NARCAP TR-15 International Air Safety Report   “The El Bosque Video Case: A
Preliminary Study of Anomalous Objects in Active Airspace.”
    

    
It was during an impressive airshow on November 5, 2010 above the Chilean El Bosque airbase near
Santiago that several videographers recorded the passage of ten separate formations of military airplanes.  
Later frame-by-frame analyses of these video images showed one (sometimes two) small round or oval
objects on a number of consecutive frames.  Details of how these unidentified objects (or at least optical
phenomena) were discovered were made public on March 13, 2012 by Air Force General (retired)
Ricardo Bermudez, Director of the official Chilean UAP study Comite de Estudios de Fenomenos Aereos
Anomalos (CEFAA).  Under terms of NARCAP’s collaborative agreement with CEFAA (insert CLICK
to related section of our website) we received all of the available video tapes with a request to examine
them to see what we could discover.  The possibility existed that these UAP might have posed a threat to
flight safety with so many high performance airplanes flying in the same vicinity. Chief Scientist, Richard
Haines has prepared a summary report of his findings entitled “The El Bosque Video Case: A Preliminary
Study of Anomalous Objects in Active Airspace.”  His report consists of more than sixty pages of
detailed text and over eighty figures (insert CLICK here for the paper).  Now that his report has been
sent to CEFAA for translation into Spanish and distribution to their staff and has also been approved as to
completeness and technical accuracy it is available for U. S. release.  Haines is quick to note that his
report is preliminary and subject to correction as further data is received concerning this controversial
case.
