One question though, what is the number one in your top 100.
63. 45 references : RB-47 radar/visual incident (July 1957)
RB-47 radar/visual incident during a flight over Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma, South Central United States during the early hours of the morning of 17 July 1957.
This was Project Blue Book Case Number 4810.
This incident featured as the top incident in a documentary produced by Paul Kimball entitled “Best Evidence: Top 10 UFO Cases”, purportedly based on the results of a survey conducted by Paul Kimball in 2005/2006 of “a select group of the world’s leading UFO researchers”.
As part of a survey by the Fortean Times in 2007 of various researchers of the ten cases from 1947 onwards that interested them the most, ufologist Jerome Clark indicated he considered this incident to be “the most evidential”.
This incident has featured in the following:
- a list of cases produced by Stanton Friedman for the Fortean Times in 2007 as part of a survey of various researchers of the ten cases from 1947 onwards that interested them the most.
- a list by Don Berliner of “the top 10 cases of World Ufology” in an interview made available on the UFO UpDates discussion List on 14 January 2007.
- a list by Paul Kimball of his own nominations for the top 10 cases.
This incident is discussed on the ATS.com forums in Thread 12193.

Well, my Top 100 UFO Cases - Revealed! article lists the famous Kenneth Arnold sighting from 1947 as number one. However, that list is simply based on frequency of discussion in a sample of about 960 UFO books.
