HOUSTON — (AP) Federal and local authorities are trying to find the source of a “strange unidentified flying object” the pilot of a Continental Express plane reported flying about 150 feet beneath his Embracer 145 in southeast Texas on June 3, 2009. Police in Liberty County, Texas, say they are working with the FBI and the Federal Aviation Administration in a review of an alleged UFO sighting. The pilot claimed to have seen on object flying near Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport. “The FAA is trying to come up with a more definite identity and track of this object and its path. We are trying to find out where it came from, where it went, and who may be responsible for it.”
“No people were injured and no evasive action on part of the airplane was taken.” The pilot, whose identity was not reported, said the object appeared to possibly be a missile or rocket.
Liberty County Sheriff’s Department Cpl. Hugh Bishop said deputies looked for a possible launch or landing site for the item but had not found anything yet. “We are going to try and come up with a more definite track of this object and its path,” sheriff’s chief deputy Ken DeFoor said in a story for the Houston Chronicle. “We are trying to find out where it came from, where it went, and who may be responsible for it.” The plane, with 23 passengers and three crewmembers, had just passed 11,000 feet, going to 16,000 feet. Flight 2822 from Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport continued safely on to South Carolina. A Continental Airlines pilot reported a similar incident in the same area in May of 2008.
