UFO tries to fly 'Top Gun' at Air Base in Santiago

Around the same time audiences were watching James Franco cut off his arm at the movie theater, and Justin Beiber was about to win Artist of the Year at the 2010 American Music Awards, UFOs were stalking Chilean Jets at El Bosque Air Base in Santiago.

On Nov. 5, 2010, thanks to a crowd of smart phone users and advantageous videographers, an unidentified flying object was caught on film from several different angles as acrobatic and fighter jets were performing an air show overhead.

According to an article written by Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal entitled  'UFO Caught on Tape Over Santiago Air Base', posted on the Huffington Post, despite the fact that the "solid, metallic and luminous" flying object was photographed and videotaped from over six separate viewpoints weaving around the Chilean jets, "nobody saw anything amiss" until "an engineer from the adjacent Pillán aircraft factory noticed something bizarre while viewing his footage in slow motion."

General Ricardo Bermúdez, one of the founders of the Chilean version of our FAA the CEFAA, said in response to the infamous Top Gun wanna-be UFO stunt videos, "Our mission is to study cases of unidentified aerial phenomena for which there is adequate data, to determine any possible risk to air operations. Since this is a worldwide phenomenon, it should be subjected to rigorous scientific analysis so we can come to viable conclusions."

Almost a year and half, and several analyses, later, skeptics are predictably skeptical of the sighting but scientists have reached a few undeniable conclusions:

1. The UFO was flying at unprecedented speeds between 4,000-6,000 mph.
2. Despite the intense speed at which the flying object was traveling, no sonic boom occurred which is typical of any known aircraft that exceeds the speed of sound which is 750 mph above sea level.
3. The zany flight pattern of the UFO suggests that it was under the control of an intelligent pilot.
4. The alien flying the UFO will most likely reveal himself at a bar near the Air Base in Chile singing "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers to semi-hot Air Force babes.
