April 10, 1964; Merced, California (BB)
At 11:40 a.m. PST, NORAD advised that there were 6 to 12 unidentified flying objects at 30 miles east of Merced, California. Radar picked up 12 objects at altitudes 60,000 feet, 90,000 feet and higher elevations. A message sent to Air Staff said objects were following a 60 mile race-track pattern. F-106's were scrambled at Castle AFB. Pilots locked on to some of the objects but could not keep the lock. NORAD said they were sending two more aircraft with pilots in pressure suits.
