In this article we will be taking a look at the case of the Iranian UFO 1976 incident that took place shortly after midnight on September 19th…
Just after midnight on September 19, 1976, the Tehran Air Force control center was bombarded with local calls claiming that something strange was travelling across the skyline.
Many of the callers labeled the object as a strange sort of helicopter displaying an incredibly strong light. Other callers simply classed the object as bird-like with a strange glow.
The command post checked their records and discovered that there were no registered flights in that area – what could this object be?
They quickly contacted Assistant Deputy Commander of Operations for instructions ( B.G. Yousefit ) but he claimed the object to be nothing more than a star in the sky.
He finally agreed to look at the local reports in more detail and decided that he was probably wrong – he needed a closer look at this airborne object.
After seeing the object for himself he immediately scrambled a F-4 jet from Shahrokhi Air force Base to get more information on the UFO.
The plane eventually took off at 1:30 AM and headed north of Tehran toward the strange craft that was listed as 70 miles away.
The plane managed to get about 40 miles into the journey before all communications and instrumentation were suddenly lost.
In a mad panic, the pilot turned away from the UFO route and headed straight back towards base. As soon as he broke the route his plane seemed to regain it’s functions.
The Second F-4
At precisely 1:40 AM a second F-4 made an attempt to close in on the strange bright object.
This second plane managed to get a lot closer to the object and reported back that it’s dimensions were about the same as a 707 jet aircraft.
As the plane neared the UFO it seemed to catch wind of their presence and sped off in the opposite direction.
This acceleration of the UFO was confirmed visually and by the aircraft’s instrument board radar.
The pilot was unable to catch up with the fast traveling object so he just tailed behind at a matched speed. The crew began to take notes on what they were following.
They reported that the UFO had rectangular pattern lights that rapidly shone blue, green, red and orange in color.
Without warning the UFO seemed to fire some sort of small object out of one of it’s cavities…the object headed straight for the pursuing F-4.
The pilot decided to fire upon this unknown object but the plane’s AIM-9 missile function seemed to somehow lock.
The pilot was left with little choice but to dive down out of the smaller UFO’s way…but it followed!
It only broke off it’s pursuit when the plane redirected it’s course and headed back the way it had came.
