On sunday 18th September, my girlfriend returned to Edinburgh from the Czech Republic. As soon as we met at the airport at 2pm, she excitedly told me, she saw something very dodgy from the plane as her flight was coming into the north eastern coastline of the UK at approx 1pm (she landed at the airport at 13:41). Just out at sea she spotted between 5 to 7 orange round objects...I have below the story in her own words...

When she told me, I checked on the Net to see if there were any other similar reports in the same region and around the same time...Needless to say, I was excited to read of the reports also coming from the east of England of multiple orange discs on the 17th, the previous day to my girlfriend's sighting. Do you know if anyone else also witnessed her sighting on the 18th September? My Girlfriend's report......

"On 18th September I was flying from Prague to Edinburgh. The sky got cloudy somewhere over the Netherlands. Over the Channel the clouds were a bit torn. I felt sleepy as I had to get up at 4am that morning and didn't get to sleep too well at night. And seeing just clouds became a bit boring after a while. Also my seat was at the window but near the wing, so the wing and the engine took a lot of my view. If I wanted to see something, I had to lean forward and look out of the farther window. So only occasionaly I looked out to see if we are still over the continent or over the sea or approaching Britain.

Then around 1pm (GST) I looked out again and saw we were still over the sea. There was a gap between clouds so I could see the sea. Down, deep under me I could see some round orange things. They looked like round rubber life boats on the sea. There were 7 of them. They seemed to be floating on the sea surface. They were moving slowly and then when the left most circle got into its position, I noticed that they created a perfect boomerang shaped formation. That attracted my attention. Creating the formation, they were moving quite fast for something that big on the sea. I could swear that at the beginning they were a bit scattered but now they were very much giving an impression of a single body. That perfect the formation was. I started thinking of an invisible delta aircraft and really, apart from the orange spots I couldn't see anything between them. Was it a military training? I tried to have a better look to identify what it was but suddenly there were two white clouds bursting out of two of the circles like an explosion and all the formation, like one body, moved forward with great acceleration leaving just two short white double lines behind. The lines were short, just about double the height of the triangle. As a space craft getting enough speed just from a short fire. At high speed all the formation disappeared under the cloud and I had the feeling that it wanted to hide, not to be seen. I hoped that it would come out on the other side of the large cloud before the engine and the wing cover my view, but it didn't. After the cloud I saw a ship, looked big, at least like a ferry, maybe bigger. And still the length of the ship would make only about two thirds of the side of the boomerang. And the circles were slightly bigger in diameter than the width of the ship. So the object must have been huge.

Soon after we approached the East coast of Britain and 1.40pm we were landing at the Edinburgh airport."
