Observation of a cigar-shaped object in the Volosovsky district of L.O. in September 1982. None of the eyewitnesses would like to mention their last name in publications.

At the end of September, eyewitnesses were harvesting potatoes in the Volosovsky district on September 22 before lunch (i.e. at 14-15 or 14-30, according to other sources around 12-00) they worked in a field 5 km from the village of Khudanki (there was a base camp); next to the fields is the village. Raskulitsy and there are the ruins of the estate of Barin Wrangel. The weather was clear and sunny, although it was already cool (by the way, something like the aurora borealis was observed the day before). There were several teachers and about 20 students on the field, scattered over a certain area of the field (quite extensive; the field itself is huge). A silvery dot appeared above the far end of the field, which seemed to be some kind of "airship" or "helicopter", clearly "voluminous". almost vertically, she "fell from above" and "stuck" - but not into the ground, but froze, either over the field, or further away - over the forest, about 4 kilometers from them (according to eyewitnesses), at an altitude of 50 m. She stood in place for a while and "darted" at high speed and disappeared behind the forest.

But it wouldn't have attracted attention if it hadn't been for the rest. A few minutes after that, the narrator and some of the students headed across the field to the road to Khudanki, where a covered van was waiting for them to leave for lunch. I had to walk 700-800 meters across the field, which took about 15 minutes. The road was separated from the field by trees, so that what was happening, say, in the field could not be seen from the road. going out to the road, the students climbed into the back, the narrator got into the cab, and the driver began to start the engine. He did not manage to do this for "20 minutes". In addition, at about the same time, on a nearby section of road with a length of 100 meters, the engine of a thunderstorm truck, as well as a tractor, a combine harvester and another car stalled at the same time. All these 20 minutes, the drivers of 4 cars tried to understand the cause of the malfunction and even tried to help each other. then suddenly the engines started up and everyone left.

Another witness: At the beginning, he noticed a dark, "with a glimmer" point, hanging motionless. "Had a diameter." It hung over the forest beyond the far edge of the field for 10-15 minutes. then she disappeared from view. He doesn't remember exactly how: I didn't watch it all the time, although they were afraid that it was a traffic police helicopter, one of those that monitored roads for non-compliance with safety regulations in the fields. Then I got distracted, and when I decided to see where this "traffic police helicopter" was now, Yu saw: 20-30 meters (according to his assessment) above the field, over a place 25-30 meters away from it, also hanging motionless (apparently not completely motionless, but slightly drifting from side to side), an absolutely soundless cigar-shaped object. More precisely, it looked like a "bus with smoothed corners and edges", 12-15 meters long, 4 meters wide and high (?). From below, about in the middle, short slightly beveled "flaps" protruded. No other details were noticeable. The color is silver. There are no signs of engine operation. no haze, everything is clear and precise. Metallic luster. They did not feel fear, but there was a state of "seriousness". The cigar hung for 10-15 minutes, then slowly, at an angle of about 45 degrees to its side, shifted in a parallel skew and stopped almost directly above it. I hung in the new place for another minute. Then she slowly walked forward with her nose, walked over the field for about 3 minutes - "at the speed of a man" - then turned her back to the observer and very quickly sped off over the edge of the field and beyond the forest, gaining altitude. In the story of the cars (he had heard of her) he names the brands of the car in more detail: their van, 2 KAMAZ trucks and a combine harvester ("Niva"?). He talks with pleasure, says that he has already done it "a thousand times."

The third witness: remembers the whole situation worse, but mostly agrees with the previous ones; although in estimates of the height of the clarity of vision, etc., "I saw a dark dot at the beginning - it could be anything, including a traffic police helicopter." I lost sight of it. Then I saw "an oval of silver color that did not change for a minute." Then this oval flattened and disappeared somewhere. In addition, he has poor eyesight. He doesn't remember about the car story.

Another witness: Noticed something cigar-shaped with "wings", believes that they were moved to the tail. it was moving silently, at the speed of a helicopter (i.e. it estimates a speed of about 150 km per hour) - at the time when he saw it. Admits that the speed changed, but does not remember exactly how. The height is estimated at about 600 m. No body parts, portholes, etc. To the question "Could portholes in principle be visible at that distance and in those conditions, if they were available?", he replied: "Maybe not, especially since everything was very shiny," but still believes that they did not exist. I did not see any freezes (he was not close to those who saw). He does not know about the history of cars, or does not remember. The wings shifted to the tail looked more like a tail unit, but without vertical parts. The object has gone beyond the forest. "The color is strange," steel? Estimates of the height of the hovering made by other witnesses are considered overly optimistic, although he did not observe the hovering himself. Indicating what has been said, it can be assumed that he observed the final stage of removal.

The attitude of eyewitnesses to the incident and to the survey: with pleasure, but still with caution.


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

The airship

The aircraft lighter than air, which is a combination of the balloon with the mover (usually a screw with an electric motor or internal combustion engine) and the system of the orientation control (steering control), through which the airship can move in any direction regardless of the direction of air flow.
The shape of the airships are divided into:

Airplane / Helicopter

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

A rotorcraft in which the lift and thrust required for flight are created by one or more main rotors powered by an engine or several engines. They differ in maneuverability, the ability to hover and almost vertical takeoff.
