ARGENTINA: AIRCRAFT ACCOMPANIED BY UFO
During the last week of July 2005, the time being approximately 19:30 h, the presence of an unidentified flying object was reported toward the south of Santa Rosa, La Pampa, just as a commercial airliner was making its final approach to the local airport's runway.
The Airport Control Tower Operator was observing the approach trajectgory of a commercial flight from Buenos Aires when he detected the presence of a luminous object moving slowly and parallel to the aircraft, from east to west.
Faced with this circumstance, the tower operator requested a confirmation of the unknown object's presence from the Flight Plan Operator, located in the lower level of the control tower building. Both men could visualize the airliner entering its final approach from a south to north direction while the luminous object halted its movement, issued a bright flash of intense blue-white light, re-started its movement, stopped again to emit another flash, and subsequently vanished before its departure trajectory could be detected.
This UFO was seen on radial 140 and some 20 degrees over the horizon, vanishing toward radial 180, and at no point ever being detected by the airliner's crew.
