Some workers at Chicago/O’Hare Airport claim to have seen a UFO on the night of November 7, 2006 (CNN story): it hovered over the field and then climbed rapidly out of sight. The FAA talked a lot about low ceilings and airport lights creating optical illusions, but I found the explanation from controller and union rep Craig Burzych much more convincing:
“To fly 7 million light years to O’Hare and then have to turn around and go home because your gate was occupied is simply unacceptable.”
Next time you’re in an airliner landing at a major hub, don’t grumble if you’re stuck for 15 or 20 minutes because another plane is in your gate — it might just be saving the world from eternal servitude to a race of hyperintelligent (but impatient) cyborgs.
Hey, I’d better catch up on my blogging. I’ve not posted that story yet.
