UFO casually overtakes Virgin airliner

Footage has emerged showing a strange object flying past a large plane as it takes off from an airport.
The video, which was uploaded on to the LookNowTV YouTube channel, was filmed by an anonymous individual in New York near to John F. Kennedy International Airport.

As the plane ascends it is possible to see a small dark-colored object moving in the same direction but at a much greater speed before disappearing off towards the left of the frame.

The fact that the video was recorded at an airport makes it difficult to rule out other aircraft but that hasn't stopped the video from going viral with almost 200,000 views received to date on YouTube.
Despite skepticism from Internet users the uploader of the video, a man who is known only as Rick, remains adamant that what the footage shows is something more than just another plane.

"I worked with the guy that filmed... I have no reason to believe this guy is a hoax," he said.

"I shared it with my friends to get further opinions on it and we could not come to a definitive conclusion on what the object might be so I decided to go with it and share it online."

"When something looks really unusual, like this, we will post it."

That's a good point, but the climb rate probably isn't material since a bizjet would be following a fixed departure route that dictated its horizontal and vertical flight path. And in fact the UFO does seem to be climbing at the same angle as the 747. It remains to be seen if the 747 was taking off from the nearer of the two runways, though. Thats correct but I took the climb rate factor into picture to explain that a bizz jet with a higher (possible) climb rate is capable to accelerate much faster than a 747, especially if on a similar lift-off angle.

JFK has two sets of parallel runways. The climb rate of a 747 is approx. 2.500ft/min. The climb rate of small bizz jets is approx. 4.800ft/min. So, the aircraft ascend of small bizz jets is much more dynamic. So, no UFO, no bird. Amen. I took a few minutes to look at the OP video, and it did appear the "ufo" was behind the take off jet. Which led me to the exact same deduction that you had. This is just another, smaller plane, taking off at a higher speed, which allowed it to lift off earlier and thus appear to be "above" this passenger jet. I was thinking a military jet, but you are correct t... [More]

I was thinking a military jet, but you are correct that it probably was just a fast civilian business jet. i don't think they'd do that, not parallel takeoffs. Parallel landings, yes, but even parallel takeoffs would be instructed to use similar climb rates to avoid chaos.And certainly m... [More]

And THe Plot Thickens ! Now for some Facts ?

Gee, with our high tech HD video cameras available, is that all those alleged genuine camera men can come up with ! ? GEE! - And that goes for all those endless, jittery, washed out, alleged REAL Alien Spacecrafts video clips and photos - which are regurgitated month after month as the real deal by those fakers. Give it a rest already - and get a real life!

could be anything all just second guessin and videos that seem to be popping up lately , like hartmut just said with all our high tech HD video cameras available you would think things would be certain . until ive seen one meself or a actual HD video ill be thinking it could be anything . but I do believe there more out there . STIL great to read and watch these

Strange. Small. Actually, hard to calculate size. But I don't think I'd jump to the conclusion that it's a UFO that's for certain. Weird.

i don't think they'd do that, not parallel takeoffs. Parallel landings, yes, but even parallel takeoffs would be instructed to use similar climb rates to avoid chaos. Why not? As long as the flight paths don't encroach by the amounts regulated, there is no reason at all to not do it. In fact there are very good reasons to do it - aircraft have widely varying safe/efficient takeoff speeds and climbrates, and you can't, and shouldn't, make them all take off identically..

Here's a parallel takeoff from LaGuardia, so I think if they do it there, then they would also do it at JFK. Probably depends on how backed up the Departures are getting.

I have been in plenty of parallel take-offs...and landings, for that matter. I can't really see what the big mystery is for some. Cheers, Badeskov
