UFO News Article:
“Engineer Charges Cover-Up On UFOs”

18 January 1979 
(The News and Courier, Charleston, South Carolina)

The News and Courier reports on the successful Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit William H. Spaulding (Director, Ground Saucer Watch) and GSW brought against the Central Intelligence Agency:

Quote from the article:
“ ‘We have five ex-intelligence officers who will testify to this coverup.’

Latest documents indicate that UFOs flew over U.S. nuclear installations of the Strategic Air Command on Nov. 7, 8 and 9, 1975, Spaulding said. Radar tracked the objects, and one was described in a military wire message as ‘a 100-foot-diameter sphere and appeared to have craters around the outside,’ he said.

One base reported it was ‘buzzed by a bright object the size of a car at an altitude of 1,000 to 2,000 feet.’

Each object eluded military jets but the Air Force wrote off the incidents as unauthorized overflights by unknown helicopters, Spaulding said, questioning whether helicopters could outrun supersonic fighters.”
