Mystery shrouds objects seen floating above Mumbai airport

Mumbai, May 25 (IANS) Mystery continues to shroud four-five small objects that were spotted flying above Mumbai airport on Saturday, with multiple agencies, including the police, probing the matter, official sources said on Monday.

The objects were first sighted by a Jet Airways pilot shortly before he was to take off around 6 p.m.. He alerted the Air Traffic Control (ATC).

The ATC instructed the pilot to abort take off. He exited the main runway and later again came in the queue and finally took off after sometime when the objects seemed to have disappeared after a few minutes.

Despite speculation in various quarters of the objects being remote-controlled parachutes, radio controlled mini-gliders, Chinese lanterns, balloons, etc., official sources preferred to term them simply as ‘unidentified objects’ seen floating for a few minutes in the airport airspace.

They were espied moving at a height of around 150 feet and in a south-north direction countering strong winds blowing from the south-west at that time, pointing to a possibility that they (the objects) were being guided or controlled from terrestrial sources.

The sources declined to speculate on where the objects disappeared, or if they returned on land in the vicinity of the Mumbai International Airport Ltd. (MIAL).

As per available indications, the objects were not picked up by most radars in and around Mumbai, including those belonging to the defence forces.

No agency has lodged a formal complaint with the police so far mainly due to confusion over jurisdiction or territorial issues.

Radio Presenter Spots UFO near Stansted Airport

A RADIO 5 Live sports presenter claims he spotted a UFO circling near to Stansted Airport this morning (Wednesday, August 3).

Mike Sewell told the breakfast show that he saw a “disc-shaped” object hovering above a field as he drove to work at 4.15 am.

“I was driving east cross country, about 15-20 miles from Stansted Airport, 4.15 in the morning, and I saw this big bright light in the sky descending towards the road and as it got close it then banked left and as it banked to the left it went across the countryside,” he said.

“I could see underneath and it wasn’t an airplane and it wasn’t a helicopter. It had several lights flashing all around it and underneath there were at least two large panel lights, like soft white lights, and it just sat or it circled a certain area over the fields.”

Speaking on the radio, UFO expert Timothy Good said he believed the flying object, which he said was “clearly not a conventional aircraft of any type”, could have been from outer space.

“It might well be extraterrestrial, it might well be one of ours,” he said. “I know for a fact that top secret aircraft and spacecraft have been flown by the United States military and by the British military for quite some time now. As Ben Rich said, who developed the stealth aircraft, back in 1993 in the presence of two friends of mine, we now have the technology to go to the stars.”

Asked by presenter Nicky Campbell how that was possible, Mr Good said: “The study of alien crafts which have been recovered and by liaising with actual aliens who have helped us develop this technology.”

Last month, a local family claim they had a close encounter after seeing three mysterious glowing orbs floating in the night sky above Sawbridgeworth, as reported in the Observer.
