UFO Report:
“The 1958 UFO Chronology”

Created: 24 February 2006
Updated: 24 April (year unknown)

Quote from the UFO report:
“This is a 9-page report on a project involving a number of people. A lot of the incidents do not yet have active links to reports. Blue Book microfilms are only processed to mid-1952, so it will be some time before we can accomplish that goal. However, this is a comprehensive list for 1958 and will also suffice as a good work and checklist for our team. With the help of William Wise (Project Blue Book Archive), and Dan Wilson (archive researcher), the task becomes much easier. But without Brad Sparks’ updated list, the Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns, the entire project would have been impossible. And our thanks also go to Jean Waskiewicz who created the online NICAP DBase (NSID) that helped make it possible to link from the cases to the reports themselves. Note: Entries marked Cat. 3 are E-M (Electro-Magnetic interference cases) from the Cat. 3 printout where sources are listed. ‘UFOE’ is the NICAP publication, The UFO Evidence (Richard Hall, 1964).

Wikipedia article: “McChord Field”:

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“McChord Field (IATA: TCM, ICAO: KTCM, FAA LID: TCM) is a United States Air Force base in the northwest United States, in Pierce County, Washington. South of Tacoma, McChord Field is the home of the 62d Airlift Wing, Air Mobility Command, the field’s primary mission being worldwide strategic airlift.

The McChord facility was consolidated with the U.S. Army’s Fort Lewis on 1 February 2010 to become part of the Joint Base Lewis-McChord complex.[2] This initiative was driven by the Base Realignment and Closure Round in 2005 and is designed to combine current infrastructure into one maximizing war fighting capability and efficiency, while saving taxpayer dollars.[3]”
