Brazilian Air Force will Document UFO Sightings


RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Brazil has ordered its air force to document any UFO sightings and make the data available to researchers and the public.

A decree in the official gazette says the air force will register any sightings by military and commercial pilots, along with air traffic controllers.

A spokesman says the air force has UFO archives dating back decades, but there had been no official order on what to do with the material. The spokesman could not be named under air force rules.

All past and future data — whether written reports, photos or video — will be processed by the air force and then housed in the National Archives in Rio de Janeiro.

In the decree published Tuesday, the air force says it will periodically submit UFO reports.


Brazil UFO Documents

The Brazil Air Force has ordered all UFO documented sightings from the past, present and future be made available to UFO researchers and the public right away.

The Brazilian Air Force (Portuguese: Força Aérea Brasileira, FAB) is the air branch of the Brazilian Armed Forces and one of the three national uniformed services.

The FAB was formed when the Army and Navy air branch were merged into a single military force initially called "National Air Forces".

Both air branches transferred their equipment, installations and personnel to the new force.

The FAB is the largest air force in South America, with about 700 manned aircraft in service, and 73,000 personnel on active duty.

An additional 7,655 civilian personnel are employed.
