I can not understand how GCI was painting this target and I could not pick it up. We were at about 7,000 feet and then after the last pass GCI said that someone was on our tail. I turned and thought I saw a plane, but could not be sure, as it was only for a second. Martin started a right turn, and to climb. I then picked up our target at about 7,000 yds and about 7,000 feet altitude and locked on. I believe that this was the target GCI was painting all the time, and that he was in our area while we were making passes at the light.
The object moved at speeds ranging from "slow" to over 1,000 mph and was at an altitude of 5,000 feet. The witness, Lt. Cmdr. C. N, was on board a CVE class aircraft carrier at the time as a naval pilot (with over 4,000 flight hrs). Following is his report submitted to the National Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP). "It was at night, I was riding with a radar operator which I often did to check on their proficiency. We were flying at 5,000 feet, solid instruments, with our wingman flying a radar position about 3 miles astern and slightly to our right or left.
Even for a very low muzzle velocity (say 900 fps), his estimate of 1 to 2 seconds duration from when his M-l fired to when he heard the projectile strike the object is clearly too long. Is it possible that he only heard the echo of his own rifle firing from the surface of the object? 6. It is unlikely that the light ray that was emitted from this object was the cause of his (much later) symptoms of his memory loss. In another letter to Mr. Wall dated April 14, 19901 provided him with a list of 72 names of personnel who were in his company with the request that he try to recall (and mark on the letter) the names of as many of them as possible.
