Four UFOs force a plane to land

New part (and of importance) to pour in the UFO file: four unidentified flying objects in the Spanish sky have forced a "Caravelle" [French airliner] to land in Valence whereas its destination was Teneriffe.

Four unidentified flying objects have paced in the night of Sunday to Monday, during more than four hours, a "Caravelle" plane which flew from Palma de Mallorca to Teneriffe, forcing it to land in Valence, a police source stated Monday.

The plane, of the Transport Aereos Espanoles (TAE) company, had 119 passengers on his board, in majority German and Austrian.

According to a pilot, four luminous objects started to follow the aircraft whereas it flew over Ibiza at 10 p.m. local time Sunday. After having tried in vain to take distance, the commander consulted the control tower of the airport of Valence who advised him to land.

The four UFO followed the plane until Valence. It was then 2 o'clock. They then took position one above the military base of the city, another above the terminal, a third above the head of the landing strip, while the fourth flew over the military base.

Four "Phantoms" took off from the base of Los Llanos (province of Albacete). At the time when they arrived on Valence, the UFO disappeared.

They were seen by other witnesses in the area of Valence. The military authorities opened an investigation.
