On the evening of July 3, 1947 Dan Wilmot, a respected business owner, and his wife were sitting on their front porch when they saw a bright saucer shaped object with glowing lights moving across they sky at 400-500 miles per hour. Dan Wilmot estimated that the unidentified flying object was about 20-25 feet across. The flying object appeared from the Southeast and disappeared to the Northwest. Dan Wilmot reported his unusual sighting to the Roswell Daily Record.
The statement is quoted from a newspaper in Oregon.

I was looking into radar possibly being the cause of the crash, and found quite a bit. But there alot to learn about radar before being able to make an intelligent post. But I'll give it a try sometime next week.
It seems the claims that the UFO was tracked is from the book The Truth About The UFO Crash At Roswell, by Kevin D. Randle and Donald R. Schmitt. And I guess Stanton Friedman also suggested some military experiment, but I don't know which book. Project 1947 is saying they didn't have very good radar capability at that in order to track it. So I'm a bit confused, and I have not read books by these authors. I will have to get them later.
Also, you suggested looking into FOIA docs, but my searches are not returning anything. Any suggestions?
how and where did you get a copy of that news paper? was it pricey?
