Chicago O'hare ufo report released

The staff of the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP) headed by respected scientist Dr. Richard Haines has released a report (152 page PDF file) on the Chicago O’Hare Airport UFO incident of November 7, 2006.

The text is long and detailed, and most of us will not be willing to read it all, but the study suggests (as the credo of NARCAP declares) that the sighting of any unknown object in the sky is a potential hazard to pilots and their crews and passengers, and that this should be taken seriously by the aviation community.

The report is one of the most exhaustive UFO incident studies in recent years. The authors examined witness testimony, (at least 8 ground personnel) radar reports (nothing conclusive was detected) and weather at the time of the sighting.

Haines and his co-authors conclude, in part:

This investigation has determined that, based upon the testimony of multiple eye witnesses in different locations at O’Hare International Airport, a small physical, and apparently solid object hovered over the United Airlines concourse area for at least ten minutes or more but was not detected either by radar or visually by air traffic controllers in the tower. For this reason the object is considered a definite potential threat to flight operations at O’Hare.
