RADCAT Case Directory
  Category 9, RADAR  


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.

The 1967 Cuban Jet Incident
March 1967
NE of Cuba

Fran Ridge:
March 1967; NE of Cuba
Time not stated. This incident has been explained to my satisfaction, but is placed here for the historical record. Briefly, this is what was supposed to have happened. Nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman, one of America's leading UFO researchers, obtained details of an alarming incident which included a statement by a security specialist attached to a unit of the Air Force Security Service, based with the 6947th Security Squadron whose mission was the monitoring of all Cuban military communications: In March of 1967... Cuban radar installations reported a bogey approaching the Cuban land mass from the northeast. Two MiG-21 interceptors were scrambled. After a futile attempt to contact the object for identification, Cuban Air Defense headquarters ordered the wing leader to arm his weapons and destroy the object. The wing leader reported his missiles armed and his radar locked-on. Seconds later the wing man began screaming to the ground controller that the wing leader's aircraft had exploded. The best version of this incident was written up in JUST CAUS, but is not available. However, the best-available source that we have is CLEAR INTENT, which for this now non-UFO case is linked below.
