AIR FORCE MILITARY SPY PLANE SPOTS A UFO OVER CALIFORNIA
Kelly Johnson was known as one of the world’s leading aircraft designers. He was in charge of designing the U-2 spy plane for the CIA.
On December 16, 1953, a Lockhead WV2 aircraft was being flown by one of Johnson’s test crews over Long Beach California, at the same time that Johnson and his wife were on the ground in Agoura, California.
Johnson, his wife, and the flight crew all spotted a UFO at almost the same time. Because the plane and Johnson’s location were both known, the location of the unknown object could be triangulated exactly.
The object spotted by the observers was a 200 foot long, black craft, similar to the military’s “Flying Wing.” The UFO was seen for 6-7 minutes as it hovered over the Santa Barbara Channel.
The W-2B decided to get a closer look, and proceeded toward the UFO, which was about 15,000 feet altitude. All the while, Johnson was observing the UFO with his binoculars.
He, along with the crew in flight, saw the UFO take off at a great speed. It headed out over the Pacific. It reached 90 miles altitude as it disappeared from view.
Later, in Johnson’s official report, he stated: “I am now more convinced than ever, that such devices exist, and I have some highly technical converts in this belief.”
After looking over the case, the US Air Force concluded that Johnson, his wife, and the airplane crew had seen a lenticular cloud.
Although the government thought that Johnson could not tell the difference between a cloud and a structured, flying object, they continued to employ him for many years to come, designing some of the most secretive, cutting-edge planes of his era.
KENS NOTE: I guess lenticular clouds take off at great speeds. The Air Force and the Press must think we are pretty stupid. These are two of the biggest UFO debunkers known to man.

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. Report 2 China has reported a ”Smart UFO” in the skies over Hangzhou, capital of east China’s Zhejiang Province. Some are saying it was a display of Indian Air Force capabilities to scare the Chinese. Other call it hoax. The fast hovering UFO behaved like being controlled from the remote sensing satellite. The municipal government in China have revealed that an unidentified flying object (UFO) recently disrupted air traffic over Hangzhou, capital of east China’s Zhejiang Province. The UFO disappeared fast after being detected by the Chinese Air Defense. The Chinese Air Force could not capture the UFO. Xiaoshan Airport was shut down after the unidentified flying object was detected at around 9 pm, reports Xinhua. The flights were even rerouted to airports in Ningbo and Wuxi cities, said an airport spokesman. Interestingly the airport operation went back to normal after the UFO vanished all of a sudden.
