A former B-1 bomber pilot claims he witnessed a UFO over the Arizona desert and says it didn't look anything like an airplane. Blenus Green, a former B-1 bomber pilot who's now a commercial aviator for American Airlines, shared his UFO encounter with the news.
Blenus Green and his co-pilot were flying an American Airlines Airbus A321 over Arizona in February when they were told by Albuquerque-based air traffic controllers that a flight ahead of them had reported a flying object not on radar. The controllers asked him to radio them if he saw anything similar. Shortly afterwards, Green saw an object, according to recordings of his conversations with the controllers.
"It's American 1095. Yeah, something just passed over us," Green said. "I don't know what it was, but at least two-three thousand feet above us. Yeah, it passed right over the top of us." "Albuquerque Center asked us if we could look and just be on the lookout and see if we see anything, and I'm like 'okay,'" Green said. "So, sure enough, I was looking out the windscreen because I wanted to see if it was there and yeah, I did. I saw it," Green said.
Green said that the object "was very bright but it wasn't so bright that you couldn't look at it," and that "it didn't look anything like an airplane." He noticed that the object was bright in areas where the sun was not reflecting off the metal. "Normally, if you have an object and the sun is shining this way, the reflection would be on this side, but this was bright all the way around," he said.
"It was so bright that you really couldn't make out what shape it was," Green said. With 20 years of flying experience, much of which was spent as a B-1 Lancer pilot in the US Air Force, Green said he wasn't scared, but fascinated by the flying object.
