Subject: Important 1961 NICAP Report Solved


To All,

"TWO JET AIRLINERS ENCOUNTER UFO FLYING DISC"!

This emblazoned headline can be found on the right-hand side of
p. 1 of NICAP's THE U.F.O. Investigator, issue of Oct., 1961.

The article refers to a seemingly-dramatic sighting of a
purported 'UFO' by the crews of two jet airliners on Sept. 21,
1961, over the Pacific Ocean.

Among other things, the article states, "The object was
not an ICBM missile." The obvious importance that NICAP attached
to this report is further evidenced by the space allotted to it
in their 1964 document, THE UFO EVIDENCE. (See p. 125-126.)
Here, we also learn that in addition to the two jet airliners,
the purported 'UFO' was also seen by a U.S. ship at sea.

The account does refer to a possible rocket that was fired by
the Soviet Union, but then goes on to dismiss this possibility.

Unfortunately for NICAP, the 'UFO' sighted by these various
observers _was_ indeed a Soviet ICBM rocket launch.

This almost certainly correct explanation is described in detail
in SUNlite, issue # 5-5. (See p. 19-23).

NICAP was dead wrong in dismissing the Soviet ICBM rocket launch
explanation, and this report should be removed from the various
UFO databases that currently exist in ufology.
