British Air Ministry
The National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena has been established to collect the facts in the field of "Unidentified Plying Objects" and to conduct an objective investigation into the subject.
In line with our policy of surveying everything, we would like to know if your report on the 6 April 1957 radar alert in Scotland is now available for study, as was indicated by the press accounts received here. We would like to have a copy of the Air Ministry report on this case if possible, along with a copy of the report filed by Wing Commander W. P. Whitworth, of the Scottish radar station.
Would you make a statement about the "untouched photograph" of a UFO published by the Daily Sketch, as being under investigation by your department?
We would like a copy of the photograph if this is possible, as well as other photographs you may now be studying.
If your policy has changed with regard to releasing UFO reports, we would like to obtain copies of the reports and conclusions on the Captain James Howard B. O. A. C. case of June 30, 1954, and of the Fl. Lt. J. R. Salindin R. A. F. case of October 14, 1954, in Essex.
NICAP would like to cooperate with the Air Ministry in a complete investigation of the UFOs. We hope we will be able to work with each other closely in the future.

DIRECTOR OF NICAP
