The FBI is "aware" an American Airlines pilot reported seeing something unusual fly overhead at a high rate of speed, reports ABC Journal.  

The audio was recorded on a flight from Cincinnati to Phoenix on Feb. 21 when the plane was flying over the northwest corner of New Mexico.

"Do you have any targets up here?" the pilot asked air traffic control in a radio transmission captured by Steve Douglass, a news photographer for Fox 23 in Texas.

"We just had something go right over the top of us," the pilot said. "I hate to say this, but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing – moving really fast right over the top of us."

American Airlines officials confirmed the audio was recorded but directed media outlets to the FBI.

"The FBI is aware of the reported incident," the agency replied to a Journal inquiry. "While our policy is to neither confirm nor deny investigations, the FBI works continuously with our federal, state, local and tribal partners to share intelligence and protect the public."

The Pentagon's UFO unit is set to make some records public in the coming months as part of the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021.
