Peru: Cylindrical UFO Caught On Video?

Fernando Avalos wasn't expecting to see a UFO on the 12th of

According to Peru.com, the unusual sight of a cylindrical object
moving at speed across blue skies was recorded at 17:45 hours
and was witnessed by sixty students between the ages of eleven
to twelve and four of their instructors in the city of Chimbote.
While the sighting went on for about three minutes, the recorded
segment only displays seventeen seconds =96 the amount of time
remaining on the videographer's memory card.

Naysayers have dismissed it as an airplane; believers say that
it goes to show that Peru's decades-old reputation as a UFO
haven remains unchallenged.

Spain: More Work For Air Traffic Controllers - UFO Control

Spain: More Work For Air Traffic Controllers =96 UFO Control

As if the waters weren't sufficiently turbulent for the air
traffic controllers union, a new mandate has been forced upon
them: to control air traffic that doesn't appear on the books.
At least that's what Cesar Cabo says. He is the former spokesman
and "friendly face" of USCA, reporting on his Twitter account:
"We kicked off the afternoon's supervisory duty like this =96
three airliners have reported a UFO on their radar screens!" The
remark may seem like the opening tag in a report by Iker
Jimenez, but sources consulted by El Confidencial confirm that
there was indeed an unidentified flying object, and three
captains from various airliners attest to the fact.

The event occurred at the first hour of the afternoon in the
airspace around Barajas Airport (Madrid). A strange report was
received from one of the passenger airliners nearby: "I'm
picking up a target on my screen" =96 in the jargon, a "target"
refers to an unknown element. The statement cannot be
corroborated from ground, as secondary radars did not pick up
anything strange. Shortly after, a third pilot reported another
"white light" on his monitors. Later, a third one makes a
similar report to the Barajas Control Center.

According to sources, the agitation that ensued in the control
room acquired considerable magnitude: an ambient mix of
surprise, confusion and disquiet. An effort was made for a
considerable amount of time to observe the element by following
the pilot's explanations to the letter, but without any effect.
The only conclusion reached at Barajas was that =96 whatever it
was =96 it wasn't a known aircraft.

It seems that such phenomena are not as unusual as one would
think. "Every so often, pilots pick up elements with "non-
ballistic acceleration" on their radars," explain airport

Practically no case receives a rational explanation. No one
dares put forth a logical hypothesis to yesterday's UFO episode.
Only one of the consulted experts was willing to put forth a
hypothesis to the events: "It may be that since tomorrow
(meaning today) is Hispanic Culture Day, it may have to do with
the Armed Forces and such...although to tell you the truth, it
isn't much of an explanation."
