China UFO Wave

Postby longhaircowboy » Wed Oct 06, 2010 9:30 pm

It seems China is in the miidst of a UFO wave thats been shutting down airports since early summer. Check out this ABC report http://news.yahoo.com/video/world-15749 ... a-22306325
Some of the sightings have been claimed by the government to be military exercises it seems they are denying this one.

There are not enough details in any of these reports. In my last issue of SUNlite I looked at Venus as the culprit for the July incident. It was plausible but so much data is missing. I would not be surprised if Venus (still visible in the southwest) or Jupiter may be involved again.

Does anybody know the original source(s) for all these reports? The reason I ask is because I was under the impression in China the State controls the media.

Never mind, answered my own question with some help from Alan Boyle at MSNBC…

UFO tales just keep going, and going
http://cosmiclog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/20 ... -and-going

What is it with these UFO reports from China? Even though sightings of unidentified flying objects were initially reported weeks or months ago, the stories just keep generating headlines —

Bingo!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/People's_Daily

Since the mid-1990s, the People's Daily has faced a decline of governmental subsidies combined with increasing competition from international news sources and Chinese tabloids. As part of its effort to modernize, it began an online edition in 1997, and the web bulletin forums, such as the Strengthening Nation Forum in the Chinese edition, has been known for their surprisingly candid content. The complexity of the People's Daily's situation can be seen by the fact that it is a dot-com, with banner advertising for washing machines and Coca-Cola next to banners promoting the Communist Party of China.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_Daily

Foreign editors at the paper have been told that like most state-owned enterprises, the China Daily will no longer receive government subsidies and the newspaper's publication group is expected to show a profit. To this end, the paper has adopted a more commercial approach and its editorial content is being pitched increasingly towards a wider range of readers so as to attract more advertising revenue. Much of the publishing group's revenue comes from real estate investments.

"Chinese state controls the media"...must be official government disclosure that the faithful crave then [-o<

I think the Exopolotics people are looking to get in on the Chinese market. I think this guy is the channel for Chinese stuff to find it's way to the west...

Awhile ago there was an attempt to start a UFO course at one of the Uni's here(I live in HK)...

As for the UFO's and their interest in airports, they are almost certainly private aircraft owned by China's growing business community.

"In the next decade, China will accelerate flight training and private recreational flying business as well as short-haul passenger and cargo transport to fully develop the aviation market."

Has anyone heard any additional news on the China UFO flap yet? 8 sightings since June - it almost makes me think there's some sort of technology show-down going on.

http://abcnews.go.com/International/fre ... 100&page=2

Just seems weird that these would all happen not long after the O'Hare incident. Of course it could very well be coincidence. It'll be interesting to see what takes place over the next few months and whether or not these escalate.

If anyone hears any news on the China front could you update this thread?

Stardrive.org posts links almost daily, and many of late concern this so-called flap. A recent weigh-in by B Maccabee as well. Alas, the info is quite puff.
