ACUFO:

ACUFO is my comprehensive catalog of cases of encounters between aircraft and UFOs, whether they are "explained" or "unexplained".

The ACUFO catalog is made of case files with a case number, summary, quantitative information (date, location, number of witnesses...), classifications, all sources mentioning the case with their references, a discussion of the case in order to evaluate its causes, and a history of the changes made to the file.

Aircraft information:

No aircraft inforamtion is given.

Discussion:

Map.

Because the date is given as February "19/20", 1944, the sighting was probably nocturnal, probably by RAF night bombers.

The information is evidently too meager to risk any sure assessment.

Evaluation:

Totally insufficient information.
