Pakistani scientists disagree PIA pilot spotted a UFO during flight

Punjab University scientist Sami has contradicted the claims of the PIA pilot of sighting a UFO.

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) pilot mistook lenticular clouds as an unidentified flying (UFO) object says Pakistani space scientist, Javed Sami, on Saturday.

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) pilots have reported seeing a “foo fighter”, commonly known as UFO (Unidentified flying object) on Sunday. “Foo fighter” was a name given by the World War II pilots to explain the unidentified or mysterious objects seen in the sky during operations.

A white circular object was noticed by the PIA pilots over the plane which was flying at 35,00 feet. The crew members started recording the unidentified object quickly after it came into notice.


According to the flight captain’s observation, the object was surrounded by a metal ring and was releasing a white light from the center. The object, as seen in the video, has very little or no movement at all, hence it cannot be stated for sure whether it was moving or just hovering. The flight crew upon landing was informed such unidentified objects have been reported in the past by people across the world as well.

According to Scott C. Wang, a blogger who posts about UFO sightings, the recorded video by PIA pilots of the unidentified object is the most focused and accurate image of a “foo fighter” in UFO’s research history. Aliens follow human movements and activities by following their planes, claimed Scott.

A similar incident was also reported in January 2019 by PIA pilots, that too in Karachi. A UFO was spotted by the flight crew flying 105 feet above the aircraft, while the plane was flying at an altitude of 4300 feet. The incident was immediately reported to the Air Traffic Control (ATC) in Karachi. The video was shot near Rahim Yar Khan AT 4 pm.

PIA UFO sighting: What does the scientist say?

However, Punjab University scientist Sami has contradicted the claims of the PIA pilot of sighting a UFO. He said the planes usually fly at an altitude of 37,000 ft while the video was shot at an altitude of 1000 ft.

“The pilot observed a visual process in the air. The object visible to the pilot was a lenticular cloud. Commercial pilots often observed such clouds,” he said.

Adding that when the picture of the object is taken to the 500 to 900 kilometer per hour speed, its shape spread.

Residents of Rahim Yar Khan also spotted a UFO-kind object and made videos of it.
