Summary: Two round white UFOs maneuvered around a missile in flight. A team of Navy engineers and technicians under the command of Robert B. McLaughlin watched two white discs pace a V-2 rocket during its test launch from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico . One of the discs passed through the rocket’s exhaust and then shot straight up. The event was witnessed by at least five U.S. Navy rocket scientists and engineers. Two white round objects, about 20 feet across, were observed by more than five male military witnesses near a missile for over 15 minutes (McLaughlin). No sound was heard

Date: June 10, 1949    
Location: Anchorage, Alaska
Time: .  21:00
Summary: A disk, first visible at about 10,000 feet elevation at a distance of about ten miles, became noticeable as it proceeded ssw and emerged from behind the southern profile of the Chugach Range. As it cleared the southernmost peak visible from Anchorage, viewed from approximately 12th and G streets, it made a right turn. This turn was nearly a U-turn and the disc proceeded nne, now on the west side of the mountains and fully visible from the vantage point. The disk was now an elevation lower than the mountain peaks, they are between 5,000 and 7,000 feet. As the disk moved nne it slowly lost altitude and moved closer to the vantage point. The disk now appeared clearly disc shape with a slightly curved underside, a wider band slightly below the midpoint and a dome shaped top with windows just above the midpoint. The windows appeared nearly clear yellow, as if from heat, and the craft was that color with slight glowing appearance of hot metal showing green, blue and orange very slightly. The disk began to wobble as it descended and it was obvious it was about to crash. There was no sound while it was in the air, although one expected to hear something, and there was no sound from the impact but there was a difference in sound, possibly a very low vibration. I was a child when I observed this, in the company of adults. The next day I was told that a group of government employees had been sent out to find any remaining debris. They located the crash scene, crated their findings and sent them to Wright Patterson. Because this occurred so very long ago I am not sure of the date but have given my best estimate.

Date: June 14, 1949                BBU
Location: White Sands, New Mexico
Summary: Not listed among the original BB Unknowns, this case IS listed in the Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns by Brad Sparks. According to Sparks, the date must have been the 14th, rather than the 10th as previously thought.. There was a report in the LA Times that there was film taken but AFOSI was told the film showed nothing. The WSMR launch records show the only Navy missile launches in the period were the Viking No. 1 on May 3rd and No. 2 on Sept 6, 1949, and nothing in June 1949. There was however an Army V-2 launched on June 14, 1949. My search of the BB microfilm records turned up the correct date and the fact that it WAS a V-2 rocket. The film may have showed something but there is no evidence to support it as yet. () (Note: Blossom IVB Ionosphere-solar/Biological mission Launch Vehicle: V-2. V-2 47 Apogee: 134 km (83 mi). Launched 15:35 local time. Reached 133.9 km. Carried cosmic and solar radiation, temperature, pressure, ionosphere, photo experiments for Air Research and Development Command. Second V-2 flight carrying a live AF Aero Medical Laboratory monkey, Albert II. The monkey survived but died on impact. – Dan Wilson)
