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.

Three UFOs Flew Over Area, Tracked on Radar
October 9, 1953
Dutch Islands, Harwich area, United Kingdom


Dan Wilson:
October 9, 1953; United Kingdom
(16:30 hours = 4:30 PM local) Three unidentified objects flying east to west flew over the Harwich area and were tracked on radar (track X.481). The objects then returned to the Continent (Europe).  The objects were first seen near the Dutch Islands. The track was initially plotted as 3 at 36,000 feet, was reduced to 2 at 36,000 feet on closer range and again shown 3 at 32 - 34,000 feet on the outward flight. Ground speeds on the approach were 375 knots and increasing to 420 knots on the short leg over the U.K. and 490 knots on the return. (Documents from AIR 20/7390 M.O.D.) (Dan Wilson)
