The Xinhua News Agency, the official government press agency of the Peoples Republic of China, recently reported on a UFO sighting made by a number of journalists, along with government officials and a plane load of passengers.
The sighting took place on February 24 of this year on a Southern Airlines flight which was flying to Nanjing at around 6pm. A group of journalists were socialising during the flight when one of them noticed an unusual luminous object travelling alongside the airplane. At this point the Journalist alerted a number of security officials and the other journalists with whom he was travelling together with. The journalist managed to snap a few photos before the object shot off in a north easterly direction. The object was visible for around one minute.
The witnesses were all stunned by what they saw and started debating whether it was a UFO. Some argued it might have been an airplane. A few minutes later another plane did appear on the horizon and all agreed it had little in common with the unexplainable object they saw and concluded they had witnessed a UFO.
‘Xinhua seems to be taking the UFO phenomena rather seriously lately, perhaps this is the lead up to some form of disclosure by the Chinese Government, who I suspect know a lot’ noted one Chinese ufologist.

Sorry guys, not of alien origin. The picture is of another aircraft heading away and the cloud/vapors you see are the contrails highlighted by the sunlight. I saw a similar pic in a MUFON mag from a few months ago (one of Filer's Files).
I see them all the time when I'm up front driving one of these airliners (which I do for a living).

February 24, by reporter flew to Nanjing, China Southern Airlines plane, because of occupational habits, reporter hand-side camera eyes staring at the ever-changing sea of clouds outside the window, ready to capture the sky's "Wonderland," Suddenly, a luminous body from south to north Express flight, journalist filming side edge say hello fellow journalists and the many City Public Security Bureau with a Comrade watch, This is everyone that had never seen the flying objects. One minutes later, this complex to the north-west direction, soon disappear.
At that time, someone suspected of this plane flying objects are, but 5 minutes later, another scene confirmed that the plane does not matter, because at this time there is an aircraft is in the same direction from south to north flight, plane shape is clearly visible, after everyone found before and after contrast The first one is probably over the UFO.
