MEXICO: UFO PHOTOGRAPHED OVER RUNWAY 5, MCIA -- By Ana Luisa Cid
According to a report from researcher Alfonso Salazar, an unidentified flying object was reported on October 16, 2008 at 16:15 hours over Runway 5 Left of Mexico City International Airport, very close to the El Penon hill.
"It was disk-shaped and very shiny, reflecting the sun's light...the unknown object was flying over the runway just as a Fokker 100 belonging to Mexico's Click Airlines was taking off," according to witnesses.
Estimates place the UFO at an altitude of 150 meters, highlighting the fact that it moved up and down with irregular movements.
A few minutes later, it headed toward the southern area of the airport in question. The weather was sunny with a few clouds. Witnesses include Daniel Hernandez, Jose Camacho Cuevas, Jose Alvarez and researcher Alfonso Salazar Mendoza himself, all of them aircraft mechanics.
"Jose Camacho took out his camera, but there was no chance to record it," explains Alfonso Salazar.
