Spotted over the Hangzhou Airport

Shanghaiist reports on a UFO sighting in China that resulted in the shutting down of an airport. (The loudspeaker announcement must have been interesting.)

On Wednesday, Hangzhou’s Xiaoshan airport was shut down for about an hour while airport authorities scrambled to figure out what unidentified flying contraption was hovering on their radars.

According to a story that first appeared in Zhejiang Online, the UFO showed up on radar a little past 8:30pm. Suddenly, airport personnel saw a “shining light” in the air, later confirmed by passengers that were flying at the time.

Some have theorized it was a private jet [or] a piece of rocket debris. At least one official has said it has a “military connection” – which is why more details of the incident can not be divulged.

    it's obviously swamp gas. or a lighthouse or something. Clearly. we know there is nothing to this UFO thing because only drunk rednecks see them. and pilots. and astronauts. and members of the government. and presidents. and scientists.

    Reoprts just in, This is in fact a hoax and a case of mistaken identity as a local dinner party had set off some western style “american lanterns” the kind they use in religuous and cultural moon festivals to ward of evil spirits.

    A false-flag alien invasion is a probable catalyst for imposing Global Fascism in its full glory with all of the Martial Law and Slave Labor that anyone could possibly dream of. See you at the Camp!
