A new audio recording appears to feature an American Airlines pilot reporting an unidentified flying object (UFO) sighting during a flight from Boston, Massachusetts, to Middletown, Pennsylvania. The pilot claimed that the UFO “went 180 degrees in like a second.”

Earlier this month, WOKQ reported that an American Airlines pilot had a strange encounter with an alleged UFO, which took place on February 12 on a flight from Boston Logan International Airport to the Harrisburg International Airport in Middletown, Pennsylvania.

An audio recording posted on YouTube allegedly documents a conversation between the unidentified pilot and an air traffic control operator.

At the beginning of the audio recording, the pilot can be heard telling the air traffic control operator, “Well, you’re going to think I’m crazy; there’s something that just went from right to left to right in a blink and then flashed his lights three or four times and then vanished.”

When the air traffic control operator explained that whatever the pilot spotted was likely another airplane that had recently been in the area, the pilot noted that the unidentified aircraft went “180 degrees in like a second.”

After the pilot shared the abnormal speed at which the alleged UFO turned, the air traffic control operator can be heard asking the pilot to let them know if the UFO was spotted again.

“Well, the detail… it literally went from one coast to another in front of us, and then it went up like 30 degrees, turned off its lights or whatever it had. It looked like it was a bright orangey thing,” the pilot answered. “And then, since we spoke to you last, it flashed us like three or four times, and we are still looking at it now.”

Asked for a rough estimate regarding the location of the UFO, the pilot said it appeared somewhere between 60 and 80 miles from the aircraft.

“It looks like it’s coming… it’s flashing toward us, but it is definitely not an airplane. It doesn’t have the strobe lights or anything on it. It’s just this bright orange going on and off,” the pilot added. “Yep, this definitely wasn’t an airplane.”

The alleged report of the American Airlines pilot comes after the Pentagon announced the launch of a new website last fall under the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office in an effort to provide the American public with declassified information regarding UFOs, which the government labels unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAPs), as increasing numbers of UFO sightings have been reported in recent years.
