The mysterious case of the disappearance of an airplane piloted by Frederick Valentich, who reportedly told traffic control that he was being chased by a UFO off the Victorian coast 36 years ago, has long been thought to be one of the cases that can never be solved.
However, a recent development may shed some light on somewhat dim chances of getting the incident solved.
Documents gathered by air safety investigation team revealed that an engine cowl flap of Cessna 182 aircraft, the same model being operated by Valentich, was recovered at the shore of Flinders Island 5 years after the disappearance.
But many are skeptical if the 30 centimeter long, corroded component is the same ill-fated plane piloted by Valentich. The debris was broken in three pieces when it was discovered and now its part is apparently lost or scrapped.
Modern technology could verify if the debris was in Bass Strait’s salt water for five years. Richard, brother of Frederick, checked with aviation authorities about the cowl debris. Richard wanted to know if the debris was still in the storage somewhere.
Richard said that it is worth pursuing every single evidence that could link the incident involving the disappearance of his brother.
There has been separate report claiming that Frederick had shared his alien abduction experience to his girlfriend week before the mysterious disappearance. This report is being documented on the National Archives of Australia’s papers.
In the said report, Frederick told air traffic control in Melbourne that an unidentified aircraft followed his plane. The UFO was described by Frederick with four bright lights and was moving at high speed or orbited above his plane. After reporting about engine failure of his plane, no one ever heard of the pilot since then.
Report: New video from Thailand showing a cluster ufo bright white objects moving around each other while holding a steady speed.
These are not skydivers or lanters so what on earth could they be?
A man records white lights moving across the sky and notices some of them moving around the others!
Over Thailand the bright objects are clearly under some type of control while them move from the right to left of the screen. We are scrubbing out skydivers as the objects don't fall but move sideways, they are also not lanterns as some move against the wind and also they are not aircraft! So what are they?

SE Lexington, Ky - April 19 2014 11pm - 11:16pm Something hovered in complete silence for roughly 16 minutes over the area that seemed to be right near the beginning of Military Pike. Flashing Yellow Blue Red and White. Sadly it was at a distance where it looked like a blurry dot. I know enough about Meteorology and Space to conclude this wasn't a planet, satellite, etc. I have never been so perplexed about something in my life. What the heck.

Taylors Hill, Victoria, Australia - 17th April 2014, 12.26pm Just seconds after stepping out into the backyard with my camera I witnessed a Bright UFO hovering overhead near my residence in Taylors Hill, Australia. I filmed the UFO for a number of minutes, the object is not affected by the wind and it is seen coming to a complete stop before changing course north-east.
Cape Canaveral, FL - 15th April 2014 A young man got the catch of his life when he recorded a fast moving unidentified flying object (UFO). What is special is the location! NASA is near by! But what on earth is this craft? The young man wants to know if it is a UFO? Im here to say! YES. With military and two NASA installations we believe this to be alien craft which always scout military complexes and nuclear bases. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZOL6RQmjpA

Iowa city over Polopony court following me north on 380 to Cedar Rapids and ultimately east of my apartment building on 22nd Avenue SW - 04-07-14 from 9:05 pm to 9:55 pm once home I saw three ring shaped objects over Polopony Court in Iowa City when I was leaving work. I could see the rings lighted up. One was brighter on and faced me with a center light brighter. It was the brightest and lowest. It was descending and becoming brighter as I walked and then raced to my car. I traveled west on Hwy 6 going toward the Interstate 380 north entrance and continued to see three rings, studying them at each stop light and fearful that I might be distracted and have an accident. One was lower and brighter with greater detail than the other two, but they moved somewhat together. I saw only one minutes later when initially on 380, but eventually saw two, the brighter and lower one behind me and the second to my left and in front of me, appearing higher and going in and out of the clouds. When I finally got to Cedar Rapids, I thought they would both rise and vanish. As I got closer to my apartment building, I could Still see two that were higher in the sky. Then when I parked my car outside my apt. building, a bright red ring shaped object was hovering low and east of my apartment building, and I sat inside my car and looked right at it. I was talking to my co-worker on the phone because I was frightened, but she pooh-poohs UFOs even though I have previously pointed out the moving lights in the sky. Nevertheless, she stayed on the phone with me until I was inside my apartment. The red lighted one was above a hill with few or no houses (I have not lived here long). I can't take pictures with my phone.
Warrington, Cheshire, UK - Sunday 9th March 2014 at 4pm Strange object spotted over the Town on Sunday 9th March 2014 at 4pm, wasn't Birds, planes or any kind of regular shaped manned/unmanned balloon to my best knowledge, videos were taken on my iphone so bit jumpy as was trying to keep my son from running in the road. My partner witnessed these also. I was taking my son for a walk on Sunday 9th March in Warrington, Cheshire at around 4pm when I noticed the strange black object floating above the houses. at first I thought it was a police helicopter as they are regularly flying overhead but did not have any flashing lights or propeller noises. I began to film with my iphone; The object was stationary for around 2 minutes then began to move north-eastwards very slowly. I quickly discounted the obvious, Plane, helicopter, birds, Lanterns or a runaway blimp!! Although their was very little wind the object wasn't moving in same direction as clouds or wind. A car came so I had to stop filming as my son ran out in front of the car. I rang my partner who came out and witnessed the incident, I began filming again as the object started drift North eastwards. It appeared to be a rounded object with a flat back. I then noticed a 2nd 'white' object had joined it (cannot make it out on the Video) they moved in tandem and then disappeared in the distance. Neither did any manoeuvres or appeared to be piloted intelligently but nonetheless peaked my interest.

