Alaskan Radar Case
January 22, 1952
Nenana, Alaska

Francis Ridge:
Jan. 22, 1952; Nenana, Alaska
This was a an incident involving both ground and airborne radar. Three F-94's were scrambled to intercept the radar target. The UFO maneuvered and radar indicated it streaked away to the west. The object was tracked at 23,000 feet and clocked at 1500 mph. At first the Air Force claimed this was a weather target. But when you read the documents below you can see they never explained this incident.

Capt. Edward J. Ruppelt:
A month or two after we'd received the report, I was out in Colorado Springs at Air Defense Command Headquarters. I was eating lunch in the officers' club when I saw an officer from the radar operations section at ADC. He asked me to stop by his office when I had a spare minute, and I said that I would. He said that it was important. (See report below)
