June 11, 1975; Quebec City, Quebec, Canada
4:00 p.m. A large shiny triangular object was observed over Quebec City at an estimated altitude above 40,000 feet. Observers were a T-33 at 29,000 feet and a DC-8 at 31,000 feet and personnel of Quebec Terminal. The object moving very slowly to the NNW was observed on the Monteal/Quebec radar. There was no radar contact on the 22nd NORAD Region radars due to outages. (National Research Council of Canada Record Group 77, Vol. 308, reel number 1742 N75/071)
