Watch: Virgin Atlantic Plane Overtaken By ‘UFO’ Over Skies Of New York

This is the spooky moment a jumbo jet taking off from New York was seemingly overtaken in the air by a UFO.

The incredible footage shows the Virgin Atlantic plane flying from JFK airport before a mystery object is seen in the distance flying quickly past it.

So far, there doesn’t seem to be any explanation other than that the object is a flying saucer piloted by an alien.

At least, that’s according to Rick from LookNowTV, who insists the person who filmed the clip is not a hoaxer.

He said: “The person that saw this UFO at JFK films planes often and looks to catch UFOs on video…

“I thought this one doesn’t look like a bug or another plane in the background.

“I have no reason to believe this guy is a hoax. It’s really unidentified.”

However, Rick’s theory doesn’t hold water with Brit UFO expert Russ Kellett, who said the object could be “anything”.

He added: “It doesn’t look to be a bird or anything like that but at a different angle it could be anything.

“You can believe in UFOs and be logical about images as well.

“It comes behind from the aeroplane’s tail, you can tell it’s behind but it does move sort of like a bird, when something’s moving when the wings are flapping.

“If it’s moving away, it will give that appearance.”

So if it isn’t a bird, and it isn’t a plane, then it’s Superman, obviously.
