The jets roared into action late Saturday night when a new invasion of "Saucers" was picked up on radar here.

Two jet pilots, sent up by the Air force to investigate the mysterious objects, pursued the saucers but were unable to make contact before they disappeared.

The Air Force announced that the strange phenomenon, "between four and twelve in number," were first sighted at 9:08 p.m. Saturday by radar operators at the CAA air route traffic control center at National Airport.
