1988 Japanese expedition
In 1988 a Japanese expedition went to the area, led by the Congolese wildlife official Jose Bourges. Members of a Japanese film crew allegedly captured the first evidence of Mokele-mbembe. As they were filming aerial footage from a small plane over the area of Lake Tele, intending to obtain some shots for a documentary, the cameraman noticed a disturbance in the water. He struggled to maintain focus on the object, which was creating a noticeable wake. About 15 seconds of footage was captured, which skeptics have identified as either two men in a canoe or swimming elephants.

Wow! I would love to see this clip. It sounds amazing. The only mokele Mbemba video I've ever seen was one taken from a plane which showed a large animal crossing a lake. Sceptics said it was either a large crocodile!!! or a man standing up in the rear of a long canoe like boat.
We should try to organise an ATS vid hunt and see if we can find it?
However, a note of caution. There are scores of people who say they saw a photograph of a thunderbird nailed up to a barn door with a line of men standing in front of it to give it scale. That picture has never been found although all describe the same picture. There's also supposedly a grainy video of Nessie trapped in the River Ness near a loch gate! People claim to have seen it but no such film has ever surfaced! Maybe this video is destined to go the same way. . .
