UFO disrupts airport in Germany

An unidentified flying object over Bremen prompted cancelled flights and a formal police investigation.
The object turned up over Bremen on Monday night and was picked up on radar three times between 6:30pm and 9:30pm. Concerned officials were forced to cancel and delay several flights over safety fears and local police were called in to investigate.

Witnesses of the object, including officers in a patrol car, described lights similar to those found on a conventional aircraft but reported that it had made a much louder noise. Air traffic control personnel were able to view it from their control tower with binoculars but were unable to determine what it could be.

A police helicopter was later sent out to track down the object but was unable to find anything.

"We still don’t know what it was, but it was there," said a spokesman.

The "louder statement" comes from a 16-year-old boy, who was looking out the window. The sound of an RC plane is very different to that of an airplane, maybe that is what he meant. Yeah, that's certainly possible. Also, there is a possible translation issue. I looked up a few other reports and one of them suggested it might be a radio controlled airship which could account for the pronounce radar hit. OK I'm convinced, nothing to see here. Moving on.

The translation is correct. I thought about that as well.

The object in the sky was indeed just a model RC airplane. The two sense impressions were actually unrelated. Or, it could have just been a reflective temperature inversion, that looked like a solid object. The sound could have come from anywhere. No "flying saucer"... nope, not even ON... [More]

Aah sarcasm....witty. If you could, would you mind pointing to your best possible case where a physical 'craft' was witnessed with radar returns to corroborate? It's all well and good that you champion such things but let's have an honest look at just what you feel is the most compelling example of such hmmm? Perhaps with a new thread? There's quite a few... maybe the JAL transcontinental ufo contact over Alaska is a good one. Personally, i don't want to argue about radar, or any aspect of ufology. I'm interested in your opinions, not in who can win a debate.

The OP debunked itself by posting an update that explained it WAS an RC/drone type craft and they had found where it landed and had seen it. Didn't you read that? You might expect to be caught out a lot by not reading things thoroughly Examining the northern German city's “model plane scene”, as the police described it, has turned up no concrete leads yet Please post where they said they found the landing site. Original link: http://www.thelocal....-bremen-germany - no mention Updated link - http://www.thelocal....ely-model-plane - Quote is "believed to be". Headline says "was". Additional lin... [More]

But if you're going to admonish people for not reading something post a link. The only link available prior was the one in the post and it said nothing of a landing site. Go back and click the link in the OP, ie: Post number 1. scroll down to the bottom... and you find.. at the bottom of the link , it states: "On Sunday in the town of Zwickau, Saxony, an initially unidentified aircraft landed on a field behind a house. Hours later it turned out to be a remote-controlled model airship". Edit. My bad, Forget that, I just got the maps up and its too far away... but the article seamlessly joined t... [More]

No worries. I'm sorry I wasn't even able to find the above reference to Zwickau associated with this story. I have been able to find about 15 different accounts of this via Google and none mention that they have been able to track down the culprit. Hopefully it's just some kids with a toy and not someone with more sinister motives. Cool, actually I didn't mean scroll to very bottom - ie end of page, I meant just down to the end of that article, thats where it mentions Zwickau
