The Selfridge AFB Incident
March 9, 1950
Selfridge AFB, Michigan


Fran Ridge:
Here's an excellent case. Formerly classified secret, this radar-visual report surfaced as a result of the efforts of a former skeptic. This skeptic not only worked for the U.S. Air Force, he was their consultant on UFOs, none other than Dr. J. Allen Hynek.
