"In June 1952 the Air Force was taking the UFO problem seriously. One of the reasons was that there were a lot of good UFO reports coming in from Korea. Fighter pilots reported seeing silver colored spheres or disks on several occasions, and radar in Japan, Okinawa, and in Korea had tracked unidentified targets."

Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, head of Project Blue book, in his book "The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects



Following on from the UFO reports during the Vietnam war thread, there also appears to exist a great number of military UFO reports from the Korean War (June 1950 - July 1953).

NASA's Richard Haines has written a book about the subject (reviewed below) and there are many other interesting reports such as soldiers being 'attacked' by a UFO and hit with beams of light and an unknown object being tracked on radar by fourteen ships.

I'm sure there are many other reports not covered here so if anyone knows of any more please feel free to post.

Advanced aerial devices reported during the Korean war / Richard F. Haines - foreword by Jacques Vallee






This is a presentation of data of 42 UFO sightings in or near Korea from 1950 through to 1954. Thirty one are official reports from American pilots taken from military records and ten are ground observations taken from Project Bluebook files. One is an interview, conducted thirty six years later with a GI who fired on a UFO in 1951. The descriptions of the events vary considerably in length and detail. The sighting reports are preceded by a brief description of both sides combat planes and capabilities.

UFO Reports:



Pilot sightings

Korea has a long history of UFO sightings. During the Korean War, both American and Korean pilots reported encounters with flying saucers. In March 1979, two Korean Air Force pilots participating in the Team Spirit joint military exercise reported seeing a "very bright, lighted plane." Nothing appeared on their radar screens.

The pilots alleged that the ship had flashing lights on the sides and what looked like a "burning furnace" in the middle. It then reportedly shot sideways, stopped, and then moved rapidly upwards and out of sight.

Pilot UFO incident:


30th May 1952 - Chorwon ,Korea.





Several U.S. soldiers saw a bright UFO that looked like a falling star,except that it stopped falling and began to climb again.
It then moved northeast at about 150mph, reversed course twice,then climbed at a forty five degree angle and faded from sight. One guard reported a pulsating sound from the object. An Air Intelligence Information Report stated that an F-94 attempted to intercept this object. The pilot described it as round,of unknown size, "brilliant white" and leaving no exhaust. It undertook clearly evasive maneuvers and pulled away from the F-94 at thirty thousand feet.
According to this intelligence report,"the object possessed a superior speed,superior climbing ability,and was able to turn equally as well as the F-94"





ACUFOE AIRCRAFT / UFO ENCOUNTER.

First the object was sighted by ground witnesses. The pilot of a F-94 tracked on his radar and saw a round brilliant bluish-white light. According to the pilot's statement: "On May 31st, 1952, the F-94 descended in a port turn to intercept an unidentifed object 6,000 ft below on a 90 degrees turn course and an altitude of 8,000 ft. The UFO began a port climb at the same time to intercept the descending F-94 and accomplished a maneuver which silhouetted the F-94 against the light of dawn. The F-94 turned on afterburner and tried two quartering head on passes with the UFO resulting in neither being able to get astern of the other. The pilot's maneuvers ensued to 3,000 ft where more passes were exchanged for a few minutes. The UFO then increased his speed to an estimated 400 knots on a 45 degrees heading and began pulling away from the F-94. When last seen, the UFO had seemingly increased his speed to approximately 450 knots where upon the F-94 gave up pursuit at 3:55 and returned to base."

Pilot UFO Incident:


UFO Report - Korean War


1952 - Grid area CV 4, Korea. Information came via Japan H.Q. "CV 4359". At 6:08 a.m. a USAF pilot of the 18th Fighter-Bomber Group sighted a black coin-shaped object about seven times wider than it was thick, with an estimated diameter of 15-20 feet, that made an irregular descent. It flew at a fixed altitude for 6-7 seconds, approached the pilot's plane, then disappeared into a cloud.

Korean War Battlefield UFO Encounter.



UFO hits soldiers with light beam - Korean War,1951.

