Go Back Report # 1476

10-24-1937

 

   In September 1937, “unfamiliar aeroplanes” repeatedly buzzed the Swedish naval installation at Karlskrona. The minister of Defence explained at an inquiry that he had no answer to the mystery but could only confirm that "a foreign machine had flown over the restricted military area." As usual, the plane carried no insignia or identifying marks. On October 24, 1937, the six-man crew of an unnamed fishing boat near Mylingslykten outside of Hammerfest, Norway reported seeing a very large aeroplane resting on the water. As they neared it, it suddenly turned on bright lights and took off, passing so close to their vessel that they feared a crash.
