Radar Tracks Object Before & After Hill Abduction
Sept. 19 & 20th, 1961
North Concord AFS, Vermont / Pease AFB, New Hampshire

May 1974: Air Command & Staff College Research Report No. 0450-74:
"The time that the Hills spent aboard the spacecraft could very well explain the two hours of their trip which were previously unaccounted for. Assuming the examinations did take two hours, and the UFO left shortly after releasing the Hills, an eerie time correlation can be drawn between the Hills' reported midnight sighting and the UFO tracked by Pease AFB radar at 2:14 a.m. "

September 19, 1961; North Concord AFS, Vermont
At 5:22 local time, a return was picked up on an AN/MPS-14 height finder radar at 62,000 feet at 196 degrees at 84 miles. The target was the size of a large aircraft and appeared as a normal target. Contact was lost at 199 degrees at 80 miles going NW then south. Length of observation was 18 minutes. The target moved at a low speed on an erratic course. The location of observers was at 5 miles east of Claremont, New Hampshire. (Dan Wilson)

Fran Ridge:
Another UFO was sighted by Pease AFB precision approach radar only two hours following the Hill visual sighting.  The report of the first radar sighting was not wired to the Project Blue Book staff at Wright-Patterson AFB until nearly three days after the actual sighting took place. Personnel at the N. Concord AFS, Vermont sent their TWX on 22 September 1961 at 0234Z. The radar sighting took place on 19 September at 2122Z.(26:file)."  See 57 new document pages below.
