We live in an age where logic mostly reigns supreme over superstition and crazy talk about Bigfoot, UFOs, and of course, the existence of sparkly vampires with six-packs. [firstpara]
Over the years we’ve learned to push aside stories about modern creatures of myth with a resounding “Nonsense!”
Or so we thought.
Yesterday, October 4, 2010, international news outlet, The Epoch Times reported that an airport located in Baotou in Inner Mongolia had to shut down because a UFO had been spotted in the area.
Rather than risk incoming flights from crashing into the alleged UFO, the airport waited until the UFO disappeared before allowing three flights to finally land.
The arriving flights were instructed to just circle around the airport as they waited for the “flat and tubular” objects to return to whatever planet they came from.
Weirdly enough, this was not the first time that an airport in China had to cease operations momentarily because of the same reason.
On July 8, the UFOs visited Xiaoshan Airport in Hangzhou, and again on September 21, this time at the Beijing Capital International Airport.
Along with these airport incidents, there have been a couple other UFO sightings in China in a span of just four months, from June to September.
The frequency of the UFO sightings eventually led a U.S. news outlet, ABC News, to finally pick up the stories. In their report, speculations and theories as to what those UFOs ranged from paranoid to logical. One anonymous Internet user proclaimed that "It is a hidden U.S. bomber flying toward China," while meteorological claimed that it was merely an airplane that reflected light.
Here’s the video of the incident, so you can judge for yourself:
