The UFO Phenomenon
in Mexico has been recognized as a fact in an historic
and unprecedented decision taken by the Mexican Department of
Defense under his Secretary of Defense General Clemente Vega
Garcia, commander of all armed forces in this country.
The unusual measure that will change history here in Mexico was the
result of a high level incident in which a Mexican Air Force
airplane, military pilots and personal were involved in a situation
with several UFOs while doing a routinely surveillance
antinarcotics operation to detect a drug smuggling flight.
The news was released last night, Sunday May 9, 2004 by Jaime Maussan, researcher and TV journalist during the TV show
Los Grandes Misterios del Tercer Milenio (Great Mysteries of the
Third Millennium) broadcast by Mexican TV network Multimedios
Television in the city of Monterrey, N.L.
Jaime Maussan announced that on Tuesday May 11 there will be
an international press conference to present the case and the
investigation made by the Department of Defense along
with Maussan’s research team in an unprecedented
collaboration. The press conference will take place at the Hotel
Sevilla Palace in Mexico city at 11:00 AM were all the
international media representatives have been invited.
Monday’s night an advance report will be broadcast on national
All the facts and materials of the investigation will be presented
at the conference including the official footages by the Air Force
as well as interviews with the pilots and personal involved in the
On April 20, 2004 Jaime Maussan was contacted by a high officer of the
Department of Defense to have a private meeting and discuss a
subject of a high relevant matter.
The next day Maussan met
General Clemente Vega Garcia, Secretary of Defense and
his major staff and was informed about an incident that took place
on March 5, 2004 on the aerial space of Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche
where an Air Force Merlín C26A Bimotor airplane was doing a
routinely flight to detect a smuggling drug airplane during an
The Merlin C26A was equipped with a high tech advanced digital
equipment to register and record all the activities during the
operation. Powerful sensor detectors like a FLIR STAR ZAPPHIR II
and a RADAR AN/PS 143 BRAVO VICTOR 3 were being used by
qualified personal aboard the airplane and all the operation was
being recorded both in normal and infrared mode.
The airplane was under the command of Mayor Magdaleno Jasso Núñez.
The FLIR operator was Lt. Mario Adrián Vázquez and the
RADAR operator Lt. German Ramirez, all of them members
of the 501 Aerial Squadron.
This airplane is programmed only for surveillance and detection
procedures, not for interception or combat maneuvers.
Their duty is
to detect and identify drug dealers flights and then immediately
report them to the base where combat planes are scrambled to
intercept those narcotics smugglers.
17:00 PM the Merlin C26A detected an unknown traffic at
10,500 feet over Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche airspace and
according to the protocol and suspecting a drug dealer
airplane Mayor Magdaleno Jasso made a maneuver to
approach the unidentified traffic at certain range to get a
close look and record the target with their equipment.
the same time Mayor Jasso reported by radio to the
base that a possible suspect was detected requesting the
interceptor planes to be in alert condition.
AN/PS 143 BRAVO VICTOR 3 was detecting the unknown
traffic and the FLIR STAR ZAPPHIR II was recording
the object in infrared. As the Merlin C26A tried to approach
the unknown traffic to make a visual identification it
suddenly in a surprising maneuver escaped flying away at
By this time Mayor
Jasso tried to persecute the target but it was very fast. All
this was being recorded by the FLAIR and also the radio
conversations with the base describing the unexpected maneuver of

