July 20, 1952, Washington, D.C.
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.
