FAA Westbury Radar Facility was evacuated during October 13 UFO New York sighting
On October 13, 2010 several dozen UFOs were sighted over Manhattan, New York City.
Reports of the sightings began from around 1:30 pm and lasted into late Wednesday afternoon. On being approached by several news media for comment, the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) first reported nothing appeared on their radar. When it was later learned that a school in nearby Mt Vernon had released several party balloons in the sky, many media sources claimed the mystery behind the New York UFOs was solved.
sources covering the New York UFO sightings failed to mention was
that from 6:45 pm of the same day (October 13), the FAA had closed
down air operations at New York's three airports for about an hour.
What's more likely is that the FAA
closed its radar facility and delayed flights due to the UFOs
hovering at the time over Manhattan. More importantly, the UFOs may
have interfered in some way with the radar equipment. If so, then it
appears that the FAA is covering up the true significance of UFOs
witnessed over New York City.
Peters went on to claim,
While the FAA was denying any significance to the New York UFO story, an Associated Press story revealed that New York's three major airports had been disrupted during the UFO sighting.
The official cause for the disruption was the "smell of gas" at the radar facility handling all three major airports that led to its brief evacuation.
Here's what the AP reported:
The one hour closure of air operations at New York's three airports together with the evacuation of the radar facility during the appearance of UFOs over Manhattan may simply be an extraordinary coincidence.
What's far more likely, however, is that the FAA is covering up the true significance of the UFOs sighted on October 13, and how the UFOs led to flight delays for three major airports, and even interfered with the FAA's radar facility in a way that led to its closure.
This has many parallels with recent
airport closings in
China where radar operations were disrupted by UFOs.
The New York Post , Fox News and other media sources have all claimed the UFOs were balloons released by children at a nearby school in Mt Vernon.
A Youtube video (below) reveals that about a dozen party balloons were accidentally released around midday for a birthday celebration.
The party balloon explanation is however very unlikely given the time involved between initial and later reports.
Even though the New York UFO sightings were first officially reported at 1:30 pm, shortly after the accidental Mt Vernon party balloon release, witnesses described seeing the UFOs as early as 9:30 am on October 13 (below video), and that they numbered as many as 50.
Also, the closure of the New York radar facilities and flight delays began at 6:45 pm.
Up to this time, UFOs were being sighted and filmed by New York residents.
The party balloon explanation falls apart at closer examination.
It nevertheless appears to have been quickly accepted by the mass media in what appears to be an officially sanctioned attempt to cover up the truth behind the New York UFO sightings. This leads to the most plausible explanation that the UFOs were intelligently controlled objects that caused problems with the Westbury radar facility. This led to flight delays at New York's three major airports.
This seems to be a similar series of events as occurred earlier this year at several Chinese airports after UFO sightings.
Most significantly, what happened over New York's skies vindicates the October 13 prediction made four months earlier by a retired NORAD officer that extraterrestrial vehicles would begin appearing over major world cities as the first step in a process to prepare humanity for the truth that we are not alone.
