April 7, 1949. March AFB, Riverside, Calif. (BBU)
Bet. 2:45 and 3:00 p.m. Air National Guard Lts. Reeser and Salter, pilots in a T-6 heading SE over March AFB's radio beacon at 7,000 ft, first saw about 1,000 ft below them for 4-5 secs a tumbling red and grey wingtip-tank-shaped object, smaller than a T-6, and then 4 white domed-disc parachute-shaped objects separated by about 1,000 ft each. They circled around and copilot saw the 4 white parachute shapes, no shroud lines, etc., and climbed to 9,000 ft for a better look but the objects disappeared to the E. (FOIA; FUFOR Index)
