At 4:30 p.m on November 7, 2006, 12 airport employees reported seeing an unidentified craft hovering over gate C-17. They reported that the saucer was metallic and saucer shaped.
The first witness of the unidentified spinning object was a ramp employee who immediately reported to the crew of the United Airlines flight that was departing Chicago headed for Charlotte, N.C. He told them of the craft hovering above their plane. The other employees who witnessed the saucer included pilots, supervisors and mechanics.
According to the reports, the UFO was seen for about two minutes and then flew straight up in the air, leaving a clear open hole in the overcast sky that disappeared as mysteriously as the UFO. There are no known reports of photographed or video documentation.
General Description of the UFO Sighting:
Disc shaped saucer
Approx. 1800 feet above ground
Hovered 2 minutes
Accelerated straight up, leaving hole in clouds
The Investigation After United Airlines and the Federal aviation Administration refused to give any information on the sighting, a Chicago Tribune reporter filed a Freedom of Investigation request. This request forced the FAA to follow up with an investigation, which uncovered the tapes of the airline reports.
The Federal Aviation Administration claims that the sighting was caused by a weather phenomenon and no further investigation was required. According to the Chicago Tribune interviews, many witnesses were not happy that federal agencies refused do any further investigation about the very incredible sighting. United Airlines now denies the entire incident.
Media Coverage: This UFO case has gained national media coverage. Groups who reported on the UFO sighting included the Chicago Tribune, CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC.
Even the History Channel covered the story with a show called, “Aliens at The Airport” in 2009.
