The Mirage F-1 was set to 1.4 mach to distinguish an object similar to an inverted cup without the base that changed color. Several radars detected the UFO in different areas, but the Mirage F-1 could not reach it; the UFO seemed to be playing with its superiority, until it disappeared towards Africa. The Ministry of Defense of Spain prepared a report where the acts carried out by the pilots, the radar recording and the testimonies of several civilians who saw the objects from the ground are collected.Robledo de ChavelaIt is one of the hottest areas of our country. In the 70s and 80s there was a large number of UFO sightings and even the sighting of a humanoid being. We are talking about Robledo de Chavela, a place near Madrid where there are gigantic antennas owned by NASA and INTA. The two best known encounters in the place happened in the early and mid-80s.In the first of the sightings four unidentified lights were seen flying around the bell tower of the parish church, lights that would later line up and set course for the NASA complex. Subsequently, a triangular-looking UFO was seen with a red wake in the back that also put direction to the space center, although the curious thing about this object is that it was also seen by witnesses on the Chamartín Station in Madrid.Also in the eighties several witnesses claimed to see a humanoid being, as well as many occasions in this type of phenomena, of great height. This supposed extraterrestrial came out of what appeared to be a kind of egg, which landed in a forest located between Robledo de Chavela and Valdemaqueda.The UFO of La GrañaAlthough the UFO phenomenon occurred much more in the 70s and 80s, there are previous cases in our country that are well known. One of them, declassified by the Spanish state, occurred in Ferrol on April 2, 1966. That day, around 11:30 p.m., several witnesses of the A Carreira radio station, including a corporal, saw a Luminous and opaque object that changed shape every few seconds. The corporal even took a picture of the object to the left of Monte Campelo.The phenomenon lasted up to 45 minutes, had a bluish color and was located a few hundred meters high. It was the change of form that most missed witnesses. A sailor who was in Narón, near Ferrol, could also see the object, this time located above the radio station. There was no further investigation.Legend has it, although this cannot be confirmed, that the UFO subsequently fell into the sea and was picked up by fishermen in the area. Upon arriving at the port, a convoy of the army waited for them to requisition the device, in addition to indicating that they should remain silent. The UFO was supposedly taken to the La Graña submarine base, introduced into one of the tunnels. Witnesses say that the object bore the logos of NASA and the American air agency, and that the US military ended up taking that object that looked like a spy drone. But … why the lights if it was a spy object?center_img Do you believe in UFOs? Many people answer this question with a refusal, but certainly there are more people who believe in unidentified flying objects, especially those that come from other planets or other galaxies. Many people believe that we are the only ones, others have seen or know someone who has seen something strange and, of course, there are also fans of this type of sightings.Spain is a hot country when it comes to UFO sightings and, in fact, many areas of our geography are visited by fans of these types of sightings to try to see something out of the ordinary. These are some of the most relevant UFO sightings in the history of our country, some of them registered by law enforcement officers or military bodies.The Manises caseIt is one of the best known UFO incidents in our country, especially for the entire sequence, for the departure of a fighter plane to intercept the object and, of course, for the recognition of the protagonist. The JK-297 plane with 109 passengers, gave notice of a sighting of strange lights next to the plane, so an emergency landing at Manises airport was decided to avoid an accident. The first time this happened in Spanish territory (1979).After the event, three unidentified forms were detected by radar – calculating a structure of about 200 meters – so two Mirage F-1 military aircraft of the Spanish army left to intercept the object. One of them was piloted by Fernando Cámara taking off from Albacete, who soon located a large static red light on the Manises airport. Camera was flying at about 1000 km / h and said that light went from being static to flying at the same speed in the blink of an eye.last_img read more

Big Sam says Spurs star Eric Dier is as good as Sergio Busquets

first_img“It says, ‘we’re going to get stuck in tonight, we’re going to make an impression on Spain in all aspects of the game to win it’.“That got a big cheer from the fans in the stadium and probably all the fans in England and certainly set the tone for the match.” Eric Dier starred for England against Spain 4 4 Dier can’t believe it as he is booked by the referee for his hard, but seemingly fair, challenge “Busquets has been a great player for Spain and Barcelona, don’t get me wrong. He’s a very effective player and is the first pick for every manager because he plays such a simple game.“But we laud him as a genius, whereas our own we don’t, we criticise.“Eric Dier was far better than Busquets last night.”There were so many talking points from the game – Raheem Sterling ending his three-year goal drought with a brace, Marcus Rashford proving his doubters wrong by also scoring, England’s first win in Spain for 31 years, Spain’s first competitive defeat at home for 15 years.But the moment which has got everyone talking, and one which is likely to go down in England folklore, was Dier’s scything challenge on Real Madrid villain Sergio Ramos. 4 Speaking on talkSPORT on Tuesday, Allardyce praised Dier’s all-round performance in Seville.In fact, the former England boss was so taken by his display that he believes the Tottenham man is already as good as the World Cup winner he faced up against on Monday, who he believes gets far too much praise for what he actually does on the pitch.“The praise about Busquets must be stopped, it was never evident last night, he looked out of sorts,” Big Sam added.“He’s no better or worse then Eric Dier, for me.“Busquets is a sitting midfield player who breaks up play, intercepts, passes it very quickly and is intelligent. That’s what he is. He’s not much more than that, but he gets a lot of praise for it.“Whereas Eric Dier does a similar job, but sometimes gets loads of criticism for it. He [Dier] has got the capability of being that. Eric Dier was booked for a crunching challenge on Sergio Ramos in the Spain defender’s own box Busquets did not have a great game against England, who counter-attacked to great effect in the first-half 4 Sam Allardyce believes Eric Dier is every bit as good as Barcelona great Sergio Busquets.England produced perhaps their best performance under Gareth Southgate to stun Spain with a 3-2 victory on Monday night, with Dier impressing in the centre of midfield. Only 12 minutes were on the clock when the Tottenham man flew into the Spain captain with a needless, but fair, challenge on the edge of Spain’s area.He was booked by the referee, but the old-school display of English grit appeared the spur the Three Lions, who went on to open up a 3-0 lead before half-time with a clinical display.His tackle has practically made Dier a national hero, and Big Sam believes it was key in setting the tone for England’s gutsy performance.Speaking on Tuesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Allardyce said: “I loved it!“A tackle like that can set the tone.“As a manager, you look at who is going get the fans on the edge of the seats. People will say that you can’t think of something like that to do it, but when you watch a game of football and you see that level of commitment, you saw the cheer it brings from the fans.last_img read more
