I*n the mid to late 50s I was an Airborne Radar Tech flying on an RC-121
Warning Star aircraft on Station 2 just south of Sable Island, Nova Scotia.The APS 20 radar picked up a return at approx 120 to 150 miles tothe NW. This return was traveling east at approx 2500 to 3000 miles an hour.
we had it on the scopefor several minutes then it went off the scope and we never seen it again. We had called it in to our reporting center and requested an ID on it. A half hour later we got a message back and all they would tell us was " Canadian Navy classified". We all thought at the time that this was a cover story for something really strange going on. We had know visual except for the radar return and the other traffic we picked up that night appeared normal. This is the best as I can remember as it was almost 50 years ago. I don,t know if this is revelant any more but thought Iwould send it on for your info. Thank You. Jon H Richardson
