Mexico: Blue UFO over MCIA
A report from Alfonso Salazar
On the evening of January 5, 2011, the staff at MCIA (Mexico City International Airport) reported an unidentified flying object emitting an intense blue light.
The time was 21:40 hours when they saw that the UFO was flying at the same elevation as the air corridors (approximately 12,000 meters).
Aviation mechanic Hector Borja, along with supervisor Alberto Manzano, described the strange object's fly-over in these terms:"It traveled at a speed similar to that of an airliner, but did not have the three navigation lights (red, green and white). It flew from east to west over the airport and took some 10 minutes to vanish from sight. It was a clear, cloudless night."
Both witnesses are aviation professionals with over 20 years' experience.
This report is added to others that occurred in late 2010.
On December 29, 2010, qualified personnel at the Cancun Airport (Quintana Roo) saw a strange, luminous object resembling a discotheque light array stand over the airport before flying off to sea.
On December 30, 2010, duty personnel at the Toluca Airport noticed a flying object that emitted a light with a bluish tinge. The object later stood still, and after a few moments continued its trajectory before losing itself from view in the stars. Likewise, other viewers in the aforementioned airport saw two fireballs dropping from above onto property within the Toluca Airport. According to their description, the fireballs appeared to fight each other before falling into the airport's terrain (I will endeavor to find out where the fell, as this is Federal property and official permission is required to move within it).
