Mexican Airliner Crew Observes UFO
Flight engineer Loe Gonzalez informed researcher Alfonso Salazar of the observation of an unidentified lying object during a domestic flight between the city of Villahermosa (Tabasco) and Mexico City, adding that the probable UFO irradiated a very powerful white light.
He indicated that the pilot, the first officer and himself were witnesses to the sighting from the cockpit of their Boeing 737-200, registration XA-MAF.
According to their account, the object flew alongside the aircraft, placing itself some 1500 meters to the left of the airliner.
The crew lost the UFO from sight when it flew at high speed along the vicinity of the Popocatepetl Volcano, entering a dense cloud bank.
The witness does not remember the exact date of the sighting, estimating that it took place between the months of September-October, 2006. He specified that it occurred shortly after taking off from Villahermosa, roughly around 6:50 p.m.
"It wasn't picked up on the Ticas radar, a situation indicating that it wasn't another airplane, aside from the impressive speed at which it peeled away from the airliner," explains Alfonso Salazar, adding that he has it on the best authority that some pilots are currently traveling with their own cameras or camcorders in order to pick up these unexplained aerial phenomena.
