFB at 1,000 ft saw the object directly overhead. A further independent witness, USAF Staff Sgt. John J. Kushner, observed object from the ground.

Date: Nov. 23, 1948      BBU
Location: Furstenfeldbruck AFB, Munich, West Germany
Time: 10:20 p.m. 
Summary: USAF F­80 jet fighter pilot Capt. Slater, another jet pilot Capt., and a 1st Lt. of 23rd Fighter Sq from the ground saw a reddish star-like object to the E moving S over Munich at 200-500 mph, turning slightly SW then SE. Slater called the Race Card DF Station equipped with radar which tracked an unidentified target at 27,000 ft and 30 miles S of Munich, climbing to 40,000 ft at 40 miles S of Munich then circling around. At 2200 hours, local time, 23 November 1948, Capt. —— saw an object in the air directly east of this base. It was at an unknown altitude. It looked like a reddish star and was moving in a southerly direction across Munich, turning slightly to the southwest then the southeast. The speed could have been between 200 to 600 mph, the actual speed could not be estimated, not knowing the height. Capt. — — called base operations and they called the radar station. Radar reported that they had seen nothing on their scope but would check again. Radar then called operations to report that they did have a target at 27,000 feet, some 30 miles south of Munich, traveling at 900 mph. Capt. —— reported that the object that he saw was now in that area. A few minutes later radar called again to say that the target had climbed to 50,000 feet, and was circling 40 miles south of Munich. Capt. —— is an experienced pilot now flying F-80’s and is considered to be completely reliable. The sighting was verified by Capt. —— , also an F-80 pilot.
