For the second time in one month, a Chinese airport was shutdown because of UFO sightings. Â Three flights to Baotou from Beijing and Shanghai had to be held from landing until the UFO disappeared. Â TwoÂ additionalÂ flights we diverted to a different airports in Ordos and Taiyuan. Â In addition to the flights being diverted, the airport was also shut down for an entire hour before the UFO hovering in the sky over China suddenly vanished. Â This marks the eight UFO sighting in China since June.
YES orÂ NO
Workers at the Hohhot Air Traffic Management Bureau observed with instruments an unidentified flying object (UFO) 40 kilometers east of Baotou, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region at 8 p.m. on Sept. 11.
“The airport received a notice from the Hohhot Air Traffic Management Bureau about the appearance of an UFO. To guarantee security, the aircraft heading for the airport had to land at secondary airports. Otherwise, it may have led to collisions,” said Ms. Luo, from the Baotou Airport.
China has not been alone in experiencing mysterious, sometimes unexplained UFO phenomena. A press event took place late last month where former U.S. military airmen claimed that UFOs had somehowÂ disabled nuclear missiles at U.S. and British silos.
Officials have said that the recent UFO sighting in June (where the airport was also shutdown) were actually military tests taking place at a nearby militray base.
There is no word fromÂ officialsÂ of weather the most recent sighting was anotherÂ militaryÂ experiment.
