U.S. Air Force and civilian radar experts know enough about temperature inversion to be sure that it doesn't explain the strange objects they've seen on their scopes in Washington, and in other places. And the official Air Force gun - camera photos reproduced here for the first time back them up
BY DONALD E. KEYHOE
In a new investigation of the flying saucer, TRUE Magazine has secured Air Force confirmation of these important facts:
1. Since 1947, hundreds of unidentified aerial objects have been tracked by radar operators of the Air Force, Navy and Civil Aeronautics Administration.
2. More than 300 times, Air Force interceptor planes have chased mysterious lights and unidentified objects revealed by radar scopes.
3. Strange round objects have shown on interceptors gun camera pictures and on photographs from the ground at a missile testing range.
4. The "temperature inversion" or mirage answer to radar sightings widely publicized by Dr. Donald H. Menzel of Harvard has failed to satisfy Force investigators because he has not attempted to explain any specific "saucer" cases in official files.

Wow. Thank you Karl! That thread was a fascinating read. Honestly, I had never heard of that report before. Granted, the video doesn't provide anything regarding the ability to analyze actual data from that far back, but it does contain plenty of evidence allowing us to speculate that this event really happened. We only have reports of drawings (which aren't provided in the video) and eye witness testimony. Either way, it's another addition to the collection of mounting evidence attempting to prove the existence of ETs. I appreciate the contribution! May the search continue...
Edit: I did a bit more research on this subject. It's actually a great story, whether factual or not. There's a lot more interpretation behind this event than most historical sightings. Thanks again, Karl.
