I would like to start a new feature, that of UFO sightings from yesteryear…with a brief description on this blog, and links to relevant websites, with indepth discussions.

To kick us off i will start with:

1 The Belgian Triangles

belg89Dates: November 1989 – April 1990 [Belgian Authorities recieved over 2500 reports on Triangular UFOs].

The RBAF (Royal Belgian Air Force) decided to co-operate/work with SOBEPS (Local UFO Research Group= Society Of Belgian Studies of Celestial Phenomena), with SOBEPS reporting from ground level, whilst RBAF would attempt to track and intercept.

They never intercepted them, as the UFOs were far too quick for the F-16s.

English: Belgian Air Force F-16 at the Wadding...

Triangular UFOs- what were they? Explanations for this, were that the USAF, may have been testing its stealth aircraftF117A fighters and B-2 bombers.

However, F-16s can fly faster than stealth aircraft, so why no interceptions, and why were the UFOs more agile.

***Third instalment of Uk UFO Files by MOD available to download NOW (march 21st 2009) ***

Posted by dandare on March 22, 2009

secretfileThe third instalment of the UFO files, covering the years 1989 to 1993, are available to be downloaded online from the MOD, at the National Archives website ( seven to be made available to download over a 3 year period).

The Ministry Of Defence will make these available to be downloaded for the next month only…. then a fee will need to be paid to download them after this date. So please go and download them as soon as possible please ( i am however, working on placing the files on a downloadable site, to make available to all, but this is a work in progress).

ufo-headerThe download page is available from http://ufos.nationalarchives.gov.uk/ .

The files contain a wide range of UFO-related documents covering the years 1987–1993. If you want to find out more about close encounters over Heathrow Airport, alien abductions, stray satellites – and what the UK Government thought of it all – then this is the place to be. The files are in PDF format ” (extract from article).

A brief description of the files can be seen here .

I will also add media + video  links to this as and when available.

Dr David Clarke’s post ” National Archives release UFO files #3 ” (posted 21st march, 2009)

What’s more, it’s clear from the scribbles visible on these papers that details of the individual sightings they contained were entered into a computerised database which DI55 were secretly using to search for patterns in sighting data. (See DEFE 31/176/1, pages 337 onwards). I hope to post more on this topic later ” (extract from article).

Telegraph ” Revealed: How the government probed Britain’s greatest UFO mystery ” (posted 21st march 2009)

ufo_1370335c The files also show that officials had planned to study systematically a sample of more than 100 unexplained sightings in the hope that they might be able to provide a rational explanation of what was happening. But defence chiefs subsequently blocked the move for fear it would be a public relations disaster ” (extract from article).

Telegraph “ UFO alien sketches include banana with dangling limbs ” (posted 22nd march, 2009)

The Guardian ” New UFO secrets are revealed in MOD files ” 22nd march, 2009)

The most intriguing incident involving such a craft occurred at 9pm on 4 August 1990, at Calvine, a remote hamlet near Pitlochry in Scotland. According to the brief details released by the MoD, witnesses saw a diamond-shaped UFO hovering for about 10 minutes before it disappeared upwards at high speed. During the incident, Harrier jump jets were seen making a number of low-level passes. Colour photographs reveal both the UFO and at least one of the jets ” (extract from article).

The Times “ Is that a flying saucer? No, it’s a stealth bomber“(posted 22nd march, 2009)

At the end of the cold war, the Ministry of Defence was worried that America was developing mysterious planes but not telling its closest ally. Staff at department DI55 of the Defence Intelligence Staff logged and investigated hundreds of sightings by pilots, air-traffic controllers and private individuals who believed they had seen an alien presence ” (extract from article). Also see Times archive here .

Scotland on Sunday ” Close encounters of Pitlochry kind ” (posted 22nd march, 2009)

” (extract from article).

The Australian “ UFOs or the old spy in the sky trick? ” (posted 22nd march,2009 )

The files settle a long-standing UFO conspiracy theory on the death of American fighter pilot Captain William Schaffner during an exercise over the North Sea in 1970. To the distress of his family, some have claimed that officials covered up a sinister incident possibly involving a UFO. The files include the RAF’s official inquiry into the crash, which concluded Schaffner’s Lightning fighter had brushed the sea during a delicate, low-speed manoeuvre. When he tried to eject, the cockpit canopy remained stuck because of poor maintenance, and Schaffner was believed to have drowned ” (extract from article). Similar facts to those above.

