Article dedicated to ufologists, former ufologists and participants in the dissemination who do not delve into the casuistry or take the trouble to review it… and believe that the topic is «out of stock»
There are countless cases of UFO close-ups and near-collisions with conventional aircraft. This is perfectly documented in countless cases worldwide.
Professor Oscar Uriondo already exemplified this situation for us as one of the intentional components of the UFO phenomenon.
Precisely at this time we are also experiencing another situation, with the presence of artifacts of Chinese origin in various places and the demolition of some of them. I will refer to this below. And although we are not linking it to the UFO issue, it is good to add that information, since it confirms the issue of air insecurity with other trimmings.
The cases of near collisions with UFOs have nothing to do with the issue of balloons…
Near collisions represent 5 to 10% of all UFO cases, and show the coldness and temper of civil, commercial and military pilots, who are faced with an unforeseen situation: the direct approach towards the plane, for part of a UFO.
As for the UFO effects on planes in flight, they are around 20 to 25% of the total cases (in the Argentine Catalog of Pilot cases that I have made, the figure rises to 27%).
The notable Argentine analyst and colleague Lic. Ángel Díaz well points out:
«We must note that in a few cases there have been temporary alterations to the instruments, communications, etc., which can lead to a situation of risk.» (QUOTE 1)
Dr.Richard Haines (CITA 2), a world eminence in the field of astronautics and aviation, has spoken to us on countless occasions on the subject of air safety and Ufos.
Even though many insist on affirming that there are no witnesses more prepared for observation, pilots have a category that places them in privileged observers with respect to the rest.
In my work «Air Safety related to the Reports of Argentine Pilots before Unidentified Aerial Phenomena» (published in Spanish and English – QUOTE 3), I refer to some Argentine cases.
Here I briefly reproduce two national events.
THE IMPRESSIVE NEAR-MISS OF COMMANDER LONGO
On November 21, 1965, Commander Domingo Longo and co-pilot Jorge Bassi were flying an “Aerolíneas Argentinas” flight in a Caravelle, ready to land at the Resistencia Airport (Chaco).
Being 10 kilometers away, Longo began to observe a luminous object that – at first – he thought could be another aircraft.
The problem arose because the strange light apparatus did not seem to stop and was on a complete collision course with the Caravelle.
The situation reached such a point that the UFO came to be only 100 meters in front of the plane. There, Commander Longo yelled at his companion «Watch (beware) that it hits us» !!.
Basi – reacting immediately – turned 30 degrees, heading 300, at an altitude of 2,100 meters. At the same time, the UFO ascended at a fantastic speed.
Upon descending, the operator of the control tower confirmed the observation and tremendous disappearance of the luminous object, as well as the mechanic of the machine.
Basi made strong statements:
«I have been flying since I was 18 years old, what we saw was something amazing, it came 100 meters closer to us and for a moment I thought it was going to crash into our aircraft» (end of quote)
NEAR UFO COLLISION WITH PLANE
In the midst of a wave of cases in 1968, on June 18, Mr. Jorge Scassa Suter (with 25 years of flight experience), was taxiing in a Cessna 182 LV-ITR light aircraft from Villa Dolores to the province of Catamarca. He was accompanied by Mr. Rubén Andrawos (from the Arcor firm). They ascended to a height of more than 2,200 meters, on a clear-sky day. Everything went normally until 4:25 p.m., when they were at the height of the city of La Guardia (Catamarca).
Suddenly, in the upper right, they saw an unidentified flying object (it was literally a metal saucer with a dome) coming towards the Cessna. It was 1,000 meters away and at the same height, and they calculated its diameter to be 30 meters.
Scassa Suter tried to contact Córdoba Aero Control, but they did not respond, so he proceeded to call the Catamarca Airport Control Tower. Since the signals were almost inaudible, he only managed to place an air call to any plane or station that could pick him up.
The response came from the crew of an «Aerolíneas Argentinas» plane (flight 713), which had taken off from Córdoba bound for Resistencia (Chaco).
Suter was asked if an emergency had been declared or if the object threatened his safety, to which our pilot replied that they should stay on the same frequency.
