Location: O’Hare International Airport, Chicago, IL
Witnesses: One

Current Status: Under Investigation

I had just left work at the USPS Sorting Facility at O’Hare Airport at about 11:00 P.M. on Thursday the 24th of September and was walking out to my car when I saw something standing at the far end of the parking where I usually park . At first I thought it was a very tall person with a long coat. As I got closer to my car, I unlocked my car, which caused my headlights to come on. My headlights hit the person standing about 20-25 feet from my car causing it to turn and look right at me.

I saw that this was not some person but some red eyed and what appeared to be a coat were actually wings which it spread out as it turned to look at me. At first I thought it was some kind of very, very large bird but I’ve never seen any bird that stood almost 7 feet tall. I’m 5’4 and this thing looked taller than me by at least 2 feet. This thing then started making some type of chirping sound, almost a half chirp and half click like someone was clicking their tongue but much much faster. It then made some type of screeching sound and took off running toward me, it got to within 10 feet of me and took off into the air and flew above me.

I was screaming hysterically as I crouched down behind cars open door and I dived into my car headfirst. I was in a near panic as I tried to start the car, close and lock the doors and turn on my interior lights. I started my car and took off out of the parking lot and flew down the road till I hit the main road. I got home and told my husband who also works at the same facility and he was the one who told me about the sightings of this thing. I was scared shitless and hope I never see this thing again. This thing is roaming around the area, scaring people half to death, I hope the airport people decide to do something about this thing someday.

Investigators Notes:

An investigator with UFOCH has reached out to the witness and is awaiting a response. Once additional information is obtained, it will be be posted to the UFO Clearinghouse website within 24-48 hours. Field investigation is pending.

This investigation is still in the preliminary stages and information will be posted as it is made available.


The witness was at first reluctant to discuss the issues after the initial report but did finally agree to meet with the UFOCH investigator and recount her encounter on the night of September 24, 2020.

The witness is a 17 year veteran of the USPS and has worked at the O’Hare sorting facility for the last 15 years. She advised that on the night in question, she was walking toward her car after her shift had ended and was checking her text messages on her phone as she made the familiar walk to her vehicle. I asked her if there were other people around to which she answered no, as most of the other employees leave right at shift change and she usually sticks around to take care of the transition.

As the witness walked to the car, she noticed what looked like a very tall man at the very far end of the parking lot that she reasonably thought was one of her fellow co-workers. As she walked toward the car, she deactivated the car alarm which automatically turned on the car headlights. The headlights illuminated the person at the other end of the parking lot and it turned toward her revealing a pair of bright red eyes and it spread what looked like a giant pair of wings. When asked how big the wings were, she could not give me a definitive answer but guesstimated that they must have been between 10-12 feet across. The being then began making a series of clicking noises which she described as a cross between a click and a chirping sound. The being then let out a loud metallic screech that she described to the investigator sounded like the brakes on a large truck or train.

The witness then described that it began running toward her in these very long strides at which it took off into the air. When I asked her to describe the being and how it looked or flew she said she did not look up at it as she was too busy flinging the car door open and diving into her car while screaming. The witness stated that she started her car and turned on the interior lights all while trying to keep her wits about her. When the investigator asked her if she saw which way the creature flew away to she advised that “Didn’t care where it flew off to and she was not gonna stick around to find out” The witness advised that she left the area in a hurry and did not  slow down till she had left the area and had joined the main road and traffic.

The witness was hesitant to elaborate any further and the investigator decided to close the interview and thanked the witness for her time.

It is the investigators opinion that this sighting merits further investigation and that an attempt to reach out to employees of this USPS facility be made to see if any other sightings can be obtained.

  6. Chicago, and in particular, O’Hare, is covered with security cameras – especially dark parking lots. Surely the USPS could review the parking lot security footage. For a wing or a shadow. If the creature isn’t captured on cameras, her car speeding frantically out of the exit certainly would have been. How did the creature enter the area? How long was the time between her co-workers leaving, the next shift entering, and her leaving? Was it captured on video during that time? Did she report this to her employer? Has she returned to work and had to walk to her car at night since? Has she requested a security guard be present at her nightly shift change as would be completely justified after such a harrowing encounter? If you’re wondering, this is what an investigation sounds like.
