UFO seen over Arizona by two different airline pilots

UFO seen over Arizona by two different airline pilots

The pilots of two commercial planes flying over the Arizona desert reported seeing a UFO overhead, according to communications released by the Federal Aviation Administration.

War Zone obtained a recording from the FAA of the calls reporting the freaky encounters.

Somewhere between the New Mexico border and the Sonoran Desert National Monument, in mid-afternoon on February 24, an American Airlines pilot saw an object with an huge reflection hovering at around 40,000 feet, according to KTAR news.

"Negative", an air traffic controller at the FAA's Albuquerque Air Traffic Center in New Mexico answered.

He told controllers: "Don't know what it was".

Based on the conversations, the UFO hovered above the eastern-bound airplanes in the opposite direction and was located a few thousand feet above the aircraft.

A few minutes later, the controller asks American 1095 to let him know if they see anything "pass over you here in the next 15 miles".

A UFO was spotted - whether it was alien or something earthly that we don't yet have an explanation for is now unclear.

While the flying a Learjet, the pilot noticed an unfamiliar object. Moreover, he clarified, "yeah it passed right over the top of us".

The American Airlines pilot later radios to the controller again, asking if the unidentified object was a "Google balloon".

The air traffic controller couldn't verify whether a third aircraft was present in the zone when the pilots sighted the weird object.

"OK. Something did", the pilot replies. Another can then be heard saying rather matter-of-factly, "UFO".

For the first time previous year, the Pentagon confirmed that it had run an operation, known as the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, to investigate reported UFO sightings.

The American Airlines pilot said he couldn't make out what the object was but it "had a big reflection" and was going in the opposite direction.

In a witness interview that resurfaced, a police officer claimed he saw soldiers "hauling away a creature" from the crash site.

Another voice then popped in: "UFO!" which led the pilot to laugh and add, "Yeah".

When pressed about the weather balloon explanation the FAA official was unable to confirm the presence of a weather balloon during the encounter the two pilots had in Albuquerque with an unidentified craft.

Lunsford said the FAA is closely working with several agencies, including military and civilian aircraft and even high-altitude weather balloons.

"We don't have any comment beyond what you hear", the statement read. The said UFO was reportedly seen hovering the sky in Mexico.
