7:57 a.m. local time. Post landing CIRVIS Report by a AEW&C aircraft. Radar Operator sighted five objects on his scope. Four of the objects were on a heading of 90 degrees and while the other object was heading of  (80 degrees?). All the objects were moving at a high rate of speed, and disappeared into sea clutter  Three minutes later, two objects appeared heading 70 degrees and moved across the scope and also disappeared into sea clutter. Speed of one of the objects was measured at 1800 knots over a distance of 200 NM. While these two objects were on the scope a single stationary object appeared. After remaining stationary for approx. two minutes it moved on a heading of 265 degrees at 60 knots and was lost in the sea clutter at 1610Z. The objects could only be painted with IFF on. The radar was an APS-95. (Dan Wilson)
