A report by online publication The Drive exposed the inexplicable encounters.
It reveals one of the planes was flying at around 37,000ft, when they spotted something bizarre above them.
They were travelling east between the Sonoran Desert National Monument and the New Mexico Border in the US on February 24.
And official audio recordings from the FAA of Albuquerque Centre air traffic control revealed how the incident unfolded.
The initial report came from an N71PG Learjet aircraft, asking if traffic had passed above them.
The controller replied “negative,” meaning there was nothing to his knowledge that would account for such an observation.
But the pilot replies defiantly, “something did.”
And another pilot chimes in on the frequency saying “a UFO” to which the Learjet pilot replies “yeah.”
A few minutes later, the controller asked another flight behind to look out for anything “pass over you here in the next 15 miles.”
An American Airlines captain exclaims in a puzzled manner “if anything passes over us?”
The controller hits back: ”Affirmative, we had an aircraft in front of you that reported something pass over him and we didn’t have any [radar] targets, so just let me know if you see anything pass over you.”
And sure enough, a minute later American 1095 airbus calls back to confirm he has spotted the UFO.
He says: “Yeah something just passed over us.
“I don’t know what it was, but it was at least two or three thousand feet above us.
“Yeah it passed right over the top of us.”
Baffled by the report, the controller asks the navigator: ”Could you tell if it was in motion or if it was just hovering?”
Before he quickly replies “I couldn’t make it out if it was a balloon or whatnot, but it was just really beaming light or had a big reflection and several thousand feet above us going the opposite direction.”
The entire event lasted around six minutes.
And according to an FAA representative the incident was not written up and noted.
