The whole UFO case report:
Not listed as an ‘Unknown’ by Project Blue Book, this case was important to the Air Force. Blue Book Captain Ed Ruppelt said that, ‘it didn’t take an expert to see that a B-36, even one piloted by an experienced idiot, could not do what the UFO had done - buzz a DC-3 that was in an aircraft traffic pattern.’ That was the AF explanation and the case was closed.
Jan. 20, 1951;
9:20-9:26 p.m. (CST). Capt. Lawrence W. Vinther, copilot James F. Bachmeier, passengers AF Colonel and aide, and CAA tower controller John M. Williams. At 9:20 the 2 CAA tower controllers sighted light in the W [NW?]. After Vinther’s Mid-Continent Airlines DC-3 took off, he was asked by the tower to look for light, then while still in a climbing 360° turn at about
they spotted object to the NNW at about 8,000 ft and 4 miles away that looked
like a B-29 fuselage with wings but no engines, which blinked some lights like
running lights. Object came at the DC-3, flew across the nose within 200 ft, they had to turn
their heads to follow it then suddenly found it instantly appeared on the other
side again, paralleled them for 2-3 secs, then flew under them and disappeared
in 2-3 secs to the NW. (Battelle Unknown No. 3; cf. NARCAP)”
