GCA Radar Tracks Unidentified Object
April 12, 1953
Torbay Airport, Newfoundland

Dan Wilson:
April 12, 1953; Torbay Airport, Newfoundland 
At 10:31 a.m. local time, an unidentified target appeared on the GCA radar scope on a magnetic course of approx. 270 degrees. One of the observers looked outside and saw what he thought was a B-29 a/c. When the object disappeared, the observer returned to the radar set where he observed the object making a 180 degree turn 8 miles west of the airport. It faded from the radar scope 30 miles away in a northeast direction. This sighting was phased into a vital intelligence sighting incident.
