http://www.everything3d2.com/ In September of 1952 there was a war game call Operation Mainbrace. Operation Mainbrace was the largest naval exercise undertaken to that date by the newly established Allied Command Atlantic (ACLANT), one of the two principal military commands of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). It was part of a series of NATO exercises jointly commanded by Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic Admiral Lynde D. McCormick, USN, and Supreme Allied Commander Europe General Matthew B. Ridgeway, U.S. Army, of September of 1952.
During the night of Sept 13 when the NATO maneuvers began, Lieutenant Commander Schmidt Jensen and several members of the crew saw an unidentified object, which moved at high speed toward the southeast. Commander Jensen estimated the speed at over 900 mph ! Within the next week, there were four important sightings. There is no question about the authenticity of the sightings; the British cases were officially reported by the Air Ministry, the others are confirmed by reliable witnesses. All occurred on or about September 20). Reportedly one was shot down. Where did it Land? This video shows the battle that ensued.
