The whole UFO case report:
Dan Wilson:
March 13, 1952; Keflavik, Iceland
7:12 a.m. Eight separate unidentified radar sightings were made by a [U.S. Air Force] GCA team while working a C-47 aircraft on practice runs at Keflavik, Iceland. The first of the eight objects appeared at 0712Z (7:12 a.m. local time). The last object was observed at 8:09 a.m. The estimated airspeed of the objects was 250 knots and at estimated altitude of above 8000 feet. One report stated that one object crossed the scope at a speed much faster than an F-86.” presents two U.S. government (Project Blue Book, 
U.S. Air Force) documents that pertain to the UFO case.

Wikipedia article: “Naval Air Station Keflavik”:

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
Naval Air Station Keflavik (NASKEF) was a U.S. Navy station at KeflavĂ­k International Airport, Iceland, located on the Reykjanes peninsula on the south-west portion of the island. NASKEF was closed on 8 September 2006, and its facilities were taken over by the Icelandic Defence Agency as their primary base until 1 January 2011, when the Agency was abolished and the base handed over to the Icelandic Coast Guard, which has since then operated the base.[1]

The base was built during World War II by the United States Army as part of its mission to maintain the defense of Iceland and secure northern Atlantic air routes. It served to ferry personnel, equipment, and supplies to Europe. Intended as a temporary wartime base under an agreement with Iceland and the British, US forces withdrew by 1947 but returned in 1951 as the Iceland Defense Force resident on a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) base. The base was regularly visited by the American military and other NATO allies for military exercises, NATO Air Policing, and other tasks. In 2017, the United States announced its intention to modify the largest hangar on the Icelandic base in order to house the new Boeing P-8 Poseidon ASW aircraft being introduced.[2]


United States Air Force use

On 25 May 1951 the U.S. Air Force reestablished a presence at Keflavik Airport with the establishment of the 1400th Air Base Group. Jurisdiction of the airport was assumed by Military Air Transport Service (MATS). MATS re-established a military air terminal and refueling point for trans-Atlantic air service between the United States and Europe at Keflavik. MATS (later MAC and Air Mobility Command) units remained at the airport until the withdrawal of United States military units from Iceland in 2006.”

Focus On U.S. Navy F/A-18F Super Hornet
Fighter Pilot Chad Underwood’s UFO Encounter

It was Lieutenant Chad Underwood who filmed the Tic Tac UFO (FLIR1) on 14 November 2004 during the 2004 USS Nimitz exercise off San Diego, California.

This incident was part of the November 2004 USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group 11 UFO incidents that occurred about a hundred miles south west of San Diego.

The David Fravor and Jim Slaight incident also occurred on 14 November 2004 (a short while before the Underwood incident).

To my knowledge, ten U.S. Navy personnel, Sean Cahill, Kevin M. Day, David Fravor, Patrick J. Hughes, Omar Lara, Jim Slaight, Jason Turner, Chad Underwood, Gary Voorhis and Ryan Weigelt, have talked (or written) about the UFO incidents on the Internet.

Sean Cahill was the Chief Master-at-Arms aboard the USS Princeton.

Kevin M. Day was a Senior Chief Petty Officer (radar operator) aboard the USS Princeton.

David Fravor, who chased the UFO (resembled a white Tic Tac), was flying his F/A-18F Super Hornet jet fighter.

At the time of the UFO incident, Fravor was the commanding officer of the VFA-41 Black Aces, a U.S. Navy strike fighter squadron.

P. J. Hughes was an aviation technician aboard the USS Nimitz.

Omar Lara was a Flight Decker in Air Ops aboard the USS Nimitz.

Lieutenant Commander (later Commander) Jim Slaight was the pilot of the second F/A-18F Super Hornet jet fighter (the David Fravor incident).

Jason Turner was a Petty Officer Third Class (in Supply) aboard the USS Princeton.

F/A-18F Super Hornet fighter pilot Lieutenant Chad Underwood filmed (on 14 November 2004) the Tic Tac (FLIR1) UFO using a Raytheon AN/ASQ-228 Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) pod. The UFO was filmed a while after David Fravor’s incident.

Gary Voorhis was a Fire Controlman Petty Officer Third Class aboard the USS Princeton.

AD1(AW) Ryan Weigelt, Aviation Machinist’s Mate Petty Officer 1st Class, was present on the USS Princeton during the November 2004 UFO encounters.

A large number of UFOs were recorded on radar on and off for several days during the November 2004 U.S. Navy exercise, according to USS Princeton radar operator Kevin M. Day.

Gary Voorhis experienced that the unknown objects “zoomed around at ridiculous speeds and angles and trajectories,” and that “it (the UFOs) was moving faster than our radar could register.”“Chad+Underwood”+FLIR1
