Quote from the article:
“The Air Force said tonight the current series of ‘flying saucer’ reports had brought no change in its twenty-four-hour-a-day program to challenge any unidentified and potentially hostile object in the skies over the United States.
Unidentified objects were spotted on radar screens at the Washington National Airportthis week-end, as they had been last Monday.
Actually the jet interceptors did not take off from their base near Newcastle, Del., until nearly two hours after the radar watcher at Washington first had seen the unexplained objects on his radar screen.

The Air Force explained today that the delay occurred when the report was sent to an Air Force flight center at Middletown, Pa., instead of through the Air Force command post in the Pentagon.”
