(ORDO NEWS) — The Badajoz UFO incident is one of the strangest UFO phenomena to have occurred in Spanish history, linked to its air force.
The incident became popularized as the “Green Man of Talavera la Real” as two Spanish soldiers, José María Trejo and Juan Carrizosa Luján, claimed to have seen and shot the creature of unknown origin.
Around 1:45 local time on November 12, 1976, José María Trejo and Juan Carrizosa were on duty (each in his own booth, about 60 meters apart) in the so-called fuel zone of the Talavera la Real airbase, Badajoz, Spain.
Suddenly, they began to hear some strange noise, at first it sounded like radio interference, but it turned into a high-pitched, high-pitched whistle that hurt their ears.
The soldiers thought the sound was made by someone who had entered the war zone, but after five minutes it just stopped. Trejo called out to his partner Carrizosa if he heard him and he said yes.
They prepared their weapons, “Z-62” submachine guns with standard ammunition, and conducted a visual inspection of the surroundings.
The sound started again, and it was so intense it felt like their heads would explode. It stopped again after five minutes, and they saw a light in the sky, vertically, like a flash, which lasted about 15 or 20 seconds.
José Hidalgo, another companion, approached the clock boxes, accompanied by one of the wolf dogs, asking them if they had seen the flash.
Fearing that someone had entered the facilities with the intent of sabotage, they decided to notify Pavon, the guard corporal. He ordered them to conduct an eye inspection.
With loaded weapons, they began to walk parallel to the wall separating the main road from the base. Seeing that the dog, specially trained for these cases, did not show any signs of anxiety, they were calm enough.
But suddenly, when they walked about 300 meters, they felt a whirlpool and heard the branches of a nearby eucalyptus tree break.
This alerted them, clinging to their machine guns, they released the dog, which went straight to the place where they heard the noise of the branches. They waited for the dog to make some kind of noise or bark, but a few seconds later it returned dizzy, shaky.
This action was repeated four or five times until the dog began to circle around the soldiers (a defense technique these dogs are taught as a defense against danger to the person they are supposed to protect).
They stopped several times, but no one answered until José María Trejo had the feeling that someone was following him.
At 15 meters from them they saw a greenish figure, consisting of points of light, about 3 meters high, with a small head and a kind of helmet, with a thick body and long arms (in a transverse position).
Trejo tried to fire, but before he could do so, he felt a general stiffness and fell to the ground. Hidalgo and Carrizosa began to fire, 40 to 50 shots were fired at this creature, which lit up like a flash and disappeared, again returning to the screeching sound they had heard before this appearance, this time lasting 10 or 15 seconds. They helped Trejo get back on his feet and put the entire base on high alert.
The next day, a total of 50 people searched the area where the event took place and found nothing. Not a single cartridge case, not a bullet embedded in the wall surrounding the perimeter, nothing.
A few days later, when Trejo entered the base’s dining room, he fell unconscious to the ground after showing signs of blindness. He developed health problems in which conditions of blindness are mixed with subsequent admission to a hospital facility.
His last hospitalization was on 30 November at the Air Force Hospital in Madrid, lasting one month and with the conclusion that he suffered from a “nervous imbalance”. From that moment on, these “nerve imbalances” did not recur.
Air Force experts confirmed that the machine guns were fired, but what happened to the shells? What or who was shot?
According to the main characters of the story: “We don’t know what it is. But what we have no doubt about since the three of us saw it so well is that “there was something like a human being, but very tall…”
The Talavera la Real air base is an airport in Badajoz, right on the border of the municipality with Talavera la Real, in the province of Badajoz, 15 km from the city, in the heart of the Guadian lowland. It began to function in 1953 under the name of the School of Reactors.
Although it originally had two runways, it currently only has one, which has undergone several extensions to reach its current length of 2,805 meters and is shared with Badajoz Airport, which is located on the other side of the runway.
The 23rd Wing of the Air Force is located at an air base designed for the education and training of combat pilots who will make up the fighter units. They have a Northrop F-5 freedom fighter.
