Duration:apx. 10-15 minutes
|Ufo sighted by ExprssJet Piots and confirmed by the crew of another ExpressJet.
On Wednesday March 14, 2007 at approximately 22:25 CDT, I was working a High altitude sector. I am an air traffic controller.
The crew of an Express Jet Embrair Jet asked if I showed any traffic at their 2 o’clock position and about 40 miles. I did not and told them so. I then asked for a description.
They reported the object to have reddish light with some white. At about the same time the crew of another Express Jet confirmed the sighting.
The first aircraft was about 50 miles east of Corpus Christi, TX, southbound at 36,000feet. The other aircraft was 60 miles in front of the first aircraft heading the same direction and at the same altitude.
I then got a strong primary radar return at the reported object position for about 12 to 20 seconds, which then disappeared.
The first aircraft then noticed the object descending and then moving off to the west at high speed.
