The report:

Subject: F-94 ENCOUNTER OVER KOREA. MAY 31, 1952
Date: August 21, 2005
From: [eMail]@[-]tations.com

I, [Firstname] [Name], COLONEL USAF RETIRED, WAS THEN A LIEUTENANT RADAR
INTERCEPT OFFICER ON THIS MISSION AND ALERTED MY PILOT THEN
CAPT. [Firstname] [Name] TO THIS LIGHT TRACKING BELOW US AT ABOUT
8,000', WE WERE AT 15,000' I CALLED BROMIDE WHO WAS OUR FORWARD
RADAR CONTROLLER; THEY HAD NOTHING ON THEIR RADAR AND TOLD US TO
INVESTIGATE. WE WINGED OVER TO OUR LEFT AND BEFORE WE HAD DESCENDED
FAR THE OBJECT WAS ON OUR TAIL. WE FLEW LUFTBERRYS WITH IT UP TO
30,000' AND THE HEAD ON PASSES. IT THEN LEFT US LIKE WE WERE STANDING
STILL. AS I RECALL WE ESTIMATED THE SPEED OF THE UNKNOWN AT ABOUT 2500
KNOTS, NOT 400. OF COURSE THERE WAS NOTHING THAT WE KNEW OF THEN
THAT WAS THAT FAST. THROUGH IT ALL WE FELT RATHER FRUSTRATED IN
THAT IT APPEARED TO BE PLAYING WITH US WITH NOTHING OVERT, AND
WE WERE UNABLE TO IDENTIFY ANYTHING BUT A BLINDING WHITE LIGHT.
I WAS NEVER ABLE TO PAINT IT ON MY RADAR NOR DID THE GROUND RADAR
CONTROL. I ASKED THE INTERROGATION TEAM THAT CAME TO KOREA FROM JAPAN
IF THEY HAD SIMILAR SIGHTINGS, THEY HAD BUT SAID NO ONE HAD BEEN AS
CLOSE AS WE; WE HAD PASSED EACH OTHER ON THOSE HEAD ON PASSES AT
50' TO 100'. WHEN WE CAME DOWN FROM THE MISSION I WAS SOAKING WET
FROM PERSPIRATION.

THE FOLLOWING DAY THE INFANTRY ON THE LINE REPORTED THIS LARGE ROUND
FLAT OBJECT HAD PASSED OVER THEM AT THE TIME WE FIRST REPORTED THE LIGHT
AND IT WAS AGAIN REPORTED BEING VISUALLY SEEN BY SUPPORT PERSONNEL AT BROMIDE.

Note:

This is a classic case, more information here.
