At 4:55 p.m. CST, a B-52 aircraft picked up an object on an ASB-4 radar and repeater scope with an estimated speed of 10,000 to 14,000 knots on a collision course at 38,000 feet. The object was bearing 20 degrees on an inbound track and 240 degrees after passing the aircraft. After passing the aircraft the object was picked up on the tail gunner's MD-9 radarscope.  (This is curious: A Major Richard R.
