BUENOS AIRES — The Argentine Air Force has created a commission to record and investigate reports of unidentified flying objects (UFO) in the South American country’s airspace, a spokesman told AFP Wednesday.
The Commission for the Investigation of Airspace Phenomenon “is in the process of being formed,” said Captain Mariano Mohaupt.
Officials said the air force already holds records of reported UFO sighting, but the interdisciplinary commission — involving meteorologists, air traffic controllers and civilian pilots alongside military authorities — would formalize the data keeping.
Other South American countries including neighboring Brazil and Uruguay and have previously moved to record alleged UFO sightings.
Argentine authorities urged military and civilian pilots as well as air traffic controllers to report their experiences and, if possible, to send any documenting evidence.
