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.

Fran Ridge:
A very interesting radar incident. After Dan Wilson located 10 documents (see below) Brad Sparks was able to expand his original synopsis of the case which is also presented in the link below.

Brad Sparks:
March 20, 1955; Tokyo, Japan (BBU)
4:13 p.m. 2 U.S. military pilots flying 2 aircraft tracked an unidentified target by airborne radar, and tracked by ground radar. (Project 1947).

Dan Wilson:
The 5th Air Force reported an actual yellow alert due to this radar sighting............................... The fact that they were going to fire on the UFO without identification being made might mean that they did know it was a UFO and not just some unknown aircraft.
