UFO Over China (06/10/2010) Marks 8th Time Since June

abcnews.go.com ———————————————————— A Chinese airport was shut down for more than an hour last month because air traffic controllers saw what they believed to be a UFO buzzing the airport, according to reports out of the country. It is the eighth time since June that UFOs have been reported in China. In the latest episode, several passenger jets were diverted from the airport at Baotou in Inner Mongolia for about an hour around 8 pm on Sept. 11. The alert was triggered by bright lights in the sky that moved erratically, but reports claim that air traffic controllers at the Hohhot Air Traffic Management Bureau spotted the object on their radar. After about an hour, the object and the lights suddenly vanished and passenger jets were allowed to land. The Chinese government had said on previous occasions that the lights claimed to be UFOs were military exercises, but the government denied the Sept. 11 incident happened at all. This summer another UFO report caused a sensation and forced Xiaoshan Airport in Hangzhou, to cease operations on July 7. A flight crew preparing for descent first detected the object around 8:40 pm and notified the air traffic control department. Aviation authorities responded within minutes, grounding outbound flights and diverting inbound ones to airports in Ningbo and Wuxi. Eighteen flights were affected. Though normal operations resumed an hour later, the incident captured the attention of the Chinese media
