Unconfirmed reports indicate that the crash of a 737 in Pakistan last Friday may have been caused by a UFO sighting by the pilot minutes before the accident.
In the Russian news report below, rumors that air traffic controllers received a report from the pilot of the Bhoja Air Boeing 737 minutes before the crash on approach to the Islamabad airport included an account of being buzzed by a triangular-shaped unidentified flying object.
Pakistani officials have initially blamed the crash on a combination of extremely bad weather, pilot error and aging equipment. Eyewitnesses have stated that the jet was already consumed by fire as it approached the airport and was too low and traveling too fast.
Whether or not a UFO actually interfered with the flight or not is pure speculation at this point. It is whether the pilot believed an unidentified aircraft was interfering with the flight which is important, because of the resulting distraction and confusion.
Here is how Russian TV is reporting the incident. The video is in Russian, obviously, but enough information can be understood by the English language words used and the images inserted to understand what is being said.
