UFO News Article:
“Men taken aboard UFO? - Nearby radar jammed”

15 October 1973
(Journal News, Hamilton, Ohio)


The article reports on the 11 October 1973 Charles Hickson/Calvin Parker UFO incident (occurred in Pascagoula, Mississippi).

A short time after Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker’s UFO encounter in Pascagoula, Marion County civil defense official James Thornhill of Columbia, Mississippi, picked up an unknown object on his radar set.

Columbia is situated 157 kilometres (98 miles) north west of Pascagoula.

Quote from the article:
“ ‘I observed what I thought to be an aircraft,’ Thornhill told officials. ‘It got rather close to the station, about three miles, then it became stationary and all of a sudden my radar just completely jammed.’

‘I’ve never seen anything quite like this, except perhaps during World War II,’ he said.

Thornhill said the radar unit developed streaks when the UFO returned later. Area residents, he said, reported seeing a craft with bright blue lights Sunday night.”
