Freedom of Information Act request...
Several people reported seeing bizarre phenomena in the skies above them to Essex Police, according to the chilling response to a Freedom of Information Act request.
Several pilots have reported seeing UFOs from the cockpit of their planes.
A Freedom of Information Act request was made to Essex Police to ask about sightings made from frightened members of the public. Several talk of lights travelling at high speed while one says they “danced in the night sky” above their home. Also known as unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), there are no answers to ascertain what each of the bizarre sightings really were.
One was made by a pilot from Ryanair travelling at more than 200 mph, who said: “Ryanair was climbing out from Stansted Airport and was a height of 4000 ft and just over the St Elizabeth Centre the pilot saw an object which was described as 'black.' It passed within 20 metres of the aircraft, the plane was travelling at 230 mph and the object was travelling from north to south. They have said that it was possibly a drone, but the drone monitoring equipment at the airport has not picked it up.”
Another report was made after three aircraft reported seeing an object near their planes at the same time. The eerie report read: “Incident involved a UFO as three aircraft reported an object was in their vicinity. Info from the tower reporting two planes have reported an object at about 500 ft below them as they were coming into land on runway 22, the closest being 20 km away. Approach (2-3 miles out) when their traffic collision avoidance system alerted them to something at around 500 ft. None of the pilots could see anything when they looked.”
Another creepy report made by a member of the public said: “I would like to report a sighting of an unidentified flying object. The object appeared oval in shape and was a metallic colour with no apparent markings or lights. There were no conventional aircraft characteristics at all. The object was travelling east to west just south of my address in a straight line and the altitude was level around 100 feet at all times, as a guess. The object was moving quickly across the sky very smoothly with no deviation in height or direction or without any effects of the weather is the only way I could describe it.
“It was moving too fast for a bird and definitely was not a balloon that usually gets affected by the wind causing them to turn or tumble. This was unaffected by the light breeze blowing. This was a solid oval shape and was silent. This was not a drone or model aircraft due to the way it was flying. I viewed this from inside the rear of my home and then this object did not leave my sight until it was too far in the distance and obscured by another property. I have no explanation as to what this object could be.”
