At 1:50 a.m. local time, an unidentified radar track on the GCA Planned Position Indicator (PPI) scope was reported. Sgt. Lucas while tracking a MATS C-124 at a position of 5 miles NE of Thule Air Base, a prominent blip emerged from the normal clutter area on the scope. The speed of the object was estimated at 180 knots or better. The altitude of the object was estimated at 5000 to 6000 feet. The object was tracked for three minutes before it faded from the scope.
