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.

B-52 On Flight Line Tracks Seven Targets
September, 1959
Westover AFB, Mass.


Fran Ridge:
Sept., 1959, Westover AFB, Mass.
About midnight. There were seven objects on the screen. One large round object and six smaller ones, three on each side and to the rear forming a "V" formation. They were coming from the north and were headed toward Westover. At about 150 miles away and in the center of thescreen, three of the smaller ones appeared to move up and join the other three indicating a banking movement. Then they made a 180 degree turn and followed exactly the same path off the screen in a northerly direction. The exact speed is not available, but it was far greater than any known aircraft. About five minutes later, they returned and followed the same pattern. S/Sgt Cordell thought it may had been the radar set so he boarded another B-52 and once again observed the same identical procedure. All of the objects were round in shape and kept a close formation to the "mother object. After the third time the objects came around, they left the radar screen in a northerly direction and did not return. Total time consumed in observation, about one-half hour.
