New Mexico Cruise missile test gone astray perhaps??
Reading this report of AA pilot reporting seeing a cylindrical object, I am wondering if the likes of a Navy BGM-109 being tested from White Sands or even further afield from YPG could have gone astray..


‚American Airlines Flight 2292, an Airbus A320 flying between Cincinnati and Phoenix on February 21st, 2021, had a bizarre close encounter with what its crew described as a "long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile" moving extremely fast over the top of their aircraft as it cruised along at 36,000 feet and 400 knots. The incident occurred over the remote northwest corner of New Mexico, to the west of the tiny town of
Des Moines. ‚

‚At approximately 1:19 CST on the Albuquerque Center frequency of 127.850 MHz or 134.750 MHz (recording wasn't frequency stamped) the pilot reported: "Do you have any targets up here? We just had something go right over the top of us - 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."

You were saying lol

Funnily enough in one episode of Roswell , this - Christina‘s number 1 hit is blasting from Maria DeLuca Volkswagen Passat as she is driving at speed down the Highway.
