Subject: Radar UFOs Over DC Area?

The Washington Post, on May 12, published a short list of
"incursions" over the DC area. This was part of a much l;onger
story on the pilot who nearly got x'd out by an F-16 as the
plane headed toward the White House.


- from January 2003 to July 2004 more than 2,000 radar "tracks of
interest" were detected over Washington airspace leading to 350
scrambles of customs aircraft based at Reagan National Airport,
according to the Department of Homeland Security."

You will recall the sighting of a blue light in conjunction with
a scramble almost two (?) years ago (discussed on Ufo UpDates).
No doubt, this one is included in the statistics.

The newspaper also lists several examples including planes that
approached on Jun 9, 2004, Nov 10, 2003 and Jun 19, 2002.

However the most ufologicially interesting example is this:

"April 27, 2005: President Bush is taken to a White House bunker
and Vice President Cheney is evacuated from the executive
complex when an unidentified radar target approaches to within
seven miles of Reagan National Airport. Authorities conclude
that the radar blip was caused by clouds or a weather anomaly."

Would be interesting to know the actual technical data on this
"radar blip": duration, distance traveled, speed, direction,
date, time, etc. The way it first was detected and the manner in
which it was last detected and the strength. All of these
together would provide sufficient information to estimate
whether or not the "cloud or weather anomaly" made any sense.
For example, if it moved at more than 100 mph, like a small
plane, it wouldn't be a cloud.
