Operation flying plate – the Brazilians sky were invaded by strange flying saucers in 1977

Brazil has a long history of UFO and even UFO sightings

One of the most notorious sightings, which lasted for months, occurred in 1977 on Colares Island, at the mouth of the Amazon, when inhabitants were “attacked” by unidentified objects whose radiation produced burns on the body that reportedly healed within ten minutes.

There were at least 80 deaths at the time, the region had to be evacuated and the Brazilian Air Force sent a team to investigate the event under the name of Operation Prato, which to this day remains unexplained.

Operation [flying] Plate spanned over the years of 1977 and 1978, providing around 2,000 pages with observations on sight done by the Brazilian Air Force, 500 pictures and 16 hours of relevant video material with various flying saucers and bewildering eyewitness testimonies.

Due to the authoritative military regime at that time, this hard-to-believe report transited only through the hands of high-rank military officials, but after decades of silence it also became available to the general public.

It was the autumn of 1977 when rumors began spreading across Brazil about the residence of a few marginal settlements in the Amazonian basin that had literally been invaded by strange flying devices with the ability to submerge.

The UFOs seen over the Marajó Bay region had various shapes and sizes, ranging from discs and cylinders to pyramids, and a later report even mentioned something about a 300 feet long (almost 100 meters) barrel-shaped mother ship.

The strange devices displayed an aggressive behavior towards the fishermen and had soon spread to the rest of the villagers. Nobody was spared by the attackers who were predominantly active during nighttime.

The tenants were mostly caught off-guard by a vivid beam of light that would paralyze them, followed by another reddish beam presumably used to collect blood samples.

The story of a terrified woman appears inside the recently declassified report. A resident of Baía do Sol recalled how on October 18, 1977, a powerful light had inundated her room all of a sudden, and she could see a green light that was scanning her face and felt the air heating up around her.

Before realizing what was happening, the light turned red and a peculiar being, “like a man, wearing something like a driver’s outfit” was pointing something like a gun at her. It was boiling hot when it touched her breast causing great pain as if “there were needles piercing” her skin.

Pinching marks similar to mosquito bites were carved into the skin of the victims, and so the attackers were dubbed “chupa-chupas” due to their eerie, vampiric nature.

The nocturnal attacks proceeded for months, and the locals from all nearby fishing villages were affected. Reports of submersible devices pulling people into the water had also started to surface.

It was then when the military detached a special Air Force unit led by Captain Uyrangê Bolivar Soares Nogueira de Hollanda Lima to look closely into this matter.

Hollanda was skeptical at first, but during the night the UFOs would reveal themselves, allowing the Air Force squad to take pictures and establish a report. The unusual appearances were more real than the captain had suspected, and soon turned him from a naysayer into a believer.

He then acknowledged the extra-planetary activity that was going on in that corner of the Amazon and forwarded a report expressing his newly-acquired beliefs, coupled with some hard evidence, to the base commander in Belem.

The outcome had Hollanda put in charge of the most ample UFO operation in written history, encompassing dozens of field experts and photographers that stormed the affected villages in the Amazon basin in search of additional answers. Over 300 locals were interviewed and numerous sketches depicting flying disks had been collected.

The abundance of material that had been gathered during the first months of 1978 offered the Brazilian military the craved answers. Because of the military dictatorship, Operation Plate was instantly classified and studied by the military officials in the following years.

Numerous researchers were appointed to solve this complex enigma, but the end conclusions were never released to the public, not even after the official report had been declassified in 2004.

We can however speculate on this intriguing matter and acknowledge its authenticity and importance. How can I be certain of such claims? Well, a couple of decades after the “chupa-chupa” case, Captain Hollande decided to share some insight that he was not allowed to speak until then.

During an interview with Brazilian UFO Magazine’s editor A. J. Gevaerd, he unveiled never before heard stories from this top-secret mission that he had been assigned to carry during the late 70s.

