Wikipedia article: “Charles P. Cabell”:

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“Charles Pearre Cabell (October 11, 1903 – May 25, 1971) was a United States Air Force General and Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (1953–1962).

Cabell achieved the rank of colonel in 1942 and brigadier general in 1944, serving both at air force headquarters at the Pentagon and in the European Theater. During the late 1940s and early 1950s, he held a variety of staff headquarters positions, including chief of Air Force Intelligence 1948-1951, and director of the staff for the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1951-1953.

In 1949, Cabell set up Project Grudge to ‘make a study reviewing the UFO situation for AF HQ.’ However, Grudge quickly became all but moribund, while simultaneously reporting that all UFO cases were being closely investigated. When Cabell learned of this, he ordered Grudge dissolved and ordered that the ‘open minded’[1] Project Blue Book be created.”

UFO Case Directory:
“Alaskan Radar Case
January 22, 1952
Nenana, Alaska”


The whole UFO case report:
Francis Ridge:
Jan. 22, 1952; Nenana, Alaska
This was a an incident involving both ground and airborne radar. Three F-94’s were scrambled to intercept the radar target. The UFO maneuvered and radar indicated it streaked away to the west. The object was tracked at 23,000 feet and clocked at 1500 mph. At first the Air Force claimed this was a weather target. But when you read the documents below you can see they never explained this incident.

Capt. Edward J. Ruppelt:
A month or two after we’d received the report, I was out in Colorado Springs at Air Defense Command Headquarters. I was eating lunch in the officers’ club when I saw an officer from the radar operations section at ADC. He asked me to stop by his office when I had a spare minute, and I said that I would. He said that it was important.” presents U.S. government (U.S. Air Force) documents that pertain to the UFO case.

Wikipedia article: “Clear Air Force Station”:

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“Clear Air Force Station (‘Clear’ colloq.) is a United States Air Force Station radar station for detecting incoming ICBMs and submarine-launched ballistic missiles[3] to NORAD’s command center and to provide Space Surveillance data to Air Force Space Command’s Space Control Center (SCC). Clear’s AN/FPS-123 Upgraded Early Warning Radar is part of the Solid State Phased Array Radar System (SSPARS) which also includes those at Beale AFB, Cape Cod AFS, RAF Fylingdales and Thule Site J. The ‘historic property’ was one of the Alaska World War II Army Airfields and later a Cold War BMEWS site providing NORAD data to Colorado’s BMEWS Central Computer and Display Facility (CC&DF).

In addition to the ‘original camp area’ with buildings still in use today,[4] areas of the station include the airfield (ICAO: PACL), the ‘SSPARS Site’[5] the technical site (Utilador,[6] BMEWS reflectors, support buildings, power plant), and the composite site (two permanent dormitories, a mess hall, recreation area, and administrative area).[citation needed] In addition to the Air National Guard unit, Clear has active duty USAF, Royal Canadian Air Force, civilian, and contractor personnel.”

Clear Air Force Station is located in Nenana, Alaska.

UFO News Article (Blog):
“NY Times is MIA”

By Billy Cox, 18 June 2018
(De Void, Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Florida)

Billy Cox reports about the testimonies of two new U.S. Navy witnesses who observed UFO activity during the November 2004 USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group exercise (took place about a hundred miles south west of San Diego, California).

The witnesses were radar operator Kevin M. Day, former Senior Chief Petty Officer aboard the USS Princeton, and Trevor, an E4 (Petty Officer Third Class) Naval Operations Specialist aboard the USS Nimitz. Trevor is real, according to UFO researcher Robert Powell.

In this article, he also asks why The New York Times has not followed up on the 2004 USS Nimitz UFO case. In my opinion – one can find the answer to that question by reading the late Terry Hansen’s book, The Missing Times: News Media Complicity in the UFO Cover-up.
