According to reports, a mysterious UFO had hit the Chinese passenger jet. The impact resulted to a massive dent and deep scrapes.
The pilot of the aircraft did not actually notice an object strike the plane but immediately experienced noticeable change to the plane's performance. The pilot contacted air traffic controllers requesting for a landing.
Experts are puzzled by what may have caused the damage to the front of the plane. A bird strike is ruled out as neither blood nor feathers are visible at the point of impact.
When images of the damage sustained by the Chinese passenger jet were shared online, some readers suggested the possibility of striking a drone in midair. A reader on the Aviation Herald suggested rapidly changing air pressures and expanding air as the cause of the dent. However, conspiracy theorists suggest the strike involves a UFO.
According to former government UFO investigator Nick Pope, an examination to the damaged nose cone should indicate what the unidentified object was as traces of its composition will most likely be present around the area of impact.
"Whatever struck the aircraft will have left evidence," said Pope in an interview with The Sun. "Analysis of the damaged nose cone should reveal microscopic traces of whatever struck the aircraft, or possibly even larger pieces of debris. So this is a solvable mystery."
"Cases like this show that whatever people believe about UFOs, there are serious air safety issues here," Pope continued.
"MoD (Ministry of Defence) and CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) files contain dozens of reports of near misses between UFOs and commercial aircraft. It's only a matter of time before there's a catastrophe."
Alerts of UFO activity along major air routes include eyewitness reports from three passenger jet pilots who noticed UFOs over Britain's Scientology headquarters as they approached Gatwick Airport for landing. Reports described the objects as "two flat, silver discs" within 100 feet. What's more, air traffic control then noticed six UFOs indicator on the radar before they quickly vanished.
The UFO encounter in Britain occurred on December 30. The incident was not revealed until last week.
