Above the Balearic Islands

A caravel pursued by four UFOs!...

It had to land in Valencia

Valencia. -- Four unidentified flying objects pursued, during the night of Sunday to Monday, for more than four hours, a Caravelle plane which was flying from Palma de Mallorca to Tenerife, forcing it to land in Valencia.

The plane, from the Transportes Aereos Espanoles (TAE) company, had 119 passengers on board, mostly Germans and Austrians.

According to its pilot, four luminous objects began following the aircraft as it flew over Ibiza at 10 p.m. local time on Sunday. After unsuccessfully trying to get some distance, the captain consulted the Valencia airport control tower who advised him to land.

The four UFOs followed the plane to Valencia. It was then 2 o'clock. They then took up position, one above the military base in the city, another above the terminal, a third above the runway head, while the fourth flew over the military base.

Four Phantom took off from the base of Los Llanos (Province of Albacete). As they arrived in Valence, the U.F.Os disappeared.

They were seen by other witnesses in the Valencia region. Military authorities have opened an investigation.
