UFO News Article: “UFOs on radar denied”

18 November 1975
(Bangor Daily News, Maine)
Quote from the article:
“Lt. Robert Barca, assistant information officer said his office was not too sure where the information came from, but a recheck showed Loring’s radar screen did not track ‘the thing’ seen by several observers in the area before dawn Sunday.
Loring’s information officer, Maj.Richard F. Quimby, had said Sunday that a radar screen at the base had tracked ‘the thing,’ which was spotted and described Sunday by Caribou police, sheriff’s deputies, a U.S. Customs official in Limestone and a Royal Canadian Mounted Police constable.

‘Something must have been misconstrued,’ Barca said Monday. ‘We did some rechecking and we can’t find anyone who spotted it on radar.’ ”
