Here is the story of the UFO crash near the village of Megas Platanos in Central Greece on September 2, 1990:

About 3 o'clock in the morning the shepherds and some villagers watched a small group of 5-6 UFO approaching the area from the North. One of them had an unstable flight and seemed to have a problem. Strange lights were coming from the UFO's fuselage, but no noise.

As an eyewitness, the shepherd Trantos Karatranjos, told me, suddenly the problem UFO lost altitude and crashed to the ground at a distance of about 500 meters from it. He didn't hear any noise, but there was a fire in the bushes. Trento Karathanos was very afraid to come closer and remained in his position, watching the phenomenon.

The rest of the UFOs in this group stopped over the site of the "accident", and 2 of them landed near the destroyed UFO. A few minutes later, the fire in the bushes was extinguished (probably, the fire stopped the crew of the landed UFOs). 

For the rest of the night, until dawn, there was an unusual movement from the ground to the flying UFOs. Light spots (something like small space rafts ??) they rose and fell, probably collecting fragments of destroyed UFOs and bodies (?) The crew. They completed the collection before sunrise, after which the rest of the UFOs took off and were lost in the sky!

Meanwhile, all the villagers were woken up and saw the whole operation.

Early in the morning, the villagers went to the place (where all this happened) and they saw on the ground a burnt oval in the ground with a sawn pine tree in the center (it is still in this place) and very small metal pieces and pieces of wire around the tree. 

Some people, for example, Argyris Levantas gathered a few of such delays. One strange thought was that at the edges of the burnt oval, the fire had stopped, as if it had been cut with a knife!

A few hours later, a group of Greek Air Force personnel arrived in the area and told the villagers that there was nothing serious about it, perhaps a Soviet satellite or plane had crashed! They also took some UFO parts and left the area.

Argyris Levantas sent some UFO in the space research Institute Brussels, and they told him that this object definitely came from outer space!

Original news

Here is the story of the UFO crash near the village of Megas Platanos in Central Greece on September 2, 1990:

About 03.00 hours that night, shepherds and some villagers observed a small group of 5 – 6 UFOs approaching the area from the North. One of them had an unstable flight and seemed to be with a problem. Strange lights came out of UFO’s fuselage, but without any noise.

As an eyewitness, shepherd Trantos Karatranjos, told me, suddenly the troubled UFO lost altitude and crashed to the ground at a distance of about 500 meters away from him. He didn’t hear any noise but a fire started burning the bushes. Trantos Karatranjos was very afraid to get closer and stayed in his position watching the phenomenon.

The rest of the UFOs in this group stopped over the “accident” spot and 2 of them landed near the destroyed UFO. In a few minutes the fire in the bushes was terminated (probably the crew of the landed UFOs stopped the fire). For the rest of the night, till dawn, there was an unusual traffic from the ground to the flying UFOs. Light spots (something like small space rafts??) went up and down, probably collecting the pieces of the destroyed UFO and the bodies(?) of the crew. They finished the collection before sunrise and after that the rest of UFOs took off and were lost in the sky!

Meanwhile all the villagers had been awakened and had seen the whole operation.

Early in the morning the villagers went out to the spot (where all of this occurred) and they saw on the ground a burned oval shape in the ground with a cut pine tree in the center (it is still in this place); and very small metallic pieces and pieces of wires around the tree. Some of the the people, like Argyris Alevantas, collected a number of these pieces. One strange think was that at the edges of the burned oval the fire stopped like it had been cut by knife!

Some hours later a team of Hellenic Air Force personnel came in the area and told the villagers that this was nothing serious, maybe a Soviet satellite crashed or a plane! They took some pieces of the UFO too and left the area.

Argyris Alevantas sent a piece of the UFO to the Space Research Institute in Brussels and they replied to him that the item came definitely from space!
