August 21, 1951; Northern Sea of Japan
At 12:05 a.m. local time a USN P2V-3W patrol plane at the position of 41 degrees 55' N - 133degrees 52' E, a target appeared of the plane's radar, an AN/FPS-20. The squadron electronic officer viewed the scope and identified the target as authentic and distinct from sea return. The target caused a strong presentation on the scope throughout the 45 minute contact.
