AFXOI FLYOBRPT 5-52
After 0555 hours, Capt. Casey Pierman, a
pilot, of Capital Airlines took off from Washington National
Airport in DC-4 airlines. After reaching 1200 feet altitude on a course
of 330 degrees, Capt. Pierman switched over from Tower Control to
Airways Traffic Control Center ATCC at Washington National Airport.
ATCC informed Capt. Pierman that their radar scope indicated 2 or 3
objects traveling at high speed and instructed Capt. Pierman to steer
the DC-4 290 degrees as to intercept the objects now 9 miles ahead of
the plane. During the next several minutes Capt. Pierman and his
co-pilot Charles Wheaton observed as many as 7 bluish-white
objects traveling at tremendous speeds.
A CIRVIS FLYOBRPT was made.