The UFO followed its path unperturbed and stood in front of the nose of the aircraft, following the trajectory for a few seconds.
The moments of tension of both crew members were tremendous.
Suddenly, the UFO began to accelerate at a fantastic speed, heading north. Its acceleration was such that in seconds it was out of sight.
They had not recovered from this surprise, when they saw a black dot coming from the horizon, which, as it approached, revealed again the discoidal shape and the bluish-grey color of its metallic surface.
The strange device pounced on the plane, stopping a few meters from it and beginning to wobble for a few seconds, to move away again like the previous time, and this time, definitely.
Suter and Andrawos then landed at the Catamarca airport, where the operator of the Tower, the Director of Provincial Aeronautics and two other people were waiting for them. They discussed everything that had happened and their surprise was great when the next day an article appeared on the front page of the local newspaper detailing all the details they had narrated.
Other witnesses to the event were a driver and 3 passengers in a car traveling from Recreo to Chumbicha.
This case clearly shows us the control of the UFO phenomenon of a sequence that we can define in 6 instances:
short follow up
These two examples clearly demonstrate the impressive characteristics of near misses and UFO effects in flight.
UFO EFFECTS AND AIR SAFETY
As Carl Jung rightly points out in his “Flying Saucers; a modern myth of things seen in the skies”, UFOs have special characteristics. He said:
«Their flights do not appear to be based on any recognizable system. They behave more like a group of tourists unsystematically observing the landscape, stopping now here for a while, now there, erratically following first one interest and then another, at sometimes shooting themselves at enormous altitudes for inexplicable reasons, or performing acrobatic evolutions right under the noses of exasperated pilots. (end of quote)
By the way, “explanations” arose from deniers who tried to limit the issue of aerospace UFOs to plasmas.
For example, Persinger and Philip Klass himself attributed these electrical and pressure effects to intense magnetic fields generated by the pressure of the movements of the tectonic plates, which would produce luminous balls of plasma of short duration (15 to 20 seconds).
Dr. Haines well points out that none of them has been able to explain how such a phenomenon can travel to high layers of the atmosphere and how that plasma can be sustained for an extended period of time.
Once again – as in so many other cases about UFOs – one thing is possible, and another is probable.
By the way, there are people with little or no information (without reviewing the literature), who – perched in some official office – believe they know more than others who have dedicated years to the issue, and point out inaccuracies and erroneous judgments.
The head of Argentina’s CIAE (aerospace «identification» center), is one of them. In some journalistic statement he has stated:
«There is not a single country in the world that has officially stated that these phenomena constitute a risk to the safety of air operations» (end of quote).
It is clear that the lack of information leads him to commit such slips, and it seems that his new advisers (without a specialization degree in images) do not illustrate it too much either.
Expanded budgets and more resources are useless, if from the start, the position is NOT TO INVESTIGATE and give brief reviews of a few cases from a seat. We are facing data that could well fit into the study of an official office in charge of aerospace, but to address the issue there can be no deep-rooted beliefs or dogmas and criteria and objectivity must prevail.
In contrast to such a DISCURSIVE fallacy of the CIAE, we have two clear examples of countries that have indicated the opposite, and that – anyone really interested in the subject – should already have read.
The «Comet» (FRANCE) was carried out by an infinity of scientific, technical and military personalities of that country. And it makes a clear allusion to the issue of air safety in its section on pilot cases.
There he mentions that:
“The number of testimonies and the quality of the witnesses make it impossible to avoid the phenomenon, which is why aeronautical personnel, and more especially that of the defense, must be sensitized and prepared to face these situations.
If we did nothing, the very principle of air defense and information would again be called into question.
The first observations made by aviators date back to the early 1940s. Since then, the number of unexplained observations reported by pilots or controllers has risen to more than 500.
Who is involved? Air personnel: more specifically pilots, since, being civilian or military, they occupy a privileged place to observe and would be the first to be affected in the event of an incident (particularly risk of collision). That is especially true for the fighter pilot, because he is involved in relentless monitoring of the sky and has increasingly powerful weapon systems, capable of detecting small targets ever faster and at ever greater distances.
The pilot/weapon system combination is more than ever an excellent observation tool, and would be our first means of intervention, should the need arise. The concerns of the regular airline pilot are different, since, in addition to not having the same equipment, his priority is obviously the safety of his passengers; and although he remains a privileged ally in the search for information, he would be completely helpless in the face of an aggressive attitude from a UFO.» (end of quote)
As noted, the Comet does not evade the issue of collision risk. But it goes further, and warns about the need for awareness:
“In order for the aeronautical personnel to get involved, it is necessary to know how to interest them in the subject and for that the best thing is to inform them about the phenomenon, specify what they expect, define the reflex actions to have and the attitude that they must observe. It is necessary to overcome the fear of ridicule and involve all generations.
If you want staff to get involved, they need to know how to react instantly, communicate what and to whom, take appropriate action depending on the current situation, etc. It is in this objective that it is convenient to define with him the actions that must be applied and the attitude that must be adopted”. (end of quote)
El Cometa also mentions the event of Commander Polanco (July 31, 1995 – Argentina) as an example of expertise in an unexpected situation, as follows:
“It is necessary to instill in the personnel, when faced with the phenomenon, the reflex actions that they must have, knowing that they may not be more than a simple observer or, in some cases, have to adopt concrete measures (example of San Carlos de Bariloche: sudden shutdown of the runway lights in the middle of the UFO phenomenon). It is quite true that in order to remain master of the situation in the face of an unforeseen and poorly known event, it is best to be prepared. These reflex acts are of different types depending on whether it is about observing, recording a testimony, transmitting the information collected or reacting instantly to adopt the appropriate measures before the phenomenon. (“Reflex Acts” – Comet Report)
RECENT PENTAGON FINDINGS
But without a doubt, recent information from the Pentagon (the headquarters of the Department of Defense of the world’s greatest power) is forceful regarding the issue of air safety and UFOs.
There we were able to find out about the tense situation experienced by naval pilots in the face of the UFO proximity (including some of them stating that it is a matter of time to have a serious problem in flight due to this situation).
The Pentagon has spread that its events bring together 510 reports, many of which are of objects flying over «sensitive military spaces.»
Without referring to the question of origin, as expected, the Pentagon fully ratifies the existence of UFOs and goes further to point out that «it has no explanation for the numerous observations.» By the way, this is a tacit recognition of the witnesses of all times and places who have denounced having seen a UFO.
The report also notes that in some cases there are «unusual flight characteristics or performance capabilities.»
And here the most important and compelling:
“Events continue to occur in restricted or sensitive airspace, raising potential concerns about flight safety or information-gathering activity by adversaries” (Office of the Director of National Intelligence).
Finally, that office added that, by publishing reports of objects that may pose a threat, it caused «additional reports» to emerge.
In short: we are facing very clear statements regarding air safety and UFOs, and it is impossible and unjustifiable not to be aware of this information, even without being interested in Ufology.
NEED FOR AWARENESS
The «Comet» directly, and the Pentagon peripherally, are pointing out a key fact, which should be a priority.
It is necessary to teach the air personnel about the reality of certain situations that arise in the airspace.
Not surprisingly, the French report states:
“Faced with an unknown situation, it is necessary to avoid any instinctive self-defense reaction that could easily be interpreted as a provocation. Once a phenomenon has been verified, it is convenient to report it in order to alert, on the one hand, the other crews, which is generally practiced, and on the other, the authorities through the operational chain of air control, for civil traffic, and air defense, for the military”.
It is totally unjustifiable that any official aerospace body does not take this information into account, or disparages it, imagining that we are talking about «Martians» or «aliens», and not doing anything about it.
1 – The reality of air insecurity cases is unquestionable, through time and at all latitudes (see list of cases below).
2 – It is noted that the phenomenon seems to have (in many cases), full control of the situation. In others, it is the pilots themselves and their expertise that prevent a possible collision.
3 – The characteristics observed and detected by pilots and air traffic controllers on these UFOs show them with anomalous characteristics in many cases, in the ranges: speed – maneuverability – evasiveness – effects – appearance, etc.
4 – These follow-up events, near misses and various effects represent a challenge for every analyst and research body. The Pentagon itself (in statements by spokespersons) has confirmed its concern over various events, warning of any problematic situation in the future.
