Is this the case UFO skeptics have been dreading?
Sightings of mysterious flying craft with capabilities unknown on Earth have confounded mankind throughout recorded history. Most have been convincingly explained away as unfamiliar aircraft, natural phenomena or illusions. But then there are the others, witnessed in our time by pilots and air traffic controllers, military leaders, scientists, law enforcement officers and other trained observers, sometimes with physical evidence, including corroboration on film and video.
“We don’t know what they are,” says Nick Pope, a former head of the official UFO office in Britain’s Ministry of Defense. “But they do exist.”
As agreed by authorities around the world, these truly unexplainable unidentified flying objects appear solid, metallic and luminous, able to operate with speeds and maneuvers that defy the laws of physics. And, most chilling of all, they often behave as if under intelligent control.
One such case has just come to light in Chile, and was presented by government officials for the first time at a press conference on March 13.
It was a glorious, sunny morning on Nov. 5, 2010, when crowds gathered to celebrate the changing of the Air Force Command at El Bosque Air Base in Santiago. From different locations, spectators aimed video cameras and cell phones at groups of acrobatic and fighter jets performing an air show overhead. Nobody saw anything amiss.
But afterward, an engineer from the adjacent Pillán aircraft factory noticed something bizarre while viewing his footage in slow motion. He turned it over to the government’s well known Committee for the Study of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena, or CEFAA, for analysis.
The stunning conclusion: The Chilean jets were being stalked by a UFO.
In the clips below, the UFO is difficult to see because it’s moving so fast. The clip is repeated with the UFO highlighted as it makes passes around three separate groups of airplanes:

I don’t pretend to be a video/photographic expert, but i do believe this footage has some telltale signs of being a fake.
Above are two frames from the movie. The problem is in the frame on the right where the trees display a blurring or double-image effect. This is consistent with either motion blur (camera shake or movement while recording), video compression or possibly video interlacing. Given the movement of the camera by the camera operator, i believe it’s impossible to have everything in this frame blurred EXCEPT the object in question. This would, however, be completely consistent with a blurred video frame that had an object superimposed (edited) onto it. In other words, this film is faked.
Additionally, this object was supposed to be flying at impossible speeds – yet the object is not blurred in the video.
The image above exhibits the same inconsistencies as the first image. The jets in the second frame are blurred or double-imaged, yet the unidentifed object is not. This looks like the object was superimposed (edited) onto these frames.
The object should be blurred, if for no other reason, the alleged speed of this object.
The image above fails the smell test for the same reasons.
(BELOW) These are a series of frames taken from the video depicting the movement of the object from point “A” to point “B”. These series of frames occurred over an approximate 3 second period.
The first thing you should note is the complete lack of blur on the object allegedly moving at lightning speeds. There are other anomalies:
(ABOVE) Position B appears empty.
(BELOW) The object is starting to appear in position “B” while still located in position “A”.
Still: No blur.
(ABOVE and BELOW) The object is simultaneously occupying both positions – “A” and “B”.
(BELOW) In the remaining frames the object is seen continuing to occupy both positions – slowly fading (as opposed to instantaneously disappearing) from position “A”.
My conclusion: FAKED!
