Daily Hampshire Gazette (Northampton, Mass.)

AMHERST, Mass. (AP) Federal aviation officials have explained the mysterious flying object seen in the Amherst area earlier his month sort of.

A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman says a military aircraft was flying over Amherst on Jan. 8 at about the time residents reported seeing the UFO flying silently overhead.

The spokesman tells The Daily Hampshire Gazette (http://bit.ly/SvylWf ) the giant C5 cargo plane was doing practice approaches to Westover Air Reserve Base.

A Westover spokesman at first said there was no record of aircraft flying over Amherst at that time, but later said there was.

The UFO was described by witnesses as triangular or diamond-shaped, the size of two or three cars, flying slow and silent.

That does not jibe with a C5, which is almost 250 feet long and extremely loud.
