PUERTO MALDONADO 1952:
At 04:30 P.M. on July 19, 1952, the attention of Customs Inspector Sr. Domingo Troncoso, then with the Peruvian Customs Office at Puerto Maldonado on the jungle frontier with Bolivia, was called to a very strange cigar-shaped flying object over the river area. The big dirigible-shaped craft was flying horizontally and fairly low in the sky, passing from right to left from the observers position. It was leaving a dense trail of thick smoke, vapor, or substance on its wake. This object was a real, structured, physical machine and may be seen from its reflection in the waters of the Madre de Dios river underneath it. The object was estimated to be over a hundred feet long.
In 1968 Senor Augusto Arranda was trekking in Yungay, and took four pictures that ultimately made their way to the ufology group APRO.
On December 6, 1968 Senor Pedro Chavez, a photographer for La Prensa, on assignment in Sicuani, Peru, was in the cathedral square near the big church where he took this picture before they disapeared.
This is the only surviving photo of the funnel-shaped flying object that paced the Fawcett Airlines DC-4 passenger liner in flight from Piura to Lima on February 2, 1967, at 06:30 P.M. The passengers were all held for interrogation by authorities after the plane landed. Several of the passengers had taken photos of the strange craft alongside the airliner, but all cameras were taken and all film was confiscated. One passenger, who insisted on remaining anonymous, succeeded in saving his film from which this single photograph was made.

our correspondent in Udine. A photo showing a golden object hovering above Inca ruins of Pisaq
in Per¨. The photo was shooted by Silvia Z., the girlfriend of our correspondent during a vacation
in Per¨ in the summer 1998. The date of event was 16 August. The object is there in the negative
film too. The analysis of a photo laboratory have excluded fault on the film and in the developing
process. Computer analysis are on going in this moment by our computer expert. If the photo is
true I think that the object could be a light craft or Apu (like the Incas call them spirits).
