For the third time this year, a UFO has been reported in China that temporarily shut down an airport in Baotou in Inner Mongolia last month and delayed the landing of three planes by nearly an hour.
China’s Xiaoshan Airport was also closed down for a few days in July of this year due the disturbing presence of acircling the skies and another such sighting was reported earlier in the summer in Hong Kong.
The most recent UFO was sighted at 8 pm about four kilometers (about 2 ½ miles) east of the Baotou airport. Two flights, one from Beijing and the other from Shanghai, were diverted to neighboring airports.
“The airport received a notice from the Hohhot AirManagement Bureau about the appearance of a UFO. To guarantee security, the aircraft heading for the airport had to land elsewhere. Otherwise, it could have led to collisions,” according to a Baotou airport spokeswoman.
Some sources believe that the sightings of UFOs in the two airports could be related to a Chinese military aircraft. The problem is that no one can say for sure, one way or the other, which leaves a rather unsettling cloud hanging in the air.
