A video exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com shows a pulsating orb caught on camera by FedEx pilots flying over Mexico – which experts say could be a UFO with a plasma forcefield that may help it fly or deflect radar.  

FedEx pilots flying a cargo aircraft near Monterrey, Mexico on March 19, 2020, saw a bright flash of light. They stopped at their altitude to shoot it, then moved in tandem for more than 30 minutes.

The Captain captured a stunning video of the encounter. This was then analyzed by the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena, a non-profit organization that studies UFO encounters with pilots in order to develop safety procedures.

The pilots were not named in the report, as many in aviation are still wary about the stigma surrounding UFOs despite U.S. and other government acknowledgment.

Ted Roe, NARCAP executive director, said that the pilots’ account was consistent with what pilots have reported for over 100 years. 

Two FedEx pilots were flying a cargo aircraft near Monterrey, Mexico on March 19, 2020 when they saw a bright flash from the sky.

The UFO stopped at their altitude, shot them with a beam of light, then moved in tandem with the plane for over 30 minutes before flying away

The UFO stopped at their height, shot them with light beams, and then moved in tandem to the plane for over 30 mins before flying away.

Mysteriously, the UFO did not show up on the plane's radar. Experts say it could be a UFO with a plasma forcefield that may help it fly or deflect radar

The UFO didn’t appear on the plane’s radar, which is strange. Experts believe it could be a UFO equipped with a plasma forcefield, which may help it fly or deflect radar.

According to the report the captain of the Boeing 767 cargo aircraft is a ‘career pilot with 19 year experience flying wide-body aircraft for a large cargo company with an additional 10yrs of flying KC-135 refuelling tankers for US Air Force’. The first officer, meanwhile, was a career fighter pilot that flew f-15s prior to working in the private sector.

Ted Roe, NARCAP executive Director, said that the pilots’ account was “very consistent with what pilots report for over 100 year’

They were described by the authors as ‘competent pilots, highly experienced in identifying and observing aircraft, and capable of determining both normal and unusual observations.

The plane was heading to Memphis, Tennessee from Queretaro International Airport in Mexico City, at 8.05pm. It was approximately 150 miles south of Monterrey when the unidentified object suddenly appeared.

According to the report, the incident began when the First officer, looking across the cockpit to the left, saw a yellowish-white light descend from above.

“He believed it was a meteor at first and then he began to believe it when it stopped at the same altitude as their aircraft. The UAP [unidentified aerial phenomenon]/Light projected an illuminated beam of bright, white light onto their aircraft and appeared to be heading for a collision.

“At this moment, the Captain also saw the beam projected onto their aircraft by the UAP/Light. In the belief that an aircraft without its landing lights had turned into a collision heading with their aircraft they took a defensive posture and prepared for evasive inputs.

Instead of heading towards them, the UFO started to move in tandem with them between 1,000 and 2,000 feet.

The report stated that as they tried to avoid an approaching UAP/Light, the beam light that illuminated their aircraft suddenly stopped and the UAP/Light suddenly accelerated at the same speed and heading as the aircraft. It then maintained separation and paced it. 

The video shows the captain expressing his shock at seeing the UFO. He described it as a bright yellow white plasma object with teardrop-shaped features.

According to the report, there were no navigation lights or other features that are associated with planes.

The captain recorded a five-minute video, three additional clips and eight photos of the object.

The UFO didn’t appear on the plane’s radar, which is quite strange.

“I thought it was shooting stars, but then it stopped,” the former Air Force pilot stated in the video.

‘It’s like an orb man, look at that s**t. It’s pulsating. This is incredible. And he’s on TCAS [the plane’s radar].

‘That is s**t hot… Oh man, look at that thing dude.

“That is an unidentified, flying object bro, I can finally claim that I saw one.” That is pretty cool.

“You saw it just fall out of the sky, and just stop?” He asked his copilot.

“Yeah. It was a shooting star at first, then it stopped,” replied the former F-15 pilot.

The plane left Queretaro International Airport  north of Mexico City at 8.05pm, and was about 150 miles south of Monterrey on its way to Memphis, Tennessee, when the unidentified object appeared

The captain was flying a similar Boeing 767 cargo plane. He was described as a 'a career pilot with 19 years of experience flying wide-body aircraft for a major cargo company'

The captain was flying a Boeing 767 cargo plane. He was described as a career pilot with 19-years of experience flying wide-body aircraft in large cargo companies.

The captain suggested that it could be a weather balloon. [inaudible]It’s 15,000 feet AGL [above ground level]. This thing is above our altitude.

The 767 was traveling at approximately 575 mph at 37,000 feet when the encounter occurred.

