Crash of an object described as a cylinder with a tail in flames, described as a big "smoky wine bottle". The crash causes supersonic bang that was
heard up to 150 miles away and that cracked windowpanes as far away as 30 miles in every direction
"In afternoon of the 6 of May of 1978, a cylindrical object with a flaming tail crashed in a mountainous region of Bolivia, near the Argentine
border. The fall was accompanied by a roar and a tremor similar to the one caused by an earthquake. The Bolivian Air Force discovered the tracks of
the impact in the south slope of El Zaire Mountain. The object had produced a trail of about 300 meters of depth by 500 of wide and 1.5 kilometers in
length. The rocks nearby the crash site were melted. The place was declared military zone, prohibiting the access to the Argentine gendarmerie and all
A commission, directed by two officials of the U.S. Air Force, Colonel Robert Simmons and Major John Heise, appeared in the scene. They gathered
several boxes from the remains of the crash and an enormous and heavy bulk, carefully wrapped. The load was transferred to the cargo compartment of an
American airplane, which took off immediately."

• Five years later, 5 documents are declassified by the Department of State, they reveal that both officers were military attaches of the American
Embassy in La Paz and traveled with a Bolivian aerial official in connection with Project Moon Dust.
