      U.F.O Sighted Over Kota Kinabalu.

      An unidentified flying object has been spotted over the skies of Kota
      Kinabalu, puzzling air traffic controllers, who say the craft was
      bigger than an airliner.

      The U-F-O was first spotted on radar screens, but later there were
      naked-eye sightings even in broad daylight.

      This is a Malaysia Airport Berhad close circuit television recording
      at terminal two of the Kota Kinabalu International Airport on October
      fifth.

      Although it might just show as a ciger-shaped object , Air Traffic
      Controllers were surprised because the craft was flying at great
      speed.

      The controllers were tracking a fokker airliner taking off when it
      noticed the long U-F-O.

      Traffic Controllers knew for sure there were no other commercial or
      private planes in the skies at that time-- at least not ones that were
      scheduled.

      MAB showed the startling recording to TV3, but said the incident was
      not unique.

      There had been at least four other sightings over Kota Kinabalu over
      the past seven years.

      Some of the U-F-O's were said to vary in shape and size, ranging from
      a sphere, to a cigar-shaped object.

      On October 22nd, Sabah TV3'S Cameraman Kassem Mahmun took this
      footage, of a Boeing 737 taking off.

      He then noticed an object in the distance, which appeared at a higher
      altitude, but was stationary.

      Kassem said the object suddenly dissapeared just a few second after he
      noticed it.

      Air Traffic Controllers at K-K International Airport verified the
      sighting.

      But again, they said it was not the first time.

      One Controller told TV3 of an incident in 1995, when he saw a strange
      craft in the sky although he had just gave clerance for a fiokker
      airliner to land.

      All the radars had shown the route clear for the landing.

      "The Pilot is somewhere about 4 miles from touch down he asks if there
      are any traffic beside us he sighted something he said so we check it
      most probably itu would be a helicopter or something light aircraft,
      so we said there's no traffic so we ask him do you sight any traffic,
      he said he sighted something and it disappeared, then he disregard and
      he came and land, after that about 10 to 15 minutes from there, when
      traffic get less or something, a round object more like a ball of
      fire, it came toward from the sea right to the mirror of the control
      tower, it stayed about 5 seconds just vanish towards the
      mountain-side.

      The Department of Civil Aviation have yet to give an explanation on
      the incidents, except for saying that it could not identify them for
      sure.