The MoD said it recorded each sighting to help ministers answer questions from MPs in Parliament – but they were always kept on paper. Notes from March 1988 show that the plan for a full computerised database was spiked. A memo sent to staff said it “contravened” statements from ministers saying UFOs did not pose a threat to the UK and resources would not be diverted to investigate incidents ” (extract from article).

The Sunday Mercury ” UFO pilot death accidental says Ministry Of Defence ” (posted 22nd march, 2009)

Softpedia.com “ UK release archive UFO files ” (posted 23rd march, 2009)

uk-releases-archive-ufo-files-2Around 1992, on a coastal road in Louth, Lincolnshire, several persons witnessed what they termed a UFO sighting. Reportedly, many of them stopped their cars, and stepped out of the vehicles in order to analyze the large, triangular object that was looming overhead, and which sported three lights on its body. When the crowd got too big, the craft simply zipped away, at more than 500 mph, towards the Northwest ” (extract from article).

Daily Mail ” Aliens? No, just the pentagon playing with its latest toys ” (posted 23rd march, 2009)

article-1163909-040a9e49000005dc-93_468x516Their theory was that our American allies had been building and testing stealth aircraft and spy planes without telling us.
In fact, in many cases they were probably right.
A series of simple, almost childish drawings produced by some of the witnesses have just been released from secret files

Daily Mirror “ UFO buzzed RAF jet ” (posted 23rd march, 2009)

The star ” Defence chief’s ignoring UFOs ” (posted 23rd march, 2009)

A SHEFFIELD Hallam University lecturer says newly-released government files show the Ministry of Defence is “not in the slightest bit interested in aliens”.

Videos from previous UK UFO files released in 2008:

Previous instalment posts (from this blog) can be found from Second batch and first batch . Also first batch included in here (for media response).

it is interesting to see how they all respond to the news… some are predictable (and poor) others inaccurate, and uninterested, but a few are more insiteful.

On this Day, 12 years ago …. The ‘Pheonix Lights’.

Posted by dandare on March 13, 2009

phoenix19971As reported by the KTAR.com ” Twelve years later, debate continues over ‘Pheonix lights’ ”  (posted 13th march, 2009). It mentions

The lights were reported March 13, 1997, during a three-hour period, between 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. in a space of about 300 miles, from the Nevada-Arizona line, through Phoenix, to the edge of Tucson. There were two distinct events — a triangular formation of lights seen to pass over Arizona and a series of stationary lights seen in the Phoenix area ” (extract from article).

Below i have added links and videos to this event: There were those that believe that the phenomena was of alien design, those who believed that they were military flares; others who believed they were a stealth blimp. Will we ever find out what they really were ?

For an interesting report on the Pheonix Lights please see  NUFORC.org

At approximately 6:55 p.m. (Pacific) on Thursday, March 13, 1997, a young man in Henderson, Nevada, reportedly witnessed a V-shaped object, with six large lights on its leading edge, approach his position from the northwest and pass overhead.  In his subsequent written report to the National UFO Reporting Center, he described it as appearing to be quite large, approximately the “size of a (Boeing) 747”, and said that it generated a sound which he equated to that of “rushing wind.”  It continued on a straight line toward the southeast and disappeared from his view over the horizon.

This sighting is perhaps the earliest of a complex series of events that would take place during the next 2-3 hours over the states of Nevada, Arizona, and possibly New Mexico, and which would quickly become known as the “Phoenix Lights” sightings.  It involved sightings by tens, or perhaps even hundreds, of thousands of witnesses on the ground, and it gave rise to a storm of controversy over what had caused the event ” (extract from article).

phoenixlights1997modelAlso a very informative article entitled:

ADDENDUM TO THE REPORT ON PHOENIX LIGHT ARRAYS

by Bruce Maccabee, originally posted Sept. 30, 1998; updated to March, 2002 can be seen here ….in which he believes they were flares?

one large article against flares and other usual suspects (ie swamp gas, meteors,ect) being the cause, is steve Lantz  in “The Pheonix Lights…. Debunking the Debunkers“.

Also see Wikipedia here , The Why Files here

and also UFO Evidence here for a wealth of links and information.

UFO websites worthy of a visit

Posted by dandare on March 6, 2009

There is a wealth of websites, blogs and articles out there, on the subject of UFOs and Ufology, and quite a few are ill informed, spread disinformation, or are completely inaccurate.

