Vietnam: UFO crash in Phu Quoc?

An unidentified flying object crashed on Phu Quoc island Tuesday.

From the debris, authorities suspect it to be an airplane but in the absence of markings on them or the remains of passengers, no firm conclusions have been made.

Residents in the north of the island said they heard explosions in the sky at around 11 am and then saw a black object plunge to ground, leaving a white trail of smoke behind.

Island authorities confirmed they found six pieces of metal, some with screws on them, with the biggest being about 1.5 meters long.


Move along now, nothing to see here! Britain says strange aircraft are not UFOs

They were shaped like cigars, saucers, coffins and amorphous blinking blobs. They hovered in a menacing manner, traveled at impossible speeds and vanished into the netherworld, or, in one instance, a hedge in Cornwall.

A few carried humanoid life forms, or so it seemed. A few materialized courtesy of the observers' possibly having had a drink too many, as in the case of an unidentified flying light cluster witnessed loitering in the sky by the patrons of a pub in Kent.
