'Something just passed over us': 2 pilots report 'UFO' sighting over US

Mysterious UFO spotted above Texas

When UFOs first sprang into the public consciousness during the 1940s and 50s, numerous objects seen by pilots later turned out to be secret experimental aircraft.

Here's what we know: On February 24, a Learjet pilot flying for Phoenix Air with the tail number N71PG was cruising at 37,000 feet when something passed over his plane, moving fast.

As The Drive points out, the region in which the sightings took place is nestled in the midst of numerous military and air force facilities, and is an area "known for being highly active with military aircraft, and even possibly clandestine aircraft that remain under a cloak of secrecy". The recording of the mile-high chatter was submitted for investigation to the Federal Aviation Authority. The pilot rephrased the question, "if anything passes over us?"

"OK", the pilot responded.

Another person can then be heard saying "UFO" in a matter-of-fact manner.

"Yeah", confirmed the Learjet pilot.

Then American Airlines flight 1095 was alerted by ground control of this as a head's up and to ask the pilot of that flight if he saw anything.

"American 1095, uh, let me know if, uh, you anything pass over you here in the next, uh, 15 miles", the controller said.

He said: "Something just passed over us, like a, don't know what it was, but it was at least two, three thousand feet above us".

The control center reported it had no reading of another aircraft in the area above the jet, ABC News said, the pilot responded, "Okay, something did".

Weather balloons or airships aren't uncommon at those heights but the pilots said the shining light of the object made its actual identity unclear. H also described it as having a "big reflection".

The first transmission was from a pilot flying a Learjet for Phoenix Air, an global aircraft services company that transports passengers and cargo for corporate and military clients. Two other declassified videos in December showed another sighting by U.S. Navy pilots.

The controller was unable to verify that any other aircraft was in the area at the time of the reported sightings, according to a spokesperson for the FAA.

More than 50 years ago, a rancher named William Branzel discovered unusual debris in his pasture outside Roswell.

"Some balloons have reportedly made contact with aircraft in flight and in more than one case obstructed flight instrument sensors, causing unreliable air speed and thrust indications, and disrupted autopilot functions, endangering the aircraft", according to a 2016 article by the association.
