delayed departure of a commercial aircraft...
On April 25, 2013, at about 9:20 pm local time, and unknown object at low altitude flew
directly across the Rafaael Hernandez airport runway at Aquadilla, Puerto Rico, causing a
delayed departure of a commercial aircraft.
There was no squawking transponder dignal to alert the aircraft tower, nor was there any communication with the tower to prevent a dangerous situation with departing or arriving
Fortunately an airborne U.S. Customs and Border Protection aircraft captured the object on infrared video. An original copy of a thermal video was obtained from an official source on October 20, of the same year.
There was no classified information found in the report.
The 3-minute video detailed the flight of the unknown object that crossed twice into northwestern Puerto Rico from the Atlantic Ocean, and returned into the ocean into which it submerged.
