"We seek a free flow of information... we are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people." John F. Kennedy
What Radar Tells About Flying Saucers
Maj. Donald E. Keyhoe
This page contains excerpts from the December 1952 issue of True (The Man's Magazine).
The article on page 25 is titled "What radar tells about flying saucers."
"Hovering object that was scanned by radar and seen by ground watchers was caught on film by a climbing jet piolet. These unretouched 35 mm. gun-camera movie frames, released to TRUE by the Air Force, were taken at 30,000 feet, near Wright Field, at 11 a.m. on August 20, 1952."
"Saucer spots played among markers used by controllers to direct airliners on Washington traffic-center radarscope."
"Air Force radarmen learn to identify all normal phenomena."
Below is an enlargement of the diagram made from a controller's original sketch. I have cleaned it up purely to make it easier to read. I have not changed anything other than contrast and brightness after scanning it.
"From a controller's original sketch, some saucer movements July 20 on Washington radarscope are diagrammed above. At (A), seven blips appeared suddenly. Two moved ((B)) near White House, one near Capitol. At (C), one fled a north-westbound airliner (indicated by row of blips). Later ((D)) ten flocked at Andrews Field. (E) illustrates a saucer's right-angle turn compared with curving turn of ordinary aircraft."
