UFO News Article:
“Military Undergoes Special Alert”

18 April 1952
(Associated Press (New York City, New York) article)


The whole article:
“All agencies of the nation’s military establishment were placed on special readiness yesterday because of a ‘pattern of unknowns [UFOs] which appeared potentially dangerous,’ the Air Defense command said today.

In a statement issued through the Eastern Defense Command headquarters at Stewart Field, the Air Defense Command said: ‘Our detection system developed a pattern of unknowns in both the Northeast and Northwest which apepared [sic] [appeared] potentially dangerous. We alerted all agencies of the national military establishment until the unknowns were identified, after which the period of special readiness was called off.

‘It would be an error to say that such an alert is not unusual. However, it is the function that the Air Defense Command was organized to perform.

The Air Defense Command declined to elaborate upon its statement or the situation which caused the ‘period’ of special readiness.’ ”

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“Aerospace Defense Command was a major command of the United States Air Forces, responsible for continental air defence. It was activated in 1968 and disbanded in 1980. Its predecessor, Air Defense Command, was established in 1946, briefly inactivated in 1950, reactivated in 1951, and then redesignated Aerospace rather than Air in 1968. Its mission was to provide air defense of the Continental United States (CONUS). It directly controlled all active measures, and was tasked to coordinate all passive means of air defense.”

“A Forensic Analysis - the SCU report on the
events of November 2004 is now available”

A Forensic Analysis

The Scientific Coalition for Ufology has just released a report titled ‘A Forensic Analysis of Navy Carrier Strike Group Eleven’s Encounter with an Anomalous Aerial Vehicle.’ The authors are Robert Powell, Peter Reali, Tim Thompson, Morgan Beall, Doug Kimzey, Larry Cates, and Richard Hoffman.

The abstract of the report reads:

‘On November 14th of 2004, the U.S. Navy's Carrier Strike Group Eleven (CSG 11), including the USS Nimitz nuclear aircraft carrier and the USS Princeton missile cruiser, were conducting a training exercise off the coast of southern California when the Navy’s radar systems detected as many as 20 anomalous aerial vehicles (AAV). These AAV's were deemed a safety hazard to an upcoming air exercise and the Captain of the USS Princeton ordered an interception with two F/A-18F Navy jets. This paper examines the publicly available subset of those data: Eyewitness information from the pilots and radar operators; Freedom of Information Act releases of four Navy documents; and a Defense Intelligence Agency released video taken by an F/A-18 jet using an AN/ASQ-228 Advanced Targeting Forward Looking Infrared (ATFLIR). Analytical calculations based on radar notes, testimony from pilots, and the ATFLIR video are used to derive the velocity, acceleration and estimated power demonstrated by the AAV maneuvers. Calculated AAV accelerations ranged from 40 g-forces to hundreds of g-forces and estimated power based on a weight of one ton ranged from one to nine gigawatts. None of the navy witnesses reported ever previously seen military or civilian vehicles with these maneuvering abilities. Manned aircraft such as the F-22 and F-35 are limited to nine g-forces and the F-35 has maintained structural integrity up to 13.5 g-forces. Our results suggest that given the available information the AAV’s capabilities are beyond any known technology. The public release of all navy records associated with this incident to 
enable a full, scientific and open investigation is strongly
