The U.S. Air Force RB-47 Stratojet UFO Encounter,
Gulf Coast Area, USA, 17 July 1957, Early Morning

A U.S. Air Force Boeing RB-47 reconnaissance Stratojet, equipped with electronic countermeasures (ECM) instruments and manned by six officers, was followed by an unidentified object for a distance of well over 700 miles and for a time period of more than one hour, as it flew from Mississippi, through Louisiana and Texas and into Oklahoma.

The RB-47 crew was one of the top crews in the Wing, according to Lieutenant Colonel Bruce Bailey, U.S. Air Force (Ret.).
Lt. Col. Bruce Bailey also relates his own UFO encounter that was similar to the RB-47 crew’s encounter.
