Mexico: A UFO/Airliner Close Encounter?
Mexico: Letter from Aviation Mechanic Alfonso Salazar
Contributing editor Prof. Ana Luisa Cid shares with us a message sent to her by aviation mechanic Alfonso Salazar, whose reports on interactions between airliners and unidentified aerial objects have become known worldwide.
"Dear Ana Luisa - My best regards to you. This photograph was taken by Fausto Abaroa on May 21st as an Aeromexico 737-800 approached Mexico City along the San Mateo air corridor. The same image shows a black flying object that dangerously escorts the passenger jet.
"It should be noted that the allowed distance between one airliner and another is one mile (1209 meters) as per SVRM Regulations for passenger aircraft navigation in Mexican airspace.
"This incident can be added to another report made known at the Toluca Airport, which describes the sighting of an object as a white arrowhead, passing over the Nevado de Toluca volcano, at an altitude of approximately 10,000 meters, and triple the speed of an executive jet. We learned of this sighting because it was reported by deck personnel.
"This event also took place on May 21 around 11:00 a.m., as a Beechcraft executive bimotor flew over the area."
