Flying saucers against aircraft

Hong Kong, July 16. -- The pilot of a Beechcraft plane, on a meteorological mission over Hong Kong, said he saw around eight o'clock a "flying saucer" heading towards his plane at very high speed.

The pilot, who was then at an altitude of 5,700 meters, tried in vain to avoid the craft, a kind of shiny disc which damaged the left wing of the aircraft and disappeared.
