11:20 p.m. (0820Z July 25). 1st Lt. Jones, pilot, and 2nd Lt. Aubrey M. Brenner, radar observer, while flying in an F-94 SE of Talkeetha, Alaska, made radar contact which appeared larger than an F-94 at 14,000 yards. Lock-on was accomplished at this time with a target speed of 40 knots greater than of the aircraft. Aircraft speed was increased to 350 knots in a 4200 feet per minute climb. The target was still pulling away at over 100 knots. After a climb to 18,500 feet the target appeared to level off and increase speed. The chase was broken off at this time.
