Pair of airline pilots report same UFO sighting over Arizona

Two different airline pilots claim they saw the same UFO while flying over Arizona last month.

Both pilots reported the bizarre sighting to the Federal Aviation Administration, which released a radio broadcast of the incident, the Phoenix New Times reported.

“Was anybody above us that passed us like 30 seconds ago?” a Phoenix Air Group pilot asked an air traffic controller at around 3:30 p.m. on Feb. 24.

“Negative,” an Albuquerque air traffic controller said.

“Ok,” the Learjet’s pilot said. “Something did.”

An American Airlines pilot later said he was passed by the same foreign object.

“Yeah, something just passed over us,” the pilot of American Airlines flight 1095 reported. “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.”

The pilot said the object had a “big reflection” and was flying “in the opposite direction.”

The FAA — which could not confirm the presence of any other aircraft in the area — was also mystified by the event.

“Other than the brief conversation between two aircraft, the controller was unable to verify that any other aircraft was in the area,” FAA spokesperson Lynn Lunsford told the Phoenix New Times. “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,” Lunsford said.

At least one of the pilots confirmed the sighting was not of a weather balloon.
