It was on 28 June that the unknown craft was discovered, deep in the Stockholm archipelago on the island of Lidingö. It was done outside Bosön during a sailing camps for children in optimistjollar. Three instructors at the Lidingö dingy made the observation.
It may have been a ”probable submarine”, according to experts, as DN consulted and who reviewed a bottenundersökning, testimonials, photos and a mobilfilm from the event.
As DN reported on Monday to have the armed Forces an opposite opinion. Before the parliamentary defence committee said the authority on 6 november that it may have been a sailboat as observed.
the Defense: a Suspected submarine may have been in sailboat
But this is contradicted now by the three seglingsinstruktörerna. They did during the late summer of simple sketches of their memories, sketches and DN can now view.
The first saw a object in the water at the Bosön was Filip Ek, 18 years. He was out on Askrikefjärden in his small boat and helped the children in the optimistjollarna when they cried out that it was something in the water. Filip is the only one of the three observers who saw the craft from seaward. Despite the fact that he was never contacted by the armed Forces.
– There is no one who has talked with me, " says Filip Ek.Link to the graphics
the armed Forces has a private Utfrågningsprotokoll for the navy utfrågare. It provides that an observer should make a sketch of what he or she saw: ”always Let the observer draw their own sketches”. DN asked, therefore, early in september, Philip Oak to draw a sketch. It shows how he between optimistjollarnas sail see an object in the water.
" I see something bigger, wings in the water – very low over the surface. It was perhaps half a meter above the surface.
" We had no boat on the seglarlägret that had a black bottom, this item was clearly black. If it had been any other boat which capsized had we noticed it because we were paying attention to, responds to Philip Oak.
Filip Ek's observation is thus unknown for the armed Forces. However, the authority has in place at Bosön spoken with seglingsinstruktören, Frederick, at close quarters, saw bubbles in the water, and then a ”big black ubåtstorn” about 120 yards from him.Link to the graphics
On the defence request made Frederick the 4th of July drawings of what he had seen. He then made the corresponding sketches of the DN in August.
the Day after the publication in DN 25 October dismissed the Defence forces in the radio Studio A that their stories and images with the words ”what they have seen is a sense, they have filmed something.” In SVT's News hit, the authority stated that ”this was for us a non-issue”.
the Authority's statements have been the next of kin to react. Fredrik is in his teens and called something else. His family has so far not wanted to publish his name and picture, but now leaving Fredrik with DN down to the dock at the Bosön sports academy.
a Witness at the Lidingö: ”I saw a big submarine”
Which shows Fredrik how he saw a ubåtstorn more than 100 feet in front of him, so as he designed it. It was dark, four-six metres long, and stack up two feet above the surface of the water.
" I know how a boat looks, and it was not a sailboat, I saw and photographed. According to me it was clearly a submarine. It had a lot of antennas on it. It was oval at the top and the rectangular tower. And it came up out of the water from nowhere, according to me it is clearly a submarine.
" No, it can't really have been. For there had been a lot of antennas on it and it had not looked the way it did, the reply Fredrik, who has a long habit of sailing with his family's boats.
A third seglingsinstruktör who saw the craft is Oscar Eurenius, 18 years. As the other instructors, he is a van of the sailors, both in the waters around the Bosön sports academy and from långseglingar with the family of Albin 78.
Oscar saw the top of a submarine, dark, shaped like a solid block and with two-three tube-like objects of varying thickness that stack up.
But the armed forces ' investigators never asked out Oscar Eurenius in place at Bosön, but spoke only with him on the phone in a few minutes.
They met me, it was just a phone call. It was not a long conversation, " says Oscar Eurenius
the armed Forces bad never Oscar to draw a sketch, which DN did in August. Then said Oscar Eurenius also to the sides of the craft was straight, which is not the case on the ordinary boats, which narrows down to the waterline
– What I could see, it was not an ordinary boat.
There were other boats, but they were on the other side of the fairway and drove. But there was nobody who was as close as this one, " says Oscar.
the armed forces the conclusion that he may have seen a sailboat responds to Oscar Eurenius briefly:
– It is not so credible. It would be a very low sailboat, without mast, boom and sails.Here is the witnesses own sketches of what see saw Image 1 of 3 Filip Ek, 18 years of age: the Saw between the optimistjollarnas sail a black object sticking up out of the water.
