Reported: 10/6/2006 7:13:25 AM 07:13
Posted: 10/30/2006
Location: Arizona (In-flight), AZ
Duration: 4-6 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Red and blue ,box shape with rounded corners, with vapor trail, traveling parallel with my plane going in opposite direction.

I was traveling on American Airlines headed for San Diego out of DFW on the 27th of Sept, flight 465, my plane left DFW at 11:15. It was about an hour before landing in San Diego, I guess we were in Arizona at that time, not sure.

This thing was traveling parallel with the plane going in the opposite direction, about a half mile from the plane, it was so close to the plane. It looked like the front part of a van, kind of like a box with rounded corners, wrap around window, it was vivid in colors, red and blue, there was a very vivid vapor trail, it was visual only for about 6 seconds, then gone, all but the vapor trail.

I was surprised the pilot didn't mention it to the passengers, he had to see it coming. It was in our flight space and so close, could be why he didn't mention it. I wanted to ask in a loud voice, did anybody see that! Even though it was only there for a few seconds, I have no doubt about what I saw.......
