Frederick Valentich’s disappearance while on flight on October 21, 1978, Southwest of Melbourne, Australia, has become one of the most studied and publicized cases in the world. Despite the coordinated efforts between the authorities and private agents, not a trace from the airplane was ever found.

The existence of an audio tape from the conversation between the pilot and the Melbourne control tower, besides the account of three witnesses that saw the plane going down with a great object with bright green lights on top of it, clearly reveal the encounter with a UFO.

This information was handed to CEFAA by American researcher Richard Haines.
