UFOs in the daily Press:

UFO or "ghost plan" in Northeastern Argentina, 2005:

This article was published in the daily newspaper newspaper El Sol Matutino, (The Morning Sun), Argentina, for April 6, 2005,

On Wednesday, April 6, 2005, TV Canal 13 in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina conducted an interview with Capt. Alvaro Castillo of the Fuerza Aerea Uruguayense (FAU, Uruguayan Air Force) about the recent UFO sightings in Uruguay's southern coastal region. He spoke of "a missile or a downed combat aircraft" as being the cause.

Ghost aircraft crashes?

Meanwhile, UFOs were seen in Concordia. Volunteer firefighters in Villa Zorraquir, picked up a distress call on VHF radio from an aircraft identifying itself with three numerals. They immediately contacted the control tower at Comodoro Pierresteguy Airport, and the Fuerza Aerea Argentinera requested reports from all of the airports in the region. But no flight with Concordia as its destination was confirmed.

Residents of Salt, claimed to have seen "an airplane is distress" flying at a low altitude over their city.

A police detachment in Concordia in Entre Rios received reports of an alleged missile or aircraft in the vicinity of Termas Vertientes de la Concordia that was using a high-powered searchlight. Reports of the mysterious aircraft were received from that vicinity at 11:50 P.M. last night.

The Aviation Authority requested information from all airports in the province as to when an aircraft bound for Concordia could have been seen. This information was forwarded to the Third Aerial Brigade, headquartered at Parana. No plane had departed in the direction of Concordia. The three numerals of its call sign suggested that it could be an experimental plane.

A news crew from TV Canal 5 set out immediately for the thermal baths in that location, ascertaining that neither the employees of the baths nor the tourists visiting there had witnessed the crash of the alleged airplane.

Police officers, after combing the thermal baths and their vicinity, decided to return to their stations after alerting the Carabineros to be alert to the possible appearance of a "ghost aircraft" over the Rio Uruguay valley.