I would like to point you to places i frequently go to for UFO information, and hope that you can find time to visit as well.

DOCUMENTARY + GOVERNMENT RECORDS ON UFOs:

Majestic 12 has links to document sources, some witnesses, documentary authentication for some of the reports and other links. Recently, the authentication was put into question.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The full condign report can be found here (on the MOD site, 32 files).

Blue Book Archive this is where you can view project blue book on the internet. A valuable resource, it is still ongoing….  it has uncensored microfilm releases, download facility for reports and information about the documents (at this time 10 rolls of film, that are uncensored have been made available).

The Tornado case (1990) an audio cassette recording between British pilots and Dutch military air traffic control.

The Magoniax Project : “Archiving centuries of Fortean phenomena” including UFO related documentation.

Roswell proof up to date information on Roswell, with any new information added to the site.

CIA Freedom of information Act web results for UFO/flying saucer…. see here (242 results). Also here (43 results).

MOD: on UFO documents <–from 2005 for instance Part one. (it frequently changes the website, so links need finding every so often, to keep up to date). Part 2 can be found here and lastly part 3 here . Also Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) can be found here .

Updated information concerning UFO reports made to the British
Ministry of Defence in 1998 – 2006,  has been added to their website……please  see here .

The Black Vault has a wealth of documents you can download here .

Whilst doing my usual rounds of my favorite linked sites, i came across this post by dbreckenridge at the footnote.com site, entitled “UFO in Utah, Comic book style” . It is in relation to the sighting of 1952, which was produced in a comic style, to portray the sighting. Another interesting post can be found here .

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Other entries on UFOs from footnote.com can be found here .

A handy link to Area 51 (groom lake), from FAS (Federation of American Scientists): http://www.fas.org/irp/overhead/groom.htm

It goes into detail about the imagery available, an overview of the area, handy links to other sites (some now are not working), and images of Area 51 through the years, near the bottom of the article.

It seems to have been written in 2000, but still handy for anyone interested in this topic. Imagery of groom lake can be seen here .

Footnote.com

In the article “Free: more than 1 million images from US Revolution to UFOs“, it gives a long list of documents available for free; what we are interested in is Project blue book – Ufo investigations (1947-1969). On this post, some people have already done some work, and posted interesting documents for us to view.

It also has related titles, and a free example list; the source for this is the national Archives . After putting in project blue book into the search engine, i saw a long list of references here & here .Both project blue book and “project blue book” were put in to the search engine-obviously more search terms will be done at a later date.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, here are some fascinating links to references we can see. This includes examples/story entries from footnote members themselves.

ARC results (for reference numbers)

Project Blue Book 1947-1969 click on document on the right to view it like this here. this whole document is worth looking at.

Footnote search for ufos A vast amount of references (over 2,014 in total) and you can look through the documents of these sightings-****worth looking at.

The  spotlight feature on footnote, mentions “X-15 test pilot Joe Walker on record setting flight (past UFOs)“. Also “ufo or photographic anomaly?”, “30 people in Sherman Texas can’t be wrong“… there are others… all these again relate to real documents, that can be seen online.

UFO ORGANISATIONS:

NICAP (National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena), has a wealth of information on UFOs, and is an excellent site.

CUFON (The Computer UFO Network) who “…..strive to present material relating to UFO phenomena and the search for UFO-related government documents obtained through official channels in a fair and accurate manner” (extract from webpage). Of great interest is the link to verified documents and other documents. In the special reports link, there is a good link to reading available. An article on “Do nuclear facilities attract ufos?”  is worth looking at too.

MUFON (Mutual UFO Network), also is great for ufo insights/knowledge; articles on Famous UFO cases, UFO weather maps and UFO fast facts too name but a few things on this  site.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

CUFOS (Centre for UFO Studies) “ >The Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS) is an international group of scientists, academics, investigators, and volunteers dedicated to the continuing examination and analysis of the UFO phenomenon”. Many articles can be found here. My favourites are “we know where you live?” and government ufo documents on the internet .

NUFORC (National UFO Reporting Centre). I usually refer to the Latest ufo reports for information- very handy; there of course, is other good links on this site.

bufora UFO information, mainly to do with Europe…not kept up to date; quite a few ufologists do not hold favour with the organisation, and i can see their point of view.

