Haven made a tight turn to pursue, noted no wash or slipstream from the object traveling at about 900 mph, which made 5-6 head on passes at the AD-4Q, climb rate >2,000 ft/min, chase abandoned at 11,500 ft., as object outmaneuvered aircraft.

Date: Nov. 10, 1950
Location: South Ruislip, England
Time: 8:59 a.m. 
Summary: Four radar contacts were made with an airborne unidentified object over England at altitudes of 1,000 feet or less to 30,000 feet or more and giving returns comparable to those of a B-29 aircraft, between 8:59 a.m. and 10:26 a.m. The speed of the object varied from 30 m.p.h. to 1000 m.p.h. statute. One contact at 9:46 a.m. lasting until 9:47 a.m. the object was lost due to accelerations and ascent in excess of capability of radar automatic tracking equipment. The object was observed through surface contact by AN/MPQ-2.. Observation was made from a radar van at Heston Airdrome (Dan Wilson; 51 deg. 29′ N — 00 deg. 23′ W).

Date: Nov. 14, 1950
Location: Key West, Florida (BBU)
Time: Approximately 8:00 p.m. local time
Summary: an unidentified object was picked up by ground radar at 15,000 feet at 30 miles north of NAS, Key West. The speed of the object was 480 mph on a heading of 180 degrees. The object made a turn to the right and faded from the scope. An F6F-5N picked up object on radar at 1 1/2 miles range but was unable to close for visual contact. At approx. 8:15 p.m. an unidentified object traveling at high speed was sighted by the pilot of a F6F-5N near NAS, Key West.

Date: Nov. 15, 1950
Location: Key West, Florida (BBU)
Time: 9:00 p.m.
Summary: An unidentified object was picked up by ground radar within 3 miles of two F6F-5N aircraft on a GCI flight. One pilot made a visual contact with the object with a long silver fuselage, no lights. The unidentified object followed the F6F-5Ns being controlled by GCI. The return on the radar was twice the size of the F6F aircraft and the speed of the object was estimated as twice as fast as the F6F’s cruising at 160 knots. [See also Nov. 14, same location]

Date: November 25 1950
Location: Columbus Ohio
Time: late night
Summary: The witness, who had gone to bed with a strange feeling that he was being watched, suddenly found himself being awakened by a tall beautiful human like figure with angelic features. The mysterious visitor raised his hand apparently causing the bedroom door to open, he then explained to the witness that he had come from a far away planet and wanted him to accompany him there. The witness agreed, apparently coming back two days later. The being was able to melt huge snowdrifts that had formed around the witness’s home with a laser-like weapon. No other information.

Date: Nov. 29-30, 1950
Location: Knoxville, Tenn. (BBU)
Time: 1755 hours. 
Summary: Numerous unidentified paints appeared on the radar scope at the 662nd AW Radar Detachment at the McGhee Tyson Airport, Knoxville, Tennessee. These paints almost covered the “Restricted Area” at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. A fighter aircraft was sent to the area but no visual contact was reported. Most of the targets were visible on the radar scope for two to three hours. At 1900 hours the graph record of a background (Geiger) counter in the “Restricted Area” indicated a pronounced rise in Alpha particles and a slight rise in Gamma rays at the same time. These readings were unaccounted for. The AEC advised that there were no known “Argon releases” during 29 or 30 November 1950. On November 30, 1950, at 1351 hours until 1405 hours a single unidentified target appeared on the radar scopes ranging 12 to 21 miles west to northwest of the station. At 1630 hours, on November 30, 1950, numerous unaccountable paints appeared on the radar scopes. The “paints” were so numerous they could not be counted or plotted. These paints remained visible on the radar screens until approximately 2330 or 2400 hours. At least nine highly qualified persons witnessed these targets.
