Dear Listers,

I am sorry to reportm that Roberto Affonso Beck died last night
of surgical complications. He was over 80 years old.

Roberto Affonso Beck was one of the last living Brazilian UFO
pioneers and left a book named Ufology Under The Light Of Facts.

He was a devoted field investigator who had experienced several
close encounters, especially with devices, a phenomena so common
in Brazil. He was one of the first inhabitants of Brasilia, the
Federal Capital. During its construction, in the 50s and 60s
Beck decided to explore the city's surroundings and found that
the area had enormous UFO activity - even to this day. He was a
partner of General Alfredo Moacyr Uchoa in many field
investigations and successful contact attempts.

Roberto Affonso Beck was a distinguished contributor to the
Brazilian UFO Magazine and member of the Brazilian Committee of
UFO Researchers (CBU), the group that demanded the Government
to open its military secret files on UFOs, successfully. He was
one of the UFO researchers present at the historical meeting
with the military at the Brazilian Airspace Defense Command, in
May 2005.
