RADCAT is a revitalized special project now being conducted jointly by NICAP & Project 1947 with the help and cooperation of the original compiler of RADCAT, Martin Shough, to create a comprehensive listing of radar cases with detailed documentation from all previous catalogues, including UFOCAT and original RADCAT.

U=Z Radar Case
Late Oct. to early Nov., 1954
United Kingdom


Fran Ridge:
Late October to early November, 1954; United Kingdom
Noon (approx). According to a War Office statement a few days after the events, radars in an undisclosed area of the UK registered "formations" of unidentified echoes on 6 occasions. The story was covered by numerous British and European newspapers. There were not just one but several radar stations that picked this up ­ a formation (more than 40 objects) that changed patterns as the sweeps occurred creating in sequence “U=Z”.
