(CNN/Meredith)– 2 commercial pilots flying over the Arizona desert claim they saw an unidentified flying object pass overhead, according to a radio broadcast launched by the Federal Aviation Administration.
A Learjet pilot and an American Airlines pilot saw the item on February 24 and radioed the regional air traffic controller in Albuquerque.
“Was any person, uh, above us that passed us like 30 seconds ago?” the Learjet pilot stated in the brief exchange.
“Negative,” the air traffic controller replied.
“Okay,” the pilot stated. “Something did.”
“A UFO!” somebody rapidly responded.
“Yeah,” the pilot responded again with a chuckle.A second sighting
Minutes later on, the FAA controller informed an American Airlines that was flying in the area, according to the recording launched by the FAA.
“American 1095, uh, let me understand if, uh, you anything pass over you here in the next, uh, 15 miles,” an air traffic controller stated.
“Let you understand if anything passes over?” the pilot reacted.
“American 1095, affirmative,” the controller said. “We had an airplane in front of you that reported something pass over him and, uh, we didn’t have any targets. So simply, uh, let me know if you see anything pass over you.”
“Alright,” the pilot said.
Shortly, the pilot radioed traffic control likewise reporting the mystical item.
“It’s American 1095. Yeah, something just passed over us,” the pilot said. “I have no idea what it was, but a minimum of two-three thousand feet above us. Yeah, it passed right over the top of us.”
American Airlines referred all questions to the FAA.
It’s uncertain whether the item found by the pilots was a UFO. A FAA spokesperson recommended the object wasn’t always something out of this world.
“We have a close working relationship with a number of other agencies and securely manage military airplane and civilian airplane of all enters that area every day, including high-altitude weather balloons,” the FAA spokesperson said.
The controller was unable to confirm that other airplane remained in the area at the time, the FAA said.Was it a weather balloon?
A pilot said he did not think the object could be a weather condition balloon.
When the air controller asked more about the things, the American Airlines pilot stated he wasn’t sure “whether it was a balloon or whatnot.”
He only explained it as having “a huge reflection,” and “taking a trip numerous thousand feet above us, going the opposite instructions.”
The weird encounter occurred not far from Roswell, New Mexico– a town that ended up being associated with extraterrestrial activity in 1947 after reports that a flying object crash-landed in a field.
Authorities said it was a weather condition balloon however that hasn’t stopped lots of Americans from coming up with their own out-of-this-world theories.
