I thought this would be a cool post for this forum. An upcoming movie, entitled "UFO", starring the X-Files, Gillian Anderson, (who was born in
Chicago), seems to be loosely based on the 2006 Chicago O'Hare UFO sighting. On November 7, 2006, people at Chicago O'Hare International Airport
reported seeing a disc-shaped UFO hovering above the airport for @5 minutes, before shooting through the "clouds at high velocity, leaving a clear
blue hole in the cloud layer". It was seen by "a dozen United Airlines employees, ranging from pilots to supervisors", but the FAA
believed all they saw, on that day, was just a weird "weather phenomenon" and failed to do a follow up investigation on it. However, the
National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP), in a published report, stated that “Anytime an airborne object can hover for
several minutes over a busy airport but not be registered on radar or seen visually from the control tower, (it) constitutes a potential threat to
This upcoming movie, which will be released sometime in September, is about a rash of UFO sightings that are occurring at airports around the United
States. A college student, haunted by a past UFO sighting, tries to persuade people that aliens are attemptng to make contact. This movie must be
awful, because it's skipping theaters and going straight to Video On Demand. Personally, I would love to see a docudrama based on the 2006 O'Hare UFO
sighting. My gut says that it was a genuine extraterrestrial craft that hovered above the airport on that day and the government covered it up, by
dismissing it as just "weird weather."
"I tend to be scientific by nature, and I don't understand why aliens would hover over a busy airport," said a United mechanic who said he saw
the object while taxiing a Boeing 777 to a maintenance hangar. "But I know that what I saw and what a lot of other people saw stood out very clearly,
and it definitely was not an [Earth] aircraft."
The FAA initially denied there were any reports of a UFO sighting, but later backtracked after a Freedom of Information Act filed by the
newspaper revealed the call by the United supervisor to the FAA.

Ooh It's got David Strathairn in it too.
Gillian Anderson with her fake American accent is always good, better when she speaks normally.. super hot.
Hope they do the topic justice.
Gillian Anderson was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Rosemary Alyce (Lane), a computer analyst, and Homer Edward Anderson III, who owned a film
post-production company. She has English, German, and Irish ancestry. Gillian started her career as a member of an amateur actor group while at high

well this INSTANTLY goes on my must see movies! Love this sighting. One of my all time favorites. Still to this day, no explanation for what was seen
other than something no one could explain, and still hasn't today. Love all the actors involved too. Looks awesome from the trailer.
Springer will be interested in this I would guess.....some very comprehensive sleuthing was done on the incident, enough to say there was something
involved in the incident, and that FAA and the like were pretty lax in their investigating.
I was there. There was something that was missed........
Power outages were going on that day on the airport. It started in the morning at United, then radio communication failures at the airport. I haven't
seen any mention of it in any of the reports about the sighting.
Interesting tidbit. I don’t believe this has been mentioned, thanks.
No one who works there speaks of this incident. As soon as the subject is mentioned to persons who work at O’Hare, a strained tension wraps the air
and they essentially pretend as though they were unaware of the sighting, and act like it’s a figment of your imagination, showing less than zero
interest. Only thing I can surmise is that there were warnings issued, and some examples set. Should you begin to mention particulars, the date etc,
the group will find reason to scatter.
