The woman was first spotted by a ramp employee who was pushing back United Airlines Flight 446, which was departing Chicago for Charlotte, North Carolina. The employee apprised Flight 446's crew of a woman on the tarmac, and notified security. It is believed that both the pilot and co-pilot also witnessed the woman levitate as high as 60 feet off the tarmacadam.
Several independent witnesses outside of the airport also saw the woman. One described a human-shaped shadow hovering over the airport which was "obviously not clouds." According to this witness, nearby observers gasped as the shadow shot through the clouds at high velocity, leaving a clear blue hole in the cloud layer.
The hole reportedly seemed to close itself shortly afterward.
The FAA stance concludes that the sighting was caused by a weather phenomenon and that the agency would not be investigating the incident.
