IN THE SKY!
by Vanessa Cortez, staff reporter.
[January 25, 2002]
Bizarre lights in the night sky tracked an American Airlines flight from
New York to Los Angeles, says a keenly observant Weekly Universe photojournalist
who flew aboard the endangered plane.
"It was hovering right outside
my window," stated the reporter. "I considered alerting a stewardess,
but feared causing a panic."
||Instead, the seasoned ace
reporter maintained professional calm, and took a series of startling, exclusive photos with his Weekly Universe
issued digital camera.
"As I zoomed closer to record
this bizarre UFO phenomenon, I saw it was no plane -- nor anything that
was ever built on this planet!
|"The UFO maintained its
position, dipping and rising with the plane, but never moving ahead or
falling behind. As if some strange alien being inside that mysterious
flying object was watching -- maybe even photographing -- ME!
"It was all I could do to
suppress the shaking in my hands long enough to take each photo."
||For six tense hours, the
weird alien lights tracked the American Airlines flight to Los Angeles.
"As we began our descent
to LAX, I saw the jeweled lights of East L.A. glittering below. Yet
above those bedroom communities -- home to so many of the Weekly Universe's
hugely vast family of readers -- hovered those menacing lights!"
|"Seeing our vastly huge
family of readers below reminded me of my own family, back in Mosquito
Bay, Florida. I pulled down the window screen and prayed for God
to take care of them -- and He answered!
"We landed safely -- with
only my photos as reminder of my terrifying ordeal!"
Amazingly, no Los Angeles
officials, nor American Airlines, nor the US Air Force, have admitted to
any UFO phenomena on that fearsome night.
The reporter is a 16-year
veteran. He had sat on the plane's right side, in the rear economy
section, roughly parallel to the wing tip.
