UFO News Article:
“UFOs on radar denied”

18 November 1975
(Bangor Daily News, Maine)

Quote from the article:
“Lt. Robert Barca, assistant information officer said his office was not too sure where the information came from, but a recheck showed Loring’s radar screen did not track ‘the thing’ seen by several observers in the area before dawn Sunday.

Loring’s information officer, Maj. Richard F. Quimby, had said Sunday that a radar screen at the base had tracked ‘the thing,’ which was spotted and described Sunday by Caribou police, sheriff’s deputies, a U.S. Customs official in Limestone and a Royal Canadian Mounted Police constable.

‘Something must have been misconstrued,’ Barca said Monday. ‘We did some rechecking and we can’t find anyone who spotted it on radar.’ ”
