Star like object travelling horizontally with the horizon.  Checked with three radars with no indication. Optical range finder on infinity so more than 40,000 yards. Had crossed the bow and was apparently increasing its distance. Its color was white with a reddish tinge.  After reaching 10 degrees on the Port bow it seemed to turn to its right, increase its speed and altitude and disappeared on an upward line of flight changing color to white with a bluish tinge. Task commander voice came over the TBS asking for reports of the object. Others ships answer, but MacDougald remained silent when the Admiral wanted to know who observed the object

Date: Aug. 28, 1945
Location: near Iwo Jima, at sea
Time: Daytime
Summary: Sgt. Leonard Stringfield in a C-46 were flying at 10,000 feet, between the Japanese islands of le Shima and Iwo Jima, when their “C-46 suddenly developed trouble in the left engine.” Suddenly, “the plane dipped,” and the engine struggled to keep working. It “sputtered oil” and the C-46 began to lose altitude, dropping approximately 25-50 feet.  Looking out his “starboard-side” window, he was “shocked to see three teardrop-shaped objects.” Looking carefully, he determined that the “three unidentifiable blobs” were “about the size of a dime held at arm’s length.” They were “brilliant white, like burning magnesium.” Flying in a “tight formation,” the objects “were traveling in a straight line through drifts of clouds, seemingly parallel to the C-46 and equal to its speed.” (See detailed report) Note: “magnetic-navigation instrument needles” in the cockpit “went wild.”
