Beijing, Jul 9: A Chinese official said that the Unidentified Flying Object which disrupted air traffic in a Chinese city has a "military connection". The officer refused to disclose more details about the UFO as it was not the proper time to publicly disclose the information since there was a 'military connection' to it.
The UFO had disrupted air traffic over Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang province, on Wednesday, Jul 8. After it was detected at around 9 pm, Xiaoshan Airport was closed and some flights were redirected to Ningbo and Wuxi airports, informed an airport official.
He added that the air traffic has been resumed and more details will be released after the investigation.
Some media had reported that a fan shaped white light UFO was spotted in Urumqi, Northwest China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. Song Huagang, secretary general of Xingjiang Astronomy Society had later said that the UFO was later identified as debris from an intercontinental missile launched by US.
