THE US Air Force admits it. Something strange flew through US skies, startling flyers and spurring the launch of jets.
|On October 25, an unidentified aircraft was seen flying — in broad daylight — among the airliners in one of the United States’ heavily trafficked air corridors in the skies above Oregon.|
It had no submitted flight plan. It had no identification transponder active. Nor was it transmitting collision avoidance signals.
Air traffic control stations were reportedly having difficulty following it on radar.
At first it sounded like a typical example of an aircraft suffering communications failure.
But then came news, via Reddit, that US air force F-15C interceptor fighters had been launched in response to the sightings.
