UFO Filmed Over Sacramento By News Chopper!

By | November 25, 2008

The UFOChronicles has an article about a UFO sighting from my neck of the woods where a TV News helicopter filmed something odd.

UFO Over SacramentoNews10 often receives calls from those who spotted something unusual in the night skies. It’s not nearly as common for those calls to be backed up by our own Air10.

While shooting Friday Night Football highlights over Sacramento, Air10 pilot Ed Georges and FNF correspondent Angel Cardenas spotted a strange set of lights flying over their helicopter.

“I know what aircraft lighting looks like and this was definitely something different,” Georges said. “It looked almost like a scrolling message on a blimp to the naked eye. I was at 1,200 feet and it was considerably higher.”

Georges said he and Cardenas manuevered the helicopter to get a better look at the lights through Air10’s Power Zoom camera.

“(Angel and I) were both amazed at the odd lights and movement. I started flying toward it, but it began to fade away and disappeared to the southeast,” Georges said. “Not knowing the size of the object, I couldn’t determine how far away we were, but I believe it was some distance away as the image was fuzzy even through the PowerZoom camera.”

Not long after their sighting, several callers phoned the News10 newsroom to report seeing the same phenomenon.

When contacted, Federal Aviation Adminstration and Sacramento International Airport spokespeople said they hadn’t heard anything about the object and had no idea what the craft could be. A Travis Air Force Base representative said the base had no aircrafts that could be confused with a UFO.

So what is it? Take a look at the video and weigh in with your own verdict.

    Sorry to burst the UFO bubble, but it was not aliens on Friday night. It was in fact American Air Lights advertising for the new Big O Tires store. Thanks for all the buzz though 😉 If you want to see more examples, follow this link: http://www.americanairlights.com/video

    We’ve been flying messages like this for over 30 years. We do messages for birthdays, welcoming home troops and marriage proposals as well. If you want YOUR name up in lights, contact us through the website. http://www.americanairlights.com

    Xeno- The News10 chopper is equipped with a very nice camera system with supporting, balancing gyros. Got to check it out one time when it first went on air (stationed at Sacramento Exec Airport)
    I’ve seen the Big O “blimp” before, and any good news organization woulda done some homework before putting this one on-air; that is, if the corporate ownership of News10 (USA Today-Gannett) hadn’t severely gutted its news operation with ridiculous budget cuts, and dizzying layoffs. That being said, between the “sighting” and the time the story aired, only an hour or two had elapsed. Not much time for the FAA or TRACOM to get back to a news organization to set things straight (the chopper was out Friday night wasting valuable money shooting high school football games.
