UFO Shuts Down China Airport: Military Link?Updated: 5 hours 23 minutes ago
(July 9) -- Was it a UFO or secret military aircraft that caused the shutdown of China's Xiaoshan Airport for an hour on Wednesday night? Whatever it was, it was recorded on airport radar at about 9 p.m.
According to the Xinhua news agency, after the unidentified flying object was spotted, airport authorities stopped passengers from boarding planes, and outgoing flights were grounded for an hour in Hangzhou, the capital city of China's Zhejiang province.
When officials closed the airport, incoming flights were rerouted to other airports. So far, no explanation has been offered to explain the UFO.
However, several hours before the airport incident, many Hangzhou residents described seeing a large, brightly lit, elongated object in the sky.
China Daily reported that authorities may know more about the mystery UFO than they're letting on, hinting that there might be a military connection and that a final explanation may be forthcoming today.
