Nothing wrong in what you say at all, it could be all and everything of what you say, indeed that's what the media jumped at and embellished upon. But it didn't start out that way, and as for the explorer team they didn't embellish upon it themselves, the team leader actually said he thought it was a natural formation. The only thing they did speculate on was a possible Russian round ship, and that was soon discounted due to size, and other factors. They have already found elsewhere what is thought to be a Swedish flagship the 'Mars' also last year, but as yet have not gone further there, so they have a lot in the itinerary to go on with.
The aircraft size still stands, you can make nothing of dimensions from the photos.
The team did play into the notion of it being a UFO .. even after it was revealed to be a "stone" they still used certain terms that played into the idea it could be a craft.. they referred to the trail of sediment as a "runway" even.. I think the hype got way too high and they went along for the ride.. now it's trying to control the disappointment .. the facebook page is filled with people dedicated to the UFO theory and flat out attacking people who suggest otherwise .. they don't want to accept the fact it's probably just an unusual formation.. when really that is exciting in and of itself .. that's what happens when expectations get too high

Actually, if I get creative, I can say that if this was a meteor, and since meteor's travel through space, it's LIKE a spaceship. I mean, earth is LIKE a spaceship. So it's pretty darn close to a spaceship. I wonder where it came from? Is it native to our solar system?
Really, there isn't much this thing could have been. We have tons of examples all across the world of geologic formations and meteor impacts. The odds were heavily leaning in that direction for anybody caring to look. How many examples do we have of alien spaceships or ancient manmade spaceships? I kept telling myself that anybody in the sciences in this field (geologic, etc) HAD to have had a good idea what this was. If it truly was a spaceship or manmade in origin, my opinion is we would have been hearing about it for a while when all this began last year. My guess is that when actual scientists saw the sonar images they were given the strong impression it was geologic (volcanic, meteor, etc). From that, my wager was always that this was probably something natural.
When I say 'geologic', the term is loosely used. What I mean is a natural process that occurs without the direct involvement of intelligent lifeforms.
I had a thought that this was something being dragged across the sea floor by the rebounding (or growing) glaciers. This only happened some 10,000-30,000 years ago - so recently.
It's possible there were fossilized ET organisms buried within the meteor.... If that were the case then this is the biggest irony ever. It's a natural ET spaceship!!!! It would be comical.

Swedish explorers have put to rest speculation of a spaceship at the bottom of the Baltic -- but they're adding fuel to the ‘what is it’ mystery of this deep-sea object anyway.
Digital pictures FoxNews.com has obtained from the team show that the object, located beneath the waves of the Baltic between Sweden and Finland, is some sort of “natural, geological formation,” Peter Lindberg, the leader of the Ocean Explorer team, told FoxNews.com.
“It’s not obviously an alien spacecraft. It’s not made of metal,” the scientist said. Lindberg concedes that it could be an alien space ship -- if the aliens decided to make their vessels out of meteor-like rocks. “Who says they had to use metal?” he joked. “This trip has raised a lot of questions.”

Some sort of neutral formation what an explanation trying to play down that Its a UFO i guess.
