AIRMEN SEE SAUCER HIGH IN SKY
RCAF, North Bay, Ontario 
Date: Tuesday January 1, 1952
General knowledge of this sighting does not come out until April 15 & 16 when it hits the papers that a flying saucer investigation is being ordered. Two officers working at the North Bay Air Force Base, the most important of the five NORAD installations, report seeing a red-orange saucer moving at supersonic speeds that could zig-zag and dive. They watched it fly around the daytime sky, changing directions for about eight minutes without making a sound.Yeo who was familiar with all conventional aricraft, guided missils said the object was "not an aircraft, a balloon or a meteor...Frankly, I don't know what it was and, for lack of better words, we called it a flying saucer."
 
At the time the Air Force declined comment and downplayed the sighting. This sighting together with another at the same place on April 12 leads Ottawa to order the Intelligence Service to investigate.

Intelligence Officers To Investigate Reports Flying Saucers Sighted

Flying Saucer Probe Ordered After Reports at North Bay

New Year's Night

WO. W. J. Yoe a master telecommunications superintendent and Sgt. D. V. Crandell an instrument technician, reported seeing a flying "saucer" the night of January 1.

Their description:

"The saucer appeared to be at great height, probably outside the earth's atmosphere. It appeared to be moving at supersonic speed."

They said they timed the object for eight minutes and 43 seconds as it moved roughly parallel to the earth. They said it zig-zagged, climbed and dived.

In January
WO. W. J. Yoe a master telecommunications superintendent and Sgt. D. V. Crandell an instrument technician, reported seeing a flying saucer the night of January 1.

"The saucer appeared to be at great height, probably outside the earth's atmosphere. It appeared to be moving at supersonic speed."

The disk was described as reddish-orange in color, "similar to a rock burning."

An R.C.A.F. spokesman said today there is no reason to doubt the validity of the reports since the men concerned are seasoned veterans familiar with conventional aircraft.
