Airline passenger records UFO video over Liverpool

An airline passenger allegedly recorded video of a UFO through the plane’s window.

The plane and the UFO were reportedly flying over Liverpool, England. The roughly two-minute video shows the mysterious bright UFO in the clouds, flying along the same trajectory as the plane. Although the UFO initially looks like an ordinary aircraft in the distance, it later makes an incredibly sudden descent.

The speed at which the object changes its flight path and descends rules out known aircraft. Some believe the object is simply a bird. But birds generally don’t fly 400 m.p.h. like a commercial airliner.

It’s unclear who shot the video. And it’s also unclear why this video is currently making its rounds in the media (Yahoo!, AOL, etc.), because the video first surfaced back in 2012.

Unfortunately, there are red flags indicating that this video is nothing more than a hoax.

The first indication that the video is a creation is the cameraperson’s lack of response and failure to move the camera at all when the UFO displays its most incredible behavior. But the most damning evidence is the video’s apparent source–the YouTube channel O7TV belonging to a group called Audio World Color.

This channel posts CGI videos of incredible things like dragons, mermaids, and even a landed UFO.

The only real information this channel provides with its videos is, “Video Agency of Audio Color World own all distribution rights of the uploaded videos on our YouTube channel. If you like to use videos for uploads or commercial use please contact ‘info@audiocolorwo­rld.com’,” indicating that this channel is a for-profit venture.

It’s incredibly unfortunate that so many people fill the Internet with fabricated UFO videos. It’s also unfortunate that the media and the general public are so easily fooled by these creations. Genuine aerial objects that cannot be identified do fly in our skies. But rarely do the genuine UFOs receive the attention they deserve. And, perhaps that is partially because photos and videos of the truly mysterious objects are rarely as sexy as the fabrications.

  1. Here you are, up in a plane, you are filming (I guess it’s a hope that you might see a real UFO) A UFO shows up in your viewer, but at a distance, but you just keep on filming. Seems to me that if you really saw this thing that you would make some sort of effort to notify the person in back of you and the person in front of you (window side) to confirm your sighting??? like “HEY FOLKS, LOOK A UFO, A UFO, THE WINDOW, A UFO OUT THE WINDOW, LOOK!” Nope, nothing,,,silent like church. Hope you will advise on what your findings and MUFON’s finding is on all this.

    Keep up the great work

  2. Unfortunately it looks like a well-made CGI hoax where they overlaid the ‘UFO’ on top of ordinary footage. There were a few others like this in the 2012 time-frame, such as the famous Jerusalem hoax video.

  3. Major Ed Dames claims the Jerusalem video was not a hoax. Just listened to his interview on Veritas radio, very compelling. This topic has become so diluted with suspect videos people are always divided on their authenticity.

  4. OK I’ve said my bit. If you don’t want to post it. Send me an email, because I do find it frustrating that when you do see or here of something interesting like this you can’t share it without subscribing to twitter.



  5. I have just got back from the pub and heard two accounts of seeing the same thing from the ground at the same time, both witnessed by others. In the Nantwich area, Cheshire. This can not be a camera hoax. We have had many similar reporting’s over the Liverpool Bay area / Irish Sea over that last 10 years. It’s only unusual because it’s on camera from the air in day light.
    I had kind of accepted it was a new aircraft being tested.
    Just as an example of things not being picked up, recorded or filmed. About 5pm in November 11 years ago both me and a neighbor saw a massive meteorite hit home in the irish sea but there was virtually no mention of it in the news or media. It was literally like something out of a disaster movie. Very impressive, bigger and brighter than the recent Russian one. But because it landed in the sea and was not on film. Nobody noticed.
    So how it can be coincidence. Even if the film is fake. The people saw it prior to the film on utube. They were not kids either all middle aged. One an x pilot so he knew the rough height and seize which tied in well with the film. All just a normal Friday night I around here I guess? Is it all because city dwellers can’t see the night sky because of the lighting. I wonder?
