George Gorman Dogfight In Bismark Tribune (10/04/1948)

In a newspaper article published by the Bismark Tribune October, 04, 1948 the newspaper covers the George Gorman UFO dogfight incident that occurred in Fargo, North Dakota.

This UFO incident was eventually the focus of a Project Blue Book investigation.

Lt George Gorman was flying his P51 at night when witnessed a ball of light below him at around 4,500 feet. Gorman pursued the object but the UFO outmaneuvered his P51 accelerating to roughly 400 mph and rising in altitude to 17,000 feet.

Lt George Gorman chased the object for 27-30 minutes before losing sight of the UFO. Lt Gorman’s experience was also witnessed by other individuals.

Unlike most articles about the incident which appear October 3, this article appears the following day. The October 3 articles all include the same information. This October 4 article adds additional information to the story.

Apparently Lt George Gorman was interviewed by Army Officers from Wilbur Wright Field (now Wright Patterson Air Force Base) on Sunday. The Army Officers departed Monday on a B-25.
