Several Targets Over Andrews AFB
Aug. 6, 1952
Andrews AFB, Maryland

Dan Wilson:
August 6, 1952; Andrews AFB, Maryland (BB)
At 2200 hours an unidentified object was observed on the radar scope at a distance 2 1/2 miles away on a bearing of 116 degrees, moving in a southerly direction. At 2223 hours three unidentified objects were observed on the radar scope. The first object was at 4 1/2 miles away at a bearing of 80 degrees. The second object was at 3 miles at a bearing of 100 degrees. The third object was at 4 1/2 miles at a bearing of 113 degrees. At 2232 hours one object was observed at 5 miles away at a bearing of 93 degrees. At 2239 hours two targets appeared on the radar scope at a bearing of 53 degrees. At this time a B-25 aircraft was returning to Andrews AFB and when the B-25 approached the unknown radar targets they disappeared. Earlier at 2115 hours a civilian man observed two bright objects high in the sky over SE Washington D.C. The two objects were flying towards Andrews AFB, one in a straight course and the other circling the first. The objects were circular in shape and appeared to be the size of a fifty cent piece. According to the witness the objects were flying faster than any jet he had ever seen. The Andrews AFB case is not listed in the Project Blue Book Master Index. (Dan Wilson)
