Two commercial airline pilots claim to have seen mysterious objects flying near their planes over Ireland before deviating quickly. Both experienced pilots were flying at an extremely high altitude on scheduled flights when they witnessed the «UFOs». The sightings were on the southwestern Irish coast.
The first sighting was recorded by a British Airways pilot flying from Montreal to Heathrow over County Kerry last Friday. «He was moving very fast. It appeared on our left side and swerved rapidly to the north. We saw a bright light and then it disappeared at a very high speed. We were wondering what it could be, "said the pilot. The second sighting was made by a Virgin Atlantic pilot who told the air traffic controllers that the objects were very close to their position. The pilot added that they were with two bright lights that seemed to scale at an astronomical speed.
Later, there was a third commercial airplane of Norwegian, which traveled from New York to Shannon, who also warned of these sightings. The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) has initiated a research on the appearance of strange sightings. In a statement, the authority said: "Following the reports of a small number of aircraft on Friday, November 9, unusual air activity, The IAA has submitted a report. It will be investigated according to the normal process of confidential investigation of events ". On October 27, a Californian man recorded a video of some lights that appeared over the San Diego sky that could have come from UFOs because of the rarity of these.