5 – The statements of the head of the CIAE (aerospace “identification” center) of Argentina, affirming before the press that: “There is not a single country in the world that has officially affirmed that these phenomena constitute a risk to the security of the air operations” (end of quote), is the product of a complete ignorance of international and Argentine material on the matter and of a biased “advice”. No minimally informed person could sustain such a «sentence», unless they are not aware of what is happening. It is not the first time that a handful of colleagues have been pointing out and denouncing this, in the face of the passivity and silence of a large majority of complicit disseminators. Not investigating UFOs does not exempt someone who claims to be a student of aerospace phenomena, from being “up to date” on recent information, and from examining all the existing literature on hundreds of cases with these characteristics. UFO claims cannot be excluded from aerospace just by dogma.
6 – The aforementioned situation shows a regrettable vacuum of awareness in Argentina. From the moment that «explanation of all cases» is insinuated (contrary to everything that happens at the international level), we are faced with a remarkable inconsistency. As the French Comet Report points out: «If we did nothing, the very principle of defense and air information would once again be questioned.» This is precisely what happens in Argentina and its official entity from 2016 onwards. An area without answers, riddled with prejudice and misinformation.
7 – A PROTOCOL for pilots and airmen in general is fundamental and a priority, which contemplates all these possibilities. We have a basic Protocol but today there is no possibility that it will be officially taken into account in Argentina, so we will work on it with entities from other countries. Not doing so implies an irresponsibility that no authority can assume, unless their actions and thoughts date back to the 50s.
BUSY DAYS…THE CHINESE BALLOONS AND OTHERS…
And as if this were not enough, at the time of finishing this article, we found out about the issue of Chinese balloons and demolition.
On February 2, 2023, the North American Defense Department detected the presence of an observation balloon-type object of unknown origin. In a short time it was possible to discover its origin: China. Its trajectory was followed by the Montana Territory, and on February 4 it was shot down. The Pentagon decided to shoot it down once it was out of drop range on the town.
On February 3, the United States reported that a second surveillance balloon was flying over Latin America. This was confirmed from two countries: Colombia and Costa Rica.
In turn, voices of detractors had already arisen, asking how they could know that they were Chinese. The answer was given by the Chinese government itself: a spokesperson for that country acknowledged «The balloon is ours» and pointed out that it is not a question of espionage but of a civil airship used for research for meteorological purposes. He further stated that «it went a long way due to the winds». The problem with this statement is that then more objects began to be seen elsewhere. The remains of the balloon were recovered by US forces in the South Carolina area.
On Friday the 10th, a second object was shot down over Deadhorse (Alaska).
On Saturday the 11th, a third object was shot down over Canadian territory (Yukon). Canadian Defense Minister Anita Anand indicated that the device was flying over the northwest of the country at an altitude of 12,000 meters, posing a threat to civil aviation. It was finally shot down by the United States Air Force, which was operating together with Canadian CF-18s under the orders of NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command).
Finally, on Sunday the 12th, the United States Army shot down another flying body over Lake Huron.
It is important to clarify that the characteristics of these last cases differ in the description of a balloon. There is talk of cylindrical bodies the size of a car (we are in the process of investigating a similar event in Argentina in 2022).
Be that as it may, these incidents are in addition to those of UFOs that exist worldwide. Therefore, who from the official speculates that there are no issues of air insecurity, can only be admitted in an uninformed or negligent.
It is essential to inform and disseminate what is confirmed by world-class entities, about the reality not only of the UFO phenomenon as such, but also in terms of the derivations of air safety.
Unfortunately in Argentina, that responsibility falls to the few ACTIVE ufologists (we do not exceed 7).
The CIAE official personnel office will never undertake a change with the current approach, when from a seat only some selective information is «analyzed», and without review of literature or full investigation.
A part of the disseminators are comfortable with their silence of not playing with anything, except to attack the ufologists themselves who move the fret of the seat to point out things. For them it is much easier to talk about Condon, the concealment of the US and other herbs, but to silence what happens in their own home, in a proof of cowardice and forceful passivity.
Disinformation is an ally of both (the official bureaucracy and the opportunism of a part of the disseminators).
