Subject: PROJECT-1947 : A case from the Korean conflict

Working on the Project 1947 EM Effects catalog, I came across the
famous Korean conflict case first reported by the Lorenzens in
"Flying Saucers". The case is an observation of two 600-700
foot discs at 1.5 mi or less, with physical effects, from 3 Navy

To the best of my knowledge, details of this case have never been
substantiated beyond the original account.

I decided to pursue the case in some detail, and determined that
it was unlikely that the mission described occurred in September
of 1950 as typically reported. Instead, it appears likely that
the event occurred in October 1950, between the 10th and the
29th, on the east coast of Korea. The mission was probably flown
by AD-4W Skyraider aircraft in what was known as a "road recce"
to support the push into the northernmost part of Korea. If this
is true, it was flown from a carrier in the Sea of Japan.

This case has many interesting components:

Object Appearance  - "Coolie hat" shape with black filled circle
on bottom, a row of pulsating copper-green to pastel color ports
and a luminous red ring encircling the upper portion. Black
circle remains apparently unaffected by object 'jittering'.

Object Behavior  - Flew up from behind aircraft, overshot 1.5 mi,
paced aircraft, then manuvered over and under aircraft as if
inspecting. Objects appeared to constantly 'jitter'. After some
minutes of this behavior, objects departed back the way they had
come at great speed, disappearing into the distance.

Physical Effect - Radar traces, radar interference / radar screen
'blooming', radio interference (buzzing), sensation of heat,
vibration transmitted to aircraft, gun camera film exposed /
fogged, luminous dial paint excited.

Anyone interested in more detail, including my reasoning, will
find the case in the chronological catalog at


dated 9/1950

Any comments or elaboration are welcome.
