April 7, 1954; Fentress (3 miles SW of), Virginia (BBU)
3 p.m. USN pilot C. R. Allen flying F-6F for Fleet Training Center, Norfolk, Virginia, at 3,000 ft heading W near Fentress saw two strange saucer-shaped discs in close formation at 3,500 ft height about 15 miles away at about two miles NW of Lake Drummond heading NE, seen below and against cloud base of scattered cumulus clouds at 3,000-3,500 ft. Allen turned right to follow objects as they covered about 140° of arc maintaining about the same distance, disappearing near Cape Henry to the NE about 20 miles, covering 30 miles total in about 25-30 secs [3,600-4,300 mph].
