A Spanish Air Force Lockheed T-33 encountered an unidentified object while flying at an altitude of 1,200 meters. Attempts to contact the object failed. The object soon moved off, playing with the aircraft, stopping awhile, waiting for it to approach, then moving again, and so forth. When directly above or below the object, the plane's radios ceased to function and emitted he type of interferences produced by storms. The object alternately moved ahead of the jet, hovered as if waiting for it to catch up, then moved away again. The pilots notified their base at Talavera-Balajoz  and two faster aircraft were sent up from the base at Torrejon. According to one of Europe's leading researchers, Antonio Ribera, these aircraft also experienced the same radio interference when in the vicinity of the object, which once again performed similar maneuvers before disappearing vertically at a vertiginous speed, vanishing instantly from sight.
