Learjet And Airbus Had Strange Encounter With Mysterious Craft Over Arizona

Learjet And Airbus Had Strange Encounter With Mysterious Craft Over Arizona 98
CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA – AUGUST 20 (SOUTH AFRICA OUT): A view from the cockpit of a Mango Airlines Boeing 737-800 with captain Lourens Sadler and co-pilot, first officer Mohau Tlhapuletsa during a flight from Cape Town to Lanseria and back on August 20, 2015 in South Africa. The low cost airline Mango is expanding its Lanseria operations with a new route to Durban and an additional early morning flight from Cape Town to Lanseria. The airline said in a press release that the new route and schedule would come into effective on 15 October, with flights on sale from across all distribution channels. The new Lanseria Durban route will see Mango operate an initial twice-daily service in the mornings and late afternoons while a fourth early morning frequency between Cape Town and Lanseria has been added.

The FAA recording between air traffic controllers and the aircraft involved in the incident is bizarre to say the least.

A series of strange events occurred high up in the flightlevels above Southern Arizona on February 24th, 2018. Between roughly 3:30pm and 4:15pm local time, N71PG, a Learjet 36 belonging to Phoenix Air, and American Airlines Flight 1095, an Airbus A321, had independent close encounters with a strange craft flying at around 40,000 feet.

The planes were flying east at about 37,000 feet between the Sonoran Desert National Monument and the New Mexico border when the incident took place.
The War Zone has obtained an official audio recording directly from the FAA of Albuquerque Center air traffic control talking to the pilots and other aircraft in their vicinity as the bizarre incident unfolded. Here it is in its unedited form:

The initial report came from N71PG, the Learjet, asking Albuquerque Center if traffic had passed above them. The controller replied “negative,” meaning that there was no traffic to his knowledge that would account for such an observation. The Learjet pilot replies defiantly, “somethin’ did.” Another pilot chimed in on the frequency saying “a UFO” and the Learjet pilot replied “yeah.”

A few minutes later, the controller asks American 1095 to let him know if they see anything “pass over you here in the next 15 miles.” The American Airlines pilot replies in a puzzled manner “if anything passes over us!?” The controller responds “affirmative, we had an aircraft in front of you at 37 [thousand feet] that reported something pass over him and we didn’t have any [radar] targets, so just let me know if you see anything pass over you.”

At this point things get even more interesting as the Learjet pilot chimes in saying “I don’t know what it was, it wasn’t an airplane but it was–the path was going in the opposite direction.”

A minute later American 1095 calls back in saying “yeah something just passed over us, like a–I don’t know what it was, but it was at least two-three thousand feet above us. Yeah it passed right over the top of us.” The controller calmly acknowledges the pilot’s report and says nothing else.

Then a moment later the controller asks American 1095 “Could you tell if it was in motion or if it was just hovering?” The Airbus pilot quickly replies “I couldn’t make it out if it was a balloon or whatnot, but it was just really beaming light or had a big reflection and several thousand feet above us going the opposite direction.” The controller confirms the report by just saying “roger.”

Shortly after that communiqué a pilot asks on the frequency “was it a Google balloon?” To which AAL1095 responds in a troubled tone “Doubtful.” Another voice then comes on the frequency saying “a UFO!”

The whole event, at least as we understand it at this point in time, lasted about six minutes.

According to an FAA representative who was incredibly helpful and forthcoming during our preliminary investigation, he didn’t think the incident was written up and noted that the supervisor at Albuquerque Center didn’t even know about it when queried. That does seem somewhat odd considering some sort of unidentified craft was flying along highly trafficked air routes at jet altitudes that didn’t have a transponder, did not appear on radar, and was not communicating with air traffic control.

Top image is N71PG’s location at 3:47pm local time, the bottom is AAL1095’s location at that same time to give you an idea of the spacing between the two aircraft as they flew east over Arizona.

The incident comes after a bizarre and remarkably well documented series of encounters with a mystery aircraft flying at a similar altitude occurred over Oregon and Northern California last October—a story which The War Zone broke and has just posted an in-depth update on. In that prolonged event, USAF F-15s were scrambled to investigate and the response from both the FAA and the military was extensive on multiple levels.

We do have to note that the region in which this incident took place is very well known for being highly active with military aircraft, and even possibly clandestine aircraft that remain under a cloak of secrecy. To the east is White Sands Missile Range and Holloman Air Force base. To the south is Tucson, where throngs of military aircraft operate out of two major bases—Davis Monthan AFB and Tucson International Airport. To the North is Phoenix and Luke AFB which is a major training installation for F-35 and F-16 pilots. To the west are MCAS Yuma and the elaborate range complexes that surround it.

To the south is also Fort Huachuca, which is the home of multiple unmanned aircraft units, including one belonging to the Army Special Operations Command (MQ-1Cs Gray Eagles and who knows what else) and the U.S. Border Patrol (RQ-9 Reapers), not to mention it is also a major training station for the Army’s RQ-7 Shadow drone operators. Then there is all the transient military traffic that visits the area for training and exercises. Suffice to say it is a hotspot of military aviation and is thought to also be somewhat of a corridor for clandestine aircraft as well.

