Large Disc Shaped UFO Spotted Over Chicago O’Hare Airport on November 7, 2006

On November 7, 2006, about 4:15 p.m., United Airlines personnel reported a big disc-shaped object floating above Gate C-17 at Chicago O’Hare Airport. The UFO floated for several minutes before shooting straight up through the clouds, according to witnesses. Because the UFO was not observed on radar, the Federal Aviation Administration declined to examine the occurrence and referred to it as a “weather phenomenon.”

On November 7, 2006, at approximately 16:15 CST, federal officials at Chicago O’Hare International Airport received a report from a group of twelve airport personnel that a metallic, saucer-shaped craft was hovering at Gate C-17.

A ramp employee who was pushing back United Airlines Flight 446, which was departing Chicago for Charlotte, North Carolina, first noticed the object. The employee informed Flight 446’s crew about the item hovering above their plane. Pilots, airline executives, and mechanics all seen the item. The item was not seen by air traffic controllers, and it did not appear on radar.

The UFO was characterized as entirely silent, 6 to 24 feet (1.8 to 7.3 meters) in diameter, and dark gray in hue by witnesses. The object was also seen by other independent witnesses outside of the airport. One person described a disc-shaped UFO hovering over the airport as “clearly not clouds.” The object, according to one witness, blasted through the clouds, leaving a clear blue hole in the cloud layer. Shortly after, the hole appeared to close on its own.

Shortly after, the hole appeared to close on its own.

“The disc was visible for approximately five 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,” according to Jon Hilkevitch of the Chicago Tribune.

The National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP) has released a 155-page report on the encounter, calling for a government investigation and better energy-sensing technology: “Anytime an airborne object can hover for several minutes over a busy airport but not be registered on radar or seen visually from the control tower, constitutes a potential threat to flight safety.”

Witnesses

“But I know that what I saw and what a lot of other people saw stood out very clearly, and it definitely was not an [Earth] aircraft,” one mechanic told reporter Jon Hilkevitch.

After hearing about the encounter on an internal airline radio frequency, a manager on Concourse B dashed outside his office.

“I knew no one would make a false call like that. But if somebody was bouncing a weather balloon or something else over O’Hare, we had to stop it because it was in very close proximity to our flight operations.”

Despite the fact that the Federal Aviation Administration and the airline refused to investigate the incident, the story was subsequently picked up by several major media outlets, prompting people to reassess their views on UFOs.

“This thing was hovering over Chicago O’Hare Airport at rush hour,” Kean explained. “Lots of people saw it … the U.S. government never said a word.”

Conclusion

Both United Airlines and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) first denied having any information on the O’Hare UFO incident until the Chicago Tribune filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which was researching the report. Following the Chicago Tribune’s FOIA request, the FAA ordered an internal study of air-traffic communications tapes, which revealed a conversation from a United supervisor to an FAA management in the airport tower about the UFO incident.
