Argentina: La Plata Experts Join Air Force Team

Two of the five civilians summoned to form part of the Comisi=F3n
de Estudio de Fen=F3menos Aeroespaciales are from our city.

In January 1976, when he was fifteen years old, Carlos Ferguson
was on his way back from playing soccer with some friends when
he saw something in the Saavedra district that would mark his
destiny. What he claims having seen is the same thing that =93over
a dozen local residents and drivers=94 reported: a disk-shaped
metallic object measuring three meters in diameter, flying over
the terrace of a home in broad daylight and at a stone=92s throw
away.=94 Since then, Carlos =96 founder of the Red Argentina de
Ovnilog=EDa =96 has spent his life trying to understand what he saw
that afternoon, and life has just given him an opportunity that
he did not even dream of.

Carlos Ferguson, who lives in La Plata and works for the
logistics office of the Dept. of Education, is one of the five
civilians summoned by the Argentinean Air Force to constitute
the Comisi=F3n de Estudio de Fen=F3menos Aeroespaciales (CIFA).
Created on May 26, this agency represents the formalization of a
phenomenon which, while raising questions, has been formally
investigated by many other countries: France, Russia, the UK,
U.S.A, Brasil and Uruguay among others.

But Ferguson isn=92t the only resident of La Plata asked to form
part, ad honorem, of the new commission. Accompanying him is
Carlos Iurchuk, a 41-year-old systems analyst  who has spent
fifteen years researching the UFO phenomenon. Both form part of
a team that includes pilots, weathermen, radar techs and
satellite positioning techs and other experts under the command
of Capt. Mariano Mohaupt.

Far from attempting to prove the existence of extraterrestrial
life, his mission is aimed at  =93scientific investigation of
reports that involve the domestic airspace, and which have
increased over recent years.=94 As the Argentinean Air Force
indicates: =93the number of persons claiming to have seen UFOs is
far greater than anyone would imagine.=94
