UFOs - Operação Prato

 
Operação Prato, a Brazilian Air Force investigation of a prolonged UFO flap in 1977-78, is one of the most important episodes in the history of world ufology. Today, more than a quarter of a century later, the classified files from the operation are still off limits to the public, but many of the secrets are known to Brazilian ufologists. Read on and you can learn what they know.

Operação Prato (“Operation Plate” in English) was once again in the news on May 20, 2005 as a result of a year-long campaign by Brazilian ufologists to get the Air Force to open its UFO files. In meetings on May 20 with ufologists at military headquarters in Brasília, three top generals acknowledged that the Air Force had long been concerned about UFOs and had systematically tracked them – known as “H” traffic – since 1954.

Furthermore, according to Brazilian ufology leader A. J. Gevaerd, who was one of those at the meetings, the Air Force leaders said they (1) recognized the importance of ufology, (2) pledged to help get classified files opened to the public, and (3) guaranteed that steps would be taken to form a joint committee of military and civilian UFO researchers to study the phenomenon.

This was a victory for the “freedom of information” campaign that was started in April 2004by Gevaerd, who is publisher of the Brazilian UFO magazine Revista UFO. Eventually, 36,000 people are said to have signed petitions to the government to get the files opened.

During meetings on May 20 with generals at two different agencies – the Integrated Center for Aerial Defense and Air traffic Control (CINDACTA) and the Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command (COMDABRA) – Gevaerd and half a dozen other ufologists were allowed to examine a number of UFO files from the Air Force archives. By far the most important were from Operação Prato.

In the Prato investigation between October 1977 and January 1978, intelligence agents from the Air Force base in Belém in northern Brazil interviewed hundreds of witnesses in Colares and about thirty other villages north of Belém. Many of the people had been burned by rays of light from UFOs that swarmed over the area.

During the operation the agents themselves saw UFOs numerous times and took hundreds of photographs (such as the one at left, taken at 3:25 AM on December 11, 1977; the sketch below shows what was seen at the time) as well as several hours of motion picture films. Some of the films reportedly showed UFOs diving into or coming out of the waters of nearby Marajó Bay. The investigation lasted only four months but continued unofficially throughout much of 1978 because of the personal interest of the leaders of the investigators.

During the Brasília meetings, the ufologists were allowed to examine about 110 photos and 160 documents from Operation Prato. They were also permitted to examine files about an airliner-UFO encounter in 1954, and the massive radar detection of UFOs over much of Brazil on the night of May 19, 1986.

Although very promising, the apparent harmony of May 20 does not mean the Air Force’s UFO files will definitely be available to the public. Before that can come about, the chief of the Air Force, the Defense Minister and Brazil’s president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, must first give their approval.

This is not the first time the Brazilian government has been open about UFOs. The most widely publicized event occurred on the night of May 19, 1986, when twenty one UFOs were tracked on radar crisscrossing the skies over much of the country. Six jet fighters armed with missiles were scrambled from bases near Rio de Janeiro and Brasília, and for several hours the jets chased or were chased by what were described as balls of light.

Four days later, the government held an un­precedented nationally televised press conference to let the pilots tell the country what they'd seen when they went after the UFOs.

"I watched the lights in front and on each side of my radar screen," said one pilot. "I managed to close to within ten kilometers of one light, but from that moment on I was unable to get closer."

Said another: "I was warned by ground control there were several contacts ahead of me approximately thirty kilometers away. I was also warned that contacts were ap­proaching from behind and they came on until they were three kilometers behind me. I had to dive and as I did the contacts started to climb."

Ground controllers told still another pilot that thirteen UFOs were pursuing him, six on one side of him and seven on the other.

The next day, Octávio Moreira Lima, then the Air Force Minister, went on national TV and said: "Technically, there is no explanation. We shall obtain the CINDACTA reports. We haven't the slightest intention of hiding anything from the press."

