A pilot flying for Turkish Airlines was left scratching his head after spotting and subsequently filming a UFO flying near his aircraft. The puzzling sighting reportedly occurred this past Friday as Atilla Senturk was en route to Istanbul after departing from Cologne. At some point during the journey, the pilot and his crew noticed something strange sharing the airspace with them and Senturk quickly pulled out his cell phone to record the odd aerial interloper.
Posting the video to his Facebook account over the weekend, Senturk marveled to his friends that he and his crew were amazed to see "an incredibly bright celestial body at high altitude" during their flight. "It was very close to us," he noted, "and it was very bright in spite of the sun." Senturk went on to declare, presumably based on his experience as a pilot, that the oddity was not a star or a satellite and marveled that the incident was the first time that he'd ever seen "something like this."
