May 1, 1953; 10 miles S of Goose Bay AFB, Labrador, Canada (BBU 2555)
11:35 [11:20?] p.m. (AST). USAF 59th FIS pilot Capt. R. L. Emberry and radar operator 1st Lt. J. R. Morin of F-94 jet interceptor flying at 24,000 ft, and control tower operator, saw a white light or unidentified aircraft with afterburner but unlike any known aircraft, about 10,000 ft below the jet, evaded interception by F-94. Both object and F-94 climbed to 40,000 ft but object outpaced the jet and continued climb until out of sight. (Berliner; Joel Carpenter)
