Jan. 16, 1957; NW of Fort Worth, Texas (BBU)
8:00 p.m. CST. Two B-25 aircraft within a few miles of each other observed one round object alternating bright and dim white light and appeared to give off sparks. The object was the apparent size of a grapefruit held at arm's length and maneuvered vertically and laterally at very high speed. A B-25 aircraft was dispatched to search. After four hours negative results.
This case was originally listed as both an AVCAT & EMCAT entry. In the documentation we could find NO information on any effects on radios and compasses.And the Blue Book sighting listing showed this case as "Insufficient Data".
