The article reports on Australia Department of Civil Aviation radar controller Alan Potter’s August 1969 UFO experience.
Potter was tracking a Fokker Friendship flight when the radar pinged a much larger unknown object.
After a while, a much smaller object than the Fokker appeared to leave the large echo before flying towards the airplane.
Potter saw that the two signals met in the skies over Rapid Bay, south of Adelaide, and then watched the smaller object return to the larger object.
The rotation of the radar took five seconds. In that time – the large unknown object travelled 70 nautical miles to the north east. In the next pass the object had disappeared off the screen.
A lot of UFO incidents occurred in Adelaide in the late 1960s, according to the article.
