After a month of research, an expert told reporters that a UFO spotted in Hangzhou on July 7 might be a special purpose aircraft, such as a plane, on Aug, 11.

According to Wang Sichao, a researcher from the Purple Mountain Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the UFO that encroached on the airspace of Xiaoshan airport in Hangzhou flew at a height of one kilometer from the ground. It might be some special aircraft, such as a plane, or some rapid, noiseless or low-noise aircraft, reported by Chinanews.com.cn.

On July 7, Hangzhou's Xiaoshan airport was forced to stop all flights because of the appearance of some UFO, and that had triggered a great debate within the country. Around 8:40 p.m., crew members on two flights that were about to land found a UFO was hovering in the air, and they notified the air traffic control center.

A few minutes later, air control ordered all flights to stop taking off and those flights that were heading to Xiaoshan airport were instructed to fly to airports in Ningbo and Wuxi to land. A total of 18 flights were affected this time.

Wang also believes that the UFO was unlikely to be some typical domestic plane or overseas plane. Also, it could not be cruise missile or rocket fragments.
