SUBJECT: Unusual Unidentified Radar Targets

At 1020Z Radar site F-2 made contact with an unusual target. The scope presented the target clearly but on a slant of 15-20 degrees instead of perpendicular to radii, the normal manner of presentation. The speed of the target was estimated at 1350 to 1500 knots. At 1030Z an F-94 was airborne and vectored to Nenana. The F-2 radar site lost the target prior to the F-94's arrival.

Later at 1200Z while the F-94 was approaching Ladd AFB, the radar operator picked up a target in the Nenana area. An intercept run was made by the F-94 from 24,000 yards to 200 yards with a good target on the radar scope. Radar contact was lost and no visual sighting was made by the pilot, Lt. C. E. Garret or the radar operator, Capt. V. D. Ramey.

On January 23, 1952, from 1020Z to 1140Z, the same F-94 (pilot, R. R. Diment: radar operator, C. A. Hayward) was sent on a mission to see if a target similar to that of 22 January could be found. At approximately 1050Z a radar contact was made at 20,000 yards. The F-94 was between Clear and Nenana at 18,000 feet. An intercept run was begun and followed through to 2700 yards, at which time the target disappeared. Later the F-94 was checked for radiation by a team with negative results.    <>
