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.

RAF Mosquito Pursues Radar Target Again
January 17, 1947
North Sea, 50 miles from Holland


Date: Sat., 4 July 2009 05:57:17 -0500
Fran Ridge:
On the afternoon of 17 January two Chain Home Low stations in Lincolnshire (Skendleby and Humberstone) tracked what they described as "an exceptionally good track" (U294) at 10,000 feet above the North Sea. With Eastern Sector on alert, Meteor jets from 245 Squadron were placed on standby to scramble if Charlie came within range, but the plot faded from their screens. At 1945 hours the radar station at Humberstone, near Grimsby again tracked an unidentified target over the sea for a period of 30 minutes at a speed of more than 200 mph.

Jan Aldrich:
The U.S. got a full report on this which (Captain Edward) Ruppelt saw and summarized.  The summary was in Hynek's files now at CUFOS.  It contains some fact which were not in records the British have uncovered.
