The following events happened on this day of July 30:
- July 30, 1952, the Roland Hughes sighting was the UFO encounter of Flight Sgt. Roland Hughes while engaged in a training flight over West Germany. Hughes reported that he was intercepted by what he described as a “gleaming silver, metallic disc” that paced his jet before accelerating away. What lended credibility to this case was that ground-based military radar tracked the UFO flying at impossible speeds.
