Another invasion of "unidentified
objects"flying saaucers struck
the Washington area Tuesday night
and early today but no visual sightings
Civil Aeronautics Administration
headquarters at National Airport
said that from two to 10 of
the phantoms, moving at speeds
of between 30 and 45 miles an
hour, were seen on radarscopes
throughout the night.
The "blips" were also reported
on radar at nearby Andrews Air
Force Base where a plane went
up to an altitude of 15,000 feet
but returned because an overcast
made any sightings impossible.
At 3 a. m. (edt), the pilot of a
Nationalâ€”Capitol Airlines flight,
bound from Pittsburgh to Wash-
ington, asked the tower at National
Airport if any objects had been
reported in his area.
He was told that one was seen
on radar about 17 miles west of
Washington. He radioed, however,
that nothing was visible.
The blips were also reported on radar at nearby Andrews AFB, where
an aircraft was sent up to investigate but returned because of the overcast.
