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.

F-94 Intercept With ADC Detection
July 26, 1952
Williams, California

Brad Sparks:
July 26, 1952; Williams, Calif. (BBU Missing)
5:15 p.m. (PST). [N Calif. F-94C intercept case involving large orange-­yellow object moving fast and slow, tracked by airborne and ground radars?? (Weinstein)] Air Defense Command radar detected  a UFO, F-94 jet interceptor scrambled, locked onto the object  with its radar, crew saw a yellow-orange light. As confirmed by ground and airborne radar, the UFO played tag with the F-94, alternately accelerating away when it got close, then slowing down until it caught up again. (Ruppelt, pp. 222-223.)

Fran Ridge:
The lead from this case came from Kevin Randle and the case was finally matched up with the listing by Brad Sparks above.
The Air Force doc NARA-PBB1-66 lists the case and shows the file is missing. I wonder if Footnotes.com might have it?
