UFO Article (Blog): “James E McDonald’s radar-visual cases”

Quote from the article:
Introduction
In early 1966, James E McDonald made his first trip to the USAF’s Project Blue Book (Druffel, A. 2002. ‘Firestorm.’  p.55.) Among other things, ‘That afternoon, McDonald read about 80 case reports.’ (Druffel p. 57.) Subsequently, he reviewed many other case files on the visit. He copied a number of case files to take away with him,
McDonald made a second trip to Blue Book, at the end of June 1966. (Druffel, p.137.) A third visit took place the next month. (Druffel, p.143.) ‘In spite of McDonald’s interest in numerous types of UFO reports, he realized that only those reports where documented proof could be obtained would convince the scientific community that UFOs were real. Two types which seemed to hold out hope of proof were: 1. Photo cases which held up under the most careful scrutiny; and 2. Radar-visual cases, where the objects were seen visually and monitored on radar at the same time.’ (Druffel, p.287.)
‘Reading that the Condon Committee had had access to R-V cases which were not known to the UFO community, he decided to visit Wright-Patterson AFB again to search for them. ‘At the end of June 1969…He spent the next two days  going through the files for the fourth time and hand-typed notes on 18 cases. On this trip he carried with him a list of cases, mostly R-V, which he was most interested in tracking down.’ (Druffel, p.337.) ‘On his fourth Blue Book visit, McDonald was still denied access to classified R-V cases.’ (Druffel, p.338.)
‘…on May 18 (1970?-KB) he was hard at work in the Historical Division, Aerospace Science Institute at Maxwell AFB in Montgomery, Alabama…But once he started studying the R-V files, McDonald realized he’d struck a bonanza. He spent an extra week there, copying literally hundreds of them…Greatly stimulated, he brought the files home and spent the next two weeks studying each case…’ (Druffel, p.478.)”
