Please correct my use of the past simple, Past continuous or Past perfect in the following passage:
One day a fisherman on the Aral Sea was sailing home after a day's work. It was raining and he didn't feel very happy. He didn't have a very good day and didn't catch many fish. Suddenly, he heard a strange noise. A cow was flying towards his boat! The cow hit the boat and nearly destroyed it. When the fisherman got back home, people had not believed his story. Then, some time later, the US Air Force showed that the fisherman was telling the truth. While one of their transport planes was flying over the Aral Sea, a cow on the plane went mad and the pilot had thrown it out into the sea.
