Mexico: Sightings Reported By Airline Personnel
**Reports from researcher Alfonso Salazar Mendoza**

On February 13, 2007 at 9:25 a.m., a UFO was reported over
Mexico City International Airport, flying slowly from north to
south. Its aspect was metallic and its overall shape spherical,
reflecting the sun's rays with silvery flashes, according to the
descriptions given by aviation technicians who witnessed the
sightings. They estimated that the object flew at approximately
50,000 feet (15,000 meters) and the observation took place near
air terminal #2 of said airport. Among the witnesses was
researcher Alfonso Salazar, who added the probable UFO was lost
from sight as it headed toward the sun, from his perspective.

The crew of a Mexican Navy helicopter on its way to the Mexican
capital advised an air traffic controller that a metallic
spherical object had crossed its path in the vicinity of
Chiquihuite Hill. The sighting was confirmed by the MCIA Control
Tower on 13 February 2007 at 13:05 hours. As side note,
Chiquihuite Hill is located to the north of the Distrito Federal
and also covers a share of the state of Mexico, housing
telecommunications antennae.

Aviation pilot Captain Tarragona reported having seen, along
with his crew, a luminous disk shaped object. He described it as
"highly luminous" with red, blue and green lights, calculating
that it was at distance of approximately 3 kilometers. According
to his report, the pilot requested information from the Veracruz
Center, asking if there was traffic in the area, and receiving a
negative reply. This occurred during a nocturnal flight over the
Gulf of Mexico and the exact date is unknown, estimating that it
took place during the last week of January and early February

Captain Pena, commander of an Aviacsa Boeing 737, remarked that
he had a sighting during a daytime flight on the Mexico-Acapulco
route. According to his account, the possible UFO resembled a
basketball, with a metallic appearance, and it reportedly
escorted his airliner for an estimated 5 minutes, coming
dangerously close to the upper section of the aircraft's
starboard wing. Subsequently, the sphere rose into the air and
vanished from sight. Captain Pena added that he was convinced of
the existence of UFOs. The exact date of this event is not
known, and apparently occurred at the same time as the preceding
report, that is to say, between January and February 2007.
