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.

CTOs and Pilot Report "Pear"
Sept. 13, 1959
Bunker Hill AFB (now Grissom AFB), Indiana


Brad Sparks:
Sept. 13, 1959; Bunker Hill AFB, Indiana (BBU 6507)
4 p.m. At least two control tower operators and the pilot of a Mooney private airplane saw a nearly motionless white, cream and metallic pear-shaped object, with a trail under it. Attempted intercept by USAF T-33 jet trainer failed. Ground radar tracking [?]. (Berliner; Project 1947)

Fran Ridge:
This was one of the first case documents I checked in the BB Archive, mainly because I was looking for Indiana cases. When I made the original case directory I found the report by Weinstein confirming ground radar tracking.

Dan Wilson:
One page does say, "T-33 shooting GCA, Bunker Hill was asked by control tower to investigate this object." See 8410000/.
