Sighting Description: Un testimone (artigiano secondo una fonte e contadino secondo un’altra) osservò un aereo di nazionalità sconosciuta che, dopo aver perso quota, sarebbe precipitato in mare. Alle operazioni di soccorso parteciparono alcuni mezzi aerei, due motovedetta della Guardia di Finanza, altre imbarcazioni ed una petroliera ma, come avviene quasi sempre in questi casi, non venne ritrovato nulla.

Sighting Description: A witness (a craftsman according to one source and a farmer according to another) observed an airplane of unknown nationality which, after losing altitude, fell rapidly into the sea. Participating in the rescue operations were some aircraft, two motor patrol boats from the Customs Department, other boats, and a tanker but, as almost always happens in these cases, nothing was found.
