Several sightings in lower Michigan, one by a Capital Airlines pilot, at the same time of this radar anomalie. See MISC-PBB2-829 and other links below. MAXW-PBB9-589 says pilot had also heard that the tower had intercepted a message saying that a radar, whose location was classified, had picked up an unidentified return 20 miles east of the station and he assumed that this was what they were asking him about over the phone.
