And the Commission on AI is written by Mikhail Volfovich Hodor (50 years old, researcher at the Institute of VIASM):

At the time of observation, he was on the street (standing in line). I have never observed any other phenomena, but, of course, I have read and heard something about "flying saucers" and other UFOs.

At the time of observation (1976, February, time 19-30) was at the corner of the street. The Kuzmin Submariner and the Boulevard of Innovators. There were quite a lot of eyewitnesses (queue), but no acquaintances.

watched, of course, with the naked eye.

I noticed a dark cigar-shaped object moving directly above the street The submariner Kuzmin in the direction of the airport. At first, they took it for an airplane that moved completely silently at an altitude of, as it seemed, 300 meters.

At the same time, its size seemed quite acceptable for an aircraft, for example, the TU-104. I didn't see any wings, but that's not surprising, because the sky was dark. In the nose of the object and in the tail, as if dissolving in the meantime, and then fading, a few points along the hull glowed, evoking the idea of illuminated portholes.

But in general, the picture was not stable. From time to time, a stub of fire appeared on the hull, and then faded away. All this led to the fact that the observers decided: "We see a plane whose engine failed and on which a fire started. The plane is planning to land at the airport."

Both the height and the size of the body and the speed of its movement did not contradict this hypothesis.

But still there was something strange about the object (maybe a slightly unusual shape - a little less "clean" than that of an airplane), which caused doubts.

Maybe the strangeness was also that during the observation (I think another 1.5 - 2 minutes), the body flying with the engine turned off practically did not decrease. it disappeared over the horizon near the airport.

It was quite clear in the evening, in the thick twilight, which did not allow us to see the details of the shape, color, etc.

That's sorry, that's all I can remember today.


List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

Cloud (natural and man-made)

Clouds are the products of condensation of water vapor suspended in the atmosphere, visible in the sky from the surface of the earth. They consist of tiny drops of water and/or ice crystals (called cloud elements).

Airplane / Helicopter

An aircraft is heavier than air for flights in the atmosphere (and outer space (e.g. An orbital aircraft)), which uses the airframe's aerodynamic lift to keep itself in the air (when flying within the atmosphere) and the thrust of the power (propulsion) installation for maneuvering and compensating for the loss of total mechanical energy on drag.
