Chile: UFO Declassification Begins

According to Brazil’s UFO magazine, Chile’s Office of Civil Aeronautics handed over a number of videos or audiotapes of UFO events that occurred in its territory. This was done through the Comité de Estudios de Fenomenos Aereos Anómalos (CEFAA, by its Spanish acronym). The news item goes on to state that “out of a total of 183 cases, 12 of these lack an explanation.”

Chile appears to take the subject earnestly and is concerned over UFO manifestations: both the presence of these unknown quantities and their consequences.

Rodrigo Bravo, a Chilean military aviator and a correspondent for Brazil’s Revista UFO, said that the Chilean army has its own aviation corps and pilots, and it has demonstrated its “awareness and interaction with the subject of UFOs on various opportunities.”

Bravo cites a recent statement by the Chilean army: “There is no longer any need to deny or ignore the UFO situation. They represent a real and very serious threat. Today were are challenged by a complex phenomenon whose characteristics cannot be explained within natural terrestrial confines.”

The article reminds readers that in December 2010, the Argentinean Air Force (FAA) created its own Comité de Estudios de Fenómenos Aeroespaciales with a view toward delving deeper into UFO study, increasing the number of official agencies involved with UFO research in South America.

The report ends by reminding its readers that La Tercera TV has published an audio recording between the Chilean pilot and ground control, reporting an anomalous aerial phenomenon.
