In March 1967, Spanish-speaking intercept operators with the U.S. Air Force Security Service at Homestead AFB south of Miami, Florida, supposedly overheard Cuban transmissions involving a pair of MiG-21 jet fighters that were scrambled to investigate a mysterious intruder, resembling a large, metallic sphere with no wings or any sign of a propulsion system.

What happened next has become a legend in modern UFO lore… and one researcher’s attempts to confirm details about the so-called Cuban jet UFO incident even resulted in a visit from two men in black suits. This week on The Micah Hanks Program, we examine the infamous case, and why the story led to a multi-agency investigation of the UFO researchers who became involved.
