    I read this story yesterday, and now they've released the footage. Its a tiny little Real Media file, so it's hard to judge, but I can't say it's very compelling. The last few shots look like car headlights (you can even see the reflection on the bumper or road right below the twin lights) superimposed over images of clouds. On other hand, I don't know why some Mexican drug police would want to make this up. I'm skeptical of most UFO stories, but I thought it was interesting at the very least.

    LOL

    yeah it looks pretty dodgy... If a more credible military got this footage, I might believe it, but to say "the armed forces don't perpetrate frauds" is a load of BS, and the Mexicans are more likely to pull a crackpot story than the RAF, or the USAF.

    What gets me is that they haven't shown this earlier - read the story a couple days ago - you'd have thought it would be a bigger story.... :confused:

    what people are missing is that this was taken in infared. this is why no detail.They were looking for drug runners but found something a little different. The Mexican air force wouldnt have released this unless there was something to it. On the otherhand if it was the U.S. air force we wouldnt have ever heard of it. the Belgian air force also had radar and photo evidence from about 10 years ago. U.S Govt reaction? no reaction. kind of strange. you would think they would at least be interested from a military point of view. they know something we dont? I think they do.

    Would not be the least bit surprised of it was a UFO, as in an unidentified flying object that our government built and is testing. Maybe a new type of propulsion?

    I doubt it is an alien or whatever. Too many mouths to keep shut is there is real, absolute proof.

    UFO stories seemed to have fallen out of favor not that we are actually in space. There will need to be some actually scientific investigation of the footage to know for sure.

    it IS U.F.O. footage, by definition. However, I doubt it's extra-terrestrial in nature.

    To me that looks like ~6 F-16s with afterburners, or an AN-225 with afterburners ;) :D .

    I wish UFO photos were more cool looking. Lights aren't that impressive unless you are there and see it for yourself. If a UFO that looked like a Tie-Fighter from Star Wars flying thru downtown New York with the sounds from the movies in the middle of the day, then we can say that it was probably a UFO.

    I hope the mystery about UFO's is solved by the public at large someday in our lifetime. I can understand the cover up because it would cause panic for some people that aren't ready.

    Yep, people tend to equate UFO with extra-terrestrial. What about all those reports of a triangular shaped UFOs in the southwest US decades ago... B2 bomber anyone?

    No, the 225 has no afterburners.

    I live in the California desert, not far from where a lot of airplane manufacturers build prototypes and fly them out of Edwards Air Force Base. In the last several months I've been hearing a terrifically loud airplane. I look up at the typically cloudless blue sky and see absolutely nothing in any direction. It's got my interest.

    Yeah, this was almost definitely a UFO sighting (the Mexican air force doesn't exactly have a stellar reputation, but what on earth would they have to gain by faking photos of mysterious lights at 10,000 feet? Recruting publicity? "Join the Mexican Air Force, where you can bust drug growers and spot aliens!").

    The question is, was it an exceedingly bizzare atmospheric phenomenon (unlikely), a US (or another country, even) test flight of something secret (anybody realistic knows there's plenty of weird stuff the US is working on, with no alien technology involved), or a real live alien sighting.

    Who knows, but it's interesting either way.

    All I know is, these aliens are pro'lly illegal - so lets put up the "no vacancy" sign. No one needs them making crop circles in our cornfields, doing weird experiments on Montana cows, or frustrating our scientists at Area 51 with new leaps in back-engineered propulsion systems. Send them back, no exceptions,end of problem. :)

    mexican UFO

    now, ok i saw the video and pictures too and read the article, and as me being a Mexican myself (born in Mexico) i dont believe it one bit, but heres the thing, Mexican officials made that video and submittited to USA FBI just to scare the pants off the white people, haha, not being racist or anything but white people will believe anything, haha...one time i told my white friend that his girlfriend hated him and he believed me, another time i told him that there was a huge tarantula on his back, he believed me again...see, its all simple mathematics, the Mexican tells the white man something, the white man believes it, the Mexican has a laugh...all in a days work...haha


    :) :D ;) :p

    hope you guys have a sense of humor...haha :D

    that stupid idea of "outwitting" someone is so detrimental to mexican society

    the result is a society that sees the liar and cheater as something good

    if youre a real mexican, move back and try to change the world´s negative view on our country, which is so evident in this thread
