Unidentified submarine objects have been reported on a number of
occasions in FSR, notably from Scottish and New Zealand waters. Here is a
report sent recently to FSR by John A. Keel which adds to the score--
Mr. Åke Franzen of
Stockholm, Sweden, has forwarded the following reports from the newspapers Dagens Nyheter, Svenska Dagbladet, Afionbladet, Expressen.
unidentified submarine has been reported Saturday night (September 13, 1969)
inside the prohibited military sector at Björkö-Arholma,
north of Stockholm.
"Navy Helicopters and a
Coast Guard cruiser were sent immediately to the area to search for the
intruder. It was first sighted by a Finnish ferry outside Norrtälje.
A man stationed on the island of Hämtan said he saw
the submarine from his motorboat near Havssvalget.
He picked the object up with his searchlight and watched it from a distance
of only a few yards. He was unable to identify it. After he radioed his
report to the coast guard an extensive search was held Saturday evening by
aircraft, ships and military troops. No trace of the object was ever found."
