The UFO Case of Maresciallo Cecconi (1979)

The Maresciallo Cecconi UFO case is about an Italian pilot who had a close encounter with an unidentified flying object. It is claimed that this UFO incident was covered up by the Italian government.

It was like a Cylindrical tank at least eight meters. Perhaps between five hundred years someone will say us Why and How it made to remain stops there, suspended in sky, to thirteen thousand feet heightsays the Italian Air Force Marshal Pilot, Giancarlo Cecconi who witnessed a UFO on June 18, 1979

The “Cecconi Case”: an Italian UFO cover-up?

Then-pilot marshal Giancarlo Cecconi (born 1933 in Florence) was returning from a photographic reconnaissance of the Ligurian Apennines on June 18, 1979.

He was flying over the area between Rovigo and the Colli di Abano Terme when he got a radio message from the military airport’s control tower in S. Angelo di Treviso.

The offer to connect with the aerobase of Istria (TV), whose radar had reported an unidentified flying object, approximately on the vertical of Quinto di Treviso and therefore in the immediate proximity of the aforementioned airport, came from Angelo di Treviso, where he was stationed.

Mr. Cecconi, a member of the Italian Air Force’s 14 ‘Group of the 2’ Fighter Bomber Reconnaissance Wing, was flying a G 91 / R with four VINTEN cameras positioned as follows: two on the sides of the cockpit, one in the front position, and the fourth in the ventral position.

He had actually carried out the photographic surveys he was in charge of with them.

He then made arrangements with the Ground Control Body’s personnel to go investigate the object reported by the radar.

It occurred to him at the time of the sighting that it could be a solar UFO; nevertheless, he soon understood it was something else. It was a gorgeous day, and he quickly discovered that the “black spot” had distinct qualities.

It had the appearance of a dull black “fuel tank” with a fairing with two “mustaches” on its slightly flattened upper half; this was beneath something clear and white, which he assumed was a milky white “dome.” Light could not refract due to the properties of the surface. The item seemed to be around 19-26 ft. long and 10 ft. wide.

This was on the vertical of the Treviso military airport at an latitude of around 4265 ft. at the time of the close UFO encounter.

He took a first series of photographs with the front camera after making contact with the UFO, and then noticed that the object was still in the same position after making the “noose” (maneuver that consists of reversing the course) in a very short period of time, so he could take another series of photographs this time using the side cameras.

He determined that it was something solid from the fact that the object “… did not suffer from any turbulence…” while the plane approached him at a speed of roughly 300 knots (450-500 km / h).

On previous instances, the pilot has had the opportunity to witness UFO Solar. They did, however, feel the turbulence generated by the plane’s adjacent passage, and their movement may last up to a quarter of an hour; this object, on the other hand, appeared to remain static and did not vibrate, despite Mr. Cecconi passing it at a distance of roughly a hundred meters.

UFO suddenly disappeared

Mr. Cecconi was able to capture more than eighty images during the sighting, which showed the object always in the same frontal position, or slightly tilted; in fact, the object was never totally visible from the side, as if the “thing” wanted to “target” the plane.

According to the eyewitness, he appeared to be on the defensive. He was impressed since it never fully exposed the side and he had never managed to picture it entirely from the side.

“We lost it!” the Istrana radar center warned the pilot as he completed a turn. “It’s gone from the screen!” It had gone in the midst of a radar hit.

They further said that the object had mysteriously vanished from sight within a few moments from the control tower of the S. Angelo airport.

He looked in the area where the UFO was supposed to be, but it was no longer visible.

Following the plane’s return to Treviso, the professionals removed and delivered the film containers to the Development and Printing Department’s laboratory, as is customary.

He checked out the images as soon as they were developed and asked a friend (photo lab worker) for a copy.

Documentation

After Mr. Cecconi retired, ufologists requested that the Ministry of Defense release the case’s documentation, and they were told that the object in question, immediately identified, was photographed with edge and unequivocally identified by the personal photo interpreter in a cylindrical balloon, made of black plastic bags.

The response perplexed the ufologists, especially given Mr. Cecconi’s extensive experience and training, as well as the fact that he had a curriculum like few others and was one of the most well-known and respected pilot figures for seriousness and skill.

Conclusion

The story is complete because of eyewitnesses and photos taken from the plane. The unknown flying vehicle reminds me a lot of a barrage balloon.

Somme, northern France, barrage balloon, c1914-c1918

A barrage balloon is a huge unpiloted tethered balloon used to defend ground objectives against aircraft attack by sending steel cables aloft, posing a substantial collision risk to aircraft and complicating the attacker’s approach. Spherical barrage balloons were common in the early days of the barrage.
