2 F-94's scrambled to intercept UFO that a GOC spotter saw heading southwestr over Boston, no radar contact and F-94's searched area found nothing.

Erwin W. Nelson and wife at Lynn, 9 miles northeast of Boston, at 7:31 p.m. to 7:34 p.m. noticed 2 vapor trails from the climbing jets, looked around, saw in the West a bright silver cigar shaped object about 6 times as long as it was wide heading southwest over Boston at a very high altitude, speed a little faster than the jets.

An identical UFO was following the first some distance back.

No vapor trails. Witnesses watched the F-94's search back and forth far below the UFOs.

At 7:30 Air Force Captain Robert E. Metcalf, Petroleum Officer, 6520th Supply Sq, 6520th Test Support Wing, and USAF air policemen Master sergeant James Stiner & Master sergeant Joseph R. Bosh, 6520th Air Police Sq., near Hangar B, Hanscom Field, Bedford, MA, 15 miles northwest of Boston, West of Lynn, saw the jets, looked for what they were intercepting and saw to the East a 100' long silvery ellipse fatter than a cigar, traveling southwest but did not spot the 2nd UFO.

At 2 points object seemed to hover for a few secondss, then continued at about 40,000'.

Object path intersected contrails of the jets heading southeast.

Metcalf lost sight of object on his way to the tower after a few minutes then caught sight again at about 7:40 p.m., noting it had increased distance considerably, but lost it at the tower and unable to see it with unaided eye or 7 X 50 mm binoculars.
