MAY 27th, 1986. Time: 23:36. Duration: not determined. An aircraft pilot flying from São Paulo-SP to Varginha-MG, the TF 402, having taken off at 22:07, reported having seen a “bright light, in its 9-hour position” about 33NM from the city of Bragança Paulista-SP. At that same time, according to a report, the “ACC-BS [Brasília-DF] was capturing a primary “plot” with a speed of 813 kt [1,540 km / h] and a course of 208 degrees in that position”. Another aircraft, the flight “VARIG RG256A [SBGR / SBCF – São Paulo-Guarulhos Airport to Belo Horizonte-Confins Airport – FL330, DEP 23:18]” reported sightings in the same region, even asking for permission to divert of the route to avoid collision with the UFO. Complementary data: “Transcript of occurrence posted in the Chief Controller’s assistant book: At 11:36 pm RG 256 (GR / CF) reported to ACC (F8) that it was being accompanied by lights on the BGC / BHZ (UR1) section. Such a situation it lasted until 11:49 pm, without obtaining radar contact with those objects.” The ACC-BS did not capture anything on the radar, nor did the APP-BH. At 00:20 TWR-BH (Sct MA) reported me that he saw green, red and white lights, approximately over Carlos Prates city (near Belo Horizonte-MG]. […] At 00:03, FAB 2177 (laboratory aircraft) took off from SBBH [Aeroporto da Pampulha-BH-MG] and, when questioned by APP-BH, reported seeing 2 balloons. RG 256A, after Confins took off for SBBR as RG256B, nothing reporting on that stretch.”
