Martin, All, I'm dodging the more weighty issues that this thread later ventures into, e.g., what constitutes proof of the ETH, etc., to submit the observation that while the Minot AFB Case often refers by default to the 1968 incident, there is a previous (25 Aug 1966) incident that is no slouch either, involving multiple military visual witnesses, correlated radar returns, EM effects (radio interference proportional to object proximity), and an apparently _landed_ object that prompted dispatch of a ground- based strike team (the object departed while the team was still some miles distant). And, lest I forget, a military witness sketch depicting a classic saucer. I have little familiarity with this case aside from these readily available highlights, so please correct me if this bubble has already been burst. Hynek was apparently impressed with it, at least in the short term, per his article on UFOs in the 17 Dec 1966 issue of the Saturday Evening Post, characterizing it as "a truly puzzling UFO report... one that is not explainable as it now stands by such familiar causes as a balloon, aircraft, satellite or meteor".
