Excerpt taken from THE UFO CRASH/RETRIEVAL SYNDROME
Status Report II: New Sources, New Data
By Leonard H. Stringfield

Item B-8

The case of the mysterious flying object crashing into the mountains bordering Argentina and Bolivia, May 8, 1978, is well known by research. Was it a meteorite, part of a satellite or spacecraft? Rumors say nothing was ever found after extensive search on the precipitous slopes by Bolivian and Argentine military teams and by NASA.

In June 1979, I received a stack of clippings from Argentine newspapers with stories that claim otherwise. The sender, Nicholas M. Ojeda of Rosario, Argentina, stated inhis letter, "...As you know, our country is one of the most visited areas in the world by OVNIs as we call them in Latin America. Last year, May 8, we had a very significant case in the Salta Province in the north of the country. A long object crashed into the mountains. Although some people think it was a meteor or part of a satellite, the case is not closed yet. There is a report of a group of investigators who vanished mysteriously in the area. I really think something big hapened in Salta. NASA investigated, but there was not news of it. I have to tell you that in LaPaz, Bolivia, a huge USAF Hercules C-130 carried "something" from the area where the UFO crashed. What was it?"

When this question and the news of the cargo plane being there was put to Bob Barry's former C.I.A. contact, he confirmed the flight and admitted, "I was aboard that plane." He offered no answer to, "what was aboard?"
