Airline pilot encounters cylindrical UFO

The pilot of an American Airlines flight reported an unidentified object over New Mexico on Sunday.
The passenger jet, which had been flying from Cincinnati to Phoenix, encountered what the pilot described as a "long cylindrical object" at around 1:00 p.m. CST.

"Do you have any targets up here ?" the pilot said in a radio transmission at the time.

"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. It went right over the top of us."
American Airlines later confirmed to Fox News that the encounter had been genuine, but neglected to speculate over what the object could have been or whether it was extraterrestrial in origin.

"Following a debrief with our Flight Crew and additional information received, we can confirm this radio transmission was from American Airlines Flight 2292 on Feb. 21," said a spokesperson.

"For any additional questions on this, we encourage you to reach out to the FBI."

So far however the FBI has not provided it's own take on what happened.

According to public affairs chief Scott Stearns of New Mexico's White Sands Missile Range, no tests had been conducted on that date and the plane had been 400 miles from the base.

"We have no idea what it could have been or if anything similar has been sighted in that area before," he said.

And yet it is suggested that this is what happens. So worthy of a mention but, I†really don't care either way.

Well that's my point. Neither of us were there and there is no evidence so all you or I have is assumptions.†

Take a guess why the faa†would tell airliners not to.

Why would we guess about something that isn't happening?† My son in law is a pilot with one of the largest airline companies in the world, and he happily tells us all the good and bad about everything.† They DON'T tell airliners to do that, they are just being slack in not implementing it - it's an expensive mod, and there is some resistance.† From the pilots.........† Why do you think that is, Nob..?

Itís unfortunately a common misconception of the believers community that present day pilots risk their jobs by reporting anything which could be a potential risk to safe aircraft operation.

More pilots are going to see more ufos like that one. Crafts with no wings or propellers or any visible means of propulsion

Well yes, there is no doubt that†there are going to be more unconventional aircraft in the sky with technological advancements. It would be hard to spot the propulsion system of this one if you passed by quickly: *snip* †

Well itís not against forum rules, and YouTube has the apparent necessary checks in place. So, all G!
