Large Snake
« on: August 14, 2005, 06:29:41 AM »
We were on a shift change on a 1000 meter bell system in Abidjan (Ivory Coast)
En-route we had to go into Dakar for a stop.

As we came in from the jungle we made a long low approach to the runway going toward the sea.
At about 30 to 40 miles out we passed a river 3/4 angle to plane. We were at altitude 250' and doing
about 170 mph in final approach.

I looked out window and saw a black snake coming out of water its length was 65 to 75 feet long
it was at least 4 feet thick best I could tell. At first I thought it just looked like a snake but as I watched it it
got smaller as the tail came out of the river, the head was not seen as it was in jungle on first sitting.

Corky Downer and myself both saw it and commented on it to each other. It did not slither it just moved
you could see the muscles on back moving. The Sun was right to see it properly.

As to where I no you could look at map and tell as we did  a straight on approach to the runway from Jungle.

Corky Downer and  I are both pilots and Divers Deep Sea we were working at 2060 feet in a 1000 meter
dive bell from a Company called (COMEX) Fr...........I was project manager he was chief pilot for shift.

What do you think it was if not a snake?
Your attitude is the only thing they can't take from you.

I no it was a snake Anaconda but the size is the item of interest.
Its Crypto because no one has seen a 65 foot Anaconda to date.
