UFO News Article:
“Air Force Denies Saucer Cover-Up”

30 March 1966
(Spokane Daily Chronicle, Washington)

Quote from the article:
“The Air Force said today it has an open mind about unidentified flying objects – UFO’s – and makes no attempt to hush talk about flying saucers.

Retired Marine Major Donald E. Keyhoe, head of a group called National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena, told newsmen this week the Pentagon has a top level policy of discounting all UFO reports. He said the Air Force over the years has used ridicule to discredit sightings.

Project Blue Book has been unable to explain the 646 other UFO incidents and of these merely says: “The description of the object or its motion cannot be correlated with any known object or phenomena.”

I reported about a longer version of the Associated Press article on 29 August 2010:

“UFO Project Blue Book On Display”

19 July 1976
(The Spartanburg Herald, South Carolina)

Quote from the article:
“A chunk of burned something, a piece of brass tube and a vast array of reports and photos collected in the investigation of unidentified flying objects have gone on display at the National Archives.

They are the records of Project Blue Book, the Pentagon’s systematic evaluation of UFOs, and are being made available for the first time to the public.”

Wikipedia article: “Iceland Defense Force”:

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“The Iceland Defense Force (IDF) was a military command of the United States Armed Forces from 1951 to 2006. The IDF, created at the request of NATO, came into existence when the United States signed an agreement to provide for the defense of Iceland, which did not, and does not, have its own unified defense force.

The IDF was formally headquartered at Naval Air Station Keflavík, though its base was actually at Miðnesheiði near Keflavík. Commander, Iceland Defense Force was a U.S. Navy Rear Admiral with three other titles and roles: Commander, Iceland Sector ASW Group (CTG-84.1), Commander, Fleet Air Keflavik, and NATO Island Command Iceland. Commander Fleet Air Keflavik (COMFAIRKEF) was the senior Navy command in Iceland, responsible for the operational readiness of Navy units assigned. The commander of Fleet Air Keflavik was the operational commander in charge of all Navy and anti-submarine warfare operations. Administratively, COMFAIRKEF reported to Commander, Naval Air Force U.S. Atlantic Fleet, located in Norfolk, Virginia.”
