This week I'm talking to Graeme Rendall about his book 'Intercept and Identify: Aerial UFO Encounters, 1953-1954'.

In the aftermath of two weekends in July 1952 when airspace over the American capital was filled with strange lights and radar contacts, the US Air Force sought to shut down the UFO issue, falling back on "identifications" such as balloons, weather anomalies and cockpit reflections. Yet the following two years saw numerous reports being filed about encounters with strange objects and lights in the skies over the United States - and elsewhere around the world. This book looks at pilot and aircrew sightings from 1953 and 1954 - two years' worth of incredible reports from across the globe involving fighter jet and transport crews, airliner captains and private pilots. Many witness statements were dismissed in favour of explanations that simply don't make sense when referring back to the only evidence - the testimony itself. This new book continues the author's look at aerial UFO encounters during the 1940s and 1950s - and the fevered attempts behind the scenes to explain the problem, and when that wasn't possible, to diminish its importance entirely.

Graeme Rendall is a full time author and a commentator on the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) issue. He is also a contributor to the "The Debrief", an American news website dealing with cutting edge science, tech and defence news, and a frequent guest on various podcasts looking at UAP. He also writes articles on the subject for UAP Media UK. Between 1990 and 1992, he was the Editor of an amateur aviation magazine. Graeme has written a critically-acclaimed work looking at the "Foo-Fighters" witnessed during World War Two and the numerous wartime cases that occurred before the term was coined in November 1944. He has been an aviation and World War Two history enthusiast from an early age, when he was given Airfix model aircraft kits "to keep him quiet". Married to Jo, he lives in rural Northumberland, between the beach and the hills.
