Two commercial pilots saw an unidentified object fly over them in airspace above Arizona last month, according to Federal Aviation Administration radio exchanges released.
“Was anybody, uh, above us that passed us like 30 seconds ago?” a Learjet pilot asked the regional air traffic controller in Albuquerque.
“Negative,” air traffic control replied.
“Okay,” the pilot said. “Something did.”
“A UFO!” someone says.
“Yeah,” the pilot responds, laughing.
A few minutes later, the air traffic controller radioed an American Airlines plane in the same area.
“American 1095, uh, let me know if, uh, anything pass over you here in the next, uh, 15 miles,” the FAA controller said.
“Let you know if anything passes over?” the pilot asked.
“Affirmative,” the controller responded
Shortly after, the American Airlines pilot reported sighting the UFO as well.
This incident happened just 500 miles away from Roswell, N.M., a notorious location for UFO activity dating back to 1947, when a flying saucer allegedly crashed there in the desert.
Just three months before the sighting in Arizona, it was revealed that U.S. Defense Department has been investigating UFOs for years, and videos of Navy pilots sighting mysterious aircraft was released.
