UFOs OVER LA PAMPA
The time was approximately 18:00 hours on October 16, 2004 and Gustavo Jose Montiel and his family were heading to Santa Rosa along Circunvalacion Sur avenue from east to west. Upon merging with Ameghino Av, from north to south, he observed toward his left, some 45 degrees over the horizon and at an unspecified altitude and height, a "Flying Object"
Faced with this circumstance, he alerted his wife and told her the object was not an airplane. The witness is linked to the aeronautical world through his activities involving electronics and radars. He stopped the vehicle and upon getting out, he looked on in amazement as "two devices, clearly visible, dark in color, shaped like inverted soup plates, were suspended in the air, venting long streams of vapor or white smoke from their lower surfaces."
He immediately contacted the local airport control tower with his cellphone to ask whether "they had any aircraft in that sector". Tower personnel replied they did not, and that they could "not check that sector due to a lack of radar coverage." Finally, the witness remained along with other people, observing the phenomenon for several minutes, watching how the "long streams went up and down from those aerial vehicles."
At a given moment, one of the UFOs "cut the stream and initiated an escape toward the east and ver the city at a prodigious speed, vanishing in a matter of seconds."
The remaining object "remained static for a few seconds then began moving in a southwesterly heading, vanishing in an equally sudden manner."

ARGENTINA: ANOTHER UFO IN LA PAMPA (2004)
The time was approximately 1800 hours on October 16, 2004 and Gustavo José Montiel was heading along Santa Rosa's Circunvalación Sur Avenue, heading from east to west. Upon turning onto Ameghino Av., which runs from south to north, he noticed a "flying machine" to the left of his car some 45 degrees over the horizon.
Faced with this circumstance, Montiel alerted his wife, telling her that the object was not an airplane. The witness moves in aeronautical circles due to his work, which is connected to avionics and radar systems.
Montiel stopped his vehicle and got out. Both he and his wife observed in wonderment as "two devices, clearly visible, dark in color, shaped like inverted soup bowls, were suspended in mid-air, issuing long jets of steam or white smoke from their lower section toward the ground."
The witness immediately contacted the Airport's Control Tower with his airport, asking if "they had any aircraft in that sector". Tower personnel responded that they did not, and that "they could not check that radial due to a lack of radar coverage." Finally, Montiel and his wife remained alongside other witnesses who watched the phenomenon, seeing how the "long jets descended and rose from those aerial vehicles."
At one point, one of the UFOs "interrupted the jet of steam and initiated an escape toward the east, flying over the city, at an impressive rate of speed, vanishing in a matter of seconds." The remaining object, after remaining stationary for a few seconds "began to move toward the southwest, also vanishing suddenly."
