The new HD series is a spin-off from the network's hit program "UFO HUNTERS" which premiered in 2005. UFO HUNTERS airs new episodes every Wednesday at 10PM/9C on The History Channel®. The team's access to UFO evidence is unparalleled and their expertise allows them to quickly identify bogus claims of UFOs. Together, they use eyewitness accounts, scientific experimentation, documents recently released through the Freedom of Information Act and footage that has never been seen before on television to piece together compelling — and at times chilling — evidence of UFO phenomena. Join UFO Hunters Bill Birnes, Pat Uskert, Dr. Ted Acworth, and Jeff Tomlinson as they separate fact from fallacy.

      aired: Mon, Apr 2, 2012

      On May 9, 1980, at the Mariano Melgar air base in Peru, radar picked up a UFO at the end of the runway and at a height of 1,800 feet. One of the air base's fighter pilots took off to intercept the object, engaging in an aerial game of chicken with the unknown object for over 18 minutes until lack of fuel caused him to return to the base. The team examines a declassified US Department of Defense report which analyzed this encounter, and interviews the pilot to get his complete story. And, on September 19, 1976, a UFO was seen by witnesses and picked up on radar above the skies of Teheran, Iran. The Iranian Air Force scrambled two F-4 Phantom jets. General Parviz Jafari, squadron leader and one of the F-4 pilots involved in the incident, explains how he pursued the object, got a radar lock and as he prepared to fire his AIM 9 missiles, something from the object shot out and disabled his weapons system, his compass and his radio.
