Two pilots report seeing UFO in southern Arizona skies

Two pilots report seeing UFO in southern Arizona skies

Last month, the pilots of two separate aircraft reported seeing the same UFO flying over southern Arizona.

The tapes were reportedly obtained by "The Warzone Wire" from the FAA Albuquerque Center and were first shared by The Drive.

In newly released audio footage, the pilots and air traffic controllers can be heard discussing the baffling situation in almost unbelievable detail.

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

According to radio transmissions between the befuddled pilots and air traffic controllers (which you can listen to in full, thanks to an FAA recording recently released to the Phoenix New Times), the sighting occurred around 3:30 p.m. local time on February 24, somewhere over the Sonoran Desert near Phoenix.

He told controllers: "Don't know what it was".

When the controller tells him there wasn't, he answers: 'It wasn't an airplane but it was...the path was going in the opposite direction'.

The report from the Learjet pilot prompted FAA air controllers to alert the pilot of American Airlines Flight 1095 to be on the lookout for an aircraft.

"It's a UFO", another pilot chimes in.

"Was anybody, uh, above us that passed us like 30 seconds ago?" the Learjet pilot said in the brief exchange.

'Yeah it passed right over the top of us'.

The American Airlines pilot later radios to the controller again, asking if the unidentified object was a "Google balloon".

"OK. Something did", the pilot replies.

"UFO", the other pilot was heard saying.

The sightings have come light at about the same time as several military pilots reporting what they believed to be UFOs, ABC News reported.

On 8 July, Roswell Army Air Field revealed they had found a "flying disc", which had crashed in the New Mexico desert.

Two Pilots from two different aeroplanes witnessed a UFO flying over Arizona last month.

Once the air traffic controller received the report, it contacted an American Airlines pilot nearby.

When pressed about the weather balloon explanation the FAA official was unable to confirm the presence of a weather balloon during the encounter the two pilots had in Albuquerque with an unidentified craft.

Lunsford also said the agency has a "close working relationship" with all other military and civilian aircraft operating in that area every day "including high-altitude weather balloons". Roswell is home to the most famous UFO stories in US history as a flying saucer allegedly crashed in the desert there in 1947.
