Comment by the video source (machine translation):

“Tenth episode broadcast on June 15, 2008 dedicated to the UFO phenomenology in Portugal. On the morning of November 2, 1982 Julio Guerra, Portuguese Air Force pilot, participated in a flying exercise over the Serra do Montejunto mountain range. It was there he observed an object that aroused his curiosity. When he tried to approach the object, it skyrocketed to his altitude, and he realised that it was a discoid object with two hemispheres, metallic coloured and reddish on the bottom. After radio contact, another plane approached. Two other pilots, Carlos Garces and Antonio Gomes, also witnessed this strange event.”
