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.

Four Dart-Shaped Objects / Tracked On Gnd Radar ???
June 5, 1969
St. Louis, Missouri


Fran Ridge:
June 5, 1969; St. Louis, MO
4:00 p.m. This radar/visual was written off as a meteor and observed by three air crews. Four dart-shaped objects witnessed by American Airlines Flight 112,  a 707 heading east at 39,000 feet, a United Airlines flight eight miles to the rear at 37,000 feet, and a National Guard jet four miles further at 41,000 feet. The NICAP source claims the objects were tracked on FAA radar at St. Louis. The pilot of the National Guard plane later claimed the UFO formation had approached his craft almost "directly ahead" before altering its course abruptly and ascending quickly at the last moment.  (NICAP UFOI Feb 1972)

Dan Wilson:
None of the PBB documents (69 pages) mention any radar sighting--only visual. However, the NICAP investigation and NARCAP review found two radar paints.
