UNITED STATES NAVY, MARINE CORPS, COAST GUARD AND OTHER GOVERNMENT SEAGOING SERVICES UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECT (UFO) AND UNIDENTIFIED SUBMERGED OBJECT(USO) SIGHTING REPORTS http://www.project1947.com/47cats/usnavyintro.htm This a work in progress which list 190 cases from various sources official, media, UFO organizations and personal accounts. It is not yet complete, but represents the most comprehensive listing to date. It complement both Tony Rullan's "Blue Book UFO Reports at Sea by Ships" and Carl Feindt's Water UFO website. In addition to ships at sea, this list includes reports from aircraft, ground personal and reports from bases and anchored and moored ships. The history of Navy involvement in the UFO problem is sketchy at best, with few records available directly from the Service itself. This list is offered as a basis for further research. Both retired Marine Major Donald E. Keyhoe, a Naval Academy graduate, and Dr. James McDonald, who had scientific research contracts from the Navy attempted to gain information and reports, but were many times stymied by official silence or the unwillingness of Navy witnesses talk for the record. The purpose in constructing this catalogue here is three fold: to update the previous listing in the 1964 National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) listing, to initiate a task proposed to the Sign Historical Groups' list of historical research to the Coalition on Freedom of Information (CFI) and to extend the topic of Navy involvement in the UFO problem in the recent historical publication "UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry." Project 1947 has not produce a finalized item, but a work in progresswhich will also examine a number of cases catalogued here in greater detail in the future, and there will be additions of many more cases. The current work represents about 60 per cent of the cases collected to date. Updates will be published from time to time. Information, comments and criticisms, as always, are welcome at: project1947.nul Also, more material has been added to the 1952 page http://www.project1947.com/fig/1952a.htm Jan Aldrich Listen to 'Strange Days...
