French Nuclear Director Says UFO Was Over His Plant

Someone is very interested in our nuclear plants around the world - interested enough to be flying various aircraft over and around them in plain sight. Who is doing this? While the media, government agencies and many people in France - a country with a large nuclear power industry where numerous sightings have occurred recently - believe the crafts are drones flown by nuclear protesters, the director of one of these plants recently said that, in his opinion, the recent one seen over his facility was a UFO.

In the fall of 2014, it was reported that there were anywhere from 13 to 18 incidents of French nuclear power plants being targets of surveillance or suspicious hovering by UFOs. One of them was the Blayais Nuclear Power Plant in southwestern France. In a presentation on the fiscal and security status of his plant, director Pascal Pezzani told the audience that there definitely was something flying over the facility (not the image above) but it was not a drone – it was a UFO. Here’s a Google English translation of his comment from the French news site Sud Quest:

Here, we have not seen drone. We saw a UFO and there was no impact on the safety of our sites. Our position is clear, when there overflight of the site and we complain we communicate.

So, plant director Pascal Pezzani stated unequivocally that what was seen hovering over his plant was NOT a drone but a UFO. Since he says it was unidentified, that eliminates helicopters, balloons, blimps and hovering jets and leaves …

Unfortunately, director Pezzani’s speculation ends with “UFO.”

These UFO sightings over nuclear facilities worldwide have been occurring long before drones became available. While many plants do not hesitate to report them, none seem to want to contact or confront them. Why not?
