Nuclear Connection Project
Malmstrom AFB has had several major "nuclear connection" type incidents. The first one on-record is the March 16, 1967 case where ten Titan missiles were put into a "no-go" situation when a UFO hovered over the base. This later incident involved one missile warhead and occurred during the October/November SAC base overflights of 1975. After the event at Malmstrom, and the UFO began to rise to about 1,000 feet, NORAD picked up the object on radar. Two F-106 jet interceptors were launched from Great Falls, Montana, and headed toward the sighting area. See report link below for details.
