AVIATION experts were last night no nearer to identifying the unidentified flying object that disrupted air traffic over east China for an hour on Wednesday.
An investigation team, comprising police and aviation officials, were still trying to identify the UFO that was spotted over Zhejiang Province.
"No conclusion has yet been drawn," Wang Jian, head of air traffic control with the Zhejiang branch of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, said yesterday.
There was speculation the UFO might have been a private aircraft, based on the increasing number of privately-owned aircraft in the province. But an industry insider who declined to be named yesterday ruled that out.
Wang said the private plane was "just a guess."
Xiaoshan Airport in Hangzhou was closed after the UFO was detected at about 9pm on Wednesday, and some flights rerouted to Ningbo and Wuxi airports.
