On May 10th, 1965, the Convair-340 plane, registration PP-YBJ, took off from São Paulo-SP, at 19:33 bound for Londrina-PR, piloted by Commander Orlando Ferreira Costa – Co-pilot B. Brigandeni Filho and Radio Operator José Carneiro Lavor. The crew reported being followed, from Itapetininga-SP to Londrina-PR, by a luminous object that constantly changed course. It flew first on the right, then on the left of the aircraft, even crossing its bow. As they approached Londrina Airport, Commander Orlando, calling the Control Tower, asked the service operator, 2 Sgt Jaime Correia, to observe the area and report if he found any abnormalities. The operator immediately drew the Commander’s attention to the luminous object moving around the airport, declaring that it was not an airplane.
