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".
