Detailed reports and
Somewhere between July of
1965 and July of 1967; Minot AFB, North Dakota
Night (probably early morning). Minuteman missile
crewmember reported a launch in progress caused by a
UFO flyover at the 455th/91st Strategic Missile
Wing. The reporting person was at that time a
1st. Lieutenant and deputy commander that night.
Security personnel at a site east of them reported
on the PAS (Primary Alerting System) a bright
object hovering over some of the missile silos.
Signals from the UFO caused spurious indicators on
their consoles. All of the sites were reporting this
object and the signals which put the missiles in
launch mode. (see report below)
