          SUBJECT:  UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECT

          DATE OF REPORT:  26 SEPTEMBER 1951

               Further investigation of sighting report from Fort Monmouth reveals
          that although the observing personnel state that they had no information
          of an unidentified flying object being sighted by two fighter pilots of
          this command on 10 September 1951 they were alerted to the possibility
          of unusual sightings occurring on their scope.

               The fact remains that one experienced observer was present and saw
          an object traveling more than 700 miles per hour on 11 September in the New York
          area.

              1.  All personnel listed in initial report from Ft. Monmouth were students, with
          the exception of Mr. Norman Meier.  Mr. Meier has been a qualified radar observer
          since 1942 and states he had no knowledge of a "flying saucer" report prior to ob-
          servation.  Further states observed target was not similar to any observation ever
          made by him.

               2.  Item listed in paragraph 2, initial Ft. Monmouth report, was later iden-
          tified as a balloon.

               3.  Radar sets at Ft. Monmouth were in first class mechanical condition.  How-
          ever, tests will be conducted during hours that sightings were made on 10 and
          11 September in order to check possibility of recurrence of targets and/or explan-
           ation for same.

               4.  At variance with paragraph 1 above, is fact that the Ft. Monmouth PIO
          called the radar section on the morning of 10 September asking "if they had seen
          anything unusual."  A negative reply was received by the PIO, but word spread
          throughout the student body that something unusual was going on.
