Shannon Air Traffic Control received a call from a British Airways pilot flying from Montreal to Heathrow over County Kerry at 6.47am on 9 November.
In a statement to CBS News, the Irish Aviation Authority said the reports will be "investigated under the normal confidential occurrence investigation process". The details are similar in some respects to reported sightings of unidentified flying objects over Oregon, Arizona, and NY, incidents that The War Zone was the first to report on.
Something weird has been sighted in the skies above Ireland - after several airliner pilots encountered a "very bright, very fast" object last week.
"I'm just guessing the first pilots had seen one that bright before", he said, adding that "it would be a bit unnerving" seeing one streaking past your aeroplane.
The Irish Aviation Authority is investigating after the pilot of a flight from Montreal to Heathrow spotted a odd phenomenon while over the coast of Ireland.
One claimed the UFO was travelling at an "astronomical" speed of at least Mach 2 (2,500 km/h), which is twice as fast as a commercial plane. It begins 17:50 and ends right after the 20:00 minute mark.Читайте также: Johnson, pass rush positive signs from Arizona’s loss at KC
The startled pilot rang Shannon Air Traffic Control inquiring to see if a military activity was occurring over Irish airspace.
A Virgin Airlines pilot reported seeing a UFO over Ireland.
Another pilot from a Virgin plane then chipped in, denting hopes of aliens: he suggested it could be a "meteor or another object making some kind of re-entry".
A spokesperson for the Irish Aviation Authority told the Irish Times it was investigating the incident and would file a report.
