Like something out of one of L. Ron Hubbard’s science fiction novels… From the Daily News:

Close encounters of the Scientology kind:

Pilots aboard three passenger planes in the vicinity of London’s Gatwick Airport late last year reported seeing a pair of “flat, silver discs” hovering near the UK headquarters of the Church of Scientology.

Air traffic controllers also said that they saw six UFOs on radar screens before the objects disappeared, according to a report issued last week by the UK’s Airprox Board.

The board examines reports of air traffic safety violations in UK airspace and recommends safety measures. Last week’s report failed to find an explanation for the pilot sightings from last Dec. 30 at about 9 a.m. It did describe how a Boeing 777 pilot raised the alarm at 8:53 a.m. after spotting “two flat silver discs”over the Scientology headquarters in East Grinstead minutes from touchdown at Gatwick. The three pilots on the flightdeck said that they saw the objects about 100 feet below them, moving slowly or stationary, according to the report.

Minutes later a Boeing 767 and an Airbus 319 saw the same “saucer-like” shapes hovering about 1,000 feet above ground. The 777 crew said they looked “man-made” and “toy-like.”…

    Well, Xenu traded up on spacecraft from a DC-8 design (though 75 million years old) to something better suited to whatever ever they do when they just hover. Either that or it’s that pesky 5th (or maybe 6th) Marcabian Invasion fleet. Srsly, since pilots were involved w/ the report, I very much believe them.
    /$cientology wants to sell you a “bridge”… no, really!
