Subject: Feb. 13, 1957; Lincoln AFB, Nebraska Radar


The synopsis reads:
 
Objects were visually observed by three control tower operators and by the Director of Operations, who was in town to supervise a wing mission.
 
I find it interesting that UFOs are reported in the area during a time when the Bomb Wing was doing a mission.
 
It was this same bomb wing that was doing a simulated  atomic attack on London, England on August 13, 1956,  when UFOs were reported at RAF Lakenheath.  
On August 13, 1956, the 307th Bombardment wing flying the B-47 jet bomber participated in war games over England. The B-47 jet bombers were at the time stationed at Lakenheath Air Base, England.

Radar track provides height-finding data confirming extremely low altitude, roughly 2,000 ft, also estimated by ground visual observers. (Sparks)

3 July 1956, Lincoln AFB

15 B-47 aircraft departed Lincoln AFB on 3 July and arrived in the United Kingdom at Lakenheath, as scheduled. Due to a weather delay, the second and third waves of B-47's departed Lincoln two days later than the planned deployment date. The KC-97's deploying to Greenham-Common, were not so fortunate. Due to propeller difficulties they were delayed indefinitely.

28 July 1956, Lakenheath RAF Air Base
On Friday afternoon, Crew R-38 was involved in an aircraft landing accident in which all crewmembers were fatally injured. On board aircraft 53-4230 were the following officers and A&E technician: A/C Commander, Captain Russel R. Bowling; Co-Pilot, 2/Lt. Carroll W. Kalberg; Observer, 1/Lt. Micheal J. Selmo; A&E Technician, T/Sgt. John Ulrich. The aircraft was shooting touch and gos. On the fourth approach the aircraft porpoised, and a go around was attempted, but the right wing tip dragged and caused an explosive crash.
