In the sky! A bird? A plane? A...UFO?-- Chicago Tribune
I am generally of the opinion that until I have my own encounter with a UFO, I am inclined to dismiss those that are taken seriously, or at least given public attention, as the product of psychedelic hallucinogens or just pathetic attempts to get a little bit of attention. However, because all of the United employees that the Tribune interviewed spoke under condition of anonymity, and because the FAA and United were willing to compromise their credibility by lying to the Tribune when first contacted regarding the official record of events, I think this event deserves to be investigated thoroughly. I believe that these employees saw "something", and I also believe that the airline and the federal authorities would prefer to avoid having to figure out exactly what that "something" was, but as long as the Tribune aggressively pursues the story I do not doubt we will have an official explanation of an inexplicable anomaly sooner rather than later.
