Source in China cites ‘military connection’ for UFO sightingby Cherlyn Gardner Strong on Jul. 08, 2010, under General Paranormal, Life, UFO News, UFOs
The Internet was buzzing today with the news that a UFO caused flights to be diverted and delayed in China.
Control tower officers detected the unidentified flying object with long-range visual instruments. They immediately ordered several incoming flights to land at airports in neighboring Ningbo and Wuxi, delaying passengers for nearly four hours, the report said.They used radar to monitor the position of the object. Persons on the ground also saw the object in the sky.
A photo from taken from the ground can be seen here.
As the drama unfolded, an employee at Sina.com made three posts on the web portal, which were immediately picked up by news outlets around the world.
The entries were since deleted, with the Sina.com employee asking those who republished his entries to delete them.
An undisclosed source with knowledge of the incident stated that “it was not the proper time to publicly disclose the information because there was a military connection.” He added that “an official explanation [about the incident] is expected to be given on Friday.”
With the incident coinciding with the 63rd anniversary of the Roswell Incident, it would surprise no one if the object in the sky turned out to be a weather balloon.
