Sighting Description:
Il sig. Giovanni D’Amico di Messina scrisse a Il Giornale dei Misteri riferendo che, in data imprecisata, dopo essere stato a Mili Marina a pescare, e sulla strada del ritorno a casa, incontrò un uomo dell’età di 35-40 anni che gli veniva incontro gridando che un aereo era caduto in mare. Il testimone, allora, osservò il mare e, a circa 700-800 metri di distanza, vide un oggetto rotondo che si alzava in volo, senza rumore, sibilo alcuno, per poi scomparire dopo circa mezzo minuto.

Sighting Description: Mr. Giovanni D’Amico of Messina wrote to Il Giornale dei Misteri (The Journal of Mysteries) that on an unspecified date, after being in Mili Marina to fish, he met a man of 35-40 years of age shouting that a plane had fallen into the sea. The witness then observed the sea and, about 700-800 meters away, he saw a round object that rose in the air, without any noise, no whistling sound, and then disappeared after about half a minute.
