“Brookley Air Force base reported Thursday that an ‘unidentified flying object, brilliant and silver colored’ was tracked by radar over Mobile and the Alabama-Mississippi gulf coast Wednesday night [30 June 1954].

Major James Zicherali, public information officer at Brookley, said the object ‘appeared to be a jet-type aircraft of new design with short stubby wings.’

Five other residents of Alabama and Mississippi also reported sighting the object.

Zicherali said the object appeared on the base control tower radar screen at 6:50 p.m. CST. He said radar operators reported it ‘made no sound and left no trail.’ ”

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
Brookley Air Force Base is a former United States Air Force base located in Mobile, Alabama. After it closed in 1969, it became what is now known as the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley.

Postwar use
Following World War II and the creation of an independent United States Air Force, the installation became Brookley Air Force Base. In 1947 with the closure of Morrison Field, Florida, the C-74 Globemaster project was moved to Brookley. The C-74 was, at the time, the largest military transport aircraft in the world. It was developed by Douglas Aircraft after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The long distances across the Atlantic, and especially the Pacific Ocean to the combat areas indicated a need for a transoceanic heavy-lift military transport aircraft.

The ‘C-74 squadron’ (later 521st Air Transport Group, 1701st Air Transport Wing), Air Transport Command operated two squadrons of C-74 Globemasters from Brookley from 1947 until their retirement in 1955. The eleven aircraft were used extensively for worldwide transport of personnel and equipment, supporting United States military missions.”
