Summary: Lyyli Nilsson was going home and had come a few blocks from her flat when somebody spoke to her, looking up into one of the lime trees besides the street she saw two persons sitting there. There was a 15-minute conversation in Swedish between her and the persons, during which they said they were unable to come down into the street because they had different “clothing” and could be detected. They claimed to have recognized the witness and they gave her advice about her future. Finally they offered her a ride in a saucer, but she turned around and ran away. Looking back she noticed a bell shaped object hovering above the tree where the men were.

Summary: two different tracks of unidentified slow flying objects were carried on radar by the 663rd AC&W Squadron. F-86D aircraft made radar contact with the objects and made repeated intercepts with the E-4 weapons system through all phases to Splash without any visual contact being made by the pilots. Both objects gave a bright return on ground and airborne radar. At around 1:46 a.m., Oct.18, F/Blue 2 F-86D got a radar contact at two miles from the target.
