It's a bird....It's a wait...

Employees at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport insist they observed a UFO hovering over the airport for several minutes on November 7th , 2006. It quickly disappeared, leaving a visible hole in the clouds.

Was it a Martian spaceship, a weather balloon or a top-secret military plane? Maybe it was a lost glider or simply a reflection?

Airport officials are doing a Sgt Schultz routine and not talking about the event. The Federal Aviation Administration admits its air traffic control tower at O'Hare did receive a call from a United Airlines employee asking if controllers had spotted a mysterious elliptical object hovering over Concourse C of the United terminal. The FAA reported that none of its controllers or the airport radar noticed anything extraordinary, or extra-terrestrial for that matter. The FAA is not concerned at all and dismisses any alleged sighting as a "weather phenomenon". But those who claim they saw it are sticking to their story, one poor soul was so distraught over the whole affair and "experienced some religious issues" over it, a fellow employee reported.

It was reported that the saucer appeared about 4:30PM. Everyone who saw it said the object was dark gray, elliptical and easily seen . No one seemed to agree on the size of the thing, with estimates ranging from 6 feet to 24 feet in diameter. Some said it looked like a rotating Frisbee, while others said it did not appear to be spinning. All agreed the object hovered noiselessly and vanished into the cloud cover.

I think the damn thing was frustrated over no available landing slots and no gates open at the terminal. Can you imagine, we are about to make first contact and the damn airport is at capacity? What could the Martians do but turn around and go home. Certainly the aliens were not happy about diverting to Milwaukee or Rockford. Lucky they didn't use a death ray.

Maybe this will spur on development of a new airport for Chicago.