But none of that directly explains why an aircraft would be traveling totally unannounced to air traffic control in broad daylight right over the tops of airliners. And no story of a rogue drone or a military aircraft with malfunctioning communications surfaced with the FAA after the incident, at least to our knowledge.

It is also worth mentioning, although it will surely draw the ire of some, that weather balloons do get launched into the upper atmosphere regularly all over the United States, and the regulations surrounding their operations don’t necessarily mandate the launching party contact the FAA or provide a radar reflector or a transponder.

You can read about these regulations here, and they will probably be surprising to many as a six pound radiosonde, camera, or other device slamming onto a jet’s windscreen at 500mph seems like a threat to public safety. But the fact is these scientific devices are launched on a daily basis around the globe without incident.

That doesn’t mean they can’t come close to airliners. There are plenty of videos on the internet of them filming jets buzzing by that are pretty unsettling (make sure to turn the sound on for the video below).

Weather balloon activity over Arizona has a uniquely interesting history as of late. One guy found what appears to be a radiosonde of Russian origin while hunting in the Sawtooth Mountains, which are located right around where the February 24th incident took place. The mysterious find is detailed in this article. During the summer when the notorious heat hits the Arizona desert, weather balloon activity usually increases dramatically. There are also other advanced balloon developments in the area as well, but they aren’t likely to go unreported or untracked.

But even with these possibilities in mind, the pilots don’t sound that convinced that the object they saw was simply a balloon passing by, and there seems to have been some sort of combined closure rate involved as well.

We have filed a Freedom Of Information Act request for any additional information related to this mysterious event and will report back to you when we have more details to share. In the meantime it will remain yet another mysterious aerial event in the skies over the American Southwest.

Another TR-3B? Huge triangular UFO flew over New York

Another TR-3B? Huge triangular UFO flew over New York 105

A resident of Bronx, New York, on January 16, 2021, saw three UFOs above the houses in his area, moving synchronously in the form of a huge triangle. The brightly shining points were very clearly visible in the night sky.

The man managed to capture a triangle slowly floating in the sky on video (see below) and posted it on his YouTube channel.

Since he was a very modest blogger who had only a few subscribers, his video went unnoticed for several days by UFO lovers, until finally it was re-posted on social networks, and from there it got to news sites.

Huge triangular UFO flew over New York

The video shows how the author of the video is very surprised by what is happening, he looks up into the sky and says:

“They fly nearby and look like stars. It’s a triangle and I don’t know what it is.”

Then he tried to ask someone from the passers-by about whether they knew that it was in the sky, but they could not answer either.

On social networks, this video caused a lot of comments from curious people who offered their versions of what they saw. From the fact that someone has programmed the drones to move in the form of a triangle, to the fact that they are actually Chinese lanterns.

The lantern version was quickly criticized, as the lights move at such a high altitude that Chinese lanterns could not continue to burn so brightly.

The drone version also drew a lot of criticism, because in order to launch several large drones over residential buildings in New York, you need to obtain special permission and it is not so easy.

The most popular was the theory that what he saw was a secret American reconnaissance aircraft TR-3B, about which there have been many rumors for a long time. Allegedly, it was developed on the basis of an alien ship that fell in Roswell, it can move silently and is practically invisible to radars.

Indians and aliens – “I was told that there are four aggressive species in the universe, and humans are one of them.”

Indians and aliens - "I was told that there are four aggressive species in the universe, and humans are one of them." 106

Dr. Ardi Sixkiller Clarke, professor emeritus at Montana State University, who is a native of the Cherokee tribe, has studied Indian stories about the “Star People” and collected stories of encounters between aliens and native Indians over the years.

Here is one of the stories she recorded, which she recorded from the words of a female elder named Tali:

I have seen star creatures all my life. The first time I was about 8 years old. I picked berries by the river. I watched the ship descend and land across the river. I crossed the river, stepping carefully over the rocks so as not to get my feet wet. I was curious; I’ve never seen anything like it.

As I approached, the door opened and I went inside. I remember that the star beings greeted me. There were two women. One combed my hair and said that I was beautiful. After that, I often met with them.

Sometimes I brought them flowers, sometimes stones. My grandmother told me that stones have a soul, and I tried to explain it to them. I don’t think they understood. But they taught me to heal with my hands. Star doctors taught me how to treat diseases with my hands. They taught my grandmother how to heal.

When my grandmother died, the star beings were very saddened and I was tasked with continuing her work and learning about herbs and healing people naturally and metaphysically.

They are light, tall and thin. They are much smarter than us, but they are interested in our development. They travel the stars and learn from others throughout the star system. They collect information about the aging process of earthlings. They are trying to understand why we die so young.

Star people live much longer than we do. The normal age for them is 1000 Earth years. They do not have such diseases as we do. Their civilization does not consume alcohol and tobacco.

