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.

Radio Amateur Tracks UFO With Radar? Maybe Not
March 1, 1950
Knoxville, Tennessee


Fran Ridge:
The witness and equipment are considered unreliable. The report synopsis by Bruce Maccabee, is fairly accurate but based on FBI documents, and shows that the radar used was able to track an object at  2,000 feet. But it also states that anything else came under serious question and no conclusions could be reached. But when Air Force documents were found (see documents linked below) the witness was found intoxicated, and when his height and speed figures were checked against the actual airliner they were wildly off.
