Oct. 24, 1950; Oak Ridge, Tennessee
6:30 p.m. FBI documents show several visual sightings at Oak Ridge and a radar track at Knoxville.  An unidentified object appeared at 6:30 PM at an altitude of approximately 5,000 feet in the same general vicinity as the object observed by Fry (see FBI doc below).  The radar target disappeared at 7:20 p.m..  The complete radar report to the CIC investigator says that targets appeared at 6:23 p.m. moving over the restricted flight zone and at 6:26 a fighter was scrambled to the area of the targets but failed to see anything. This series of incidents was not listed among the original BB Unknowns.
