The pilot of an F5M fighter jet reported the detection of an unidentified flying object through the radar of his aircraft in the vicinity of the Anápolis Air Base, State of Goiás. According to the pilot, the UFO was heading North at an altitude of 38.000ft, and moving at a supersonic speed of 1.6 Ma [Mach] in front of the F5M at a distance of 20 NM [nautical miles]. Also according to the report by COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command]: “The F5M pilot reported that he obtained radar contact with the UFO that was approximately on the FL380 in a 180° presentation (face to face). The F5M pilot interpreted that it was the Mirage alert from the Anápolis Air Base, however, after realizing the distance from the base, he disregarded it and the contact had already been lost. He informed that the number 3 of the Smoke Squadron also had contact on the F5M radar, but it was not possible to make the recording. “
