Chilean officials have officially released video of what they call an Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, or a UAP, captured in 2014 by two officers in the Chilean Navy flying an Airbus Cougar AS-532 helicopter equipped with an infrared high-definition FLIR camera.
According the report submitted by an unnamed captain within the Chilean Navy, the helicopter was on patrol in the “coastal sector between the port of San Antonio and Quinteros” on November 11, 2014, when the FLIR camera operator spotted an unknown object flying at a consistent speed similar to that of their helicopter. They were traveling at approximately one hundred and fifty two miles per hour at an altitude of 4,500 feet with “perfect horizontal visibility.”
The official Chilean government statement continues:
“The sighting was visually confirmed by the two officers who made up the crew (pilot and camera operator) and lasted more than 10 minutes. Officers questioned Air Traffic Control whose radar failed to detect the object. They also received no response from the unknown traffic when trying to interrogate it in the frequency arranged for these cases.
