For a number of years I had on file a confidential document dated November 21, 1950, regarding two incidents concerning unidentified aircraft operating with no lights in warning area assigned to Fawtulant, NAS, Key West, Florida. It was prepared by the Commanding Officer, Fleet All Weather Training Unit, Atlantic, U.S. Naval Air Station, Boca Chica Field, Key West, Florida.

Appoximately 8:00 p.m. local time, an unidentified object was picked up by ground radar at 15,000 feet at 30 miles north of NAS, Key West. The speed of the object was 480 mph on a heading of 180 degrees. The object made a turn to the right and faded from the scope. An F6F-5N picked up object on radar at 1 1/2 miles range but was unable to close for visual contact. At approximately 8:15 p.m. an unidentified object traveling at high speed was sighted by the pilot of a F6F-5N near NAS, Key West.  (Dan Wilson)