The insight provided was truly mind boggling, as it depicted an actual UFO invasion off the eastern coast of Brazil. Unfortunately, Hollande’s heroic disclosure weighted too much even for the newly instituted democratic regime, and so the former Air Force officer had to be silenced.

Three months had passed, and he was found dead, strangulated with his own belt. Hollande’s tragic and mysterious demise discouraged all others attempting to trail on Operation Plate.

It was then understood that such information is meant to stay away from all praying eyes, and those attempting to break this balance suddenly become prone to a series of possible ill-fated outcomes.

Thanks to the courage shown by Hollande, we are now free to read about his encounters during the 1977-1978 Operation Plate in the Amazonian basin. Don’t forget this was a real event.

It proves that governments have knowledge of extraterrestrial visitors and visitations for decades now, but for some reason they’re not telling us a thing about it.

Hollande’s Interview Translated From Spanish
UFO Magazine – If you have created a report, then it tells us that there has already been some progresses in the investigation?

Hollanda – Yes, when I arrived from Brasilia I already had agents who were sent to investigate occurrences of UFOs, because this thing was already happening so often in the area of Colares, which belongs to the city of Vigia, on the coast of Pará.

The mayor of the city sent an officer to the commander of COMAR to inform him that the UFOs were bothering the fishing very much. Some of them could not exert the fishing activity anymore, because of the objects navigated under their boats. At times, some objects even dived near them, in the rivers and in the sea.

The local population spent the night outside. The people set up fires and used firecrackers to try to drive the invaders away. It was panic that made the mayor contact the command of COMAR, asking for instructions, and the Brigadier General ordered that I was to investigate the sightings.

UFO Magazine – Was there at some point a participation or instruction from Brasilia so that the situation is inquired?

Hollanda – At the time, it did not participate in the discussions. There was only one captain and he received only orders. I was no part of this proceeding and I do not know with certainty as of the decisions that had been taken. But, for the little that I know, the decision was in the hands of the command of COMAR. If it had involvement of Brasilia, I do not know about it.

UFO Magazine – How did you organize Operation Plate? How many sections, how many people, how many missions etc? And did you organize all the tasks?

Hollanda – Well, we were a team. I was at the head of it. We had five agents, all sergeants, that worked in the second division of COMAR.

Moreover, we had informers on location, people in the places where the lights appeared, on the field,that helped them. At the time I divided the team in two or three different positions in the country. Clearly, we were constantly in contact with one another, through radio.

UFO Magazine – What was the immediate objective of Operation Plate? To observe flying disks, to photograph them and to contact them?

Hollanda – As a matter of fact I wanted to test this thing off exactly and completely. It wanted to explain it and clear it out. Because everybody spoke in the lights and objects and had even nicknamed them with popular names, such as “Chupa-chupa” (Ed.: “suck-suck” or “absorb-absorb”).

And, the Brazilian Air Forces needed to know what was really happening, since this occurred in the Brazilian airspace. The responsibility to inquire was ours. But in the beginning of Operation Plate, what I exactly I wanted was a confirmation the events that were happening.

UFO Magazine – What motivated the local population to call the lights “Cupa-chupa?”

Hollanda – There were a series of stories of people who had been touched by a light ray. All judged that the effect of the ray was to suck blood out of them.

And actually we verified some cases and we discovered that several of them, mainly women, had strangest marks on their left breast, and there were two punctures of needle around a brown spot. It looked like iodine burning. And those people had their blood sucked out, in small amount, by those lights.

Therefore they had started to nickname them “Chupa-chupa.” It was always the same thing: a light came out of nothing and followed somebody, generally a woman, who was hit on the left breast. At some times they were men who were hit, with marks in the arms and (pemas.) To tell you the truth, in ten cases, there were more or less eight women and two men.

UFO Magazine – And you have recorded and checked the marks on the people?

Hollanda – Yes, it was all checked and analyzed by doctors, who went with us to the locations at the time. Sincerely, I entered in this as the devil’s advocate.

What I exactly wanted was to demys
