Sighting Description: La solita segnalazione di un piccolo aereo che stava precipitando a circa quattro miglia dalla costa, lasciando una lunga scia luminosa e del fumo dopo l’impatto con l’acqua. Le ricerche, effettuate anche con un elicottero della Polizia di Pescara, non detterò alcun risultato, ma alcuni militari trovarono sulla spiaggia quattro involucri di razzi rossi da segnalazione. E’ probabile quindi che l’avvistamento possa essere spiegato con l’osservazione di uno di questi razzi, utilizzati probabilmente da contrabbandieri o da clandestini in procinto di sbarcare.        

Sighting Description: A usual report was received of a small airplane that was falling about four miles from the coast, leaving a long bright trail and smoke after impact with the water. The search, carried out with a helicopter from the police in Pescara, did not produce any results, but some soldiers found four red casings of signal rockets on the beach. Therefore, it is probable that the sighting could be explained as an observation of one of these rockets, probably used by smugglers or illegal immigrants on the point of coming ashore.
