MCIA: UFO Reported During Descent Maneuvers
By Ana Luisa Cid

The crew of a Boeing 737-200 reported the presence of an unidentified flying object during descent maneuvers at Mexico City International Airport (MCIA).

The incident occurred last Monday, October 27, at 9:00 p.m.

According to flight mechanic Juan Jose Dominguez, the object was elliptical in shape, resembling an elongated

teardrop, which crossed the airliner from the left. He added that the UFO moved at low speed, estimating that its

frontal diameter was some 8 meters, roughly that of the airliner's cabin.

The airliner was flying the Los Cabos-Mexico City route. There was good visibility and clear skies.

Witnesses have requested that the airline's name be kept confidential. This report was provided by researcher Alfonso

Salazar Mendoza.
