UFO Sighting at Chicago O'Hare Airport (Laughed off by Feds as usual)
Just another day for the FAA, who has decided not to investigate a multiple witness UFO sightings. Laughing it off with corny jokes in usual fashion and the media playing right along asking no questions, just buying it.
The UFO sighting took place on November 7, 2006 at O'Hare Airport in Chicago Illinois by several witnesses including pilots and supervisors that said they saw an object hovering over a terminal and then shooting up into the clouds.
The FAA is blowing it off as weather. They can get away with such a lame explanation because we have been conditioned to believe that only mentally disturbed people see UFO's. Mentally disturbed pilots I suppose. The ones that are staring at skies and weather day after day. Flying huge aircraft with hundreds of people on board.
Below you will find the story from two large "reputable" news sources. (It's the same story) Their stories are so small and insignificant that I have quoted the entire thing. Really lame joke at the end and all.
Federal officials say it was probably just some weird weather phenomenon, but a group of United Airlines employees swear they saw a mysterious, saucer-shaped craft hovering over O'Hare Airport in November.
The workers, some of them pilots, said the object didn't have lights and hovered over an airport terminal before shooting up through the clouds, according to a report in Monday's Chicago Tribune.
The Federal Aviation Administration acknowledged that a United supervisor had called the control tower at O'Hare, asking if anyone had spotted a spinning disc-shaped object. But the controllers didn't see anything, and a preliminary check of radar found nothing out of the ordinary, FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory said.
"Our theory on this is that it was a weather phenomenon," Cory said. "That night was a perfect atmospheric condition in terms of low (cloud) ceiling and a lot of airport lights. When the lights shine up into the clouds, sometimes you can see funny things."
The FAA is not investigating, Cory said.
United spokeswoman Megan McCarthy said company officials don't recall discussing any such incident from November 7.
At least one O'Hare controller, union official Craig Burzych, was amused by it all.
"To fly 7 million light years to O'Hare and then have to turn around and go home because your gate was occupied is simply unacceptable," he said.
