25.- 1971. 4 h.

Golfo de Cádiz (Cádiz). Estando de pesca tres aficionados, no lejos de la costa marroquí, con un mar sereno, sintieron repentinamente tal agitación de las aguas que a punto estuvieron de zozobrar. Sorprendidos miraron en derredor buscando la causa, suponiendo que pudiera tratarse de un submarino. Entonces vieron a unos 3 ó 4 km. un objeto del tamaño de un autobús, de fuselaje brillante, desprendiendo una gran luminosidad que ascendía en vertical y desapareciendo después de iniciar una trayectoria horizontal.

25.- 1971. 4:00 o’clock

Gulf of Cádiz (Cádiz). While fishing not far from the Moroccan coast, with a calm sea, three fishing aficionados suddenly felt such agitation of the waters that they thought they were on the verge of capsizing. Surprised, they looked around for the cause, supposing that it could be a submarine. Then they saw at about 3 or 4 km [distant] an object the size of a bus, with a shiny fuselage, giving off a great luminosity that was rising vertically and disappearing after initiating a horizontal trajectory. (M. Osuna)
