UFO Sighting Report Date: 17th May, 2009.Time: 11:30 AM.Place: Barnstormers Flying Club, Kempton Park, South Africa.Description: 2 disc shaped objects captured in aircraft photo. On Sunday 17th May, 2009 I was taking photographs of radio controlled model aircraft at an airshow at my local club. The day was very clear, without any clouds, but was extremely windy as a cold front had just moved in from the South. The only full sized aircraft were commercial airliners approaching OR Tambo International airport at an elevation of approximately 2000 metres above ground level. No small aircraft or helicopters were seen in the vicinity at all during the day.There were several incidents the worst 2 being aircraft that went totally out of control and crashed into the ground. My camera, a Cannon EOS 350 D Digital fitted with a 300 mm lens, was consistently going into an error mode requiring switching off and on to reset. This was mildly annoying. Another anomaly was that where I was sitting, amongst the parked model aircraft, all of them switched off, I though I heard the electronic relays “chattering” occasionally but dismissed it as impossible.On the following morning whilst downloading to my PC all the photographs that I had taken I spotted 2 strange “blobs”. On closer examination after zooming the picture the “blobs” resemble disc shaped flying objects. Unfortunately the focus is not good as I was focusing on the model aircraft.The aircraft were about 150 meters away but the “blobs” are about 10 to 15 kM away.Could these be the typical saucer shaped UFO’s that we read about so often? I am a normal, educated and responsible male adult, 68 years of age. I am not prone to exaggerating and have an analytical approach as I am a qualified professional Electrical Engineer.This is the first time that I have actually seen something like this, although I have seen strange fast moving lights at night. I live close to OR Tambo international airport as well as DENEL semi military aircraft facility.If you require the original photograph please give me an e-mail address to send it to. It is 2.42 MB in size.
