[UPDATE 2/23/2021 7:59am. American Airlines issued the following statement: "At this time, we do not have any indication the radio transmission was from the flight crew on board American Airlines Flight 2292 on Feb. 21."]

In 2017, the New York Times reported on Navy pilot sightings of strange cigar or "Tic Tac"-shaped UFOs conducting seemingly impossible maneuvers before their very eyes. (Video still above.)

Yesterday, the crew on American Airlines Flight 2292, flying between Cincinnati and Phoenix, saw something very similar, according to The Drive. They described it as a "long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile," and noticed it when the plane was flying over New Mexico.

In audio received by The Drive, which they are trying to authenticate with the FAA (some of which can be downloaded here), the pilot says, "Do you have any targets up here?  We just had something go right over the top of us – I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing – moving really fast right over the top of us."

I haven't seen this reported elsewhere, but I'm keeping an eye out and will update if I see anything else.
