Just prior to our sighting the diverted B-52 in the WSW the object had
descended gradually and for 1 minute or 2 had appeared to be obstructed by
trees… . When the B-52 flew in the vicinity (SSE) it was no longer seen in
that location. (AF-117, 5, 9). Adams: “Right before the B-52 was seen. The UFO
descended gradually behind what could have been trees. Hard to say about trees
it was so dark” (AF-117, 5); and “B-52 west and much higher than UFO” (3). Isley: “It [UFO] went low and out of sight in the southeast” (AF-117, 5).
