Subject: Report of the Fact Occurred on 19/05/86 (Monday)

I – On the night of May 19, 1986, I was ordered to immediate take off for identification of radar contacts visualized by THOR.

During the displacement, I was informed by the Air Defense, that approximately 5 contacts, were approaching my 12-hours at 20 MN. I inform you that the night was clear, cloudless and with a full moon. I did not obtain eye contact with the contacts who were 5 miles away at 12 o’clock, my 6 hours and 2 miles remained. THOR drove a 180 ‘turn on the right, when I was informed that the contacts were gone.

After 30 minutes of searching with a large number of contacts informed by THOR, I saw a red light towards the sea from São José dos Campos. I communicated to the Air Defense and the controller confirmed the contact. I was instructed to approach the light and try to get closer, which was done without success.

After reaching my minimum checking account, I abandoned the interception and started returning to the base.

With nothing more to declare. MBJ -Cap AV / Jambock 07
