Translation of FAB Pilots 1 and 2 reports.
FAB Pilot 2 Report:
“At 00:45P on the 17th of June 82, we were doing the Porto Alegre / Brasília flight with VS of 420 KT. We were passing the vertical of UBERLÂNDIA at level 370 and maintaining the radial 200 degrees of Brasília.
Flying as 2P, I observed on our left side, slightly higher, a ball of light that was approaching, I warned the 1P, we darkened the nacelle to observe better and the object that initially looked like one, [and] while passing besides us, it splited itself into 6 pieces.
We called the mechanic to come to the cabin and observe it.
We were able to observe the object (s) for approximately 01 minute.
Its trajectory was more or less parallel to ours and horizontally.
It disappeared from our vision just ahead of us slightly to the left of Brasilia.
The fact was observed as reported by three more aircraft that were flying at the same time coming to Brasilia. / Brasília-DF, June 1, 1982./C.P. Feijó – Cap AV.”
FAB Pilot 1 Report :
“At 00: 45 on 17th of June 82, during the journey from Porto Alegre to Brasília, we observed an UFO, whose phenomenon we now describe:
“Passing the vertical of Uberlândia at level 370, our HS-125 aircraft was at a speed of 420 Kt, radial 200° to Brasilia, approximately 170 miles away, when 2P suddenly called our attention to observe an object of great luminosity shifting.
The first sensation was of an aircraft on fire and then came the idea of a COMET, because the object had a huge incandescent tail and of great luminosity. There was enough time for us to darken the nacelle and call the mechanic so that the entire crew could observe.
The object was seen for the first time through the First Pilot’s DV window, at approximately high at 10-hours position, apparently FL 430. After being seen through the windshield, it began to fragment, dividing itself into six bright spots, which were fading, one by one.
The phenomenon lasted approximately 01 minute, its displacement was from southwest to northeast, more or less towards 030 degrees parallel to the horizon line.
The fact was observed by three more aircrafts flying at the same time, who informed the Brasília Center that they were observing this phenomenon and inquired about it, while the Brasília Center replied that nothing had been observed by the radars. VC Son / Cp AV.”