moments passed when suddenly the unknown object returned and
began following the Merlin C26A in a
This was detected by the RADAR
and the FLIR while the personal aboard were trying to
make visual contact of the unidentified traffic now
following them. In seconds the equipment detected now not
only one but two traffics following them.
The images in both
RADAR and the FLIR were clear and unmistakable. But both
pilot and personal still couldn't have visual contact with these two
traffics following them adding a great suspense to this
Mayor Magdaleno Jasso reported to the base the unusual
incident that was taking place giving detail of all the information
registered by the equipment while keep trying to make visual contact
of the unknowns.
The FLIR kept
recording in infrared every movement made by the two unknown
objects that seemed to be keeping their distance from the
C26A but still following it.
The personal aboard the
Merlin C26A were confused and disconcerted seeing the
images on the FLIR and the RADAR asking themselves
what was going on with this unusual situation.
THE INCIDENT TURNS
But the stressing moment that the C26A crew were passing through was
just the beginning of something more dramatic that will turn their
undesirable experience into a real nightmare.
Some minutes passed while the Mexican Air Force Merlin C26A crew
continued making maneuvers to have a visual contact of the unknowns
because despite both RADAR and FLIR were showing perfectly clear
both unidentified objects for unexplained reasons there was not a
visual contact even that the objects by this time were at close
It was during this round and round maneuvers to identify these two
objects that something amazing happened. In a matter of seconds more
unknown objects arrived to the scene and the disconcert of the
C26A crew was total.
The RADAR and the FLIR detected immediately the presence of
nine new objects of the same size and characteristics, unknown
objects that arrived to the scene surprisingly like coming from
nowhere. Now the situation has entered into a high level of danger
so Mayor Magdaleno Jasso reported by radio to the base this
new situation requesting instructions.
But the most unusual thing was that even that there were eleven
unknown objects close to them still the crew couldn't see them, no
visual contact with the unknowns was possible for some reason never
experienced before by these high trained men.
However the high tech
sophisticated equipment and sensors were not lying, there were
eleven targets outside them with unpredictable intentions.
At the middle of a complete confusion and disconcert among the
C26A crew the unknown objects suddenly made a maneuver
surrounding the Mexican Air Force airplane in a circle at close
The RADAR and FLIR presented an unusual image
of an eleven objects near by in a circle formation around the
Merlin C26A. The situation turned out of control.
Mayor Magdaleno Jasso reported to the base that the C26A
situation was now in red alert, surrounded by eleven mysterious
round shaped objects camouflaged with a certain unknown advanced
technology that avoid any visual contact of them. However Mayor
Jasso kept the calm as well as the crew who were working fast
measuring and recording every detail of this unique incident
conscientious of their duty as military and trained men.
Confronting this situation surrounded by unidentified objects in an
unpredictable ending Mayor Magdaleno Jasso took the decision
of turning out all the airplane lights and wait to see what
Moments of high suspense lived by the crew while the
FLIR was recording the images of those bright objects even that
visual contact was not possible, moments of silence and uncertainty.
The C26A crew kept calmed doing their duty, documenting every
moment of the strange incident while Mayor Jasso continued in
contact with the base. After some stressing minutes the eleven
objects disappeared giving an end to the strange experience that
these members of the 501 Aerial Squadron just lived.
The Merlin C26A
returned safe to the Air Force Base and Mayor Magdaleno Jasso
prepared a complete report of the incident along with the C26A crew.
The Secretary of the Defense took notice of Mayor Jasso’s
report and began a full investigation studying and evaluating every
element of the case. Statements of the crew, images, lectures,
measurements of all the equipment as well as a complete evaluation
of the meteorological data .
The incident was taken very seriously
by the Department of Defense Staff and after several weeks of
investigation they decided under the command of General Clemente
Vega Garcia to contact researcher and TV journalist Jaime
Maussan for a special collaboration in this investigation as an
experienced researcher in these matters.
On April 22, 2004 General Clemente Vega, Secretary of Defense
gave Jaime Maussan a copy of all the tapes and data collected
by the Merlin C26A during the incident for study, evaluation and
analysis by Maussan’s research team as complement of this
investigation and as an external collaborating source trying to
establish a definition of the possible motives and consequences of
the March 5, 2004 incident.
General Vega as well as his staff were very open to discuss
the subject and showed their legitimate interest in conducting this
investigation in order to establish the truth of what happened.
General Vega authorized the Merlin C26A crew to give Jaime
Maussan the interviews needed without any censorship, giving all
the facilities to present this case to the Mexican people, an
historic and unprecedented decision that will open a new era of
mutual collaboration among the Mexican ufologists and the military
forces, a collaboration based in respect and interest to find the
truth of the intense UFO activity we have been experiencing here in
Mexico since the beginning of the Amazing Mexican UFO Wave back in
July 11, 1991.
This new era of relationship among the Mexican UFO witnesses,
sky-watchers, ufologists and our military forces will try to
establish and give form to a new legislation in our law system
focused to be prepared for any incident involving these unidentified
flying objects, our people, our commercial and military airplanes
etc. for learning and understanding what are we going to do and how
are we going to confront this reality.

The located zone was in optimal meteorological conditions, winds no
bigger than 35 kms/hour, relative humidity of 72% and a
temperature average of 34° C. At 10,500 fts. temperature average
-27° C and a visibility average of 96%.
The region doesn't register volcanic activity nor tectonics
movements. There was not detection of electric current storage and
distribution of importance.
On the basis of the previous thing there were not found sources of
electric magnetic phenomenon by electric centrals or seismic
movements. There were not found possibilities of any Ball of Fire
effect caused by volcanic activity.
There were not registries of solar storms in that moments or
relevant solar explosions. Therefore the possibilities of ionization
luminic effects like St. Elmo Fire or electric storms were
discarded. Study and Analysis elaborated by Rodolfo Garrido

This article tends to confirm my suspicions that these craft use
light-waves as camouflage.
Think about this. Infrared picked them up, but they were not
visible to the naked eye, even though they were there. Have you
ever taken a camcorder, and pointed a TV Remote Control at it,
holding down the channel button, while looking through the
viewfinder of the camera? You will see the infrared light
through the viewfinder, even though you can’t see it with the
naked eye. This may explain the large amount of sightings that
are caught on tape, yet no visual contact was ever made with the
Most of us are unable to see beyond the basic spectrum of light.
We are unable to see ultraviolet light-waves, and we are unable
to see infrared light-waves. Some people have more of a
sensitivity to the light spectrum than others, which could
explain why some people have more sightings than others.
Wouldn’t it be great if you had the technology to refract these
light-waves in a controlled environment to completely camouflage
your person, or vehicle? We may not have it, or at least the
general public isn’t aware of it, but most certainly, they do.
And this article verifies that.
I’ll be interested to see what the U.S. Government has to say
about this case, especially since it is coming directly from the
mouth of the Mexican Air Force.
Always remember, just because you can’t see something, it
doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s not there. We are infants in
understanding, and although we may think we know everything, we
most certainly have no clue.
