My dad was called into the radar shack on a secret island in the south pacific early in the morning, around 3:00 a.m.
The radar operator stated the object was hovering about 200 miles out from the base. My dad was the security chief of the base, as well as the fire chief of the base. Am reluctant to disclose anything vital for security reasons.
He asked the radar operator if their was any military operations around from naval vessels to which the reply was no.
He then asked if any helicoptors could be out their as well, once again no.
While watching the 300 mile screen, the object moved to a position above the island in 2 to 3 rotations of the radar, indicating incredible speed.
The object then hovered above the island for a few minutes at a high altitude. my dad then asked where the nearest airbase was, which he already knew but had to ask, which was Honolulu Hawaii. Honolulu was over 2500 miles away. while ascertaining what to do, the object took off at incredible speed and did the impossable, the object while leaving at speeds estimated at over 12,000 mph did a 90° turn.
I am reporting this because my dad is old and would never report it. In just 2 sweeps of the radar, the object was gone off screen.
My dad held a top level 20 security clearance, so I am reluctant to go into too much details even though it was a long time ago.
I personally eyewitnessed the forced downing of a UFO in between the 2 islands of Kauai & Nejiau Hawaii on about July 1, 1972 or 1973.
There is more but dont know how much space is available.
