Sept. 14, 1972; Palm Beach, Florida
At 4:20 A.M., an unidentified "bogie" was detected on radar at the West Palm Beach International Airport by FAA air traffic controller C. J. Fox. Fox described the contact as a "good clear target." The object was tracked for over an hour when at approximately 6:00 A.M., NORAD was alerted. Two F-106 jet fighters were dispatched from Homestead AFB, south of Miami, to locate and identify the the unknown object. The object disappeared from radar scopes shortly before the jets arrived. There were visual reports from the West Palm Beach International Airport by FAAwatch supervisor George Morales. He viewed the object through binoculars and described the object as silver white in color and cigar shaped. Officials at Miami Interanational Airport, which also tracked the strange object, reported no aircraft was known to be in the area where the UFO was spotted.