Rustenburgm, South Africa- 29 September 2013 17:00hours
On 29 September 2013 17:00hours in Rustenburg RSA me and my husband was driving. As we were driving I prayed as 30Sep is my birthday. I prayed to God asking, God please my life is hell please God let this year from my birthday be better. I said to God if I may ask can you please send me an sign that this year will be better. I said Amen. The next moment my husband that was driving down the hill (near the mall saw a light on his right side.) When I saw it, it was a light I have never seen in my entire life. Around the light was a ball of cloud it was massive. I phoned my sister in law that we stay with,( on a plot) to go look outside. She said it was over the water, by Olifants nek dam. Me and my husband parked in the mall parking. We saw it move right then left then it just vanished. I did take photos but with my phone but I have a photo from the internet who also took a photo. Ill attach mine and the one I got on the internet. The strange thing is if you google: 28 September 2013 from 26-29 September strange lights you will see a lot of lights appearing over the world. And the only thing these lights hold in common is that they all appear above water. Is these lights from the water and why is the government stating that on 29 Sep it was fuel dumped that burned. Was fuel then dumped in other countries also and how can 3 rows of light in 3 rows hovering underneath each other at another place be fuel!!!. A week after my sighting I again stood outside on the plot and again prayed! I asked God if I can just see some light again? I did not even say Amen and a light (like a ball of fire shot over my head at a massive speed not so high up in the sky. It went over the mountain and I could see light on top of the mountain. If you look at the mountain with binoculars it has a fence on the mountain. Why when I pray do I see these lights? is it God or what is it, I have been wondering since then. I had weird spiritual experiences if you want to know just ask me because its been proven by God that send me something(with a vivid dream an object and word from God in the Bible) . People think I'm crazy when I tell them but I'm now reluctant to talk unless people ask me and believe me. I will also go for lie detector test to prove this. I have actual proof at home but want to keep it because it means too much to me to let it go. I'm currently trying to find the deeper meaning of this object and it comes back to the Emerald tablet. The stone of God that represent judgment. This is shocking and soon if you do believe and see God not merely as the God that you were brought up to believe as A God but as a extraterrestrial being like in Ezekiel that are moving things to a point that will be soon. When I was 16 I saw a space ship in Cape town melkbosstrand and this is not something I like to talk about. People think your loco! I was brought up Christian and very strict not to believe in these things. But if you saw it how can you deny it? Through out my life I had weird cuts over my body that I could not explain? 3 days later it was gone. I actually googled this and it happens to many people. On this place where I live I had one on my back unreachable! What is going on is it connected to God or oh I'm so confused with my experiences since I was a child. I knew how a alien looked like since I was 6 before I even heard of them! I think I said too much. If you have awnsers I would appreciate it. I'm not lying or pulling your chain I'm honest and if you don't believe me delete my email. I will keep on digging until I get my awnsers. I know something is strange going on that I'm experiencing these things since I was a child. Its somehow connected to me. As I have some abilities that I did exercise but refuse to any more, because of my strong belief. I use to be a Medium if I liked it or not. I'm not scared of spirits or houses that is haunted and lived in a house where stuff moved and made undeniable noises. I was actually thrown with a cross once on my back about 3-4 feet away after I summoned the ?? Spirit into a room to remain there and as I wedged the cross in the door instead of falling to the ground it was thrown on my back. I turned around and said enough now!. I do still see spirits but I block it out. I refuse to communicate and I refuse to give them resolution. Lights used to flicker a lot when I entered a room as well as street lights. Even my husband experience the street light experience as if it rubbed off on him. We are both Christians and don't drink at all! So there is no way that I'm imagining it on a drinking spree. I don't want to be judged or thought of as crazy. I'm seeking awnsers and I don't really think people can give it to me. As we all are just puzzled on experiences of this kind.
