RADCAT is a revitalized special project now being conducted jointly by NICAP & Project 1947 with the help and cooperation of the original compiler of RADCAT, Martin Shough, to create a comprehensive listing of radar cases with detailed documentation from all previous catalogues, including UFOCAT and original RADCAT.

Fran Ridge:
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.

9:00 p.m. An unidentified object was picked up by ground radar within 3 miles of two F6F-5N aircraft on a GCI flight. One pilot made a visual contact with the object with a long silver fuselage, no lights. The unidentified object followed the F6F-5Ns being controlled by GCI. The return on the radar was twice the size of the F6F aircraft and the speed of the object was estimated as twice as fast as the F6F's cruising at 160 knots. (See also Nov. 14, same location)
