A ghost plane
toys RAF

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.