Testimony:




Bizarre Craft Hit Soldiers With Debilitating Light Beam.

"This event that I am about to relate to you is the truth, so help me God. It happened in the early Spring of 1951 in Korea. We were in the Army infantry, 25th Division, 27th Regiment, 2nd Battalion, 'Easy' Company. We were in what is known on the military maps as the Iron Triangle, near Chorwon.

"It is night. We are located on the slopes of a mountain, below [which] there is a Korean village. Previously we have sent our men into this village to warn the populace that we are going to bombard it with artillery. On this night, we were doing just that. We had aerial artillery bursts coming in.

"We suddenly noticed on our right-hand side what appeared to be a jack-o-lantern come wafting down across the mountain. And at first no one thought anything about it. So we noticed that this thing continued on down to the village to where, indeed, the artillery air bursts were exploding. It had an orange glow in the beginning. We further noticed that this object was [so] quick that it could get into the center of an airburst of artillery and yet remain unharmed.

"[The] time element on this, I would say, [was] anywhere from, oh, forty-five minutes to an hour all told.

"But then this object approached us. And it turned a blue-green brilliant light. It's hard to distinguish the size of it; there's no way to compare it. The light was pulsating. This object approached us.

"I asked for and received permission from Lt. Evans, our company commander at that time, to fire upon this object, which I did with an M-1 rifle with armor-piercing bullets. And I did hit it. It must have been metallic because you could hear when the projectile slammed into it.

"Now why would that bullet damage this craft if the artillery rounds didn't? I don't know, unless they had dropped their protective field around them, or whatever. But the object went wild, and the light was going on and off. It went off completely once, briefly. And it was moving erratically from side to side as though it might crash to the ground. Then, a sound -- we had heard no sound previous to this -- the sound of, like, diesel locomotives revving up. That's the way this thing sounded.

"And then, we were attacked. We were swept by some form of a ray that was emitted in pulses, in waves that you could visually see only when it was aiming directly at you. That is to say, like a searchlight sweeps around and... you would see it coming at you. Now you would feel a burning, tingling sensation all over your body, as though something were penetrating you.

"So the company commander, Lt. Evans, hauled us into our bunkers. We didn't know what was going to happen. We were scared. These are underground dugouts where you have peep holes to look out to fire at the enemy. So, I'm in my bunker with another man. We're peeping out at this thing.It hovered over us for a while, lit up the whole area with its light, and then I saw it shoot off at a 45 degree angle, that quick, just there and gone. That quick. And it was as though that was the end of it.

"But, three days later the entire company of men had to be evacuated by ambulance. They had to cut roads in there and haul them out. They were too weak to walk. They had dysentery. Then subsequently, when the doctors did see them, they had an extremely high white blood cell count which the doctors could not account for.

"Now in the military, especially the Army, each day you file a company report. We had a confab about that. Do we file it in the report or not? And the consensus was 'No.' Because they'd lock every one of us up and think we were crazy. At that time, no such thing as a UFO had ever been heard of, and we didn't know what it was.

UFO tracked on radar by fourteen ships.



The Hidden Reports


The Navy Korean Case. Certified by the following NICAP Board members: Reverend Albert Bailer, Dr. Earl Douglass, Mr. Frank Edwards, Colonel R. B. Emerson, Professor Charles A. Maney, and Rear Admiral H. B. Knowles.



It was a night in '51. Under lowering clouds, a United States task force of fourteen ships was cruising near Korea. Down in the Combat Information Center of a CVE-class carrier, intercept officers and radar men were keeping a routine watch.

Suddenly a strange blip appeared on the CIC radarscopes. Some unknown machine, larger than carrier aircraft, was circling the fleet.

In minutes, Navy interceptors were boring up into the clouds that hid the intruder. At first, the CIC men had thought it was some new Red aircraft spotting the fleet by radar. But an hour passed with neither an attack nor message to bring enemy bombers. Even before this the CIC men knew, from the object's speed and maneuvers, it had to be a UFO.