Two days later, Lima declared that nothing more would be said until a special investigation commission had given its report, which he said was expected in "about two months."

That was in 1986 and since then the government said nothing more about the incident until the May 20, 2005 meetings.

The1986 incident was not the first time Air Force pilots were permitted to speak publicly about UFOs, according to veteran Brazilian ufologist Alberto Francisco do Carmo. In November 1954, Colonel João Adil de Oliveira gave a public lecture about UFOs before influential Brazilians and members of the press in Rio de Janeiro. Following the lecture several pilots were allowed to tell the audience about their attempts to intercept UFOs near an air base in southern Brazil, saying they chased disc-shaped UFOs but had no luck catching them.

Colonel Oliveira was personally interested in UFOs and maintained a large collection of case files. He initiated and directed the first Brazilian Air Force study of UFOs, but he died several years later and the study was dropped.

Another study, also according to Alberto do Carmo, was begun around 1966 after a series of UFO sightings and encounters northwest of São Paulo. This office was called SIOANI (Serviço de Informação de Objetos Aéreos Não Identificados) and was headed by Major Gilberto Zani de Melo. He too took a serious interest in UFOs but the study was shut down a few years later after he retired.

The most significant instance in which the government showed such an overt interest in sightings was Operação Prato, when the Air Force investigated the Colares-area sightings in 1977 and 1978, but the results were never made public.

As stated earlier, Intelligence agents spent four months investigating hundreds of sightings and encounters. It was a small team consisting only of Captain Uyrangê Hollanda and six sergeants, who were armed only with a theodlite, cameras and tape recorders.

The men were sent to the Colares area only after several mayors complained that their villages had come under attack by UFOs and appealed to the Air Force for help. Whether the Air Force would have investigated the sightings if the mayors had not pleaded for help is not known, and most of the key officers who could tell us are now dead.

After four months, Brigadier Protázio Lopes de Oliveira, the base commander in Belém, shut down the investigation. Hollanda and his second in command, Sergeant Flávio Costa, then compiled a final report consisting of about 500 pages of documents plus several hundred photos and motion picture films of UFOs, and numerous maps and sketches. Many of the sketches show the paths of several UFOs passing over an area on the same night.

All of this was sent to Air Force Headquarters in Brasília and none of the records were made public until May 20, 2005, and then only to the handful of ufologists who had been invited to meet with the military leaders.

However, over the years photocopies of many of the Operação Prato documents and at least eighteen photographs were leaked to civilian researchers. These documents contain summaries of more than 300 sightings and encounters in Colares and the other villages. At least half of the reports were about sightings that Captain Hollanda and the sergeants themselves had.

In 1997, long after he had retired as a lieutenant colonel, Hollanda decided he was no longer obligated to remain silent about Operação Prato and publicly discussed Operação Prato.

He gave several interviews, including one with fellow researcher Cynthia Luce and me. He told us “many people” had been burned by UFOs during the UFO wave, both on the Colares Island side of Marajó Bay and on Marajó Island. Of the dozens of documents that were leaked, only a few mention any burns or injuries, and there is no mention of anyone dying.

Yet we know the team photographed burn victims, although how many is not known. A doctor once told Belém researcher Daniel Rebisso Giese that a colonel had shown him many photos of people who had been burned. And in 1993, Daniel and I interviewed one victim, Manoel Emídio Campo de Oliveira, who said investigators took photographs of a burn on the top of his left thigh. Daniel, a biologist, has done more research on the Colares flap than anyone else and has published a book about it, Vampiros Extraterrestres na Amazônia.

Wellaide Carvalho, the doctor in Colares at the time, told Daniel and me in 1993 that she had treated about forty people who had been burned and that two of them died. She said members of the Air Force team knew people had been burned.

