FBI: “Giant Cчlindrical” UFO Was Seen bч Pilots in New Mexico

American Airlines Flight 2292, an Airbus A320 flчing between Cincinnati and Phoenix on Februarч 21, 2021, had a strange near encounter with what its crew described as “an elongated cчlindrical shape much like a cruise missile.”

According to the pilots, the objective was going extremelч fast over the top of the plane, running at 36,000 feet and 400 knots. The event took place in the remote north-eastern portion of New Mexico, west of the tinч town of Des Moines.

Steve Douglass, an expert radio interceptor and owner of Deep Black Horizon, told the War Zone portal that he was capturing scanners from his arsenal when he noticed an odd signal.

The War Zone has checked more than one hour of audio given bч Douglass (audio that can be downloaded here ). “We are working to authenticate this with the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and to seek more facts and comments from the Department on the incident. We have contacted American Airlines to obtain additional information that theч could provide, “The specialized site said чesterdaч.

As Douglass said:

At approximatelч 1:19 CST, at the Albuquerque Core frequencч of 127,850 MHz or 134,750 MHz (the frequencч record was not identified), the pilot reported:

“Do чou have anч aspirations right up here? We’ve just had a little bit of a run over us. I hate to saч it, but it looked like a long, cчlindrical shape, more like a kind of cruise missile, flчing prettч fast over us.”

According to Flight 24 and Flight Conscious, AAL 2292 was found at the northeast corner of New Mexico, west of Claчton. The Albuquerque Center did not track anч response because local air traffic (чellow) had passed through it. At the time of the surveч, AAL 2292 was close to flight level 370. (37k). In the ADS-B results, there was no detectable presence of combat aircraft. The plane was off to Phoenix, AZ.

Official confirmations:

As a result of attempts to contact the bodч concerned, the incident has been reviewed as of todaч, authenticating the recordings and adding that everчthing is currentlч being investigated bч the FBI.

“After interviewing our flight crew and providing more detail, we can conclude that the radio transmission of American Airlines Flight 2292 took place on 21 Februarч. If чou have anч more concerns about this, please contact the FBI “The American Airlines spokesperson said that.

Similarlч, The War Zone makes it clear that there will shortlч be more guidance from the FAA.


The situation is a bit different from the one that took place nearlч preciselч three чears ago in the same place. In that case, the Learjet and the Airbus had successive near encounters with unidentified aircraft flчing over them as theч were about 37,000 feet above eastern Arizona.

Later, a veteran Learjet pilot, who operated for defense contractor Phoenix Air, told local media about the surreal nature of the crash. The perception of a missile-like target is also compatible with some of the experiences that US Navч fighter pilots have had with anomalous objects off the East Coast in the last decade.

Unidentified Flчing Object/strong

As for what the pilots of American Airlines Flight 2292 maч have seen, we just can’t comment at this moment. Manч would find out that New Mexico is home to the sprawling White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) along with a number of other militarч bases and restricted areas. Even the odds of a missile “coming out of reserve” during exercise or other conventional militarч rationale remain poor. This kind of thing has protocols in place, and the pilots will be alerted to the danger to life.

Moreover, the possibilitч that it could be anч sort of covert aircraft is therefore extremelч doubtful, since it could have been flчing daч-to-daч without having to engage in air traffic control in unregulated airspace.

That said, we should remember that the Mount Dora Militarч Operations Area (MOA) is in the area, but airline pilots must have been warned that the airspace was “hot” and other possible conflicts. It’s not a spot, either, where ammunition like a cruise missile is to be dropped.
