MEXICO: AIRLINER CREW REPORTS UFO ENCOUNTER
Information provided by aviation expert Alfonso Salazar Mendoza, researcher and co-author of the book "Los Ovnis y la Aviación Mexicana"
During the first days of October 2005, the crew of a Boeing 737-200 (registration XA-MAA) witnessed the maneuvers of a plate-shaped unidentified flying object, described by the flight engineer as being highly luminous and similar to platinum.
The event occurred at 12:30 p.m. in the air corridor of the Mexican state of Oaxaca, at an altitude of 20,000 feet and under conditions of perfect visibility.
Witnesses describe the mysterious object as having emerged from a cloud and entering another, becoming visible during that period of time. They estimate that it was at a distance of 10 nautical miles from their aircraft.
The crew found the sighting truly remarkable, as in an earlier instance, another airliner belonging to the same company (Magnicharter) had reported a strange sphere that remained static over the World Trade Center air corridor in Mexico City.
In the opinion of researcher Alfonso Salazar, a large percentage of aviation professionals is convinced that unidentified flying objects indeed exist and in his next book, "Los Ovnis y la Aviación Mexicana II" (co-authored with Carlos Guzmán) he will reveal new cases of UFO and aircraft encounters.
