APRIL 18, 2009. Time: 1:45 pm. Duration: 10 seconds. During a flight from the city of Curitiba, Paraná, to São Paulo, SP, a TAM pilot saw an unidentified flying object in the shape of a metallic triangle, about three meters wide and only 20 meters above of his aircraft. According to the witness, the UFO “flew with stability, defined bow” making “not so fast crossing”. He also stated that the object was flying in the same trajectory as the pilot’s flight, with a slightly lower speed than his plane’s, but both at an altitude of 37,000ft. Finally, the report by COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command] reports that “the pilot informed that the sighted object resembles an aerophotometry model.” The weather and visibility condition were described as being very good.
Below is a reproduction of the drawing made in the report with the shape of the UFO seen and reported by the witness.
