Summary: The 685th AC&W Squadron at Lac Cruces AFS carried a total of 54 unidentified blips on their radar screen traveling from the north toward the station at speeds of 60 – 160 knots at altitudes of 6,000 to 14,000 feet. The targets disappeared approximately three miles out. The initial sighting consisted of 23 blips. At the same time the 686th AC&W Squadron at Roswell AFB, NM, had a number of blips, but with insufficient movement to establish track information. Four interceptor aircraft were scrambled out of the 15th FIS at Tuscon, Arizona and the 93rd FIS at Albuquerque, New Mexico. Two separate radar contacts were made by these aircraft including 13 targets at approximately 100 miles NE of El Paso, Texas.  1 hr 39 mins

Summary: Feb. 13, 1957; Marrero, Louisiana (BBU)
8:00 p.m. CST. Several civilians reported seeing flying objects over Marrero. The objects appeared to be at high altitude. Moisant Airport radar detected nebulous targets in the area. At 9:40 p.m., observers reported that three flying objects were in a V-formation changing to a straight line, then disappearing upon the appearance of two aircraft in the area. At first the objects appeared to be hovering. then moved, gradually accelerating. The observers believed that the objects were not aircraft. (McDonald list; FUFOR Index) 1 hr 40 mins

Date:  February 14 1957
Location:  Stead AFB, Nevada
Time:  1::05 a.m. PST.
Summary:  Control Tower operators observed to the northeast, an object, oval in shape and the size of a nickel held at arm’s length. The object had a brilliant blue light with flashing red light and was at an elevation approximately 20 degrees at 45 degrees azimuth. The witnesses described the object as two saucers placed face to face. The total length of the observation was two hours. Just before the object disappeared, the UFOB remained stationary for about 8 minutes then rose very rapidly to the right of azimuth 45 degrees true, apparently away from this station since the brilliance of the object dimmed and the size diminished. Detachment Commander, Airman Dedrick, states he was informed by Reno Filter Center that Mater(?) Radar and another radar site, identity unknown, made radar contact with the UFOB.
