Summary: Haskell Raper, Jr., was driving home on a rainy night when he saw a large, lighted object on the road ahead, which he thought was a truck. Suddenly the object flashed a beam of light directly at the car, apparently exerting a strong pressure and slowing it to a stop 5 m away. The object was then described as oval, 5 m long, 3 m high, army green in color. It bore lettering beginning with the letters UN, followed by some numbers. A sort of heat wave filled the car, and the witness ran out in panic as the vehicle caught fire. The object rose with the sound of a diesel engine. Raper ran to the town, less than 2 km away; and reported the incident. The car, a 1956 Ford, was completely destroyed.

Brink saw a highly maneuverable 15-20 ft egg-shaped object with a white light at its base circle over the W [E?] end of the base at 150-200 mph and come down in a steep 30° dive as if landing on Runway 26, to the N or NW of the tower at about 1500 ft. Radar tracked part of this maneuver. Object then crossed flight line, runways and taxiways heading towards the tower at about 50 mph and 20-30 ft above ground, observed through 7x binoculars till it reached about 3,000 ft to the ENE near the NE corner of the floodlit restricted nuclear Weapons Storage Area / Area D/Drumhead Area, and a B-58 bomber service site, where it hovered for 20 secs-1 min then headed E again, at about 200-300 ft height, then suddenly shot up at a steep climb at about 45,000 [4,500?] ft/min. Controllers contacted RAPCON which tracked object on CPN-18 radar traveling E then turning S, circling the Albuquerque Low Frequency Range Station then headed N [disappearing at 10 miles and reappearing 20 mins later to circle around ?] to follow 1/2 mile behind a USAF C-46 that had just taken off to the S for 14 miles until both went off scope. Hovering radar target then appeared to the N over outer marker for 1-1/2 mins before fading. (McDonald 1968, 1972; Hynek UFO Exp ch. 7, case RV-3) 25 mins

Summary: Nov. 7, 1957; Pantex AEC ordnance plant, 15 miles east of Amarillo, Texas
7:46 p.m. Bright, flashing objects hovered for half an hour over Pantex Atomic Energy Commission ordnance plant. The brilliant objects were reported to the State Highway Patrol office by plant guards at 7:46 p.m. and a patrolman dispatched to the plant arrived at 8:15 p.m. and reported that he, too, saw “a strange light.” The patrolman said guards at the plant were “all shook up.” Guards said three objects had been floating over the plant 50 feet above the ground “for some time.” ‘When I got there,” the patrolman said, “the guards said one of the objects had landed on Farin Road 2373, three miles north of Highway 60. We drove to the area but nothing was there. But I’m convinced that the guards saw something land.” The patrolman said guards told him they had tried to slip up on the objects by turning off their lights “but the things would just slip away from them when they got near.” Guards were unable to estimate size of the objects. The patrolman, also said the guards seem positive “they saw more than just lights ­that objects were in the sky.” (Dan Wilson/Robert Hastings)

We observed a target, unidentified, in Soviet airspace heading east at high speed. Our first thought was that it was some type of missile. We turned on the scope camera and notified the site commander. The object was estimated at 25000kt. The first contact was at about 200 miles, which would make it very high or very large.

12:01 p.m. local time. (601st AC&W Squadron) The first target was initially detected on AN/MPS-11 and AN/MPS-14 (?) radar at 22 miles SW of Merseberg Sovzone Airfield, at 100 degrees azimuth at 70 nautical miles. This radar blip split into two targets on a parallel course on separation. The flight path was to the north. The speed of the targets were from 2,000 to 3,000 nmph. At 6:42 p.m. (1742Z), a high speed target was detected on the AN/MPS-11 radar at 100 degrees at 135 nautical miles with a flight path to the north. The height indicator showed the target at 60,000 feet, changing to 63,000 feet. This sighting lasted for 2 minutes. There was an unusual amount of electronic interference which the radar maintenance officer was able to explain except for the target being reported.  At 6:53 p.m. (1753Z),  a high speed blip was detected on the AN/MPS-11 radar at 131.5 degrees at 136 nautical miles. Flight of the blip was to the NE at an estimated speed of 5,300 nmph. (The report form does say 5,300 nautical miles per minute.) This sighting lasted for 1 minutes plus. There was an unusual amount of electronic interference which the radar maintenance officer was able to explain except for the target being reported. All the targets painted as normal aircraft.

Farmers Joao Ernani and Pedro Zilli heard a strange buzzing sound, and saw within some 200 meters, two circular discs of aluminum color and six men of average size and slender body, who wore dark-gray tight-fitting suits, and were returning towards the discs. These discs hovered at 1 meter approximately above the ground, and seemed to be of approximately 3 meters in diameter. They rose with a strong whistling sound, and made some coconuts fold and almost break. At the same time, three other discs which had not been seen yet rose from behind trees, and the five craft went towards the southern Atlantic.

12:00 a.m. to 2:50 a.m. CST A radar target 15 miles long and 10 miles wide was observed. The target had a speed of 55 knots. After some figuring the altitude was estimated to be at 31,000 feet on the initial plot. The target had decreased in altitude to 3000 feet before it faded. The 747th AC&W Squadron and the 653rd AC&W Squadron also had radar contact with this target. The target was observed on MPS-7 and MPS-14 radar equipment. The search scopes were UPA-35 and OA-175. Weather and chaff were both considered and seemed unlikely that they caused the return. The Project 10073 Record Card gives the location as Houm, Alabama. (For the record this sighting took place at Houma AFS, Louisiana, the home of the 657th AC&W Squadron.) (Dan Wilson, BB files)
