41. Panama canal Zone, Nov. 25-26, 1952. Two UFOs, tracked by defense radar, no visual sighting.
 
Two unidentified objects were flying in the Canal Zone area between 23O6Z on 25 November and 0449Z 26 November.  Estimated speed of objects
was 275 knots, with conventional maneuvers, flying between 1,000 and 23,000 feet altitude. Sightings were made by gun laying radar. Weather
was clear with visibility unlimited. Unsuccessful interception was attempted by two B-26s, one B-17 and one PBM.

The preparing officer knowns of no object which flies at 275 knots per hour, could remain in the Canal Zone area for nearly six hours, maneuver from 1,000 through 23,000 feet altitude, make no sound, and evade interception.
