U.S. Government UFO Document:
DATE: 3 Apr 52/
LOCATION: Benson, Arizona”

(Project Blue Book, U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C.)

Quote from the document (Page 2):

The excellent forethought of the instructor to take continual fixes on the object has eliminated the possibility of the object being an aircraft or balloon since no motion was observed. In addition, an investigation was made and it was determined that there were no balloons in the area.

It is possible that the object was a bright planet. This is doubtful, however, since a planet would appear to move some in 51 minutes.



The UFO incident was witnessed by four U.S. Air Force civilian pilots, according to the document.

The document contains a U.P. newspaper article (Page 4) titled “Air Force Men Sight Huge Flying Saucer.”

Quote from the 4 April 1952 United Press article:
“Two Air Force pilots said today they watched for an hour as a huge oval-shaped object, possibly five or six times the size of a B-29 bomber, hovered at about 55,000 feet above them.

Chick Logan and C. M. Jasper, both veteran flight commanders from Marana (Ariz.) Air Force Base, saw the object from the air.

Flight Instructor Paul Wilkerson, Tucson, and Skeet Taylor, owner of a local airport, said they saw it from the ground.

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base at Tucson said some B-36s were flying in the Benson area at an attitude of 40,000 feet.

Logan said, however, it did not have wings.

“The object was bright and shone like polished aluminium.”

Wilkerson said it was too large for a weather balloon.”
