                                                A strange sight...

10 October, 2002
A SURVEILLANCE camera (CCTV) mounted atop the Kota Kinabalu International Airport terminal captured a rather strange sight resembling a “flying coffin” (picture below and a close-up view above) hovering over Terminal Two, last Friday night.

A senior Malaysia Airports Berhad (MAB) officer said the revolving camera was focusing on the Terminal Two area at about 7.06pm when those monitoring the surveillance were caught by surprise by the object “flying” across the scene within seconds before disappearing from the screen.

An immediate check with the radar station showed the object did not appear on their screen, except for a Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Fokker aircraft taking off three minutes earlier.

The outline of the aircraft was clearly identified on the radar screen, the officer said.

A security guard on duty in the area claimed to have seen the object flying in a great speed over Terminal Two, initially seen rising from the direction of the sea before disappearing over the hills adjacent to the KKIA terminal. “There was no sound at all,” he said.

                                                I think this might be the most authentic footage we have ever seen. At least the camera was in order and taped SOMETHING. There was SOMETHING, but as to the 'something' really is a UFO? Yes, it is. It is an Unidentified Flying Object, but I don't think the object is from outer space. Someone had a good laugh that night, I think.

                                                  huh, i'm not sure about anything, because i can hardly see the picture..it's rather small, but i know in some cases, if a camera tries to focus on an object that is too bright, you get a lense flare in the shape of that camera's aperature. I know this accounts for a lot of "flying box" or flying diamond" videos and pictures...also for a lot of the "doorway to heaven" pictures. Maybe there was a bright object and the resulting flare looks like a coffin shape?

                                                      First thing I thought was that it looked like a cigarette packet, Marlboro to be precise.
But why it would be flying in the air above Kota Kinabalu International Airport's terminal two is the mystery - maybe it was a packet of Marlboro ultra, ultra lights, or just another elaborate ad campaign.  grin2.gif

                                                      This is another "who knows?" picture - there is no way of telling how far away the object is from the camera. Intriguing but not enough evidence unfortunately                                                      

never take me too seriously

                                                      could it be a banner if some sort, that may have blown down from somewhere?
