In 1999, a 13-member French committee composed of retired generals, scientists and space experts issued the "COMETA Report," which included the examination of some 500 international UFO sightings, including radar or visual cases and previously undisclosed reports of commercial and military pilots.  The study also drew on data from official sources, government authorities and air forces of other countries.  Those findings are included in a 90-page document.