As the hours went on, fresh pilots replaced the first group. Again and again, flying by instruments in the misty dark, they risked collision for a look at the unknown craft. But the UFO stayed deep in the clouds.

Down in the CIC, puzzled intercept men watched the mysterious "target." What could explain the hours of circling up in the overcast? Could "they" see through those tight-packed clouds by some unknown device—or a different kind of vision? What was behind this long surveillance—curiosity, or something more ominous?

Near the end of the seventh hour, another squadron was launched. Abruptly, the UFO stopped circling. As the tense CIC men watched, it swung in behind the nearest Navy plane.

"Target joining up on wingman!" the lead pilot reported.

"Close in for visual on target!" ordered the CIC, fearing an attack on the wingman.

Though the clouds made it almost hopeless, the leading pilot turned. Swiftly, the UFO speeded up, leaving the plane behind. In less than ten minutes, the radarscopes showed it was two hundred miles away.

The signed report later certified by Board members was given to NICAP by one of the pilots involved, now a lieutenant commander on duty in this country. The unknown machine, officially logged as a UFO, was tracked by radar operators on all fourteen ships. Its long surveillance of the task force remained a mystery.

This is an interesting post. I knew about the Foo fighters of WWII and knew about some Korean sightings, but most of this is new for me. Pity these things don't appear in Afghanistan, every soldier these days seems to have a digital camera.

What strikes me is that craft seemed fairly primitive compared to what is reported these days. Were they an younger alien race of explorers/visitors that were driven off for some or other reason (perhaps by a more advanced species)?

Deltaalphanovember, thanks for the reply - there are two more combat reports below and the speeds and flight characteristics of the objects do sound quite strange.




UFO US Military Reports, Korea, 1952:


USAF AIRCRAFT ENCOUNTER UFOS OVER NORTH KOREA, MAY 15, 1952:
On May 15, 1952, U.S. Air Force planes chased UFOs over North Korea. The incidents appear to have taken place in the lakes district south of Changsong-ni and north of the Nangnim Mountains. Here are the actual combat reports for both UFO encounters.



Air Intelligence Information Report 52-79 dated 28 May 1952 describes a brief but interesting encounter with a UFO by two 'very reliable' pilots of the 51st Fighter-Interceptor Wing, 25th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron. The two planes were on Mission C/51-02 flying wing positions in Maple flight. Lt. McCarthy was the first pilot to see the strange object. He had completed 27 combat missions. The other unnamed pilot was the Interceptor Group Operations Officer with 56 combat missions completed. Following is a summary of key events:

A silvery oval-shaped object larger than a MiG jet airplane was seen at the nine o'clock position below the two F-86E jet airplanes at an estimated altitude of from 8,000 to 10,000 feet and about twenty miles (32 kilometers) away. The single-seat airplanes were on a heading of 280 degrees; the object continued on in a straight flight path and disappeared at about the three o'clock position. While flying at an altitude of 30,000 feet and an airspeed of 500 knots, both eye- witnesses saw the object for only 3 to 5 seconds and noted that the object travelled at an estimated 1,200 to 1,500 mph in a 'rolling maneuver'.
The reported weather (at 8 p.m. on May 15, 1952) was a medium haze with visibility of 10 to 12 miles.




The second report was at 6:35 p.m. on May 15, 1952:



Air Intelligence Information Report No. 52-81 describes an encounter between the pilot of an F-51 propellor - driven fighter bomber and a silver object estimated to be about 50 feet in diameter. The aircraft was assigned to the 18th Fighter Bomber Group. The pilot had flown 76 combat missions in World War II. He was... flying on a heading of 180 degrees at an altitude of 9,000 feet; he first noticed the object at the one o'clock position. 'By the time I called the object in as a bogie, it had moved to the 3 o'clock position and started a steep climb, which I assumed was the beginning of a loop, but at the vertical position in the loop, the object moved forward in its original course of travel (360 degrees) and wavered momentarily and then descended and disappeared into the haze which reached an altitude of approximately 7,000 to 8,000 feet.' While the (F-51) airplane was traveling at only 240 mph, the UFO was estimated to be moving at 1,000 mph, first to the east and then changing to the north. It was at approximately the same altitude as the airplane during the 15-to-25-second-long sighting.

