On February 24th, two separate pilots of a Learjet operated by Phoenix Air and an American Airlines flight claim an unidentified flying object flew over the top of their planes while they were flying at over 30,000 feet. The FAA has released the recording of the radio broadcasts from the incident. (See the video below.)

Pilot 1: “Was anybody above us that passed us like 30 seconds ago?”                          FAA: “Negative.”

Given what the Learjet had just seen, the FAA in Albuquerque alerted American Airlines flight 1095 to keep an eye out as they flew towards San Diego. Less than one minute after that warning, flight 1095’s pilot radioed in that he’d just seen the UFO:

Pilot 2: “Yeah, something just passed over us. I don’t know what it was, but it was at least two-three thousand feet above us. Yeah, it passed right over the top of us.”

Neither of the pilots could make out whether or not the craft was hovering or flying but the American Airlines pilot can be heard saying “the UFO had a “big reflection”1 and doubted that what he’d seen was a Google balloon.

The FAA reported that they were “unable to verify that any other aircraft was in the area,”2however, perhaps not so coincidentally, the sighting was just 500 miles away from Roswell, New Mexico!

Regarding the incident, the FAA said:

“We don’t have any comment beyond what you hear. We have a close working relationship with a number of other agencies and safely handle military aircraft and civilian aircraft of all types in that area every day, including high-altitude weather balloons.”3

What do you think? Do you believe in UFO’s? Do you believe we are alone in the universe? Would it change your mind to know that video captured by U.S. Navy pilots has revealed that our government has a secret Pentagon program, with a budget of about $22 million, to investigate UFO sightings by U.S. military personnel? And that it’s apparently been going on for decades?
