For me I'm still withholding judgment, but wanted to comment that the gravest error for anybody viewing the video and reading the thread is to over-analyze it.
It seems some people will want to believe — or DISBELIEVE — so badly that the evidence is hacked up purely for the joy of hacking itself! The forum discussion then becomes the only true reality while the subject matter falls to second fiddle. It's no less than "he said she said." Forget the UFOs!
No doubt any extraordinary video demands extraordinary scrutiny. Yet it's funny (in a pathetic way) how people will follow along with just about any theory all the same, whether bashing or supporting something.
If it's genuine, even as a genuine anomaly, I feel sorry for the eyewitnesses. Welcome to the independent world of sheeple.
A building in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean ? Yea ok

On a related side-note I am surprised about your displayed skepticism here in this thread (because this "sighting" actually stumped ME at least for some hours) - your skepticism here kinda contrasts your past thread history greatly

Maybe it's been said already but they are definitely not at 30,000 feet. At the start you can see that the landing flaps are partially lowered to around 15-20 degrees which means it's probably only around 3000 feet high and landing.
No I'm not a pilot, but aviation is my profession and I can say with 100% certainty that this is the case, it was landing and that is a light breaking through low level cumulous clouds.
His actions, comments, original story, inconsistent updates, removal of countless comments..... spoke volumes and just nailed this as a hoax all by itself.

I'm a pilot. ATC would have no problem letting two planes fly that close. The minimum is 1000ft horizontal and vertical separation. RVSM. The problem is it's not a plane.
Second, the YouTube description says they are at 30,000ft. No they are not. First off, the flaps of the aircraft are out showing they are clearly in descent for landing, and also you hardly find those types of clouds at 30,000.
With that said, yeah a blue light attached to some sort of man made structure poking out of clouds is strange, but it COULD be a snow plough on top of a mountain ridge...
Also ALL aircraft warning lights used on buildings and structures ALL AROUND THE WORLD to warn aircraft of such terrain are red, and most blink. Never blue. Blue is not used in aviation for any purpose.edit on 4-1-2013 by kidcraig because: (no reason given)
