Coast Guard UFO Encounter
The witness was stationed aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Spencer a 327 foot ship conducting Ocean Station duty out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The ship was decommissioned in 1974, so the sighting was most likely in the summer of 1973. The conditions were warm, seas calm, and sighting occurred during the night. The witness states, I remember someone saying, “Come on deck, there’s a UFO! The UFO had bright lights that changed color and was checking us out. The UFO would come down hovering above us. We could see portholes and rotated as it hovered as its lights changed color. Then it climb high up in a second becoming very small. Then it seemed to show off, as if it knew we were watching it. It would accelerate across the sky in a split second while doing sharp right angle turns.
There were 140 men aboard the Spencer, and a large number of my fellow crewmen witnessed the UFO. My friend had some state-of-the-art photo equipment who was photographing this UFO. We were on station in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean with all running lights on helping air traffic as usual. Crew members were taking photos of this craft with telephoto lens. I remember I could not wait to see the photos after they were developed, but I never got to see them. The show lasted about an hour and messages of this sighting were sent to Washington, DC.
When we were relieved from Ocean Station Duty, we headed back to Governor’s Island, to Yankee Pier our homeport. As we were docking, I saw quite a few “Men in Black” waiting to board our ship. Usually after docking, we were granted liberty of usually 72 hours but no one was allowed to leave the ship. These “Men in Black interrogated us all one by one for hours. We signed an affidavit, stating we saw nothing and were warned that if we mention this to anyone, we would be gone. We were told not to go to any news media, and try to tell this story. If we did, we would be prosecuting by the government. My friend had all of his photo equipment, pictures, and developing equipment confiscated. Thanks to Peter Davenport and the Filer Files.

7-7-10 XIAOSHAN AIRPORT CHINA
Flights delayed and diverted as a UFO disrupts air traffic over Zhejiang’s provincial capital Hangzhou late on Wednesday, the municipal government said on Thursday. Xiaoshan Airport was closed after the UFO was detected at around 9 pm, and some flights were re-routed to airports in the cities of Ningbo and Wuxi, said an airport spokesman, who declined to be named. The airport had resumed operations, and more details will be released after an investigation, he said. A source with knowledge of the matter, however, told China Daily on Thursday that authorities had learned about the UFO after an investigation but it was not the proper time to publicly disclose the information because there was a military connection, he said, adding that an official explanation is expected to be given on Friday, JULY 9. Inbound flights were diverted to the nearby airports in Zhejiang province’s Ningbo and Jiangsu province’s Wuxi. Outbound flights were delayed for three to four hours. A staff member at the airport’s information desk said the airport had “no idea” how many flights were affected by the closure. At around 11 pm on Wednesday, an official wrote three entries announcing the airport’s closure in his microblog at Sina.com, but they were all soon deleted. He posted an apology at midnight, saying the news had not been confirmed and asking those who had republished his earlier entries to delete them.
