A cargo plane reportedly encountered a mysterious object during a routine flight over Mexico.
So, this video is from March 2020 but it doesn’t make it any less compelling.
According to reports by the Daily Mail, the wonky incident involved two pilots who had been flying near Monterrey, Mexico when they stumbled upon a “pulsating orb”. The unidentified object dropped down from above and matched their altitude before flying alongside the airplane for around 30 minutes.
The pilots have not been named just yet but one is said to be a career pilot with 19 years of experience and the second was a veteran fighter pilot who had previously flown F-15’s. In other words, they’ve spend plenty of time in the sky so they were bound to run into something unexplainable like this.
Here’s the video:
According to the report by the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP), the plane had departed Queretaro International Airport and was on its way to Memphis, Tennessee when the sighting occurred.
NARCAP Executive Director Ted Roe assured the UK outlet that their account of the floating orb is credible — coming from two career pilots with nearly 30 years of experience combined between the US Air Force and private sectors.
“We have a database going back to 1916. It describes four basic types of UAP encounters and they are balls of light, spheres, cylinders and discs,” NARCAP Executive Director Ted Roe told Daily Mail.
The NARCAP report also described the pilots as “competent airmen, highly experienced with observing and identifying aircraft, and are capable of determining normal observations and incidents from unusual ones.” Their claims were also recognizes as being “very consistent with what pilots have been reporting for over 100 years.”
One of the officers flying the Boeing 767 “believed that it was a meteor and began to say so when it suddenly stopped near the same altitude as their aircraft.” Then the UFO “projected an illuminating beam of bright, white light on their aircraft, and appeared to take a collision heading.”
There was no collision, though. The “orb” took a turn and paced alongside them at a distance of about 1,000 to 2,000 feet away, going 575 mph at 37,000 feet. Perhaps it was recording a video of the FedEx airplane…
Another strange thing about the sighting is that it didn’t show up on either of the pilots’ radar.
“I thought it was a shooting star, but then it stopped,” a pilot can be heard telling his colleague during the almost five-minute video.
The morphing “teardrop” shape could be attributed to a plasma exterior, Roe also said, which could help “absorb” radar signal so that it does not reflect on the pilots’ screens. The use of plasma in aviation isn’t science fiction, as it’s already being studied and used by the US Air Force, including “proof-of-concept” experiments that showed plasma could be used to help wingless aircrafts “self-lift, hover and fly,” according to 2011 research cited by the Daily Mail.
Roe complained that the Federal Aviation Administration is ignoring reports of UFOs from reputable pilots and instead directing them to report the sighting to a “civilian” reporting center — meaning the phenomena is never officially recorded with the FAA.
