Duration:45 min.
The experience left everyone in a quandry, and had the effect of trauma suffered.

Unknown aircraft detected flying in 4-6 cells 5 objects in each cell at altitude of greater than 50 thousand incredible speed, estimated at greater than 5000 mph.

A device was used to detect and observe the unknown objects after we received information from forward observers which earlier had detected them. We foreworded this information to authorities during and after the incident.

A decision was made to ignore the matter and that it will be dealt with at a later time.

We were unable to detect them with field glasses.

Other observers estimated that they were last detected over the North Atlantic 50 minutes after the first report was entered.
