In the last years I'm dedicated to interviewing men >on this continent who, while on military duty and as part of >their military routine, have been engaged in UFO investigations. >I've interviewed, in Brazil, among others, Brazilian Air Force >Brigadiers Jose Carlos Pereira, of the Brazilian Airspace >Defense Command, and Socrates Monteiro, a former Minister. >Then I went to other countries in South America which have had >in the past or still have in full activity _Oficial_ research >organizations. In Montevideo, Uruguay, I have interviewed >Colonel Ariel Sanchez, from the Uruguayan Air Force's Comision >Receptadora y Investigadora de Denuncias de Objectos Voladores >No Identificados (CRIDOVNI), the official committee of UFO >investigations in that country. The interview was fully >published to this List. >And last month, in Santiago, Chile, I interviewed General >Ricardo Bermudez, a retired Chilean Air Force jet pilot and >presently in charge of the Centro de Estudios de Fenomenos >Aereos Anomalos (CEFAA), the local official UFO investigations >centre. Both conversations were extremely successful and have >yielded a lot of interesting UFO information. >In Peru, yesterday, I interviewed retired Peruvian Air Force >Colonel Julio Chamorro, who is now a flight navigator with a >cargo company that operates flights to the Peruvian Amazon in >Antonovs. Chamorro was the man who initiated the process of >creation, from 1999 to 2001, of the Air Force's Oficina de >Investigacion de Fenomenos Anomalos Aeroespaciales (OIFAA), an >office to receive reports of UFO sightings, centralize and >co-ordinate their investigations and inform the population. It >was all official. >Unfortunately, OIFAA have been paralyzed in the last years, but >plans to reactivate it are well advanced. Yesterday, talking to >Commander Chamorro, I learned that the office was established >after a determination made by the former-President Alberto >Fujimori, in the 90s, after an increase of UFO sightings in >several areas of the country, especially the capital, Lima, and >some military installations. >One such installations is the La Joya Air Force Base, in >Arequipa, in the deserts of south of Peru. It was there that >fighter pilot Oscar Santa Maria made his astounding pursuit of a >UFO at close range, in the 80s. I have learned that the base was >full of Soviet military at that time, as part of Peruvian- >Soviet Union agreements to perform military operations in the >country, including training and installation of defense >apparatus. >Commander Chamorro also gave me details of an incident, of which >he was one of the 2,000 witnesses, while serving as an officer >at La Joya. He also gave me details of many interesting cases >that were registered all over the country and investigated by >OIFAA. Among them, the sighting that former-President Fujimori, >along with several of his security detail, had of a huge UFO >over the Peruvian Amazon, near the city of Iquique. It is >assumed that it was after that experience that OIFFA had its go >ahead. >I have published some photos of the interview on my Facebook >page: >facebook.com/ajgevaerd >Have a great weekend. This is what I call research! Congratulations, Geva. This effort shows that Latin America is ahead of many first world nations regarding UFO phenomena. Thiago Listen to 'Strange Days...
