1953 - Two U.S. Air Force F-84G Thunderjets of the 36 TFW, based in West Germany, crossed into Czechoslovakian airspace. They were intercepted by Czech MiG-15 Fagots and one F-84G was shot down by Jaroslav Sramek.
The pilot ejected and survived.
In 1975, a story surfaced from a gentleman named Clarence Dargie, claiming intimate knowledge of a strange experience near Otis Air Force Base, Massachusetts in 1953. A radio station, KTRH in Houston, Texas, interviewed Dargie, getting these details:
  "I was stationed at an Air Force Base on Cape Cod (Massachusetts) in 1953, about June of 1953. We had one special F-94C type aircraft. It was a two-seat, fighter-interceptor with a pilot in the front and a radar operator in the rear cockpit, both being covered by one canopy. This aircraft was spotted out in an alert area, so whenever we had a UFO contact, that aircraft would be immediately launched, with standby crews 24 hours a day. There was some sort of classified electronic gear aboard. Even I don't know what it was, because any reference to the gear (in the resulting investigation) would appear as 'the secret so-and-so.'

This particular night we had a UFO contact. This was just about at dark. The craft took off. The pilot's name was Suggs, Captain Suggs. The radar observer was a Lieutenant Robert Markhoff. According to Captain Suggs' sworn statement (incidentally, Suggs survived), they took off on the East-West runway, heading directly West toward Buzzard's Bay, which is some 12 miles away. The pilot said he pulled it off the runway - this was full after-burner - and began his climb-out. At 1500 feet, he had cleared the runway and was over the base rifle range. The aircraft went completely, utterly dead! Unlike an automobile, which has only one central power source, if your battery fails in an automobile, then you have nothing……your engine quits, the lights go out, the radio, and all these other things. But an aircraft has a redundancy built into it, in that the different systems each have their own power source; and the possibility of all these power sources failing at the same time is astronomical. The odds are - - I don't think you can even calculate them.

However, at 1500 feet - he finds himself in this situation. His aircraft is completely dead. His engine has flamed out, navigation lights, instruments, radar. It took him a couple of seconds to realize what had happened. Immediately he cut the nose down to keep the aircraft from stalling, because there was no possibility of accomplishing an air start. A hard bail-out? The bail-out sequence in this aircraft is that when the commander gives the order to bail-out, the radar observer operates the handle, which blows the canopy off of the aircraft; then the radar observer himself ejects. The pilot then, on hearing this second explosion, is clear to eject. That's to keep them both from going out at the same time and colliding as they leave the aircraft. However, Captain Suggs said he did not have the time to wait for the second explosion, because now the aircraft is in about a 75 degree down angle toward the ground at 185 knots.

At about 600 feet, he went out of the aircraft and was about two to three seconds from impact. He ejected from the aircraft. His chute opened and acted like an air brake... it slowed him down, and in one swing he was on the ground. To make a long story short, the aircraft itself… somewhere between the time when he separated from the aircraft and the next two or three seconds….that aircraft literally vanished! It has never been found to this day."

Case 19-B Walesville- Westmorland. 1954.

A military aircraft sent to intercept an unknown object tracked on radar abruptly burst into flames forcing the crew to eject. According to the official account: " As the pilot started a descent, he noted that the cockpit temperature increased abruptly." Scanning his instruments the pilot noticed the fire warning light was on, and both crew members ejected successfully. The report decided: "The conclusion was: unknown"!
