UFO disrupts air traffic in Hangzhou China for one hour

The unidentified flying object that disrupted air traffic in Hangzhou, China for an hour recently remains, well, unidentified. Some media have speculated the UFO might be a private aircraft, based on the increasing number of privately-owned aircraft in Zhejiang province. A staff member at Xiaoshan Airport in Hangzhou said a twinkling object was first spotted over the city’s sky around 8:30 pm on Wednesday. However, the object did not show up on the airport’s radar. Xiaoshan Airport was then closed at 8:45 pm over security concerns, and only resumed operation at 9:41 pm.

A dozen inbound flights were diverted to nearby airports and six outbound flights were delayed for three to four hours. A source with knowledge of the matter, however, told China Daily earlier that the object had a military connection.