UFO BLOGS:

Stanton Friedman used to be a nuclear physicist, but became very interested in UFO’s from 1958. Goes into great detail about why he believes UFO’s are visiting earth, but covers other areas as well.

aliencasebook.blogspot.com, aliencasebookfringe.blogspot.com, are both by Atrueoriginall… an excellent up to date resource. Also has forums that you can visit.

ufodna.com is also an excellent resource for UFO information….

For instance, i was searching for Fort Worth, Texas sightings…… at this sight, you can go to the alphabetical listing, and this is what i found here . Admittedly you have to scroll down a long way…. but there are entries from 1897 up until 2005 (i think it only goes up to 2006). It also has a google map location for it (if you click on the individual sightings in the list), but must only be used as a general guide, as each different sighting points to the same spot.

It also has other invaluable data/information; for instance “UFOs like lonely places” and ” the quality of UFO report data

Flying saurcery….presents The Real UFO Project . A great collection of information from the UK; loads of information here.

Hyper.net has an absolute wealth of knowledge on the subject, and is excellent.

UFO shapes and configurations can be found here .

nick redfern’s blog sites; definately worth searching on….some great stuff here.

Nick Pope used to be in the British Government’s UFO project, within the MOD.

Frank warren’s blog: excellent for up to date news, and for good articles on older matters.

thewhyfiles

UFO Review for up to date ufo news.

ufo’s at about.com with different links and info

The Anomalies Network for information on the Men in Black

Useful Astronomy sites:

Space Weather Support at  Solar Terrestrial Dispatch . This has links to an aurora monitor. For instance, an hourly activity report here , astro alerts, global flare reports and so on….. useful to know whats up there.

Heavens Above a vital resource if you need to know what is in the sky…ie sateillites, ect. Can give you all sorts of data, from almost any town/city.

Free to read….. Online UFO books:

NICAP (National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena), have placed authorized full length versions of books, online for everyone to read for free. They are not up to date books, but are worth reading (admitedly i have only read a few, but glancing through the rest, they look interesting . The link to them is here ) .

The books are:

“Alfred Loedding and the great flying saucer wave of 1947″ (by Michael hall and Wendy connors)

“The flying saucers are real” (by Donald Keyhoe ) 1950

W.A. Harbinson wrote a book in 1995, entitled “Projekt UFO: The case for Man-made Flying Saucers”. I remember, it had some well thought arguments, that basically, there is a ruthless technology right here on earth, and the scenario is definately something that people should be aware of, if not necessarily agree on.

For the record, there is some parts of this book, that i do not agree with, but it does get your mind thinking, questioning and so on, and this can only be a good thing.

His website can be found here

The second volume to this, Pheonix: Projekt Saucer Book 2″ is available for free…. at the download page on his site.

This is just a guide to just some of the most reliable websites on the internet…… i will be updating this list on the  UFO LINKS page, when i have time to do so- there are many more worthy of a mention here, but as i have said they will be added constantly to the UFO LINKS page on this site.

I hope some of these websites, find you wanting to know more  about UFO’s, if you are wondering were to get the information. (website links will be updated soon, on the UFO links page, as there are more sites worthy of a mention, that have not been mentioned at all).

Please feel free to comment.

Large increase in Canadian UFO sightings

Posted by dandare on February 24, 2009

ufo-online-soap1Following on from Canada releasing UFO files on the internet (please see article ” Canada also release UFO files to the public ” ),the Canadian press, report that UFO sightings are at a record level.

For instance, at the Canadian Press “ Record number of Canadians report UFO sightings in 2008 ” (posted 20th February 2009).

Canadians reported a record number of UFO sightings last year, according to Winnipeg-based Ufology Research.
The volunteer group of a half-dozen researchers noted 1,004 reported sightings in 2008 – up more than 25 per cent from the previous year and the highest amount in the 20 years Ufology has been keeping track
” (extract from article).

At CBCNEWS.ca “ UFO sightings soar in Canada ” (posted 20th February 2009), a similar article is produced….

Winnipeg Free Press has ” Record year in Canada for UFOs ” (posted 20th February 2009)

Ufology Research began collecting UFO reports in Canada in 1989.  Reports have  been filed by witnesses with government and military agencies, police, civilian UFO groups and online UFO websites ” (extract from article). The article also links to ” The Canadian survey “, which includes the press release that many media outlets covered.

