UFO Case Directory (Distant Encounters):
“Round 3' Aluminum Object At Great Speed
July 11, 1947
Elmendorf Air Force Base, Anchorage, Alaska”


The whole UFO case report:
Brad Sparks:
July 11, 1947. Elmendorf Air Base, Anchorage, Alaska (BBU)
11:00 a.m. (AHST). AAF Col. Bruce H. Perry and Major William E. Geyser, 59th AACS Group, saw a round 2-3 ft or 10 ft aluminum or silver-metallic spherical object travel at great speed to the S at estimated altitude of 3,000 to 4,000 ft, below scattered clouds at 10,000 ft. (Sparks; Lara Elliott/NICAP website; FBI files; BB files;  McDonald list; FOIA; Saunders/FUFOR Index) 15-20 secs 2 witnesses 1/2 Full Moon

Supplemental Notes:
Lara Elliott's recent contribution (*) supplies the clues to finally lay to rest a long-standing date confusion. This incident occurred on July 11, 1947, proven by Dan Wilson who had found a teletype sent July 12, 1947, at 0047Z, in the Project SIGN microfilm collection at BBArchive, reporting it as occurring at 2100Z on July 11. (**) Another entry in the Chrono, Sept. 17, 1947, is now resolved as a mistake, a duplicate of the July 11, 1947, case and needs to be removed.  The precursor to Project SIGN, within AMC T-2 Technical Intelligence Division, mistakenly assigned a Sept 17 date to the identical (July 11) case data back in 1947. As we can see now from Lara's work, undated copies of the case floated around to the various intelligence agencies such as the FBI (and even within the AAF) and would get assigned bogus dates.”

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“Elmendorf Air Force Base (IATA: EDF, ICAO: PAED, FAA LID: EDF) is a United States military facility in Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska. Originally known as Elmendorf Field, it became Elmendorf Air Force Base after World War II, and in 2010 it merged with nearby Fort Richardson to form Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.”
