This is apparently case #15 of Major Dewey Fournet’s ‘motions study’ UFOs cases as presented to the Robertson Panel in January of 1953, whereby he deduced that UFOs were guided by intelligence and the flight characteristics indicated that the intelligence was beyond ‘us.’ It is also case #33, on the official clearance list. of 41 formerly classified Air Technical Intelligence UFO reports cleared for Maj. Donald E. Keyhoe by Albert M. Chop, Air Force Press Desk.

At 3:13 p.m. eight military witnesses and radar confirmed the presence of two silver colored discs, estimated at 80' across, in the sky over Hamilton AFB in Marin County, California . The discs appeared to be dogfighting. They were joined by six other discs and formed a diamond formation. They sped away as USAF F-86 fighter jets were scrambled. The sighting lasted 75 minutes. This case is listed in the 1964 UFO Evidence, Section 11.”