Cheers.

There was a good case that happened in Iraq a couple of years ago where some US guys saw some amber/orange type ufo orbs flying in from the east. Can't remember if there was footage, it may have been filmed with their NV equipment. I would be very interested to hear any sightings you SA guys had in Angola etc over the past years

Pilot Report:



Jan. 29, Wonsan, Korea (BBU)

11:00 pm. 30 miles SW of Wonsan, USAF crew of B-29 flying at above 20,000 ft and 148 knots (170 mph) ground speed saw an orange luminous rotating and pulsating 3 ft sphere [or disc?], with blue flame halo, follow the B­29 at a distance of about 600 ft at the 8 o'clock position advancing forward to 9 o'clock then falling back to 8 o'clock [at one point almost withdrawing from view then returning?].

(LIFE Incident 9; Project 1947; Loren Gross)






January 29, 1952, 30 miles WSW of Wonson, Korea

Three members of a B-29 crew observed a light orange colored sphere, 3 foot in diameter, flying a parallel course to the B-29. Time of the sightings was 2300 local time. Object seen for one minute.

At 2324 local time, members of another B-29 crew observed an identical object near Sunchon, Korea. Object seen for five minutes

The observers stated that they had never seen any similar objects before.

Radar/Visual UFO Report:



The Case of the USS Philippine Sea






February 2, 1952 - off the east coast of Korea

Dr. J. Allen Hynek:

On February 2, 1952 radar operator aboard the aircraft carrier Philippine Sea picked up an unidentified high-speed UFO off the east coast of Korea. The object was first detected at a distance of twenty-five miles and when it closed to twenty miles it made a wide turn to the east, opening to a course directly away from the carrier. As excerpted from a message to the Commander Naval Forces Far East sent by the Philippine Sea, the report on the speed and unusual separation into two objects of this UFO contact stated: "Measured speed 10 miles per-minute (600 MPH) for first minute, I5 miles per minute (900 MPH) for second minute, 30 miles per minute (1800 MPH) for third minute. Opened as 2 contacts 5 to 12 miles apart."

Three signal observers on the deck of the Philippine Sea also sighted the UFO visually and reported independently to the bridge that they could detect three exhaust flames. The observers stated that the trail appeared to them as aircraft exhaust during the time the object reversed its course. However, no aircraft at that time was capable of the incredible speeds attained by the UFO and no conventional aircraft were reported in the area. The position of the object, sighted at seventeen miles from the carrier, was also held on the radar scope at that time. The estimated altitude of the object was 52,000 feet, and it faded from the radar scope at 110 miles.
During the time it was in view, the coast of Korea and the island of Uflung Do were visible at a distance of twenty miles, and an escorting destroyer was visible on the scope 2,000 yards from the carrier.

The comment of the Intelligence Officer who prepared the report on this case was as follows:

"A thorough debriefing was made of the radar operator. Personnel stated that the operator was very intelligent, efficient, and cooperative. Operator was cognizant of capabilities and limitations of the radar equipment and made careful plots, checking constantly. At the time contact was closing, he queried the aircraft controller and when it was determined that it was not a friendly aircraft, the general alarm was sounded. The three minutes of careful plotting were made after the object had turned and was heading away from the station. Operator was sure of the accuracy of the plots for the three minutes, and was adamant that the speeds shown were approximately correct."

A letter classified SECRET was sent on April 8, I952, by the Commander Naval Operations, Far East, to the Chief of Naval Operations, enclosing a track chart of the UFO and stating in part: “This is probably the first instance of a visual and radar contact on a high-speed aerial target being made simultaneously in the Far East.”

Ufoorbhunter, thanks for the reply and I agree it does sound similar to some of today's
reports.

