I – Transcription of the Operational Occurrence book of the Chief Controlling Assistant:
“At 23:39Z the JBAZ carrying out an interception mission, 44FI09 position 70 NM on the radial 360 VOR AN, reported contact with an object and asked if it was a “ghost”.
“THOR” had no radar contact with the reported object. Both aircrafts had visual contact and then on-board radar contact. They reported having contact at about 08 NM. “THOR” was asked to approve the object. The authorization was granted and the chase started with acceleration up to 1.2 of Mach. There was a small approach, and then the object was moving away increasing the speed and left the limit of the onboard radar.
The chase was canceled and the mission proceeded normally.
During the pursuit the pilots noted the change of the object’s color, varying from green to white and red.
In the last presentation, already with a return bow, JBAZ reported that he was being accompanied by the object.
Video recording was provided, but without any contact with the object, informed. (23:39Z to 23:59Z).
When “debriefing”, the pilot commented that on the descent he accelerated to 1.2 Mach and noticed a great speed of the object, as it changed from 08 to 20 NM in about 5 seconds. Telephone contact – TF3 CSL B FQ – Channel 19.
