Chicago O'Hare Mass UFO Sighting Gets New Recogntion

At approximately 4:15PM on Tuesday November 7, 2006, federal authorities at Chicago O'Hare International Airport received a report that a group of twelve airport employees were witnessing a metallic, saucer-shaped craft hovering over Gate C-17.


The object was first spotted by a ramp employee who was pushing back United Airlines Flight 446, which was departing Chicago for Charlotte, North Carolina. The employee apprised Flight 446's crew of the object above their aircraft. It is believed that both the pilot and co-pilot also witnessed the object.

Several independent witnesses outside of the airport also saw the object. One described a "blatant" disc shaped craft hovering over the airport which was "obviously not clouds." According to this witness, nearby observers gasped as the object shot through the clouds at high velocity, leaving a clear blue hole in the cloud layer. The hole reportedly seemed to close itself shortly afterward.

According to the Chicago Tribune's Jon Hilkevitch, "The disc was visible for approximately two minutes and was seen by close to a dozen United Airlines employees, ranging from pilots to supervisors, who heard chatter on the radio and raced out to view it." So far, no conclusive photographic evidence of the UFO has surfaced, although it was reported to Hilkevitch that one of the United Airlines pilots was in possession of a digital camera at the time of the sighting and may have photographed the event.

The story certainly warrants attention as this is the most popular story of all time the Chicago Tibune.  To watch a great video on the subject an read more check out this link for the Chicago O'Hare UFO Incident.

CHICAGO, April 2013 -- An online exhibit celebrating the 50th anniversary of Chicago's O'Hare airport features a 2006 video of a pilot reporting a UFO encounter.

The O'Hare@50 exhibit, created by Northwestern University's Transportation Library to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the airport's dedication by President John F. Kennedy, includes the "UFO video" among other documents, facts and other materials related to the airport.



The 2006 video involves a pilot flying at 38,000 feet having a conversation with the control tower. The pilot reports seeing an object at his "10 o'clock" that rapidly changes colors before vanishing. The air controller reports seeing nothing unusual.
