SOURCE OF INFORMATION:
On November 15, 2022, The Black Vault filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for information related to the incident. The result was a visual of the radar data, laid over the ATC recordings. That clip is below.
There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.” Genesis 6:4
It begins with the edited version created by The Black Vault to clip out long pauses, and non-UAP related banter. Edits are notated by a flash on the screen. It is then followed by the entire ATC recording, which plays in full, unedited and in real time.
In addition to this sighting, the recording also revealed another sighting of the same or similar phenomenon seen by an American Airlines flight the night prior. A FOIA case has already been filed, in hopes information can be released on that. By the date, and description, it appears it is likely American Airlines flight 399. That case will be added to The Black Vault, should information be released. This sighting on November 10th, coincides with another as seen by commercial airline pilots over Texas.
Note: The Black Vault has NOT done a formal investigation on this incident. Rather, the page you are on now was setup to archive a confirmed sighting archived within the FAA’s files. Noted “debunker” Mick West chimed in, and his explanation is below.
