Flash! UFO overflies airliner

An American Airlines passenger jet traveling from Cincinnati to Phoenix encountered an apparent UFO over northeastern New Mexico Sunday afternoon. 

The pilot on flight 2292 radioed around 1:00 p.m. CST and said that the unidentified object was flying right on top of them, according to a transmission recorded by Steve Douglass on his blog, Deep Black Horizon. American Airlines verified to Fox News that the transmission is from flight 2292.

“Do you have any targets up here? We just had something go right over the top of us,” the pilot said in the radio transmission. 

“I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing moving really fast. It went right over the top of us.”


Comment: Sure! Why not? The government should stop fooling around and release whatever information it really has. pl

    Yes, I know. The pilot said it was cylindrical.

    Cylindrical, like a ‘cruise missile’……those exist. Did Norad ever get their radars fixed after 9/11? Better question, did anyone fix Norad after 9/11, promotions aside.

      Norad wasn’t the problem on 9/11, I doubt they fixed anything and moreover that system is designed to look out, not in.

      At the altitude of this report is is illegal for an aircraft of any type to be there without informing and getting a clearance from Air Traffic Control, so the place to look is there. Normally Center radars are set to only reflect transponders to de-clutter the screen and everybody has to have one, aside from some very close to the ground ops away from airports. They have the capability to switch their display to “primary” returns, the raw-data reflections from anything reflecting the radar’s pulses. The moment a Center controller received a report of something flying around in his or her airspace that should have had a transponder but definitely doesn’t, rogue missile or whatever, that’s the switch they hit.

      They either saw something or did not, but we can’t expect an ATC controller to go public with it right off the bat, quite the opposite. They have, and need, security clearances to hold that job as they wind up seeing most everything in the sky, and moreover, how high and fast it is flying. What the USAF views as “trade secrets”. Yet here we have an airliner reporting a near miss with something, and ATC will reply with either they saw it on primary or did not to cover their own asses. Their screen displays are recorded and can be subpoenaed and they know an airline is owed some ‘splainin.

    I hope we get additional details. Was it truly a flat trajectory or at an angle (climbing or descending). How fast? The pilots obviously had enough view time to get the impression it was cylindrical, so that would give an upper speed limit. Did it disturb the aircraft’s controlled flight? As in, was there wake turbulence?

    While the archetypical shape is a disk, cylindrical is not an uncommon shape for UFOs. The Navy pilots saw and photographed a “tic tac” shaped UFO; basically a cylinder.

    The powers that be fear pandemonium would break out on earth if the truth of these things was revealed. The Davos crowd and church would suffer a severe reduction in rank. “Science” – as the term is applied today – would lose stature as well. All of those masters would suddenly be very wrong and very small; perhaps insignificant. So the truth will be tightly guarded for ever.

    Spacecraft debris?

    Btw, below is a great resource for UFO info.

    The purveyor of the site is full time dedicated to obtaining documentation via FOIA requests. There’s a drop down that leads to that repository (at the link). He also interviews people that claim to have been involved in UFO related activities with the government, etc. Tends to be higher quality material; not your typical conspiracy theory, far out story telling.

    Northeast New Mexico. Like maybe White Sands?
