UFO Report:
“1948 UFO Chronology
and the ‘Estimate of the Situation’ ”

Created: 15 December 2005

Quote from the UFO report:
1948 was (and still is) a very important year in UFOlogy and this is a 24-page report.  I want to thank all the members of the A-Team who made this possible. The latest group of entries was supplied by new A-Team member, Don Johnson (UFOCAT fame) and are marked with an asterisk. Note: There are 209 entries in the 38-page La Paz catalog, the ‘Summary of Sightings of Unknown Phenomena, 17th District OSI.’ But in the 1948 group there were only 13 sightings and the only ones listed here are the reports with some important details that make them extraordinary. Also, brief case descriptions giving the Cat (Category) number, name of witness, and source in brackets (M=military), are NICAP UFO Evidence entries that haven’t been located. Finally, the case listings from BB files, where available, are inserted by month, and also listed here. A major breakthrough on the Mantell case occurred in 2006. This case had been explained by many researchers, but the A-Team uncovered new evidence. See January 7th. Finally, I want thank Loren Gross for thoughtfully and diligently collecting data many years ago for his UFO Histories and supplemental notes, in particular here the year 1948. And a big thanks to CUFOS and Mary Castnor for housing them on the CUFOS site.
