UFO Case Directory (Distant Encounters): “Round 3′ Aluminum Object At Great Speed July 11, 1947 Elmendorf Air Force Base, Anchorage, Alaska”

The whole UFO case report:
Brad Sparks:
July 11, 1947. Elmendorf Air Base, Anchorage, Alaska
11:00 a.m. (AHST). AAF Col. Bruce H. Perry and Major
William E. Geyser, 59th AACS Group, saw a round 2-3 ft or 10 ft aluminum or
silver-metallic spherical object travel at great speed to the S at estimated
altitude of 3,000 to 4,000
, below scattered clouds at 10,000 ft. (Sparks; Lara
Elliott/NICAP website; FBI files; BB files; 
McDonald list; FOIA; Saunders/FUFOR Index) 15-20 secs 2 witnesses 1/2
Full Moon
Supplemental Notes:
Lara Elliott’s recent contribution (*) supplies the
clues to finally lay to rest a long-standing date confusion. This incident
occurred on July 11, 1947, proven by Dan Wilson who had found a teletype sent
July 12, 1947, at 0047Z, in the Project SIGN microfilm collection at BBArchive,
reporting it as occurring at 2100Z on July 11. (**) Another entry in the
Chrono, Sept. 17, 1947, is now resolved as a mistake, a duplicate of the July
11, 1947, case and needs to be removed. 
The precursor to Project SIGN, within AMC T-2 Technical Intelligence
Division, mistakenly assigned a Sept 17 date to the identical (July 11) case
data back in 1947. As we can see now from Lara’s work, undated copies of the
case floated around to the various intelligence agencies such as the FBI (and
even within the AAF) and would get assigned bogus dates.”
Wikipedia article: “Elmendorf Air Force Base”:
Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“Elmendorf Air Force Base (IATA: EDF, ICAO: PAED, FAA
LID: EDF) is a United States military facility in Anchorage, the largest city
in Alaska. Originally known as Elmendorf Field, it became Elmendorf Air Force
Base after World War II, and in 2010 it merged with nearby Fort Richardson to
form Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.”
