An American Airline pilot saw something strange flying over the plane when he was flying toward Sky Harbor Airport on Feb. 21. A Phoenix-area UFO expert intervened to suggest what she thinks it could have been.
Flight 2292 left Cincinnati at 11:22 a.m. and arrived in Phoenix at 1:42 p.m., but somewhere over New Mexico, the pilot saw something strange and wanted to know what it was. A UFO? Maybe.
What he saw was recorded by the blogger. He said, "Do you guys have any targets up here? we had something go right over the top of us."
He radioed in at 1 p.m. Central Time and reported that he sees an object flying right on top of them. He said, "Hate to say it, but it looked like a long cylindrical object going fast like a cruise missile. It went right over the top of us."
Dr. Lynne Kitei with The Phoenix Lights Network said, "The fact that it was a pilot, and they were so excited about it tells you something. Because these are trained observers."
She knows some things about UFOs as she’s one of the most outspoken voices on the Phoenix Lights Phenomenon.
She clicked pictures of cylindrical objects in the East Valley herself 20 years ago, somewhat similar to what the pilot saw. Kitei said, "These pictures sound similar to the one the pilot was talking about. I still don’t know what they are. Most things can be explained, but not everything."
An American Airlines statement confirmed that the audio recording is from its flight 2292 on Feb. 21. But no information on what it was, has been revealed so far.
