COMMUNIQUÉ DE PRESSE – PRESS RELEASEMissing jet from 1953 UFO incident found ?
At 6:22 p.m. on November 23 1953, an F-89 Scorpion jet was scrambled from Kinross Air Force Base near the Michigan Soo to intercept an unidentified object detected in restricted airspace over the Soo Locks. The U.S. fighter was seen on radar over Lake Superior, merging with the craft it was pursuing.Then, it disappeared from radar.Never to be seen again.Ever since, the UFO-theorist circles have been speculating what might have happened.In October 1968, the Sault Star reported that aircraft parts believed to have come from a "high-performance military jet aircraft" had been discovered by prospectors on Lake Superior's Canadian side. Today, the UFO circles have started buzzing again, with speculation that a side-scan sonar image might be the missing F-89 Scorpion. The dive company's website indicates it's currently involved in a forensic investigation of the Canadian wreck site.
A company map shows the search area as being in Ontario waters off the tip of Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula.The dive company also intriguingly indicates that its sonar detected another "interesting" object near the sunken aircraft, that might be part of whatever it was that the jet was pursuing.