According to the report, ‘As the UAP/Light approached Mexico/US border, it began to flicker. It changed colors from yellowish/purple to yellow-white. Then, it turned on a perpendicular headaway from the aircraft and paralleled the border without crossing into America.

‘We’re going to lose him in the clouds, son of a b***h,’ the captain said towards the end of the video.

“There is weather 40 miles from our left wingtip where this object seems to have vanished. It didn’t have beacons or strobes.

The captain recorded his radar screen and found no UFO sign, only patches of clouds west of the 767.

Metabunk’s aviation experts, Mick West, a renowned UFO debunker, attempted to explain the light as Venus, and the pulsating effects as deceptive effects from the camera autofocus adjusting it lens in the dark.

Although the NARCAP report did not identify the flight, West identified it using flight records that match the times in the report as FedEx flight FDX82. The flight left Queretaro 50 min late at 8.55pm and arrived in Memphis at 12.20am.

West made star maps showing Venus in a similar spot in the sky to the place where pilots saw the pulsating lights. This was approximately 10 degrees above the horizon at night.

He wrote: “Out of focus, with atmospheric distortion, and focus seeking it looks like an wobbly pulseating blob.”

West posted videos on the forum showing how stars can appear flashy or rippled on camera due to atmospheric distortions and heat shimmer. This was exaggerated because an autofocus lens is coming in and going out of focus.

However, the pilots told NARCAP they saw the pulsing, plasma-like appearance with their own eyes as well as capturing it on camera, and described seeing the pulsing light, as well as the inexplicable movement of the object – dropping from the sky, coming to a complete stop in mid-air and then matching their speed and direction.

NARCAP executive director Ted Roe says, ‘We have a database going back to 1916. He said that it describes four types of UAP encounters: balls of light, spheres and cylinders.

“I went through all the analysis. There was some evidence that it could have been an effect of the stars. Venus was very bright that night.

“But if you look at the whole narrative of how they describe it, dropping in vertically, stopping at their altitude, and then pacing their aircraft, that is a very consistent tale. We’ve seen many of them.

“They flew northbound from Queretaro Airport. Venus was very high in the west sky at that time and bright. They were well aware. They were at 37,000 ft.

“When he turns the camera towards his radar, which was probably the most important aspect of the case and really the only reason why I took it off, it confirmed what i’ve been saying all along that UAP are intermittently detectable on radar. His radar monitor was not activated when he turned his camcorder on.

“It also showed that there were clouds to the West and if Venus was parallel with his aircraft, appearing at his altitude. The clouds would have obstructed him.”

Roe suggested that both the UFO’s teardrop-shaped shape and the lack of radar returns could be due plasma surrounding it.

“We didn’t get a clearly defined video to show what this phenomenon was. We do have the description. It was teardrop-shaped and white/yellow. He said, “I’m guessing these things are plasma-related or have plasma in them.”

“We use plasma for cutting the radar cross-section of the reflectable parts on a stealth plane. They might use plasma actuators to absorb the signal, rather than allowing it to reflect.

The plane left Queretaro International Airport (pictured) north of Mexico City at 8.05pm on its way to Memphis, Tennessee

The plane took off from Queretaro International Airport (pictured), north of Mexico City, at 8.05pm. It was on its way to Memphis. 

University of Florida researchers published a report about a “proof-of concept demonstration” of plasma being used to make a wingless, wingless object selflifte, hover and fly’ in 2011.

The Air Force Office of Scientific Research sponsored the experiments. It involved ‘building characterization, testing and simulation of plasma actuators. Power and propulsion systems. Micromachining and microfabrication.

NARCAP was created in 1999 to investigate the safety implications of pilots encounters with UFO reports.

It employs approximately 50 specialists who conduct ‘investigations. analysis. publications. and activism related UAP and aviation safety.

According to NARCAP, Dr. Richard Haines is the chief scientist of NARCAP. He has collected “over 3,400 aviation-related observations and incidents involving unknown aerial phenomena”.

Roe said that DailyMail.com is his main frustration that the Federal Aviation Administration refuses to document incidents such as the FedEx pilots.

He said that the FAA will not accept their reports. The primary manual for pilots, the aeronautical instructions manual, tells them that they can report a UFO to a civilian UFO reporting station.

“This has been going for decades. The aviation system and safety planners are unaware of the information.

“Recently, we’ve had the UAP Task Force (and government activity on this subject). The Director of National Intelligence stated in the report that UAP pose a threat to aviation on June 25, and they were quite clear about it.

“When they were looking for data, it was hard to imagine what it was like going into FAA’s offices saying “You guys must have all these great UFO information, we need it now.” But they don’t because they’ve been telling pilots they don’t take those reports.