It is the responsibility of every researcher to offer an alternative to such a situation.
Our next challenge is to be attentive to high-level global entities, which little by little will continue to provide information on facts that for more than 70 years have never been as accepted as they are now.
ANNEX: SAMPLE OF EXAMPLE CASES
A review of 145 events (there are countless cases and it is impossible to cite them all), appear as an Annex below. They are very synthesized so as not to tire the reader, but each one of them has more information and data that is on file.
This material is part of one of my books, «ENCOUNTERS BETWEEN PILOTS AND UFOs», and although the subject of air safety also concerns approaches and/or monitoring of UFOs on planes, I have only included here the cases of near misses and/or or damages to the instruments coincidentally with the observation of a UFO.
But beyond this book, there are countless others and sources available, so that everyone interested (and also the uninformed on duty), can begin to see about these cases. In a globalized world of information, there are no excuses for not doing it, unless you don’t want to.
From the list of cases that appear at the end of the note, we can extract this synthesis:
86 near miss events
22 radar captures
16 cases of UFOs avoiding the collision
21 cases of expertise of pilots to avoid the collision
12 cases of fear / terror / panic of the crews
2 cases of teleportation
6 cases of death or disappearance
3 cases of hospitalized witnesses
4 cases of injuries
3 cases of heat wave in the airplane cabin
2 cases of burning smell in the airplane cabin
Of the near collisions, it is interesting to notice in 12 cases, the distances that separated the UFO from the conventional terrestrial object, namely:
at 1 meter = 2 cases
at 6 meters = 1 case
at 10 meters = 2 cases
at 15 meters = 2 cases
at 20 meters = 1 case
at 91 meters = 1 case
at 100 meters = 2 cases
at 150 meters = 1 case
And 67 cases of cases with EFFECTS, namely:
All the electrical part of the airplane controls was destroyed
Disruption in the radial system.
Three bars in the cockpit were completely altered.
Smell of burnt cable
Aircraft engine revs began to increase
The normal and electric compasses went completely crazy.
All power to one base was cut (including the emergency generator set).
Effects on radio and radar, on aircraft engine power, and turboprops.

Radio compass had an oscillation that went from 0.05 degrees to 270 degrees and the horizontal indicator was also showing problems
Light beam generates pilot effect
Unusual anomalies in your instruments
They jammed the defense systems of the F-16s
All electrical systems began to fail
Problems in the control tower instruments.
Extreme magnetic variations in gyroscope and magnetic compass
Radial interference and momentary effect on motor
Static effect on the pilot’s head.
The automatic direction finder and gyro and magnetic compasses went haywire and spun wildly. All the management team did not work.
electrical failure at airport
Aircraft enters two quick 360° turns, dropping 500 feet – Magnetic compass rotated clockwise – Radar pickup from ground.
Heat wave inside the plane and effect on the radio beacon.
Technical failures that prevented launching the missiles
Airport suffered blackout
Momentary interference in aircraft radar visors
Strong effects on autopilot and all three compasses.
Oscillation in your compass radio and reduced cabin lights – Static noise.
Radar on the plane did not work
One of the transponders stopped working.
Magnetic compass on the panel rotated counterclockwise at a rate of four revolutions per minute.
The magnetic compass and automatic direction finder began to rotate. The radio intercept was jammed by static and the engine started to run rough. Captured on ground radar.
The Distance Measurement Equipment and the navigation and communications radios are turned off.
Effects on airplane radio compass.
The altimeter «went crazy.»
Plane loses power temporarily. The engine sputtered and all electrical equipment, including computers, went out.
The radar was jammed for a brief period of time.
It should be noted that the effects in flight are simultaneous to the appearance of the UFO(s) and that these effects culminate moments after their departure. There are no coincidences in this.
After reading these changes, it is very clear that air personnel must be aware and prepared for situations like the ones mentioned above, and only someone uninformed could argue that there are no air insecurity events to review.
In the list that readers will find below, we warn that UFO effects and near-collisions in airspace have been occurring for decades, in all types of crew and different aircraft and conventional media. That is to say: all countries and people of all socio-cultural conditions have had these episodes.
