GCA Vectors KC-97 To UFO
August 10, 1965
Suffolk County AFB, New York


Dan Wilson:
August 10, 1965; Suffolk County, New York
At around 8:50 p.m. local time, a large circular object with over 100 lights was observed at very low altitude in the vicinity of Riverhead, N.Y. by an airman. The object hovered for 5-10 minutes and then flew away towards Montauk. Around 9:15 p.m., at the Suffolk County AFB, a call came in of someone reporting a UFO in the vicinity of Southhampton. A request was made to divert a KC-97 aircraft (AG 506) to make a run on the UFO and try and identify it. This was done with the help of GCA Vectors. The pilot saw the object but was unable to identify it. (Dan Wilson)
