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.

F-94 Radar/Visual of Rotating UFO
Jan. 9, 1953
Misawa AFB, northern Japan


Brad Sparks:
Jan. 9, 1953; Misawa AFB, Japan (BBU)
Pilot and radar observer of an F-94 jet interceptor saw and tracked a rotating UFO. Air base Commander, Col. George W. Perdy, stated there was "remarkable corroboration as to description of the cluster of lights by people widely separated who hadn't so much as talked to one another." (UFOE, McDonald list)

Dan Wilson:
6:50 p.nm. The F-94 aircraft made radar contact with the object at a range of 24,000 yards. The radar locked on at 5000 yards. The radar contact was broken at a range of 200 yards. The radar observer reported unusual interference on the set throughout the mission but the set appeared to be operative before and after contact. The radar contact was for approximately 2 minutes.
