Is it a plane? No a UFO, captain…


AN AIRLINE pilot claims, he spotted two UFOs the size of Boeing jets in the English Channel.
Capt Ray Bowyer took off from the island of Alderney to Southampton when he and other passengers noticed the strange objects in the sky over Guernsey. 'I was pretty shook up by the whole thing. This is not something you see every day it was scary,' he said. 'They were the size of Boeing 737s.' Other aircraft in the sky also noticed the strange sighting on Monday which has sparked much chatter on UFO websites.
One stargazer wrote: 'Guernsey's reputation as a tax haven is obviously spreading through the universe.' But John Spencer, deputy chairman of the British UFO Research Association, said he was sceptical. 'These types of sightings have been reported by pilots since the 1940s.'

Squadron of UFOs is filmed chasing an air force plane

By Tim Utton - Science Reporter


IT was the moment an air force pilot realised he was having a close encounter.
Cruising at ll,000ft, he and his crew suddenly found themselves surrounded by unidentified flying objects.
Video footage apparently shot from the plane shows a squadron of the brightly shining 'craft', moving and turning rapidly in the late evening sky.
We are not-alone' This is so weird,' one of the pilots can be heard shouting on the tape, which has just been released by the Mexican government.
The crew of the Mexican Air Force reconnaissance plane captured this fascinating image after switching on a camera after the mysterious objects were picked up by radar.
Crewmen filmed the 11 UFOs in the skies over southern Campeche state, a defence department spokesman confirmed.
The 15-minute videotape shows the bright objects, some sharp points of light and others like large headlights, moving rapidly Lieutenant Mario Adrian Vazquez, the infra-red equipment operator, said: 'I couldn't say what it was - but I think they're completely real.'
Lt Vazquez insisted that there was no way to alter the recorded images.
Radar operator Lt German Marin added: 'Was I afraid? Yes.
'A little afraid because we were facing something that had never happened before;'
The footage is among the most credible evidence yet that extra-terrestrials may have found us, it was claimed last night.
Richard Lawrence, British UFO expert and author, said: 'There has been video and radar evidence of UFO activity for decades, but this is the first time that it has been openly
confirmed by government and military officials, 'The Mexican government's honesty and openness about UFOs is to be welcomed by all ufologists.
Let's hope that other governments will follow Mexico's fine example - including our own.'
The lights were filmed on March 5 by pilots using infra-red equipment.
They appeared to be flying at an altitude of 11,480ft. and surrounded the jet as it conducted anti-drug trafficking duties. Three of the objects showed up on the plane's radar - then a further eight revealed themselves when crew men switched on their
infra-red camera.
At this point, the sur veillance plane gave chase.
The plane's captain, Major Magdaleno Castanon, said he became nervous when
the objects turned back and surrounded his plane.
He said: 'There was a moment when the screens showed they were behind us, to
the left and in front of us, It was at that point that I felt a bit tense. I believe they could feel
we were pursuing them.'
When the jets stopped following the objects, they disappeared, he said.
