The #1 Paranormal News Site
Another one from Brazil, maybe this one is better known outside here, and this time with a english subtitled video:
In the night of May 19, 1986, 6:30PM local time, the São José dos Campos airport control tower (TWR-SJ) reports three light spots, changing colors, over the city. Some minutes later, at 7pm, both the approach center of São Paulo (APP-SP) and the area control center (ACC-SP) register in their radars three UFOs flying in the area of São José dos Campos. At the same time, people saw an object flying in high speed over the city of Rio de Janeiro. High intensity of communication between the air traffic control of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Goias state was registered at this moment. 8:15pm Brasilia air control report Military about the light spots over São José dos Campos and São Paulo control confirms again three "plots" in their radar. In few minutes this number becomes 8. Minutes later, the Brazilian Air Force colonel Ozires Silva (founder of Embraer) was flying from Brasilia to São José dos Campos in his Xingu (450 km/h max speed) over the city of Poços de Caldas. Flying at about 21.000ft, Ozires and his co-pilot were called by Brasilia and questioned about any different activity, and at that moment they reported nothing abnormal. 9:01pm Ozires reported an static object with intense light changing colors from yellow to red over the city of São José dos Campos and then imediatly tried to approach it, but he said it wasn't possible. Then he turned 180 degrees, in direction of the neighbor city of Taubaté, where another similar object was visible. Now flying only 600 meters over the ground, Ozires reported an cigar shaped object flying even lower than him. After that, Ozires was going out of fuel and went back and landed in SJC. While that, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Brasilia and Goias were registering multiple objects in their radars.
9:23pm, the airforce was called and at 9:34pm, the first aircraft, a F-5E (max speed 1700 km/h), left Rio de Janeiro with the objective of approaching the UFOs. The pilot reported a white light flying lower than him, that started to speed up and change colors until it was 10 degrees above him. At this moment, his plane radar registered a target 12 miles away from him, flying over the ocean. He aborted mission due to fuel at critic level.
10:15pm, the second airforce plane, a Mirage F-103, left the Anápolis (Goiás) base, and not much time after that saw the target, moving in a slalom movement in front of him, keeping a regular distance of it. The aircraft was over Mach 1 speed when the object suddenly accelerated (the pilot, Captain Amarildo de Freitas, says that the object was about a Mach 15 speed) and left the plane radar. 10:50pm, the 3rd (and my favorite) plane left Rio de Janeiro to investigate one of the radar plots. In that position he found a red light, when he tried an approach and failed. At this moment, Cap. Marcio Jordão reported 15 objects in his radar, flying in the same speed of him and in formation, 7 in one side and 6 at the other side, 2 in different positions.
The last 2 planes left their bases at 11:17 and 11:36 PM and both didn't report any visuals or radar plots.
Other planes reports: -Geraldo Pinto, pilot of the VARIG Cargo Boeing 707 flying from São Paulo International Airport to Rio de Janeiro's Galeão, reported a light flying with him in for some time.
-Tripulation and 27 passengers on VOTEC 241 reported "a flying object with extreme shiny light, changing colors green, red and white" near their plane.
Yeah, I typed a lot lol, but if anyone have interest, I can translate some of the important parts of the official reports, recently released by the autorities.
And here is the video, with english translation, of the TV news at that time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1inF8zkTbg
