Hi,

I heard on the news this morning that a “massive” ufo has been seen over Alderny (UK Channel island) by at least 3 pilots and also showed up on radar.

There was a short interview with one of the pilots, who had to have a cup of tea, when he landed as he was “shaken up”, he sounded like a level headed chap.

Not heard anything more yet, I’m also looking in the local news for it.

Captain Ray Bowyer was about to fly an Aurigny plane from Alderney to Southampton when he saw the objects through binoculars.

Mr Bowyer said he was "pretty shook-up" by the sighting...
