At the time the head of the physics department Mr. Cheng Zim-hon (鄭瞻寒) started the research.[1] He decided it was a flying object broken body. On July 26, 1947 the news was reported to the 9th division police department from Sichuan University.[1]

After the university reported to the police, head of the department Li Yi-man (李逸民) went to investigate in person.[2] He said it was a US air measurement device. At the time there were also US Air Force personnel stationed in Chengdu.[1]
