Recording released of the moment pilots spot 'UFO' above them

Recording released of the moment pilots spot 'UFO' above them

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.

"Was anyone above us that passed us, like, 30 seconds ago?" he asked Albuquerque Air Route Traffic Control Centre. The air traffic controller responded with a "negative", to which the pilot answered,"Okay, something did".

Another voice interjected and said: "UFO".

"It's a UFO!" someone responded.

"It's doubtful", replied the pilot.

Minutes later, the pilot replies, 'Yeah something just passed over us, like a...

"American 1095, affirmative", the controller said.

"American 1095. We had an aircraft in front of you that reported something pass over him and, uh, we didn't have any targets".

He asks the pilot: "Let me know if you see anything pass over you here in the next 15 miles".

A few minutes later, the air traffic controller radioed an plane in the same area.

He was then asked: "Could you tell if it was in motion or if it was just hovering?"

"Yeah, something just passed over us", the pilot said. "It passed right over the top of us", the pilot confirmed. Later officials were still thinking about the occurrence and warned the American Airlines flight.

American Airlines referred all questions to the FAA.

The Arizona reports are the latest in a series of UFO encounters that have come to light.

The controller was unable to verify that any other aircraft was in the area at the time, according to the FAA, but a spokesperson clarified that this doesn't necessarily mean the object was otherworldly. Moreover, the FAA has often offered explanations like weather balloons and other monitoring craft for its explanations of these events but these accounts often seem to fall short of explaining what it is exactly pilots encountered.

"I couldn't make it out if it was a balloon or whatnot", the pilot said.

In order to try to ascertain if the UFO was spotted by others, The Air traffic controllers asked the pilot of a nearby American Airlines jet to keep an eye out for the UFO - and sure enough, he also spotted the unusual object - meaning that it wasn't a figment of anyone's imagination.

Two airline pilots recently reported UFO sightings while flying over the state of Arizona.

Authorities said it was a weather balloon but that hasn't stopped plenty of Americans from coming up with their own out-of-this-world theories.
