Interesting and controversial case mate - for the sake of balance here's further info on the sceptical explanation hosted at the NICAP website.


Excerpts:


The Anomaly Foundation
Solves the "Manises" UFO Case
20 years of mystery are over


On the 20th anniversary of the most infamous Spanish UFO sighting, the Spanish Anomaly Foundation (www.anomalia.org) has presented to the press a detailed report written by engineer Mr. Juan A. Fernández Peris from Valencia, which definitely closes this emblematic aerial UFO incident, which occurred on 11/11/79 over the Mediterranean Sea. After a scientific and painstaking investigation of almost two decades, the 'Manises UFO' case has been solved..


The Spanish Anomaly Foundation granted its "Ricardo Caruncho" research prize to Mr. Fernández Peris for his 200-page analysis report on the circumstances surrounding this incident. Investigation resolved that the original lights observed from the civil airplane were prompted by flare-ups raised from two combustion towers located in the major oil refinery of Escombreras, near Cartagena, Spain. The direction of lights as well as their apparent angular size matched exactly with the luminous flashes emitted from the chemical industry complex. Their brightness and special features produced an optical mistake, but the main culprit was a strong temperature inversion developed that night, one with an exceptional visibility. All factors together contributed decisively to the sighting distortion..


On the other hand, the Mirage aircraft manned by captain F. Cámara returned to its base at 02:07, after and unsuccessful pursuit of several non-defined luminous stimuli, which had not any relationship with the lights seen from the TAE airliner. The most amazing part of the incident, the EM interference suffered by the military jet when flying over Valencia city, these were caused by the electronic countermeasures adopted by US Navy helicopter's carrier "Iwo-Jima", a US Sixth Fleet's ship sailing near the Columbretes islands. The US Navy ship was at the highest alert due to Iran's hostages' crisis developed at the time.

In summary, an extraordinary and unusual mixture of chance circumstances lead to an exaggeration and distortion of events, otherwise trivial.

Cheers.


Wow that is some heavy propaganda in that 'skeptical' report. Words like "painstaking", years of study and plenty more colorful adjectives to describe the "job" they did. And the forceful application of "Case solved" etc.
Gotta love the efforts of counter intelligence even though it's an obvious deception.




Yes some very colourful, emotive language used there bud, will try to find the full report and post it.

This reminds me of the Tehran 1976 sighting. Radar lock, many civilian and military reports of seeing the object, failed electronics in two planes - and then official explanation is that everyone was looking at Jupiter. Even though the object dropped out another object that made for the plane, and when engaged, the pilots systems went offline. The objects re-merged, but.. Jupiter.

For that one though, even several senior military officials went on record to say they didn't think it was of terrestrial origin.

Baffles me that they really just give up and make a ridiculous conclusion, instead of actually being able to admit they have no idea what it could have been. They feel they must supply some mundane explanation, even if it makes absolutely no sense.

Great post! I was thinking of writing about this case but you saved me the trouble!!


One thing that almost everyone that supports the "official" explanation of the chemical plant seems to forget is that Escombreras, where the chemical plant is located, is quite close to the General Air Academy in San Javier (26Km in a straight line), the air base where most pilot officers in the spanish air force undergo training. So, most pilots in the spanish air force would be quite familiar with the refinery and the fires.

I have never been able to confirm if the pilot of the Mirage, Fernando Cámara who was a captain at the time of the accident, attended the academy, but it's highly likely.

Here you have a TV show where the pilot recounts his experience (in spanish): www.youtube.com...

Back then Tehran was very aligned with the West so the Iranians were probably taking orders from USA or London in doing the hush up, would be interesting to see how the modern day anti-west Iran would deal with a similar encounter and if they would tow the line.
