Uncorrelated Targets Comparable to B-29
Nov. 10, 1950
South Ruislip, England

Dan Wilson:
November 10, 1950; South Ruislip, England
8:59 a.m. Not listed as an unknown in BB files, four radar contacts were made with an airborne unidentified object over England at altitudes of 1,000 feet or less to 30,000 feet or more and giving returns comparable to those of a B-29 aircraft, between 8:59 a.m.and 10:26 a.m.. The speed of the object varied from 30 m.p.h. to 1000 m.p.h. statute. One contact at  9:46 a.m.lasting until 9:47 a.m., the object was lost due to accelerations and ascent in excess of capability of radar automatic tracking equipment. The object was observed through surface contact by AN/MPQ-2.. Observation was made from a radar van at Heston Airdrome (51deg. 29' N -- 00 deg. 23' W).
