Mr. Sherman E. Fein and his
Glad to meet you.
I do UFO research for a group called NICAP( www.nicap.org
under the direction
of Francis Ridge, and we have been working on
putting together chronologies of reports
of unidentified flying objects.
It was in doing these chronologies that we came across
the case at
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on July 24, 1951.
Most of our documents for these cases come from the
the USAF Project Blue Book most of which are available
Your case was evaluated as an Unidentified by Project
Statement of Cpl Sherman E. Fein
According to the report you were riding with Capt.
Charles Cobb at the time
of the sighting. Do you still remember him?
Over the years the Portsmouth, New Hampshire, area has
been a "hotbed"
for reports of UFOs.
Raymond Fowler writes in his book, Casebook of a
UFO Investigator, the area around southern New Hampshire has a
nuclear submarine base and a Strategic Air Command Base (Portsmouth
AFB, later called Pease AFB). He says that this area for the last 15
years has been one of the most active areas in the United States for
UFO activity…. In addition to the exttreme activity in 1965, 66, and
67….significant UFO activity also waas present in the early 60"s, the
Spring of 1971, the Fall of 1973, the Spring of 1974 and then again in
the Fall of 1975.
