Peru's air force is reopening an office responsible for investigating ufos due to "increased sightings of anomalous aerial phenomena" in the country's skies.

The unit will bring together sociologists, archaeologists, astronomers, meteorologists and air force personnel to analyse these events, Vucetich told the Guardian. "Many people don't report UFO sightings because they fear they will be labelled mad or made fun of, but nowadays with new technology - cellphone videos, Facebook, Twitter - they can be much more open, without feeling that they are the only ones who have seen what they've seen," he said.

Fair enough.  At least the departments are communicating with each other :cry:

Someone obviously feels the need to get to the bottom of it all.  Unlike the US and the UK for example.

Um, I think the US walked this path like 50 years ago?

Now we get Peru's Blue Book?

I didn't realise there were so many reports in Peru.

Here is a short documentary regarding a 'dog fight' with a UFO:



The pilot (Oscar Santa Maria) fires 64 rounds of his 30mm canon and the bullets appear to pass right through the object.

The case found it's way to the US authorities.  The PAF still regard this 1980 incident as one of the most credible sightings according to the documentary.

Lance Corporal Weygandt was stationed in Peru when he was asked to report to a crash site of a mysterious aircraft shot down into a mountainside. He said it was unlike anything he had seen. After visiting the site, he was arrested and held in a cell for days.

This guy gives a very vivid description of the craft and the sensations caused by being in close proximity to a non-terrestrial craft.  Well worth listening to imho.

Call me crazy, but Im expecting nothing new from all this,... I applaud the effort though.

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

How you approach something usually decides what you get out of it.

That's the cynicism I've been going on about Hazz.

Anyway give it a listen.

Also watch the doc on Oscar Santa Maria.

Can you blame me,... Its been 70 years of pure and utter nonsense,... fraud, forgery, deception, misrepresentation, ignorance, misinterpretations, equipment errors, out-of-date references and overlooked results that (at best) ends up with the classic unidentified flying objects.

Countries keep releasing their "UFO files" but nothing ever changes, its just more of the same ol same.

No worries Hazz.  I am frustrated too by the number of hoaxes on youtube etc.

Just listen to the two guys.

Let me know what you think and we'll have a beer later.

Hey Hazz,

curious as to what you would file the Pascagoula case and also Portage county? I dont think either falls within the intial part of your sentence i.e. deception, ignorance etc and I also feel it fails to fall into the 'classic unidentified flying objects', although I guess I would need you to define the term 'classic UFO' to be confident with my comment about it failing to to fall in this domain.

cheers
