The Bobadilla Military Facility is located in the province of Málaga, which was an operating military base with considerable activity for a long time, but it is still not known for sure why the Spanish army stopped making use of it, at least as far as public opinion is concerned. Given that it is under the control of the EA – Spain's “ejercito del aire” - the air force) and its activity is completely zero, many wonder the reason why the Ministry of Defense insists on keeping it open, even when it has no use whatsoever, in theory.
In the 1970s, while this air base was operational, a strange UFO event took place within it. Toward the end of the decade, a fleet of unidentified flying objects was photographed by a group of UFO buffs from the lovely province of Málaga who decided to look into the sighting, requesting permission from the highest official in charge to secure information on sightings in the area. The officer-in-charge placed a sizable file on the surface of his desk and named a price for it. In spite of this, and the materialistic interest in the subject, the base has been and remains the subject of phenomena related to the UFO phenomenon.

On the night of the 9th of May 2010, a UFO which changed size and shape appeared above an ammunitions depot of the air force in the Malaguenan locality of Bobadilla Estacion, being seen by a good number of military personnel and picked up by one of installation's security cameras. A reporter from ANO/CERO has managed to break the wall of silence surrounding this case, by obtaining the images of the unidentified object and interviewing some of the witnesses in this exclusive.
