Green-Colored UFO Shuts Down Norway Airport
Captain Johan Kylborn
Published: 2:22 PM 3/27/2011

The Oslo Internatioal Airport is located in Gardermoen in Ullensaker, Norway, 48 km. north of Oslo.

It was nice weather and good visibility when the plane came over Sandvika from Frankfurt on the way to Oslo.

Suddenly, Captain Johan Kylborn discovered something unexpected in the air. "I am sure that it was some kind of aircraft. It had a clear wing profile, and was probably a glider, it may have been a hang glider or a microlight, but it's hard to tell," said the Captain.

As many as 15,000 passengers may have been affected by the closed airspace, which was caused by the observation of a UFO, 8,000 feet in the air, Thursday afternoon, 03-24-11.

According to the Norwegian Air Sports Federation, there were no gliders in the air above the airport. They have checked all relevant gliders in Norway, and none of them were active at the time.

Oyvind Ellefsen is on the national team in hang gliding, and instructor in the Norwegian Air Sports Federation. He was going to take a walk yesterday, but was grounded because of difficult weather.

He denies that there could have been a paraglider or hang glider, which was at 8,000 feet yesterday.

Previously, Captain Kylborn has seen both weather balloons and helium balloons in the air.

"They are much smaller, and not like an aircraft at all, so I'm sure it was not [a balloon]."

The Police are investigating that case, but have few clues to go by.

"We have not received other clues about the sighting, and we have no other information that allows us to move forward with this. This is a bit unexplainable," said Morten Undlen at Oslo Airport police station.
