Apparently, UFO reports spiked on the night of May 22nd, thanks to the flight of the first solar plane, which can fly day and night without fuel emissions (amazing). It landed at the DFW Airport at 1 AM on Wednesday. The extremely large craft is definitely a cool sight, and its slow and silent movement, large amount of lights, and hovering abilities would most certainly have caused a passerby to scratch their head.
What makes this story even more intriguing is recently we heard about a mass UFO sighting in the town of Quincy, MA - of "an airplane ... buzzing around the city, flying low and slow." As if that isn't spooky enough, the FAA knows what's up but isn't telling! A Quincy resident said "it's more than weird, it's frightening ... I don't know if they're looking for somebody ... they won't tell us." The only thing the FAA had to say about the matter is: "aircraft is not a drone, it's manned, and we have to be very careful this time." Could this solar plane be what Quincy residents saw? And if so, why is the FAA being so creepy about it?
Here's a video of the "UFO" landing:
Here are a few quotes from a local San Antonio news story about it:
The carbon fibre Solar Impulse, with a 208-foot wingspan, flew in from Phoenix during its second leg of a cross-country trip that began May 3 from the San Francisco Bay Area. The plane is the first able to fly day and night without fuel or polluting emissions.
I'm not seeing any of the UFO reports really, but there was one submitted to MUFON and I think it might be describing this plane leaving the DFW airport:
My friends were outside waving for me to go outside and look. I looked towards the DFW airport direction and saw a cigar shaped object with red & green lights on the ends and a red light in the middle that was flashing. It was swaying back & forth changing direction. It kind of resembled a plane but it swayed oddly. Wierd! it slowly drifted towards the south. it was hard to see it at times because of the trees. it was kind of scary I've never seen anything like that before
