Go Back Report # 705


USOs reported           

       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.       


       "Is there a strange submarine in the waters outside of Hälsingland? A collision occurred yesterday, Thursday, November 20, 1969, 16 nautical miles from Galström, south-east Sundsvall. The helmsman of the trawler Silverö told the press that a light appeared just before the collision and then disappeared. It was visible for about ten minutes.      
       "After the collision, the trawler heaved to and remained stationary. There was no sign of the object which caused the collision. The revenue cutter TV 245 searched the area but found nothing.

       "The press reported that no Swedish units were in the vicinity at the time. The collision was severe and must have damaged the object. The trawler is now undergoing repairs at Ljusne. The damage was apparently caused by a very sharp object. No traces of stones or rubble were found in the ruptures but two reddish-brown spots have been discovered on the damaged hull. A planking about one metre below the waterline was badly damaged as were three planks above the waterline.
