1] what you would do is utterly irrelevant, as is what i, my cat, or OJ Simpson would do.
2] yes, there are lots of airports in the world. this is also irrelevant but well done on noticing.
3] while zoom is involved in that gif you linked, i think you will find what makes the trick is actually perspective.
since the video on the OP was not wildly switching position and zoom i will have to make this a third 'irrelevant'.
4] yes, it was a low quality recording and youtube doesn't change that for the better.
however just being filmed in low quality does not cause planes to do things that planes do not and can not do.
i'm sorry but yet again; totally irrelevant.
perhaps you should look at the frames Xoanon kindly pulled that actually
and discuss some of that.

We've narrowed down the location of the sighting (sort of, due to 20 y/o incomprehensible typing skills) and we have some pictures of the objects in daylight. We've almost eliminated the proximity of the airport being no where near the sighting with some reluctance of some members. To be expected of course. The event went on through the night for about 6 hours and the footage we see is only a small portion of what went on out there.

It's simple if people say these are not aircraft because of what they think they see on video, well we know the following if aircraft are travelling towards or away in the direction the camera is facing they can appear stationary.
We know for a fact that the video isn't of the best of quality and that due to camera,lens,zoom,light level many things can look strange once a video is encoded and dumped on the net.
I will link to this video again do you really think this plane is appearing/disappear or it's a video encoding/ lighting issue.
So planes can seem to disappear
The simple fact that is this area is surrounded by airports and that its more likely to be aircraft (sorry to burst your bubble) than MOG from ZOG out for a day trip with the lads
What would have been even better was if the young lady gave denfinite info of where this was taken from and direction the camera was pointing.edit on 24-2-2012 by wmd_2008 because: (no reason given)
