22. A few days after the events, B-52 Navigator McCaslin recalls being at
squadron headquarters when target studies officers invited him in to view the
original radarscope film along with “a team from Washington looking at the
incident” (2001, 36-37; 46-47). Also: McCaslin, Patrick, 2000. Transcript of
interview with James Klotz (Sign Oral History Project), 15. In addition, Brad
Runyon recalls that around 1995, while taking a civil services test he ran into
a former high school classmate. During the conversation, he mentioned that he
had been stationed at Minot AFB. In response, the former classmate said that
the CIA had sent him to Minot to investigate an incident between a B-52 and a
UFO. Runyon explained that he was piloting the B-52, and the AF concluded that
what they observed was not a UFO, to which his classmate responded, “They lied.
It was a UFO” (2000, 25). Unfortunately, we have been unable to identify and
locate the former classmate.
