I was filling in at Station #2 On the fourth of July weekend, we were outside in the patio area talking and watching the distant fireworks display. As we talked we heard what sounded like a very, very loud screeching noise, it sounded like brakes on a large truck. We didn’t pay it any mind because it was probably a semi or airport maintenance vehicle that was nearby. There is a cargo terminal within sight of the station so we didn’t give it a second thought till we heard a series of clicking, rapid, loud clicking followed by that sound again. It was then that one of the others guys saw something and said “what in the fuck is that?” We looked up to see a figure in the sky, it looked like a human with wings and it had a pair of bright orange eyes. One of the firefighters said it was the infamous “Batman” and said it was seen all over the airport and the surrounding suburbs. It was only visible for about 5 seconds before it flew out of sight toward north.
This is part of the ongoing investigation looking into the initial report of a Chicago Firefighters sighting of a winged humanoid at Chicago O’Hare International airport. The witness was able to convey sightings from fellow firefighters at his station that were told to him the night of his sighting. They are being presented separately and attempts are being made to contact the original witnesses of each report. As the investigation progresses, updates will be posted to the website and passed along to the members of the Phantoms and Monsters Fortean Research Team.
