Pilots of an American Airlines jet flying over New Mexico say they saw something fly directly over them that they cannot explain.
The strange encounter happened over the northeast corner of New Mexico west of Clayton, New Mexico as the jet was cruising at 36,000 feet traveling around 460 mph.
“Do you have any targets up here,” the pilot asked before reporting that “we just had something go right over the top of us.” “I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing moving really fast right over the top of us.”
A response to the pilot’s inquiry was, unfortunately, not picked up, but flight tracking websites indicate that there were no aircraft in the vicinity of the plane which could account for the odd sighting.
Meanwhile, the FAA has released a short statement, which reads: A pilot reported seeing an object over New Mexico shortly after noon local time on Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021. FAA air traffic controllers did not see any object in the area on their radarscopes.
It is clear, something is not right here.
