APRIL 7th, 1997. Time: 18h30. Duration: 35 minutes. In the vicinity of Corumbá, State of Mato Grosso do Sul, from the cabin of his PTVOY aircraft, a commercial pilot and two other people observed three unidentified flying objects about 60NM [nautical miles] from the plane. The UFOs, according to the sighting report, flew at an altitude of approximately 5,000 ft, with the same speed as the witness plane, at about 160 kt [about 300 km/h]. The UFOs had circular shape and were large, with colors varying between orange, white and yellow, flashing like “strobe lights” in the “2 o’clock” position in relation to PTVOY. The visibility conditions were described as good by the pilot, who also reported that the UFOs moved in the Pantanal/Corumbá direction, West/Southeast, parallel to his aircraft.