Also ” the 2008surveyessay ” (a PDF file), which mentions that over half of all sightings were simply lights in the sky; it also has alot of interesting data too; for instance, the first UFO sightings of 1989 came to 141. It adds that UFO sightings have generally, been on the increase in Canada from 1998.

Therefore it seems that about 10% of the sightings in 2008 were unexplained; after analysis the percentage became less than 1% …. many of the sightings turned out to be airplanes, stars and planets.

I do believe that there is a genuine amount of people out there, who really want to know what they see at night, without having to be mocked and joked at….. alot of the time there is a simple explanation, after research, however there is always going to those sightings that are truly Unidentified.

tipoftheicebergI have had a very interesting e-mail from Fred Ewers ( who gave permission for his name to be added to this blog post).

Dan, I am a semi-retired man 63 years of age and my wife and I recently (Nov 18,08) had a life changing experience. We saw an awesome display of large lights in the southern sky over Stephenville. I determined the lights to be approximately 8miles south at an altitude of approximately 5,000 ft.

The measurement from left to right was 1 to 2 miles in width. The lights had to be 50+ feet in diameter. First there were three very symmetrical horizontal lights, then a space was skipped and another three identical lights appeared to the west.
The first three went off and then came back on and then they all went off. Entire time lasp was maybe 15 seconds. The lights took on the appearance of port hole windows of a ship if you can imagine with bright light amber fluorescent lights inside. The lights were soft, no glare or prisms as car lights produce. Instantly on and off. Were not military flares as the military wants residents to believe.
We THINK we are anxious to find the origin of these lights.
Thank you.  Fred Ewers  Stephenville, Texas USA

In a later correspondence, Fred mentioned that:

No one at this point in time has the ability to come up with an answer. Who or whatever is responsible will eventually show up and I believe it could change the world. I failed to mention that the exact same lights appeared last Thursday night at about the same time and place. Numerous educated drug free citizens saw them for 20+ seconds“.
My thanks to Fred for coming forward to report this.

ufo-alert444Did you see these lights as well?

Would you like to describe what you saw? and where you were at the time, the size and shape of the UFOs, approximate height, and how long the sighting lasted for; or to even just add a comment here.
At this time, apart from MUFON and some other websites, it is quite hard to find other recent sightings around Stephenville, apart from Matt Collin’s recent sighting.
Whatever is going on, it would be nice to try and get a sensible answer, as too what everyone is seeing…. if the UFOs are military or otherwise.
It is evident however, that whatever it is,  is not going away.

For those of you who think Fred might be making it all up, well all i can say is, that you have to take all you receive in all honesty, until proven otherwise, and i do.

I would also welcome any theories, as too what it is that Fred saw….

Update:

In the  Empire Tribune it mentions activity from last Thursday also (which has only just come to my attention, after writing the above).

(posted 8th Febuary 2009) ” Unidentified freaky lights fill the sky

County residents are once again seeing more than just stars in the night sky. Reports of large, orange lights started pouring into law enforcement Thursday night.
Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant said the county dispatcher reported six calls between 7:33 and 7:44 p.m. coming in from various areas in the county. From Highway 108 to Highway 67 and out to CR 454, callers reported clusters of large orange or amber lights
” (extract from article).
The last paragraph mentions that “ United States Air Force Reserve Major Karl D. Lewis with the 301st Fighter Wing said people most likely saw a training exercise.
“F-16s from the 301st Fighter Wing/457th Fighter Squadron continue to train in the Brownwood Military Operating Area (MOA) during the day and night for training operations. We were conducting our normal training in the Brownwood MOA on February 5th,” Lewis said
” (extract from article).

Is this plausible….. do you believe this as an explanation?

Stephenville UFO Sightings Spring up again in 2009

Posted by dandare on February 3, 2009

Matt Collins, who lives near Walnut Springs (on the North Side), kindly alerted me to a sighting, which was aired on channel33 (the 33tv.com), and which warrants investigation.

 This can be seen on you tube below:

This is not a bad tv report, but it’s a shame that more was not seen of the actual ufo.

Matt has written an account at iWitness Writers (part of  KWTX.COM) ” Possible UFO sighting in Stephenville ” 

At about 7:15pm this evening on the horizon in the North West, there they were 3 hovering bright red lights.

Nothing like I have ever seen.

They would sporadically appear and disappear in different locations in the same part of the sky ” (extract from article). I also noted in the comments section below this, that others also had ufo sightings.

