>Subject: Interviewing Peruvian Military UFO Researchers

>I am presently in Lima, Peru, interviewing local military UFO
>researchers. 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

>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

>I have published some photos of the interview on my Facebook


>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.
