Airliner Crew Records UFO on Cellphone
**A report from Ana Luisa Cid**
On January 28, 2007, flight mechanic Enrique Morales Piedras recorded—on his cellphone-- a sperical object crossing the skies over the region of the Popocatépetl e Iztaccíhuatl volcanoes.
According to a report given to researcher Alfonso Salazar, he was aboard a Boeing 737-200, registration XA-MAC, flying between Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta.
The witness says the flight took off at 9:20 a.m. toward Texcoco on runway 5 right. The airliner began to rise and at an elevation of 10,000 feet followed the Toluca VOR. At this time Mr. Morales Piedras began to make a recording with his cellphone, since the view was inspiring, the volcanoes were covered in snow and the weather was completely clear and sunny.
As he recorded the scenery, the airliner’s captan said: “Look, what’s that over there?” pointing straight ahead. It was at that moment that he recorded – in the eleven o’clock position – a spherical, seemingly metallic object at an estimated distance of 200 meters. The time was 9:23 a.m.
“What is most relevant of this evidence upon reviewing the video, aside from seeing the sphere, the audio picks up the TICAS alarm, which repeats: “Traffic, traffic...” meaning that the on-board collision avoidance radar picked up the flying object, which then moved to the left and sped away quickly,” concluded researcher Alfonso Salazar, adding that as soon as he has the witness’s authorization, he will release the recording.
