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.
