Mexico: Airliner Crew Reports a UFO

Aviation technician Alfonso Salazar reports that on Saturday, June 2009 at 16:10 hours, the crew of a Fokker 110 (Click de Mexicana) reported "spherical traffic" which, according to eyewitnesses was a shining sphere resembling burnished platinum and reflecting the sun's rays."

The Fokker 100 was flying at an approximate altitude of 10,000 meters on the Juliet 21 air corridor. The unknown object, measuring some 10 meters in diameter), crossed the airliner's path and was seen at it's 8 o'clock position (lower left).

This sighting was recorded over the southern area of Cerro de la Estrella (to the east of Mexico City). Weather conditions were clear, sunny and cloudless. The crew calculated that the UFO was at an altitude of 8000 meters.

For some time now, encounters between these flying objects and airliners have increased, as they arrive or take off from the Mexican capital's airport.