Heres another strange 'orange oval-shaped object' report only this one was said to be approximately 50 to 100 feet in length, 50 foot thick and flying at a very fast rate of speed.



March 4, 1952, Sea of Japan

March 4, 15 miles W of Ashiya AFB, Japan (BBU)

10:35 a.m. USAF C-54 crew with 53rd Troop Carrier Sq saw a bright orange oval object at 10,000 ft.






March 4, 1952, Sea of Japan, (BBU)

The pilot and crew of a USAF C-54 aircraft of the 53rd Troop Carrier Squadron observed an bright orange oval-shaped object approximately 50 to 100 feet in length and 50 foot thick flying at a terrific speed at an estimated altitude of 10,000 feet. The object was observed for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

Pilot: 1st Lt. E.J. Weed
Co-pilot: 2nd Lt. T.G. Camidge
Engineer: S/Sgt. T. Dendy

Lt. Weed further stated that the object was definitely not a jet aircraft.

Air Force Pilot witnesses shiny disc shaped object over Japan, 1952:



Subject: Brigham/T-6 Watch Disc Pass F-84


Newsclipping



An officially confirmed sighting by an Air Force pilot on March 29,1952, in the vicinity of Misawa, Japan, is one example. Lt. David C. Brigham, flying a T-6 as target plane for an intercept exercise by two F-84 jet fighters, saw a small, shiny disc about eight inches in diameter make a pass at one of the F-84s.
It flew a pursuit curve and closed rapidly. Just as it would have flown into Brigham's fuselage it decelerated to his airspeed, almost instantaneously In doing so, it flipped up on its edge at an approximate 90-degree hank. It fluttered within two feet of his fuselage for perhaps two or three seconds. Then it pulled away around his starboard wing, appearing to flip once as it hit the slipstream behind his wing-tip fuel tank. Then it passed him, crossed in front, and pulled up abruptly appearing to accelerate, and shot out of sight in a steep, almost vertical climb. An unusual flight characteristic was a slow, fluttering motion. It rocked back and forth in 40-degree banks, at about one-second intervals throughout its course.

Another UFO incident over Misawa from Chitose Air Force Base - December 29, 1952




Colonel witnesses UFO whilst flying F-84G Thunderjet






Colonel Donald J. M. Blakeslee, 27th Fighter Escort Wing, while flying in an F-84G at 27,000 feet in altitude observed an object described as a rotating cluster of lights colored white, green and red. Colonel Blakeslee climbed to 35,000 feet - at which point he was level with the unknown object.

Interception Undertaken. An interception of the object was undertaken with negative results. The object appeared to increase its speed and vanished in 30 seconds. The object was observed for approximately seven minutes. At 2000 hours Item, Colonel Blakeslee caught sight of the object for the second time. This observation lasted for five minutes. The general area of these sightings was the extreme northern portion of the Island of Honshu, Japan.

Interesting statement from Lieutenant Commander M. C. Davies.




"My background is a Naval Aviator with approximately 4000 hours. At the time of the incident, I was deployed with an Anti-Submarine Squadron aboard a CVE-class carrier. I was assigned Air Crew Training Officer and prior to deployment had attended CIC Air Controller School at Point Loma, also Airborne Air Controller School and Airborne Early Warning School both located at NAS, San Diego.
It was at night. I was riding with a radar operator which I often did to check on their proficiency. We were flying at 5000 feet, solid instruments, with our wingman flying a radar position about 3 miles astern and slightly to our right or left. The target, which was slightly larger than our wingman, I picked up on our scope, had been circling the fleet; it left the fleet and joined up on us a position behind our wingman, approximately the same position he held on us.
I reported the target to the ship and was informed that the target was also held on the ship's radars, 14 in number, and for us to get a visual sighting if possible. This was impossible because of the clouds. The target retained his relative position for approximately 5 minutes and then departed in excess of one thousand miles per hour. He departed on a straight course and was observed to the maximum distance of my radar which was two hundred miles.
Upon completion of my flight, an unidentified flying object report was completed, at which time I was informed that the object was held on ship's radars for approximately seven hours."

