The Springfield, Ohio, report was being called a hoax, for no obvious reason, on the last page of the report. The Lockbourne AFB report, the same day, is also outstanding and as in the Springfield case there were fighters scrambled. Neither of these reports are listed in the Project Blue Book Master Index. .

July 23, 1952, near Springfield, Ohio
At between 2005 and 2215, two lights, some described them as white globes, were seen high in the sky. Jet aircraft were seen near where the lights were seen and later it was learned that the 97th Fighter Squadron had scrambled some of its planes and they were investigating the incident.

At 2055, Major A. S. Griffin, Base Comptrollers Office, called in a report that while he was at the scout camp near Yellow Springs, Ohio, at almost dark, he had seen three lights high above the Springfield Municipal Airport. He watched the object through field glasses and he said there were two jets that appeared to be investigating.

Comments: Case not listed in Project Blue Book Master Index.
