Loud blasts caused a stir in the north of England late Monday (May 2, 2016) with residents in the Yorkshire area taking to social media to express worries that an attack or a serious accident had taken place.
The mystery began on Monday evening after a series of bangs were heard across towns and cities in the north.
According to RT.news startled locals from Leeds, York, Harrogate and Doncaster took to social media to unearth the cause of the unusually loud booms, with some clearly worried that a terrorist attack might have occurred.
Reports then began to emerge which suggested that the loud booms had been caused by supersonic RAF jets scrambling to intercept a civilian plane after air traffic controllers had lost contact with it.
But an extraordinary Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that a squadron of Eurofighter Typhoon fighter aircraft were scrambled to intercept a “mysterious object” (UFO?) that had risen out of the sea.
According to WhatDoesItMean, this report, multiple Federation, British, NATO and American satellite and radar sources detected this “mysterious object” rising out of the sea off the coast of North England yesterday prompting RAF Coningsby, in Lincolnshire, to launch a squadron of Eurofighter Typhoon’s to intercept it, with one of these fighter aircraft making numerous combat attacks against it (as captured radar image – see below – shows) causing it then to disappears.
Within 15 minutes of this event occurring, MoD analysts in this report say, the British government issued a DA-Notice (Defence Advisory Notice) making it illegal for any news media organizations to report the facts of what had occurred and 7 hours later published a report of this event stating that it was caused by a wayward Air France airliner over Yorkshire that had experienced a radio communication problem.
Below the official report of the event:
Newcastle Airport has confirmed that “flight AFR1558 from Paris, Charles De Gaulle was escorted into Newcastle Airport by RAF aircraft having lost communication with Air Traffic Control. The aircraft landed safely at 22:23.”
MoD experts in this report, however, state that all of Air France’s Airbus A320 aircraft have multiple communication systems (like all modern passenger aircraft) that continue working in emergency mode under all circumstances, with the exception of the aircraft suffering a catastrophic failure (crash), which this one did not.
