Fran Ridge:
This Blue Book case (with fine-tuned corrections) illustrates the need to research and log other very brief, meteorlike incidents as we have been doing, since this UFO might have normally been written off.

Feb. 24, 1952; Antung, Korea, (BBU 1061)
11:15 p.m. local. After a leaflet mission the navigator of a B-29 aircraft observed an object approaching the aircraft at high velocity. The object appeared to round it shape at first. As it came closer the shape appeared to be cylindrical and the size of an automobile. The object continued to close in and turned to left as though making a correction to intercept the B-29. The object appeared to come within 3000 feet of the aircraft and then headed down below the B-29. The B-29 was flying at 22,000 feet at a speed of 200 knots.
