Location: Malmstrom AFB, Montana BBU
Time: 11:15 p.m. (MDT).
Summary: A/2C Bejnard G. Bell, 29th FIS roving aircraft guard, observed a delta wing-shaped object, flying directly overhead. The object was silver in color and appeared as large as a volleyball at arm’s length, was solid in shape with no openings, no props, no exhaust, no tail section, and no conventional means of motivation visible. The object made a varied pitch whistling sound, but was much quieter than a jet. The object moved gradually to the north and was observed for approximately 30 seconds. The object was picked up on the approach control radar for four sweeps at Malmstrom AFB. No scramble of aircraft was ordered. Officials at ATIC were not happy about no scramble being made and apparent non-compliance with AF Reg. 200-2, specifically Par 1, (Requirement for rapid identification).
