Mexico: A Report from Mexico City Airport (MCIA)
By Alfonso Salazar Mendoza and Ana Luisa Cid
On December 24, 2009 at 15:54 hours, the crew of an Aeromexico Boeing 737-800 reported that it had come across spherical traffic in the vicinity of Cerro de la Estrella (east of Mexico City). The aircraft had recently taken off from the airport.
I heard the conversation myself. I heard when they asked if there was other traffic on the screen on air corridor 21.
The airliner was at an altitude fo 10,000 meters under excellent visibility conditions.
This report can be added to other recent ones involving UFO sightings over the Mexican capital city, such as the one that occurred on Thursday, December 17 when platform personnel saw two spherical objects flying over Benito Juarez Airport.
This occurred at 5:30 a.m. in a south-to-north direction, at an altitude of approximately one kilometer.
Another important reference we can provide is that during the thunderstorm in October 2009, plaform staff managed to photograph a UFO. It is thus possible to contribute more information of the phenomenon as it occurs in Mexico, where in many instances the witnesses are qualified airliner pilots.
