For instance in these books: - Scientific Ufology by Kevin Randle (1999), pages 60 to 70; - UFOs and Nukes by Robert Hastings (2010) chapter 15. Hastings refers to the report of the main researchers, Thomas Tullien and James Klotz, "The Minot UFO Incident Report" I am not sure if it is published already, but they have an articleon their web site: http://www.minotb52ufo.com See also: http://www.project1947.com.shg.minot One of the main witnesses, the copilot of the B-52, Bradford Runyon, was interviewed in the 2005 ABC program UFOs.
