“MISTERIO NO CEU DE PELOTAS”
(Mystery in the Sky in Pelotas) -
The Haroldo Westendorff UFO Case,
Pelotas, Brazil, 5 October 1996, 10:15 a.m.
Businessman Haroldo Westendorff encountered a very large
UFO while he flew his Tupi airplane over Saragonha Island on
5 October 1996, at 10:15 a.m.
Westendorff contacted Infraero, a Brazilian Government corporation, during the flight to ask if the UFO could be sighted. An Infraero official reported back to Westendorff that he and two other officials saw a triangular shaped UFO with rounded edges.
The pilot also reported that the large unknown object ejected a smaller UFO, which flew away at an unbelievable speed.
The Brazilian Aeronautic Ministry (Ministerio da Aeronautica) conducted a secret investigation into the case, according to the Wikipedia article.
This is a very interesting UFO case because of the detailed observation of the UFO by the pilot, the number of witnesses who corroborated the sighting and the Brazilian Government’s investigation into the case:
