UFO Article:
“Jet Interceptors Disarmed by UFO”

(Unknown date)
(Fund for UFO Research (FUFOR), Alexandria, Virginia)


Quote from the article:
“After midnight on September 19, 1976, above Tehran, Iran, two successive F-4 interceptors attempted to catch a radar-visual UFO that had been widely reported by civilians. Each time visual contact was made, and the crew attempted to arm a missile and prepare to fire it, the weapons system electronics failed.

The incident was first brought to light by the leak of a Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) evaluation report to NICAP in 1976. A three-page Department of Defense (DOD) teletype message on the case was obtained by Charles Huffer in 1977 under the Freedom of Information Act. Attached to the message was a copy of the DIA evaluation report.

The DIA evaluation termed this ‘An outstanding report. This case is a classic which meets all the criteria necessary for a valid study of the UFO phenomenon.’ The analysis called the UFO performance ‘awesome,’ noting that the objects displayed ‘an inordinate amount of maneuverability.’ In 1997, Richard Hall tracked down the author of the DIA report and interviewed him by telephone. At that time, he expressed a willingness to testify to a Congressional committee on what he knew about the case.”
