Vliegende schotel boven de „Grote Beer” NEW YORK. 30 Juli.

„We hebben een vliegende schotel gezien", zei kapitein Boshoff van de „Groote Beer" gisteren bij aankomst in de New Yorkse haven. Hij vertelde dat hij en zijn officieren de vliegende schotel, die veel weg had van een halve maan, gedurende tien minuten door verrekijkers hadden kunnen volgen, ongeveer 130 kilometer uit de kust. De schotel was volgens kapitein Boshoff grijs-wit van kleur met enige heldere vlekken. De bemanning zag de schotel na ongeveer tien minuten op ongeveer 14 kilometer hoogte in de wolken verdwijnen.
