A UFO at O’Hare? Some pilots thought so Mon
Jan 1, 7:02 PM ET

CHICAGO – Federal officials say it was probably just some weird weather
phenomenon, but a group of United Airlines employees swear they saw a
mysterious, saucer-shaped craft hovering over O’Hare Airport last fall.

The workers, some of them pilots, said the object didn’t have lights
and
hovered over an airport terminal before shooting up through the clouds,
according to a report in Monday’s Chicago Tribune.

The Federal Aviation Administration acknowledged that a United
supervisor had called the control tower at O’Hare, asking if anyone had
spotted a spinning disc-shaped object. But the controllers didn’t see
anything, and a preliminary check of radar found nothing out of the
ordinary, FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory said.

“Our theory on this is that it was a weather phenomenon,” Cory said.
“That
night was a perfect atmospheric condition in terms of low (cloud)
ceiling
and a lot of airport lights. When the lights shine up into the clouds,
sometimes you can see funny things.”

The FAA is not investigating, Cory said.

United spokeswoman Megan McCarthy said company officials don’t recall
discussing any such incident from Nov. 7.

At least one O’Hare controller, union official Craig Burzych, was
amused
by it all.

“To fly 7 million light years to O’Hare and then have to turn around
and
go home because your gate was occupied is simply unacceptable,” he
said.

Cnn actually had this on the Off beat section of their page. So it just goes to show you that they aren’t taking this very seriously…
