is the beginning of the communications between Minot, Radar Approach Control
(RAPCON) and the B-52 pilots, when the B-52 is on low-approach over the runway
(Transcription, 0834). 4:02 is when the UFO disappeared from the B-52
radarscope and the B-52 radio transmission resumed (Transcription, 0902).
4:06:51 (9:06:51Z) is the B-52 radarscope chronometer time of the last
radarscope photograph (when the UFO disappeared). Regarding discrepancies in
the transcription, and the B-52 onboard time, see: “Discrepancies and Omissions
in the Transcription of Recorded Conversations, 24 October 1968.”