Operation Prato investigated only a small part of a widespread flap that began months earlier, in April 1977, several hundred miles to the east in the neighboring state of Maranhão. It then swept west over the Colares-Belém area and continued far to the west toward Manaus in the Amazon region for months after. However, the sightings and encounters in the Colares area are perhaps the most significant ever. To my knowledge, no other series of sightings in history ever received such scrutiny from authorities. (For more on the flap, see these stories: Crab Island, Hollanda and Colares. Some of the sightings listed below are described in the Colares or Hollanda pages.)

Hollanda was convinced that the 1977-78 UFO wave covered an enormous area of northern Brazil. When Cynthia Luce and I last talked to him in August 1997 (he died about two months later), he said: “They (the UFOs) were moving from Maranhão to Colares, Belém, Monte Alegre, Santarém and Manaus. They were covering the Brazilian air space and the Amazon region in strips, like we do in aerial photography.”

As for the Prato documents that were leaked to ufologists, they were photocopied a number of times and passed on to others. Today, every one of the 400 to 500 active Brazilian ufologists probably has copies, and I was fortunate to obtain some myself. Who leaked the originals is something most of us will probably never know.

Over the years I was given three batches of documents (in 1991, 1997 and 1999). Altogether I have about 400 pages, including the eighteen photos of UFOs with identifying information and sketches on the backs of the photos. Of this 400 or so, about half were duplicates. Some of the photocopies are a bit faded and hard to read, and no doubt are copies of copies of copies, etc.

The documents are not always in chronological order, and sometimes a particular sighting will be described again in other documents but in more or less detail. Captain Hollanda and Sergeant Flávio, who prepared the documents, are now dead and we may never know if they made second or third sets, adding, deleting or correcting details. It is as if they were not always satisfied with their reports and revised them without destroying the originals ― all of which could have wound up in the Air Force archives.

At the time of the flap Hollanda was the chief financial officer for the Belém air base but under cover was head of operations for A2, the intelligence branch. It was he who selected the name Operação Prato. As he explained to Cynthia Luce and me in 1997:

“Why the name Prato? Prato in English is ‘plate.’ Brazil is the only nation that calls flying saucers ‘discos voadores’. In Portugal, they speak Portuguese too. They call it 'flying plate.' The Spanish say 'platillos volantes.' The French call it flying saucer but Brazil calls it flying disk, disco voador. I had to choose a name. I could not call it Operation Flying Saucer. I could not call it Operation Flying Disk. I chose a cousin of a saucer, a plate. That's why I called it Operação Prato.”

Although I do not speak Portuguese, I gained a modest vocabulary in fourteen visits to Brazil between 1978 and 2003, and several years ago I was able to translate most of the documents that I have. Nearly all of them were coded as to the villages and other locations of the sightings and especially the names of some witnesses (F01 to F45). However, several other documents contained the keys to those codes. For example, “F14” was Elísio de Souza Torres, 28, a farm worker.

I translated the documents, hoping to one day write a book about the flap. I probably already have enough material – I have been looking into this flap off and on since 1978 – but much more research is needed, not only in the Colares area but far to the east in the state of Maranhão and far to the west as well, all the way to Manaus and beyond. Now, nearly thirty years after the flap, many of people I would like to talk to are dead or difficult to locate. If the Air Force does one day open its UFO files to the public, the files may help young Brazilian ufologists to someday complete the job of telling the story of the flap.

As it is, I culled well over 300 cases from the Operação Prato documents and organized them in chronological order (by year, month, date and time of day), as you will see below. For example, the report on a sighting that occurred at 1:30 a.m. on November 5, 1977 would start with “771105/01:30” and would be followed by the location of the incident, name of the witness if given, and details of the sighting.

Translation notes:

1. The Brazilian “município” can be translated as “county.” The village of Colares is located on the island (and in the município) of Colares.

2. Many people in the flap area called the UFOs “Chupa” or “Chupa-Chupa” (from the verb chupar, meaning “to suck”) because they believed blood was being sucked (chupada) from them when they were hit by a beam of light from a UFO.

