Dan Wilson:
August 7, 1957; Ohio Central Indiana (BB)
1:51 a.m. (radar)  Starting at around midnight strange objects with colored lights were sighted by troopers, local police and local citizens over Alexandria, Yorktown, Portland, Pendleton, Greenwood, Elwood, Tipton, and Kokomo, all in Indiana. The sightings lasted until nearly 2 a.m. It was at 1:51 a.m., Portland reported object still sighted northeast and that District 5 (Piqua area?) in Ohio picked up an object on radar at between 6,000 and 8,000 feet but was unable to identify. Bunker Hill AFB was alerted of the sightings by State Police and the 319th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron made a sweep of the local area with their radar installation but there were no contacts. (Reference: Logansport Pharos-Tribune, August 7, 1957, page 1) The speed of the objects was given as from a stand still to high speed.The Project Blue Book report for Bunker Hill AFB for August 7, 1957 is listed on the Master Index as (CASE MISSING). There is a Project 10073 Record Card. (Dan Wilson)
