UFO News Article:
“ ‘Saucers’ Stir Air Defenses”

2 August 1952
(The Tuscaloosa News, Tuscaloosa-Northport, Alabama)

This AP article is a longer version than the article (“Disk Reports Keep Defense Center Busy”) I reported about on 10 April 2016.

Quote from the article:
“ ‘For the past two weeks,’ the ADC reported, ‘Headquarters has received a number of reports of unidentified airborne objects in its area through the normal detection channels of the ADC.’

Meantime the ‘flying saucers’ have popped up in Korea and Japan.

A Canadian destroyer recently reported sighting two such objects and recorded them on its radar, it was learned in Seoul today.

A Navy report said 40 officers and crew members of the destroyer Crusader saw the ‘saucers’ the night of July 10, all had the familiar qualities of the puzzling flying discs.

A second report a day or two later dismissed the radar find as the planet Jupiter. One officer commented, however: ‘Jupiter doesn’t come in pairs and it is several million miles out of range of our radar.’ ”,2563341
