Report by J.F.S. – Head of NPV SBBH [Belo Horizonte Airport Flight Protection Nucleus]
“At 21:01:25Z, the pilot of plane PP-VJO reported Cleusa FL 190 VMC NOT position, and shortly after he asked TWR-BH if we were observing unidentified objects moving in the East sector of Belo Horizonte, as he was seeing them in a different way. We immediately observed [the sector] through the binoculars and we could see a streak of whitish light disappearing towards Nova Lima. We asked PP-VJO if the object was disappearing and this confirmed it. At this moment, SC 107 called BH and reported Curió position 01.16Z FL 330 and informing that he also saw the luminous objects, right after I called TWR and the S1 V. of the Fire Dept that said he was on duty at the station and saw the objects. TWR called us claiming to have seen the objects from his car on the road, perfectly, the amateur radio user P.C. prefix PX4A-0057, called saying that he had seen the objects. Just after ACC BR reported that VASP 234 making the route Goiânia-Brasília had spotted the objects inside the TMA de BR and asking the TWR BR colleague to report the phenomenon in his LRO (for future reference).
We also inform that hundreds of people spotted this UFO here in Belo Horizonte and I send narratives of two people that coincide with the general one.
According to 1S Q AT TG E. A. R., it had the appearance of a squadron of jet planes and it was as if everyone had their headlights on, illuminating each other, forming a reasonable area. At the rear, this clarity diminished, until it ended in a luminous filament. It was possible to distinguish fixed points of light, maintaining distances between them.
2S Q AT CV D.L.P. he also spotted the objects outside the city on a highway. He stopped the car to get a better look at them. He said it looked like a shoal of fish, keeping constant distances between them, all with a luminous trail. They moved with great speed, taking about thirty seconds in their trajectory, with an altitude of approximately 10 to 15 meters, without any noise, in a northwest to southeast direction. /J.F.S. – Head of NPV SBBH / “
