UK UFO Pilot Sightings Update & Watch Video Of Interview With The Pilot

Well, surprise, surprise the story of two separate UK airline pilots sighting multiple UFO's has conflicting reports and the story is only a few days old!!
The Guernsey Star originally reported that there was NO radar signal and even quoted the air traffic controller as saying, “If the object was stationary, our equipment would not have picked it up because the radar would have screened it out.”
The term RADAR was coined in 1941 as an acronym for
Radio Detection and Ranging.
Radar is a system that uses electromagnetic waves to identify the range, altitude, direction, or speed of both moving and fixed objects such as aircraft, ships, motor vehicles, weather formations, and terrain, so if the UFO wasn't moving the signature surely would still be visible. And as for the radar equipment, “Screening it out” I find it impossible to believe that air traffic control radar equipment would screen out possible adverse weather conditions as well as possible collision detection with the objects in question which were reportedly up to a mile long! !
Radar works in principle by a transmitter which emits radio waves, which are then reflected by the target and detected by a receiver, typically in the same location as the transmitter. Although the radio signal returned is usually very weak, radio signals can easily be amplified, thus enabling radar to detect objects at ranges where other emissions, such as sound or visible light, would be too weak to detect.
It's only been a few months since the sighting at the O'Hare airport caused quite a stir as it was originally denied by the F.A.A. despite being seen by several independent witnesses including a lot of the nervous airport staff. As the O'Hare UFO shot into the sky it actually displaced heavy cloud cover by creating a hole in the cloud which took quite some time to close back up.
This case is already becoming bigger than this sighting as it transpires that nearly all of the passengers on the flights also seen the UFO. So that's two experienced airline pilots and most of their civilian passengers.
I have also included an interview which the pilot gave in which he says he was quite scared by the experience as well as stating that he has been told that the objects DEFINITELY showed up on radar. The fact that the UFOs could be seen from approximately 40 miles away gives some indication as to the colossal size of the crafts which the pilot still maintains could easily be over a mile in length.
Even former investigator of UFOs for the Ministry of Defence, Nick Pope has said, "While no witnesses are infallible, pilots are trained observers and less likely than most people to misidentify something mundane.”
Also, on The Professional Pilots Rumour Network (PPRuNe) Forums a brand new member signed up and instantly posted a very poor, obviously photoshopped image of a hazy nondescript object which looked nothing like the pilots reports, and also due to the location of the actual sighting was (in my opinion) an impossibility that it was the UFO in question!! The poster claimed it was floating around various emails and whether the poster was just genuinely misinformed, a glory seeker or part of a, “Greater conspiracy” is presently unknown.