3. The reports on many of the sightings freely mix “feet” and “meters” in estimating distances and altitudes. Although Brazil uses the metric system, the instruments in many of the aircraft then used in the Brazilian Air Force gave readings in “feet”. Thus, the early training of pilots and airmen  included both measurement systems.

4. “PA-16” refers to the state highway Pará 16.

5. Alfredo de La Õ, the priest named in several sightings below, was an American and native of Texas. He lived much of his life in Brazil and died there some years after the flap.

6. Despite having access to half a dozen dictionaries and grammar books, I was not able to translate every word or didn’t understand what was said. Thus, I used ellipses to indicate missing words or phrases …

7. Even though the first agents did not arrive in Colares until mid-October 1977, the compilation below starts with sightings that occurred in August and September that the investigators learned about and documented.

8. Maps and other images are scattered throughout the file and may not be near the listings telling of those sigthings. That is because many of the images would be clumped together in one or two areas. So I spread them out to break up the long blocks of text.

Final Note: The dates of some images (maps, sketches, paths of UFOs) may refer to sightings not noted in the narrative because, as said before, the documents that we have are nowhere near the total number of documents sent to the Air Force archives.

As interesting as these leaked documents are, I feel they are only a fraction of the Operação Prato files, possibly a small fraction.


Some of the Operação Prato Files


770821/21:30 – Santo Antônio do Tauá – Nina Martins da Silva, 38, literate, domestic, resident Km. 19, Highway PA-16, Município de Santo Antônio do Tauá – She says she was alone in her house when she looked out the window and saw a light or object moving at low height and speed from east to west, about 20 meters high, over the trees next to the road. She didn’t hear any noise. The object was observed for a short distance and appeared to her to be between 1.20 and 1.50 meters in size. She said she had already seen other lights moving about in the sky. She added that the color was a bright yellow that was almost red. Dona Nina, according to her neighbors, has mental problems, probably epilepsy.

770902/22:00 – Santo Antônio do Tauá – Amelia Martins da Silva, 77, literate, domestic, resident Km. 19, Highway PA-16, Município de Santo Antônio do Tauá – Walking from Santo Antônio do Tauá to her home with one of her daughters Odete; when 2 kilometers from the village she saw coming from the right a reddish-yellow light, very bright (like the headlight on a car). Initially the light was cutting diagonally across the road; it abruptly changed direction (45 degrees) coming exactly in the direction of her and her daughter, rapidly crossing to… their left (? faint copy); they sought shelter under a tree… (faint copy)… the object stopped for several minutes, then slowly moved …and returned to its original direction (E/SW) and headed toward Vigia/Belém. Dona Amelia suffered no physical effects nor fear and thought the object was very beautiful and she was pleased to see such a new thing. The altitude was about 30 meters. DESCRIPTION OF OBJECT: Size about 1.30 meters (compared to a table in her home), one meter high, round like an inverted plate with a sharp protuberance sticking out from which came a reddish luminescence, being in turn the color blue from which came bright light giving the impression of being transparent. She did not see any human forms inside the object. Its movement was slow, but at times it accelerated with the speed of a jet plane. Dona Amelia was lucid and very sure of what she saw. (Odete Martins da Silva, 35 – Being by temperament very timid, she agreed with the accuracy of the report of her mother, confirming the facts. She had nothing to add.)

770910/19:30 – Santo Antônio do Ubintuba - Rio Bituba, side road at Km 32, PA-16 – Beatriz Almada da Costa, 32, literate, domestic, resident of Vila Nova do Ubintuba-Vigia – She was in her house with her children when she saw a ray of reddish light penetrating the roof (very faint copy)… spreads through her body with chills, and in the beginning feeling partly paralyzed and shaking. With great difficulty she screamed for help from her sister who lives nearby. Her sister soon arrived but saw and heard nothing. Dona Beatriz then had pain in her shoulder blades but had no other symptoms. No electricity in locality.
