CE III By Two Witnesses / Oscar Linke Case
June 17, 1950
Hasselbach, Germany

Brad Sparks:
June 17, 1950; Hasselbach, East Germany (BBU)
2:30 a.m. Central Europe Time. Oscar Linke and daughter Gabriella spotted landed 40-50 ft frying pan-shaped object with two rows of 1 ft holes on the periphery, a 10 ft tall black conical tower on top, about 450 ft away, walked towards it until at about 130 ft away saw two "men" in shiny metallic one-piece suits stooped over, and approached to within 30 ft of the "men," when Gabriella called out, the "men" were alarmed and jumped on the conical tower and went inside [object about 80 ft from witnesses?]. The tower retracted, a cylindrical support column shifted position, object turned from green to red, a slight hum was heard, it lifted off the ground and started spinning, sound turned to a whistling as it accelerated and headed off toward Stockhelm. Linke found a round dug impression in the ground seeming to match the support column of the object. (Hynek UFO Rpt pp. 204-6; Davis-Bloecher 1978; Loren Gross)
