Date:  July 2, 1957
Location: Iceland
Time: 12:00
Summary: I was 14-years old, am 62 now. My friend’s ((name deleted)) dad, ((pilot’s name deleted)) was a PAX on a Navy Anti-Submarine Warfare Aircraft returning from Iceland. They were flying at 20,000 feet, above the clouds. A UFO shaped like a cigar case, shiny like polished aluminum, approx 400-feet in length and 75-feet in diameter pulled up along side the Navy plane. ((name deleted)) and all on board started taking pictures. ((witness)) took six pictures and reloaded a roll of fresh film and started clicking pictures as fast as he could aim and shoot. The UFO moved around the plane over the top, port side, under and back to the right side. It flew along side for several minutes. The pilot made some maneuvers and the UFO followed precisely. The UFO pulled away at a high rate of speed and disappeared in the clouds. Later the Navigator ordered everyone to turn over their cameras and film. ((witness)) kept the first roll, 6-pictures. He had the 6 pictures developed and there clear as a bell was the UFO. I was fascinated and looked at the pictures a long time. There was a row of windows along the side, like round portholes. This was a solid mechanical device that made ballistic moves that no man made aircraft could make. Nothing official was ever reported. I did not see the UFO personally but saw the photos and heard ((witness)) report. I believe what I saw to be absolutely genuine. /s/ ((initials deleted)) PS: ((name deleted)) was a ((rank deleted)) in the Navy not prone to jokes or exaggerations.

Summary: July 4, 1957; Nr. Campos, Brazil
Time not given. A circular, lighted object paced a R.E.A.L. Airlines plane from Campos, Rio State, Brazil, almost to Victoria, the Capital of the Espirito Santo State. This is approximately 230 miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro. Reported by the plane’s pilot, Captain Delgado, the object was also watched by his co-pilot radio operator, stewardess, and ten of his passengers. The UFO followed the airliner for several minutes, sometimes speeding up to fly in front of the plane. The object was circular “with up and down parts” according to Captaln Delgado’s report in the newspaper “Folha da Manha” published in Sao Paulo. Whether this referred to a turret is not clear. One unique aspect of the sighting was that when the plane and the object went through clouds, “little windows were lighted emitting a very strong light, which was put out immediately when the object came out from the clouds.” (UFOE, X)

Summary:  A woman first spotted a large and very fast object, moving high in the sky and on a straight path. She pointed it out to her husband and the rest of their family. They watched it for about thirty seconds until it disappeared. Compared to most cases, this was not much. But the husband thought that it was an unknown, and he was Nathan Wagner, the chief of Missile Flight Safety of White Sands Proving Grounds (and, today, a member of the WSPG Hall of Fame). Wagner, who knew about many safety-related airliner incidents and, apparently, many UFO incidents as well, stated to the newspapers that he felt that these unknowns could have something to do with the near-miss airline incidents recently reported.47 (UFOs & Government, 249; Blue Book microfilm Roll 28; UFO Investigator 1 (2); Aug-Sept 1957

Summary: Mr. Joao Guimaraes, who is a professor at the Catholic Faculty of Law in Santos, was sitting near the shore when he saw a hat-shaped, luminous craft approach from the sea and land near him. From it came a metallic stairway. Two normal men with long, fair hair hanging to their shoulders, a youthful appearance and wearing one-piece suits, came down, gave no verbal answers to his questions, but invited him “telepathically” to come aboard the craft. Inside the illuminated compartment, he sat on a circular seat with the crew. The machine rose for a short flight. On his return, Guimaraes found that his watch no longer worked. (
