Airliner captain Miguel Hernandez Aguirre informed researcher Alfonso Salazar about the sighting of an unidentified flying object in the vicinity of Atizapan Airport in the state of Mexico.

The witness was in the company of a flight instructor aboard a Cessna 150 aircraft.

They were forced to suspend their take-off maneuvers when they observed what they thought at first was another airplane about to come in for a landing at the airport in question.

This traffic, as Captain Hernandez described it, was descending as though coming in for a landing, but rather than doing so, descended into a canyon located on the northern end.

By this time they had been given the green light for take off. When passing over the highway, the instructor told him that the strange object was flying above the canyon. Subsequently, [the Cessna] rose into the air, conducting its normal flight operations, and they did not see the object again.

According to the description given, the object looked like a metal sphere; they cannot recall the date with any certainty, explaining that the event took place several weeks ago, perhaps in late February or early March 2007.

Captain Hernandez added that on another occasion, during a night flight, he witnessed three red lights flying over a hill adjacent to Atizapan Airport.
