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.

Radar Tracks Object Filmed With 35 MM
July 14, 1952
Holloman AFB, New Mexico

July 14, 1952; Holloman AFB, New Mexico (BB)
At around 10:20 MST, unidentified objects were observed over the missile test range at Holloman AFB, during a Hughes Aircraft project mission. Two hundred feet of 35mm. film was taken of two maneuvering objects at a high elevation angle to the NNE. Two other witnesses that were watching the B-29 on the mission through 6 power binoculars saw an object cross in front of the B-29 with about the same size and apparent speed as the project F-86 would have, but the object was not the F-86 which overtook the B-29 shortly thereafter. Mr. H. R. Morris and Mr. Floyd Fannon, on X-Band radar for the project observed something on their  "A" scope which appeared like a jet going the opposite direction from the B-29.  A bright object was observed passing through the field of vision by an optical tracker using a 20 power monocular scope near the radar site. The object was observed above the B-29  and going the same general direction, but much faster. The "Pip" on the radar "A" scope on X-band modified SCR-584 was about the size and apparent speed as a jet fighter would give at 35,000 feet, and was observed for a few minutes. (Dan Wilson)
