ufo files spanish ministry defence-released x files

The Spanish Ministry of Defence has released a huge amount of information about UFOs in Spanish airspace. It’s about a report of nearly 2,000 pages covering the period between 1962 and 1995.

Next to other countries, UFOs are also being spotted in Spain. The report is about 80 different sightings of unexplained flying objects.


Usually a UFO is seen as a flying object of extraterrestrial beings. The majority of UFO sightings mostly occur in the Canary Islands. The island of La Palma was apparently most frequently visited by aliens.

There are also relatively large UFOs spotted in Madrid and Barcelona. People have also reported unknown objects in Extremadura, Andalusia, the Balearic Islands (Mallorca and Menorca especially) and Castellón.

In 1968, the most UFOs were reported. The first sighting took place over San Javier in Murcia.

Behind Closed Doors

It is not known what happened after 1995. May be the data is still behind closed doors since 1996. Anyway there are still many questions to be answered.
