27. January 13, 1934. 0slo, Norway. An attempt to catch the mysterious flier ended in failure on Friday [12th]. One mysterious flier was seen to alight near the island of Sleipskar on Friday evening. The island is only a few kilometres south of Gjeslingen, where one of the machines was seen to land the day before [11th].
Earlier in the evening beams of light and engine roars were reported in the same area. When the aeroplane was seen to land on the water a message was sent immediately to Rorvik. The cruiser Eagle was docked there. Unfortunately, a pilot was not available when the message was received. These waters are too dangerous, because of the many reefs, for a ship to sail them without a pilot.
People all over Rorvik saw the mysterious aeroplane between two and three in the morning. It seemed to be heading toward Sweden. Around 10.00 p.m. the plane flew over Isfjorden, near Adalsnas [sic- Ådalsnes]. It was a biplane, equipped with pontoons, and vanished over Romsdaksfjorden.
Five persons witnessed its flight. It was at high altitude.
