It was common back then for people to think they were looking at an air ship or 'Blimp'
There are a ton of reports of this nature to be found though a half bottle of whiskey prevents me from searching for them..
Still, i remember reading about a spate of sightings across America (maybe) and hundred or so years ago where people actually spoke with the occupants and were told they were (variously) stopping for water or to make repairs..
And uso's are pretty common as well when all's said and done, as for the path of destruction, well, maybe something was wrong. It was in Ireland so maybe they'd been sampling the local beverage's... i can say from current experience that it would definatly affect your driving skills.. lol

Dellschau left a series of “scrapbooks” that were written in German, English, and in code. They were found by a man named Navarro in 1969 who spent years decoding and researching Dellschau’s life and claims. One being that airships were common in Germany in the mid 1800’s.

Sounds like a great story.
What i find most interesting is that the further you go back in history, the more vivid and strange the storys get, what really grabs me is that they are all so similer.
You can go back 100 years and find stories like this one, go back another 50-100 and you have stories from the old west before planes existed, back a few hundred more years and yet more stories of objects in the sky, go back thausands of years and tablets and cave pictures depect yet more of the same.
Does anyone else think we are missing something so obvious the rest of the universe is giggling in the backround waiting for us to "get it" so they can jump out from behind the sofa and say "supprise!, what took you guys so long"? - i do
Even Christopher Columbus, it appears, saw a UFO. While patrolling the deck of the Santa Maria at about 10:00 PM on October 11, 1492, Columbus thought he saw "a light glimmering at a great distance." He hurriedly summoned Pedro Gutierrez, "a gentleman of the king's bedchamber," who also saw the light. After a short time it vanished, only to reappear several times during the night, each time dancing up and down "in sudden and passig gleams." The light, first seen four hours before land was sighted, was never explained."

Hi Arken I read a book called Passport to Magonia by Jaques Valle . He describes events similar to the one in your post with people seeing and talking to the occupants of strange airships it is a riveting read if you haven't read it already I really recommend it.
