      Re: Campeche, Mexico Case of March 5, 2004

      NARCAP has recieved several inquiries regarding the March 5, 2004 case
      involving alleged observations of unidentified aerial phenomena by a
      Mexican Air Force C-26 Merlin during a routine smuggler interdiction
      flight. Though NARCAP is a national organization reflecting US aviation
      safety concerns, there are several points that NARCAP can offer to the
      interested public with regards to this case.

      Coincidentally, NARCAP staff were meeting with Mexican and regional
      aviation officials in Mexico City, MX just prior to the release of this
      material and were advised of the case as well as the impending press
      conference.

      This incident gained a lot of attention in the world press and there was
      (and still is) a great deal of speculation regarding the source and nature
      of the detections. Numerous news organizations and individuals including
      various members of the scientific community have stated their opinions in
      the public forum. In almost every case these opinions were offered without
      examining the material beyond a cursory review of very short film clips of
      the FLIR camera footage and without conducting any analysis of the case
      and supporting evidence.

      Additionally:

      1.) The Mexican Secretary of Defense and the Mexican Government have made
      no public claims regarding this incident. They have only acknowledged that
      they were the source of the material.

      2.) Niether SEDENA nor the Mexican government have released complete
      copies of all the material related to this event to any researchers.

      3.) The material that has been made available via a third party does not
      contain complete and unedited copies of the Forward Looking Infrared Radar
      (FLIR) film. No radar data has been provided.

      4.) An examination of the materials that have been made available may
      offer a mundane explanation however, verification of any conclusion may
      depend upon the missing radar data.

      5.) The interrupted evidentiary chain of custody combined with the
      incomplete nature of the materials that have been released will severely
      inhibit any objective analysis of the incident.
