Peruvian Air Force to re-open UFO investigation department

Peruvian Air Force LogoThe Peruvian Air Force (FAP) has announced that it will re-activate their dormant UFO investigation department, known officially as the Office of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena Research (OIFAA).

The official announcement and re-launch ceremony will take place at an upcoming event held by the Peruvian Air Force’s Directorate of Aerospace Interests (DINAE). The event is being advertised as a meeting on anomalous aerial phenomena, and will feature a discussion on the Nazca lines and extraterrestrials. It is being held October 18, 2013 at the DINAE offices in Lima, Peru.

According to South American news website AIM, FAP Colonel Julio José Vucetich Abanto, director of DINAE, has been calling members of the press along with senior officials in the Peruvian Navy, Army, and national police, inviting them to attend the re-launch ceremony.

OIFAA was originally opened in 2001, but it went dormant around 2005. OIFAA’s founder, retired FAP Commander Julio Chamorro Flores, occasionally re-activated the department to investigate high profile UFO sightings. Flores will continue to head the department.

Andrea Perez, director of the Commission for the Study of the Phenomenon UFO in Argentina (CEFORA), told AIM that she speculated OIFAA was being re-activated to keep up with Argentina, Chile, and Ecuador, who have similar UFO departments. Although, she also says it could be due to recent UFO events, such as a popular sighting in La Molina and a recent sighting by officials in the jungle.

UFO researcher Scott Corrales posted information he had received from Peruvian colleges at his website Inexplicata: The Journal of Hispanic Ufology. They claim the FAP says the re-opening is due “in response to the significant increase in claims and reports on Anomalous Aerial Objects commonly referred to as Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) in the skies over Peruvian Territory.”

They also say that OIFAA will also be sponsored by Peru’s National Commission for Aerospace (CONIDA), and that OIFAA will be made up of civilian personnel.

Inexplicata also provides more information on what will be discussed at the upcoming UFO meeting. It says they will present OIFAA’s agenda for the next few months, and their first order of business, which is a presentation by Professor Manuel Aguirre of the School of Archaeology of the University of San Marcos titled The Nazca Lines and Extraterrestrial Beings.

  1. I am happy that this is happening and even if people found out UFOs were not real, there has to be some explanation to the whole thing! Our world is unexplainable anyway…. (When you think about the whole picture!) Maybe that is what our un-seen un-known top entity wants! And we don’t rally know the truth about ANYTHING , but it will keep us wondering and keep our imaginations alive for ever! And I don’t believe we should fear that which we see in our own skies, I think it is what is out there that should be feared until we know exactly what it is we think is to be feared, because I really don’t feel GOD or that ENTITY is doing anything, but living like all of us here on our world and we all share that same world and Universe! The truth will someday be found out, but until then we just have to keep an eye open and that mind open too and wonder what really is and what really isn’t! Maybe that is what GOD and that ENTITY is doing just giving everyone something to do and that is to KEEP LOOKING UP!
