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.

What a team!!! There were 76 documents regarding this case which implies a "carrier operation" often reported in those earlier years. Good job.

Brad Sparks:
Nov. 11, 1956; El Toro Marine Corps Air Station, Calif. (BBU)
9:30 p.m. (PST). USMC pilot flying helicopter and ground witnesses saw a flashing red light with ground radar tracking. (Weinstein; FUFOR Index)
 
Dan Wilson:
Beginning at 9:30 p.m. (PST) and continuing for up to 8 hours many targets were tracked on radar at speeds of 50 knots to 15,000 mph. At times lights were seen in the area where the radar targets were being detected.  At times smaller objects appeared to join larger object and merge with it to form a larger blip. A few seconds later the smaller objects would depart and dash all over the screen leaving the larger blip in its original size. (Dan Wilson)
