UFO Reported Near Bush Airport

by a Continental Airlines pilot on a flight from Bush
Intercontinental Airport. That pilot called federal authorities,
who launched an investigation.

Continental flight 1544 was bound for Cleveland out of Bush
airport. It had just taken off around 10:15am Monday, when

One-hundred-and-forty-eight passengers and 6 crew members were
onboard the Boeing 737. Continental tells us the flight landed

rocket. Some can fly as high as 10,000 feet. But you need FAA
