Turkey’s Gaziantep Airport suspended all flights for twelve long hours following reports of a UFO in the area. At least 26 flights were affected two days ago when all inbound and outbound flights were canceled.
Oddly, the standard procedures to shut down flights was not activated. A NOTAM (Notice to Airman) was not issued over the incident.
A commercial aircraft, which landed at the airport around midnight, gave urgent reports to the airport authorities about an unidentified flying object (UFO) flying at a height of 2,743.2 meters (9,000 feet) over the city of Gaziantep, a city close to the build up of Turkish troops, just north of Aleppo.
The pilot’s reports were confirmed by the air traffic controllers.
Strange and unexplainable UFO sightings over Turkey have been happening a lot this year. Something strange was seen over the city of Busra early this year.
Some Christians believe that UFOs are an explainable phenomena and others think that they could be angels.
BTJ has been working in Turkey this year, responding to the earthquake disaster.
