In April, two UK pilots observed a huge UFO over the ChannelIslands, and their observations were corroborated bywitnesses on the planes. One of the pilots described theobject: "It was a very sharp, thin yellow object with agreen area. It was 2,000ft up and stationary. At first, Ithought it was the size of a 737. But it must have been muchbigger because of how far away it was. It could have been asmuch as a mile wide."
Aurigny Airlines pilot Ray Bowyer first reported the object,and his report was corroborated by a pilot for anotherregional air carrier, Blue Airlines. The object was alsoseen by two Blue Airlines passengers, Kate and John Russell.
Paul Kelly, 31, the air traffic controller who was on duty,said that both pilots made similar reports, but that theobject had not been recorded by Channel Islands air trafficradars because it was stationary, and the radars areprogrammed to filter out stationary objects, which are notexpected to appear in the sky.
The observation was cited as a "near miss" and has beenreported in the current issue of the Pilot Magazine, UK,according toThisis London.
Strangely, the sighting has also been the object of atreatment bythespoof.com, no doubt in an effort to frighten other pilots into keeping their mouths shut.
