More UFOs Sighted Approaching Airplanes

It seems like close encounters of the window seat kind are happening more frequently these days. Videos have been released of three different UFO sightings near commercial aircraft that have occurred over the past several months with more undoubtedly unrecorded or unreported. What’s causing this sudden attraction of UFOs to airplanes?

The most recent sighting has been getting a lot of publicity since it occurred at JFK Airport in New York City while the plane was taking off. The video, taken by an anonymous “plane enthusiast, shows a Virgin Atlantic plane rising in the sky on July 7th and then being overtaken by a UFO seen flying above it. The cigar-shaped object is too close to be another commercial aircraft and no military jets were reported in the area.

The next two sightings took place in England. This one was recorded at night on June 12th over Lambourn, England, and shows an airplane passing by a UFO.

Witness Carole Betts says she saw two UFOs and managed to record the one near the passing airplane. After she reported her sighting in the local news, other witnesses came forward with similar accounts of an object that was “White, with a blob in the middle.” This also matches a previous sighting in the daytime over nearby Hungerford. So far, there have been no explanations for any of these sightings and no reports from the pilot or passengers in the aircraft.

On the other hand, the next sighting was made by a passenger inside a plane flying over Liverpool.

The anonymous witness spotted the object traveling next to his plane and recorded it from his window seat. His magnified view at the end puts doubt on theories it was just another plane. The sighting appears to have been made in early March and the local media reports that there were a number of UFO sightings in the Liverpool area since January.

There’s been no definitive identifications of any of these UFOs seen accompanying or passing by airplanes. Commercial and military pilots admit that they see a lot of UFOs but sightings by passengers and ground witnesses are less frequent.

What do you think these objects are? Why are they hanging around airplanes? Could they be protecting them from the same fate as Malaysia Flight 370?
