"Do you believe" - Mexican Airforce photographs UFO's

Mexico City Mexican air force pilots filmed 11 unidentified flying objects in the skies over southern Campeche state, a Defence Department spokesman confirmed Tuesday.

A videotape made widely available to the news media Tuesday shows the bright objects, some sharp points of light and others like large headlights, moving rapidly in what appears to be a late-evening sky.

The lights were filmed March 5 by pilots using infrared equipment. They appeared to be flying at an altitude of about 3,500 metres and allegedly surrounded the air force jet as it conducted routine anti-drug trafficking vigilance in Campeche. Only three of the objects showed up on the plane's radar.

Rest of story.....

Interesting stuff...

Unusual that it was filmed by the military. As the article says, militaries around the world are generally not known for stirring up hoaxes. (Though they do make a lot of mistakes.)

gee, there don't seem to exist any planes that don't show up on any radar and in low light conditions and at a distance they can be anything from training to testing.

That was my very first thought. I'm not the type to be a conspiracy theorist, but I wonder why there aren't any more stories like this in the US, only vague rumors.

If I can just get all your attention for just a moment....




[Edit] Here's a link to a video. It's the one off of Fark.

I can't tell what the hell it is, let alone if it's a legitimate alien craft sighting.

Oooooo, they're dots! That may or may not be flying in formation. It may be a smudge!! On the camera!!

They said those images were not visable to the eye. They flew towards the objects and never came close.

The images were only seen through inferred (sp) And being that high up ,the air is cold. So the heat source was very prominent.

Anyways this is what i listened to and read.

perhaps the mexican army has discovered light bulbs and they were so stricken with joy and excitment like the caveman first discovering fire, they were jumping around with joy while holding them.
