Sighting Description: Una palla di fuoco fu vista precipitare in mare da numerose persone. I giornali dell’epoca parlarono di un aereo in fiamme e naturalmente delle operazioni di ricerca effettuate con mezzi navali ed aerei che, come sempre, non portarono a nulla. Numerosi testimoni ricordarono anche di aver udito un forte boato e quindi aver visto la palla di fuoco che precipitava.