For instance Rogena mentioned, “I too, saw several red lights in a row, slowly moving South to North. I am south of Cisco and would place the objects (during my sighting on Jan. 30, 09, between 7:20 to 7:25 p.m.), to have been possibly North of the Dublin area. I have made a report to MUFON.com “.

Another guy Jonathan ” I have seen these lights a few times around the area. This is no joke. There is some reason why they are choosing this area of Central Texas to visit. I never believed in UFO’s until I saw one near Clairette about 4 months ago that I reported to MUFON“.

Angelia Joiner has also posted ” Mysterious objects reported in skies ” (febuary 2nd, 2009).

Matt said the object appeared about 25 to 30 degrees off the horizon in the northwest sky toward Stephenville. He said he could definitely see a dark mass between the sets of lights.

“I’m not sure how close or far away it was,” Matt said. “It could have been over Chalk Mountain. But, it was definitely in the direction of Stephenville.”

Then on Saturday it was back. This time it was about 9:30 p.m., shortly after Matt appeared on the WB 33 (KDAF-TV of Dallas/Fort Worth) news discussing the sighting he had witnessed two nights before” (extract from article). It also mentions other individual witnesses; it beggers the question, how many more saw it, and didnt report or mention it to anyone; or other sightings on other nights?

ufo-online-soapFor now, it is a UFO (that’s Unidentified Flying Object), clear and simple; however  a secret military Installation is nearby (link to an article i wrote a while back) and could hold an answer to the UFO? 

Thanks to Matt, this has come to the attention of us all, and i wish him good luck with any new sightings.

UFO activity In Germany (january 19th 2009)

Posted by dandare on February 2, 2009

airport-stuttgartThere have been various media sources claiming that German air traffic controllers tracked a UFO, and then fighter pilots were put on red alert.

We start with none other than The Sun, which has “ UFO in German jets alert ” (posted 30th january 2009).

FIGHTER pilots were put on red alert in a UFO drama over Germany, it emerged yesterday.

Air traffic controllers tracked a mystery object speeding across the entire country.

Investigators have checked and excluded conventional aircraft, weather balloons and freak atmospheric conditions ” (extract from article). They however, do not mention what alternatives it could be, among other things (although it is a short article).

SWR. de ( 21st january 2009 ) has ” UFO sightings ” (translated by google)  

germanufojan09Air traffic controllers have the Stuttgart airport on the night of Tuesday is a unknown flying object on the radar screens discovered. The object was near Herrenberg in Stuttgart space flight and have not intruded on radio Sprüche responding, was only on Wednesday.

The German air traffic control in Langen near Frankfurt, said that the unknown flying object was flown to the Czech Republic.Furthermore, analysis of radar records showed that the object before the Stuttgart area is already the area between Freiburg and Lahr must have overflown ” (extract from article).

Another article from the Stuttgarter Nachrichten, posses the possibility that it might have been a drone in  (posted 29th january 2009) ” UFO drone could have been ” (translated from google).

droneThe air traffic at the airport is the “UFO”, it could be but a drone acted.

The air had an unidentified flying object on the radar discovered that was not reported, but also by the pilot of an aircraft was discovered. As later determined, it flew in the direction Welzheim, Dinkelsbühl and Grafenwoehr in Bavaria.

The spokesman for the air traffic control in Filderstadt, Helmut Monday, headed out of a possible starting point in France and the probable landing point from the Czech Republic. He announced that international investigations ” (extract from article).

At GEA. de (posted ?) it has ” UFO alert on Airport land ” (translated by google)

For excitement, on Wednesday has provided the message that an unknown flying object over the country’s airport has been sighted. According to the German air traffic control in Langen near Frankfurt on Wednesday, it could be a microlight aircraft or a drone (unmanned reconnaissance aircraft) acted.

It should not have been reported, nor did it in the air reacts legally prescribed manner. The investigations on the incident were recorded. According to the Stuttgart airport, the operations were not affected ” (extract from article).

Britainnews.net has ” After UK, UFOs hover over Germany ” (posted 30th january 2009). It has taken its source from The Sun media.

If i hear of any new information on this event, i will update it on here.

UpDaTe: 3rd Febuary…. just my thoughts, but so far we seem to have a UFO which was flown from France? (possibly) to the Czech Republic, and could possibly be a microlight or drone (as suggestions above), or my thoughts that it could be a spy plane of some kind, or a drug runner?

If you have any theories please add to the comments…below.
