A ghost plane
London. -- Royal Air Force has sought for one week to clear up the
mystery of a phantom plane which regularly flies over the English
coast near Norwhich about midnight at a very great altitude.
The night interceptors, even the latest "Mosquito" models, never
managed to intercept it. Coming from the North Sea and flying
sometimes at a speed exceeding 640 kms per hour, the apparatus
always moves towards the interior and disappears in a few minutes.
It avoids the interception with such an ease that the experts
think that it could be equipped with a radar set.
This plane, some aeronautical experts think, might be a radio-controlled experimental
flying bomb. In this case, they estimated, the experiment was performed
by another country, for it could not be a an English machine.
