Storyline

Colonel Pete Moore is commander of the Whitney Radar Test Group, which has been experiencing electrical difficulties aboard its aircraft. To ferret out the problem, he sends a four-man crew on Flight 412. Shortly into the test, the jet picks up three blips on radar, and subsequently, two fighters scramble and mysteriously disappear. At this point, Flight 412 is monitored and forced to land by Digger Control, a top-level, military intelligence group that debunks UFO information. The intrepid colonel, kept in the dark about his crew, decides to investigate the matter himself. Written by Rick Gregory <rag.apa@email.apa.org>

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: This is a UFO - an Unidentified Flying Object. It was photographed at Santa Catalina Island in April of 1966. Look at it again. Closely. Hundreds, even thousands of witnesses have seen similar things appear in the sky. Persons living miles from others have testified independently that UFOs have appeared in a specific place at a specific time.

How much you like this will depend a lot on whether or not you believe in UFOs.
27 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The logic of the prologue to this film is astounding. The narrator says that there have been a huge number of UFO sightings and if only 1/2 of 1% are true, then them's A LOT of aliens out there. Huh?! Unassailable logic, right?!

The film is done in a semi-documentary style. This makes it look rather official and real. The story is about an Airforce flight that claims it saw flying saucers. Glenn Ford and Bradford Dillman are in it but don't have a heck of a lot to do. You also get to see a pre- "Starsky and Hutch" David Soul. It lost my interest after a while...and even if I believed in UFOs, the film was extremely high on talk and light on action. Pretty dull, actually and not a film for Ford fans. Let's just pretend he didn't make this one...
