“Congressman Has Written An Official Letter

30 July 2019
(The Drive, U.S.A.)

U.S. Congressman and pastor Mark Walker (Republican) has asked Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer for more details about what the U.S. Navy is doing to record and asses unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) sightings, Joseph Trevithick writes.

It is very refreshing to see that a politician is taking the UFO phenomenon seriously.

Kudos to Mark Walker for doing a great job.

UFO News Article:
“MYSTERIOUS OBJECT SEEN OVER TAUNTON”


26 May 1962
(Taunton Courier, and Western Advertiser, UK)

Source: ufonewspaper.blogspot.com

The whole article:
“What was the object an airline pilot saw in the sky over Taunton on Monday? He is wondering whether it was a flying saucer.

Captain Gordon Pendleton was flying a Viscount airliner from Cork to Brussels when he saw the object.

‘I have never seen anything like it,’ he said. ‘It passed nearly 3,000 feet underneath me. I have always been sceptical about flying saucers.

‘If it had been a plane I should have seen the wings. It didn’t appear to have any.’

None of the 60 passengers, nor the two stewardesses saw the object.

The object was also seen by the plane’s first officer, Peter Murray, who described it as ‘large, brown and irregularly shaped.’ ‘It was smaller than a Viscount and travelling at more than 500 miles an hour,’ he said.

Captain Pendleton’s report was flashed from London Airport to the Air Ministry, where a spokesman later said it was being investigated.

Mr. Roy Julyan, chief air traffic controller at Filton, Bristol, aerodrome said: ‘There was a lot of cloud about, and at the height the thing was reported, no one would have seen it from the ground. I don’t believe in flying saucers, but there must be something in what the pilot has said.’ ”

The UFO incident occurred on 21 May 1962.

Wikipedia article: “Winnemucca Air Force Station”:


Quote from the Wikipedia article:
Winnemucca Air Force Station (ADC ID: M-127, NORAD ID: Z-127) is a closed United States Air Force General Surveillance Radar station. It is located 3.1 miles (5.0 km) north-northwest of Winnemucca, Nevada. It was closed in 1968.

History

The station was activated on 8 June 1955 after the 658th Aircraft Control and Warning Squadron was moved to the new station on 1 February 1956 by the 28th Air Division. Operational status was finally achieved by the 658th AC&W Squadron in 1956. The site used an AN/FPS-3 radar, and initially the station functioned as a Ground-Control Intercept (GCI) and warning station. As a GCI station, the squadron's role was to guide interceptor aircraft toward unidentified intruders picked up on the unit's radar scopes.
By 1959 this radar had been joined by a pair of AN/FPS-6B height-finder radars. In 1960 the AN/FPS-3 was replaced by an AN/FPS-20 search set. At the end of 1961 this search set had been upgraded into an AN/FPS-66. During 1961 Winnemucca AFS joined the Semi Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) system, initially feeding data to DC-21 at Stead AFB, Nevada. After joining, the squadron was re-designated as the 658th Radar Squadron (SAGE) on 1 March 1961. The radar squadron provided information 24/7 the SAGE Direction Center where it was analyzed to determine range, direction altitude speed and whether or not aircraft were friendly or hostile.”

UFO Report:
“The 1962 UFO Chronology”


Created: 27 April 2006
Updated: 26 March 2017
(NICAP.org)

Quote from the UFO report:
“This is a chronology of UFO incidents for 1962. Most notable was the reported crash of a UFO on April 18 near Las Vegas, Nevada. A high speed brilliant maneuverable object was tracked by radars and sighted visually across the continent by numerous military and civilian witnesses. Next was the NE New Jersey mini-flap of Sept. 15-28. Across the Hudson River from New York City, was the scene of a definite flurry of sightings of UFOs, with the heaviest concentration in the Oradell-Hawthorne area. In October (18-29) the Cuban Missile Crisis occurred. It was the closest the world has ever come to a nuclear war. Right in the middle of this crisis an F-106, armed with nuclear-tipped missiles, was scrambled from Palermo AFB to intercept a UFO over New York.

The Air Force put its first ten Minuteman ICBMs on operational alert at Malmstrom AFB, Montana, in October 1962. Deployment proceeded at an equally furious pace, and within 5 years (the 1967 UFO sighting wave) 1,000 of the solid-fuel missiles stood poised in their silos.

Our thanks for these chronologies must go to our documentation team: Rebecca Wise (Project Blue Book Archive), Dan Wilson (archive researcher), and Brad Sparks (Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns). Last, but not least, our thanks to Jean Waskiewicz who created the online NICAP DBase (NSID) that helped make it possible to link from the cases to the reports themselves.
