Summary: Several employees of the Martin Company and Army personnel observed three unusual radar returns on the long range radar. Three objects were observed approaching the Chicago area from ESE with 30 second separation at speeds in excess of 4000 knots. The radar return was very sharp. An attempt was made to determine the altitude of the objects but their speed was beyond the capability of the equipment. After the sightings the equipment was tested and found to be in perfect operating order.
