Focus On the 14 May 1978 Pinecastle Electronic
Warfare Range (Bombing Range), Ocala, Florida,
UFO Incident

NICAP.org UFO case report (by Dan Wilson) (nicap.org):
“May 14, 1978; Pinecastle Electronic Warfare Range, Florida
At 10:00 and 10:10 p.m. local time, the Pinecastle Duty Officer at the U.S. Navy Pinecastle Electronic Warfare Range received two calls from unidentified civilians reporting a UFO with red, green and white lights. The control tower was notified and the watchstander observed stationary lights at an estimated altitude of 1600 feet in the area reported by the callers. Orders went out to activate the MSQ-102 Radar. After a 20 minute warm up the radar detected a unidentified blip ‘fluttering’ over the CD Tower. The tracking computer was put on the unidentified target which was showing very little movement. The target was observed for approximately one hour when it began to move at about 400-500 knots. The radar operator said he tried to ‘train’ the radar on the object but it accelerated rapidly, evading his efforts to lock and track it on the computer. When he caught up with the object, it reversed direction and started back toward Pinecastle. The radar operator finally locked on the object after it had practically stopped moving. Shortly after the target broke radar lock. Collins, the radar operator had been operating radar for most of his eight years of service. A total of eight Naval personnel visually observed red, green and white lights of the object from the control tower for over an hour.”

Wikipedia article: “Naval Air Station Cecil Field”:

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“Naval Air Station Cecil Field or NAS Cecil Field (IATA: NZC, ICAO: KNZC, FAA LID: NZC) was a United States Navy air base, located in Duval County, Florida. Prior to 1999, NAS Cecil Field was the largest military base in terms of acreage in the Jacksonville, Florida area.

NAS Cecil Field consisted of four separate facilities, the NAS Cecil Field Complex (Cecil Field), Outlying Field Whitehouse (OLF Whitehouse), the Yellow Water Weapons Department and the Pinecastle [Pine Castle] Electronic Warfare Target Area / Warfare Range. Including nearly 
2,500 acres (10 km²) at OLF Whitehouse, the NAS Cecil Field complex consisted of 22,939 acres (92.8 km²); in addition, the base leased another 8,379 acres (33.9 km²). By late 1999, approximately 17,200 acres (69.6 km²) were transferred to the civilian sector in the form of the Jacksonville Aviation Authority, while the remainder was transferred to Naval Air Station Jacksonville.”

Wikipedia article: “Ocala National Forest”:


Quote from the Wikipedia article:

“The United States Navy’s Pinecastle Bombing Range in the Ocala National Forest is the only place on the East Coast where the Navy can do live impact training. The Navy drops nearly 20,000 bombs a year at the site, a few hundred of which are live. The Pinecastle Bombing Range is a fenced 5,760 acres (23.3 km2) area, with the eastern edge of the range located about 2 miles (3.2 km) west of State Road 19 and the Camp Ocala campgrounds, and one-half mile (800 m) west of the Farles Lake campground. F/A-18 Hornet jet fighters and other aircraft take off from Naval Air Station Jacksonville or from aircraft carriers off the Florida coast, fly low over the forest, and drop their bombs in the middle 450 acres (1.8 km2) of the range. P-3 Orion and P-8 Poseidon aircraft will also use an instrumented range in the southeast quadrant of Lake George to conduct aerial mining training utilizing inert 500lb mines. All air-to-ground exercises using conventional ordnance up to and including 500 pounds (230 kg) MK 82 bombs and five-inch (127 mm) Zuni rockets are authorized. Napalm and High Explosive Incendiary (HEI) are prohibited. Live ordnance is restricted to the Live Ordnance Impact Area; inert ordnance is used on all other targets. Pinecastle targets have also been certified for laser operations. The Navy has used the area for target practice for 50 years under a special use permit from the U.S. Forest Service.”

The meeting, which saw the participation of various experts on the subject, was organized and directed by the expert journalist of exobiology Sabrina Pieragostini.

In his opening, Colonel Cattel clarified to the audience the support provided by the Air Force in the matter of UFOs, through the recording of all the reports received by citizens through Carabinieri (military police) stations present on the national territory, in order to to correlate the information received to known events. These reports are collected in an archive that the Air Force has declassified to give the opportunity to anyone interested to be able to view the documents contained therein.

Colonel Cattel has also specified that the Air Force has among its main tasks to defend the Italian airspace, ensuring the operational effectiveness and the use of the air forces in the framework of the national and international security system. This takes place for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to give security to the citizen and safeguard the integrity of the state. Colonel Cattel has also declared that the Armed Force makes available its documentary material to the agencies and authorities that operate in the scientific technical field for any studies and in-depth analysis.”

UFO Report:
“The 1973 UFO Chronology: A World-Wide Wave”

Released: 15 April 2007,
Updated: 17 March 2018

Quote from the UFO report (the introduction):
“This is a 35-page chronology of UFO incidents and events for 1973, a major, world-wide sighting wave. Our thanks for these chronologies must go to our documentation team: Richard Hall (the original 1973 chronology from UFOE II), William Wise (Project Blue Book Archive), Dan Wilson (archive researcher), Brad Sparks (Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns), and Jean Waskiewicz (online NICAP DBase [NSID]), and Michael Swords.

In January of 1973 I was transferred from Hillsboro, Illinois to Mt. Vernon, Indiana, and set up the UFO Filter Center to log UFO reports in the Midwest for the MADAR (UFO detection) Project. The states included in the study were: Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. Therefore this chronos is probably more comprehensive for those states. Most of the NL (nocturnal light) cases that I logged from the UFO Filter Center calls were not used in this chronos, so what you see are the more notable cases. Here is a sample of one of the message slips hastily completed regarding a sighting that COULD have been of value had it been investigated, but I was unable to get enough information.

As evidence for the nuclear connection continued to mount, world-shaking events were taking place which led to the Arab/Israeli War, fought from October 6 to October 26. The war had far-reaching implications for many nations.

The 1973 sighting wave was concentrated in the last half of the year, and featured the largest number of humanoid occupant sightings in many years. Several abductions were reported during this period (see Section XIII, UFOE II). The sightings peaked in mid to late October, with October 17 representing perhaps one of the most extraordinary single days for ‘high-strangeness’ cases in UFO history (see Section XII). Dr. Richard Haines provided this Table 1, 116,   Table 1, 117  of aircraft incidents in 1979 (Ref. 8).

Note: In regard to Humanoid Reports, there doesn’t appear to be any cases as solid as a military radar-visual triangulation case, nor any military multiple-witness incidents, nor any humanoid cases involving radar-visual tracking, or where any astronomers or PhD scientists have seen humanoids and UFO’s? It is important for us to list them, however, but only those incidents where UFOs were observed at the time or supporting evidence warrants.

Features: Police witnesses, vehicle encounter, light beam, E-M effects, extraordinary maneuvers, cat-and-mouse pursuit.

Aug. 13, 1960. Red Bluff, CA: California Highway Patrol Officers Charles A. Carson and Stanley Scott were on patrol when they sighted what they thought was an airliner about to crash. When the UFO had descended to about 100 or 200 feet altitude it suddenly reversed direction and climbed to 500 ft. Description: round or oblong surrounded by a glow (color not mentioned) and having definite red lights at each end. They continued to watch the UFO as it performed ‘unbelievable’ aerial feats. The local RADAR operator confirmed the UFO at this time but denied it the next day. Other Tehema County Sheriffs’ officers also saw this UFO and  another similar one that same night. (NICAP, 1964)”
