UFO news USA Arizona Albuquerque alien space latest

A commercial pilot for American Airlines, who was flying a passenger jet February 24 over Arizona, reported to Albuquerque Center air traffic control between 3:30 and 4:15 p.m. local time that an object seen flying at 40,000 feet was unidentifiable and had a big reflection, according to a website called The Drive, a product of Time Inc.

The two aircraft encountered the flying object overhead not too far from Tucson and the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, according to Huffington Post.

A weird incident happened to pilots of a Phoenix Air Learjet 36, an American Airlines Flight 1095, an Airbus A321, and the Albuquerque Air Traffic Control last month.

And this point, the coolest man in the air traffic control office piped up to say: "A UFO!".

"Okay", the pilot said.

In an audio recording, the pilot says "I don't know what it was". He actually agreed with the Learjet pilot that the UFO was going in the opposite direction.

The American Airlines pilot responded with an incredulous tone, "If anything passes over us?"

"Affirmative. We had an aircraft in front of you at 37 [thousand feet] that reported something pass over him and we didn't have any radar targets, so just let me know if you see anything pass over you", air control told the American Airlines pilot.

"Something just passed over us", he said.

"Can you tell if it was in motion or just hovering", traffic control asked. "It wasn't an airplane but it was, the path was going in the opposite direction", reveals the pilot. Some believe it may have been one of the Google WiFi balloons, but the pilots are pretty sure that it wasn't.

To which the pilot replied: "Doubtful".

A month later and whatever the pilots reported seeing remains a UFO.

An FAA spokesperson said they frequently work with agencies in that area and "safely handle" aircraft of all types, including military, civilian and high-altitude weather balloons.

In a statement to KOB 4, the NBC station in Albuquerque, the FAA said, "We don't have any comment beyond what you hear".

Although there has been no confirmation - or even serious suggestions - that the recent incident was related to an unidentified flying object (at least, not the kind portrayed in Hollywood), the US government has investigated sightings over the years.
