I agree with Brad.

When I contemplate the technical difficulty in spoofing a moving
radar (on the airplane) into 'thinking' it is following a moving
(but non-existent) solid object that has a (large) radar return
using 1950's technology I reject the spoofing explanation

It would even be difficult to do nowadays, especially if there
were several radars involved (ground and air).
