Date: June 3, 1952
Location: Chicago, Illinois BB
Time: 9:27 a.m.
Summary: Six to 10 targets were detected on AN/CPS 6B radar of the 755th AC&W Squadron. These targets were at the GEO. REF. position of DM 3012, on a heading of 310 degrees at an altitude of 25,000 feet at an estimated speed of 450 mph. The controller on duty checked with C.A.A. and M.F.S. for flight plans, but they had no flight plans. These radar targets were then declared unknowns, and an F-86 aircraft was scrambled out of O’Hare Field. The F-86 flying at 29,000 feet was radar directed toward the unknowns and merged with the unknown track. The F-86 was unable to sight any aircraft at the position occupied by the unknown track. At 9: 46 a.m., the unknown track turned to a heading of 140 degrees and followed the lake shore to position CM 5542. The unknowns then turned to a heading of 90 degrees and maintained this until position DM 3545. Now the unknown turned to a heading of 120 degrees and faded out at 10:16 p.m. The target indication was very strong on the PPI scope. During this incident a total of eight (8) aircraft were scrambled from three (3) different bases but no interception was accomplished.

Date: June 4, 1952
Location: Stuttgart, West Germany BBU
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Summary: USAF pilot and copilot of C-47 transport saw a circular object with white lights on the leading edge. One witness was a Lt. Colonel Whitman who was shortly thereafter assigned to the Directorate of Intelligence, Headquarters, United States Air Force. The object/light crossed in front of the C-47 aircraft at about 7,000 feet, about 2,000 feet higher than the C-47. The object was on a heading of approximately 270 degrees at a speed as great or greater than a jet fighter at cruise. The object was estimated to be 1 to 2 miles west of the C-47 and at this time the object made a fairly tight turn of approximately 145 degrees. The pilot, Capt. Gerald M. Jones turned the aircraft to try and intercept the object. The object approached rapidly. At this time Capt. Jones was able to observer the silhouette of the object. It appeared to be circular with white lights on the leading edge. At this point the object made a sharp turn to the left on a heading of 270 degrees and disappeared under the nose of the aircraft. The estimated total time the object was observed was not more than 3 minutes.

Location: Catalina Tucson Arizona
Time: afternoon
Summary: The witness was walking along a desert trail looking for interesting rocks when she noticed a ball of fire in the sky that descended and disappeared behind a nearby mountain ridge. The witness walked towards the direction where the light had gone down & then stopped to pick up a sparkling rock when she noticed a small gray man walking towards her saying “Do not be afraid” apparently using telepathy. The witness then apparently fell asleep. She woke up later lying on an examining table in a small room illuminated by a fuzzy light. Four little gray humanoids with large baldheads and huge bulging black eyes were examining her with instruments. They pulled down an apparatus with a light from the ceiling and ran it up and down her body. A small device was apparently planted in her ear and one in her abdomen. She was also shown a book with strange symbols and a scene with stars in a large 3-dimensional viewing screen.

Date: June 17 1952
Location: Near Hasselbach Germany
Time: 0230A
Summary: Oskar Linke, the former mayor of Germershausen was riding home on his motorcycle with his 11-year old stepdaughter Gabrielle when a tire burst near Hasselbach. They saw 60 yards away a “deer” which proved to be 2 human figures wearing shimmering metallic clothing, which were examining something on the ground. Approaching to within 30 ft, he saw an object, “like a huge oval warming pan” 40-50 ft across. Along the sides were 2 parallel rows of 1 ft diameter holes, and in the middle was a black cylindrical “conning tower” about 10 ft high. Hearing Linke’s daughter call to him, the figures (one of whom had a flashing lamp on his chest) rushed back to the object & entered the tower. Then the edge of the saucer started to glow—first green, then red—and to spin like a top, rising up the tower; then the whole machine rose (the cylinder once more protruding from the top) and flew away. At the site the cylinder had left a circular depression in the earth. Linke did not hear of flying saucers until after he had escaped to West Berlin.
