A BILBAO (Espagne)


     Plusieurs pêcheurs de Plencia (province de Biscaye) ont aperçu dimanche un O.V.N.I. (objet volant non identifié) de grande taille, évoluant au-dessus de la mer, à un mile de la côte. Le même objet, ou un autre semblable, avait été vu déjà samedi à midi par d’autres personnes.

(Divers journaux du 21-11-1967).




     On Sunday [19th], several fishermen from Plencia (province of Biscay) spotted a UFO (unidentified flying object) of large size, flying above the sea, one mile from the coast. The same object, or another similar one, had already been seen at noon on Saturday [18th] by other people.

(Various newspapers from [Tuesday] 21-11-1967).

My source: Thanks to Spanish researcher Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos for e-mailing a copy of this to me on September 20, 2010, in which he said, “I am enclosing the LDLN source, you will realize that location is NOT Palencia, but Plencia (province of Vizcaya, north of Spain) and correct date is November 19, not the 17th. Moreover, on that date, the Leonids meteor shower is at its maximum, therefore, most probably this was a fireball. I have no more info, and you could update your records with the above.”
