Vinther commented that what mystified him was the object's maneuvers. "You just can't turn an airplane around that fast at tlat speed," he said. The strange plane flew alongside the DC-3 for about four seconds, then eased off below the aircraft and was seen no more. Vinther's description of the craft is indeed strange-he saw it clearly but was flabbergasted by its appearance. "There were no engine mountings on the wings and I saw no exhaust glow," he said. The wings were straight, not swept back like on a B-47 and other jet bombers, and there were no jet pods visible.
