December 3, 1953
North Truro, Mass.

Loren Gross:
At 11:07 p.m. December 3rd an Air Force fighter, call-sign "Mailbag Red," was diverted from combat air patrol to investigate a UFO over North Truro, Massachusetts.  Only a file card on the case exists in BLUE BOOK records. (I located a listing saying it was a ground radar unit and explained as an aircraft - Fran Ridge) (Source: pg. 58, UFOs: A History, 1953: AUG-DEC)
