Go Back Report # 253


       In the course of August 1962, there were many press reports of sightings at Concepción de las Sierras, San Javier, and various other localities in Misiones Province (a wedge of Argentine territory running up between Paraguay and Brazil). On one particular evening, people in seven of these towns reported a squadron of five UFOs flying northwards towards Brazil. The objects were silvery-grey and showed vivid red lights. They were elongated, surmounted by round cupolas.

       In an interview with journalists which appeared in various papers in August 1962, Señor Vicente A. Bordoli, a truck-driver living at Mar del Plata, stated that when driving southwards along National Highway No. 3, which skirts the South Atlantic coast of Argentina, he and his son Hugo Bordoli had frequently seen strange, luminous craft both entering and leaving the sea. In his view these craft, veritable flotillas of them, are controlled by signals emanating from underwater bases, perhaps from large submarine mother-craft. Señor Bordoli concluded his statement by saying: "It is absolutely certain that in the depths of the Gulf of San Matías there is a flying saucer base. These happenings are common knowledge throughout a region of Patagonia, where it is a regular and quite a normal thing for people to be heard speaking of the Martians."