Interesting article from the Korea Herald:


UFOs No Strangers To Korea

By Burke Josslin
Korea Herald Staff Reporter


Korea has a long history of UFO sightings. During the Korean War, both American and Korean pilots reported encounters with flying saucers. In March 1979, two Korean Air Force pilots participating in the Team Spirit joint military exercise reported seeing a "very bright, lighted plane." Nothing appeared on their radar screens.

The pilots alleged that the ship had flashing lights on the sides and what looked like a "burning furnace" in the middle. It then reportedly shot sideways, stopped, and then moved rapidly upwards and out of sight.

Listed Korean UFO sightings (pdf)

What a fantastic list, look at all the "chinese lanterns" that got reported. I noticed alot of what I assume is military UFO's been reported, and as the years go on they get more advanced which to me makes sence for them been military and not et. however the orange balls have never changed, they are allways the same, same shape, colors, maneuvers...

I seen a orange orb/light. it wasnt a chinese larntern. is it man made? is it et? is it a natural phenomenon? I dont know, but id love to find out.

Are the Hessdalen Lights, Foo fighters & Orange orbs linked? is the first a natural phenomenon and the other 2 unknown?

What a great post.




Could "they" see through those tight-packed clouds by some unknown device—or a different kind of vision? What was behind this long surveillance—curiosity, or something more ominous?


Surveillance. Perhaps something more ominous. However, I don't believe the real threat are UFOs or the intelligence behind them.

Judging by the actions of the humans in the war, and the UFOs-- I would say the data shows the humans to be more dangerous.

The Korean war is a misunderstanding between communism and capitalism. Both concepts can be reconciled into one by an intelligent species. There is no reason to kill eachother. We have much more in common than we do differences. These are the things we should focus on. These are the things that should be taught to the next generation of human beings who weren't even alive when these horrible conflicts took place. Instead we teach the hatred and mistrust to the next generation...

So I'm guessing for the context of this thread..surveillance. There was a great man by the name of Albert Einstein who once said, "Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding."

Just like "the aliens" understand space/time better than Einstein himself, they also have likely achieved understanding of peace.

Thanks for the replies, here's the full version of Dr Richard Haines study into the Korean UFO reports on free E-book format issued on the 13th anniversary of the NICAP web site:



ADVANCED AERIAL DEVICES

reported

DURING THE KOREAN WAR

Richard F. Haines







The period covered in this book, namely the first half of the Decade of the Fifties, should be of special interest to such readers. Dr. Haines has taken the intriguing and unusual vantage point of the Korean War, a conflict that placed thousands of Americans in a faraway land. Will we find that their experiences with flying disks of unknown origin matched those of the folks back home? With the enormous detection and tracking power at their disposal, what did the U. S. Armed Forces learn about the elusive objects? The answers are clearly important for our understanding of the overall phenomenon..

Many of the cases he cites are fascinating, but the reader will want to study with special care the sighting near Chorwon in the Spring of 1951 mentioned in Chapter Two, an event in which an entire artillery unit fired at a hovering disk displaying remarkable properties. In my opinion it is one of the most significant reports in the entire literature because of the rich combination of physical and physiological facts it provides.

Many other periods in the tumultuous history of UFO reports should be analyzed in the manner used here by Dr. Haines. Now that he has shown us how to conduct such an analysis, it is my hope that others will undertake this interesting and rewarding task.

Intriguing marine UFO encounter from Korean war vet on board the Canadian Destroyer H.M.C.S. Iroquois:


KOREAN WAR VET TELLS OF UFO ENCOUNTER AT SEA


..Suddenly one of these objects appeared at close range on our port bow at a low elevation. It was disc shaped and consisted of a very bright light with black windows running around the whole side which was visible to us. It maintained perfect station on us for at least fifteen minutes. I scanned the object with binoculars attempting to see into the windows but saw nothing. I counted the windows and recall there were about two dozen.