They choose who they will be, their job and stay on it forever. They become experts in their field, which leads to many discoveries that improve their lives. Star physicians visit Earth constantly. They mostly watch, but all over the world there are “helpers” who serve them. Both my grandmother and I were their assistants.

Star people call themselves observers.

They weren’t cruel. I was told that there are four aggressive species in our universe. People are one of them.”

Dr. Clarke ends the story like this:

“For the next five plus years, I frequently visited the reservation to meet Tali. She remained strong and mobile until her death at 95. On the day of her funeral, several people saw a UFO appear and hover in the sky. I was one of them.”

Observers

In the stories of many people who have come into contact with representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations, there are references to the fact that they are just observers. It seems that some of these creatures are just curious observers of planet Earth, collecting data, as if some of them are carrying out scientific missions to bring information about other planets and civilizations back to their planet.

We are not alone in the universe. Perhaps one day we ourselves will become aliens for someone exploring another planet.

Can we change?

As for the fact that humans are one of the most violent species in the universe … We are empathetic beings with tremendous potential for good. We really can, but we do not change, and if you were an alien watching what is happening on our planet, you would probably be intimidated by how aggressive and cruel we are …

It is a pity that we are in a group of worlds characterized as aggressive, but I really hope that we will change. People can change, but only by standing at the edge of the abyss and realizing that if they do not change, human civilization will simply disappear. We are already on the edge of the abyss. We have actually destroyed the house we live in and the name of this house is Earth.

Humanity has only two ways – to change or die out.

The CIA has laid out all its information about UFO’s in the public domain

The CIA has laid out all its information about UFO's in the public domain 107

The Black Vault, which publishes declassified data, has posted on its website an impressive archive of CIA documents related to UFOs. The founder of the project, John Greenwald, says that he received all the documents by official means from the hands of the organization’s employees.

And suddenly, the CIA declassified its entire database of UFOs. That is, the secret service has documents from the 1980s and everything shows that conspiracy theories are becoming a reality. Already, the “Black Vault” website contains several relevant documents, which can be downloaded by anyone.

The term “Unidentified Flying Objects” is commonly used in the documents.
Some of these may be due to light reflections or errors in the pilot instruments. However, some are objects of inquiry by the Pentagon.

The CIA claims that they have nothing else, but it is not possible to verify this statement.

It was possible to obtain information thanks to the Law on Freedom of Information, and the process itself was launched at the turn of the 70-80s of last century. 

The representatives of the special services had to admit that the public ultimately has the right to find out the secrets of the government, but the process of transferring information is not really regulated. According to Greenwald, he spent 25 years in endless meetings, disputes and bickering with the CIA, until he finally got what he wanted.

But not everything is so simple – the researcher was handed a box with about 10,000 printed sheets of very low quality. He had to scan them manually, some things could not be disassembled at all, many documents were scattered. 

“Starting about 20 years ago, I struggled for years to get additional UFO records from the CIA,” Greenwald said in an email to Motherboard. “It was like pulling teeth! I went around with them to try and do it, finally achieving it. I received a large box with a couple of thousand pages, and I had to scan them one page at a time.”

The CIA used the rather outdated .tif format, so software processing is also difficult. Ufologists don’t have to talk about a gift, it’s more like trying to get rid of garbage in order to get rid of annoying researchers. 

“Researchers and curious minds alike prefer simplicity and accessibility when they look at such data dumps,” says Greenwald. “The CIA made it INCREDIBLY difficult to use its archives in a sensible way. They offer a very outdated format (multi-page .tif) and offer largely unusable text output, which I think they intend to use as a “search” tool. In my opinion, this outdated format makes it very difficult for people to view documents and use them for any research purposes.”

However, there are also enough mysterious stories there.

Thousands of files were uploaded in the first 24 hours after release, Greenwald said. Some documents are crisp and clear, while others are almost impossible to decipher.

According to Greenwald, one of the most interesting documents in this article relates to the fact that the Assistant Deputy Director of Science and Technology passed on some serious information about UFOs to the CIA back in the 1970s. After that, it became extremely difficult to obtain information from the government about extraterrestrial phenomena.

The release of the documents comes six months before the UFO report to be released by the US government. This means that the revelations are not made at this time randomly.

In particular, intelligence experts have 180 days to formulate an official report on signs or secret aircraft near US military bases, which will be released later.

The CIA has laid out all its information about UFO's in the public domain 108

Greenwald posts the files in the Black Vault, as he claims that publishing the files is a matter of public interest and notes that citizens have a right to know.

“The public has a right to know!” Greenwald says. “When I started my research almost 25 years ago, at the age of 15, I knew there was something about this topic. Not from viral online pranks, not from secret meetings with insiders that no one has ever seen. No, this is all UFO evidence straight from the CIA and NSA. I feel like I’ve almost achieved what I set out to do – give people easy access to important material so that people can form their own opinion about what’s going on.”

The aliens are already among us.
