Francis Ridge:
If we had to list only ten of the very best UFO cases on record, the RB-47 UFO incident would be on that list. The case directory has been updated as of Aug. 8, 2008, by Brad Sparks. (See link below) and just recently (Jan 15, 2010) by Dan Wilson with the addition of 56 pages of documents.

Brad Sparks:
