Heads turned to the sky last October when a mystery ‘UFO’ aircraft zoomed at high speed in Oregon.
The plane spooked air traffic control when it was unable to contact or track the plane and it stumped the F-15 fighter jets that were deployed to intercept it.
Recently released audio footage reveals the scramble to identify the mystery UFO aircraft, tracing how the plane appeared out of no where, alarmed pilots in air traffic, and then chillingly disappeared without a trace.
The meaning behind the unidentified flight spotted at 4:30p.m. on October 25, 2017 still remains a mystery.
Audio tapes obtained by The Drive reveal the hours of confusion that followed after the aircraft zipped across the sky.

A white unmarked ‘UFO’ plane flew over Oregon on October 25, 2017 and then disappeared without a trace, baffling air control officials that fruitlessly tried to contact and track it
Three Oregon F-15 Eagles fighter jets (above) were then deployed to intercept the aircraft, but even with their high tech senors, the fighters could not find a trace of the plane
The plane was last spotted near Portland International Airport (above) by airline pilots
Alarm was raised to Oakland Center Sector 31, near the border of Oregon about the plane.
The aircraft traveled over Crater Lake towards the Willamette Valley and was moving ‘very fast at 37,000 feet’ when it was first detected.
The Radar Operator raised concern saying, ‘You know that target south of the boundary there? The 0027 code moving very fast at 37,000?’
The Oakland Center Controller said: ‘Oh, look at that thing!’
‘Yeah, it’s crazy,’ the operator said.
The Oakland Center Control was stumped on the origins of the plane.
‘Huh, um and you don’t have anything on him?’ the control center asked.
‘I’ve got nothing,’ the operator said.
Officials followed the plane on the radar but were unable to track it or contact it as the aircraft did not have a working transponder.
Later a United Airlines flight called in, saying that the large white plane had no markings on it to identify itself.
‘Hey it’s United 612. It’s just a white speck out there. We can see it, but there’s no identification on it. Just uh, that it’s there,’ the airline pilot reported.
Air control are clueless about the meaning of the craft in the extensive audio.
The plane dubbed the ‘intruder’ then quickly dropped off the radar.
According to the Oakland Center Control, the plane first appeared between sectors 13 and 14 in California before speeding off to Oregon
The plane was first spotted between sectors 13 and 14 but then flew off towards Oregon near sector 3
After it dropped off the radar, pilots began to report their shock at seeing the white unrecognizable plane in the middle of their traffic lanes.
The sightings of the plane continued for a half hour and stretched hundreds of miles.
The Drive said that the same report was called in over and over again: a white aircraft was seen cruising around 37,000 feet but it was to far away to decipher the type of plane it was or see markings upon it.
Just 27 minutes after the plane was spotted, F-15 fighter jets from Portland were deployed from Portland International Airport in an attempt to find and intercept the vehicle.
The controller on the audio repeatedly asks airlines to check their systems for the nearby aircraft in an attempt to position the mystery UFO, but by that point the plane was no where to be found.
When the jets were sent out, one craft asks for a location on the aircraft.
The air control agent reported no track on the craft saying it must be in ‘stealth mode or something’.
Despite powerful sensors and speed, they couldn’t locate the craft.
The last time it was spotted was by pilots descending into Portland International Airport.
The unexplained aircraft posed danger to air traffic and may be of potential national security concern.
After the plane was lost the FAA Seattle Center Official said, ‘Where this guy ended up we don’t know’.
‘The fighter scramble they went out looking around a little bit but we, you know, we lost anybody having sight of the aircraft,’ the official added.
‘Wow that’s weird,’ another official said.
‘It’s really weird yeah,’ the speaker responded.
