Local media reported that the FBI is aware of the sighting confirming the close encounter with ‘a long cylindrical object’ when the Airbus A320 plane, AA flight 2292 flew from Cincinnati to Phoenix was at a height of 36,000 feet over New Mexico.
As per the report, Frank Connor, the FBI spokesperson confirmed the incident, however, it hasn’t confirmed the launch of an investigation into the matter.
He urged anyone aware of suspicious or criminal activity should contact their local law enforcement agency or the FBI and that they are “continuously with our federal, state, local, and tribal partners to share intelligence and protect the public.”
The flight crew witnessed a quick-moving unusual object flying above them. According to an unconfirmed radio transmission, the pilot reported the air traffic control if they had any targets up there.
“I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing – moving really fast right over the top of us,” the pilot said.
