1986, HWANGE NATIONAL PARK, ZIMBABWE, FOUR MEN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

African ufologist Cynthia Hind apparently reported on a sighting in 1983 near the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe.

Some evening that year 1983, at 08:00 p.m., four men had arrived back from the capital and were walking to their village along some thick brush when they suddenly noticed a very bright light in the sky. They stopped and watched as the light descended towards them.

The men hid behind some trees as the light came lower and lower, and they now saw that it was a bright disc-shaped object that landed nearby.

A door on top of the object opened and two "men with light skin" stepped out and floated towards the ground.

At this point the witnesses panicked and ran towards the village.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near the Hwange Game Preserve Zimbabwe, on 1983, at 08:00 p.m., four men had arrived back from the capital and were walking to their village.

They were walking along some thick brush when they suddenly noticed a very bright light in the sky. They stopped to watch as the light descended towards them.

The men hid behind some trees as the light came lower and lower. They now could see that it was a bright disc-shaped object that hand landed nearby.

A door on top of the object opened and two men with light skin stepped out. They floated towards the ground.

At this point the witnesses panicked and ran towards the village.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Cynthia Hind, Phenomenon 40 years of Flying Saucers.

Points to consider:

The information which is available to me is totally insufficient, the witnesses are not named, the date is vague, it is not reported whether the UFO was noisy or not, the occupants are undescribed except that they are defined as human, no observation distance is indicated and so on. As it stands, it does look like an helicopter landing in the night, the only weirdness is the mention that the occupants floated to the ground.
