UFO Crashes in Zirakpur (Punjab, India)
The Tribune ^ | April 1, 2011 | Mona

Posted on 03/31/2011 4:04:09 PM PDT by SoftwareEngineer

Chandigarh, March 31 In a startling development an unidentified flying object said to be carrying “aliens” crash landed near Zirakpur in the early hours of Friday morning. Estimated to be the size of five cargo ships, this elliptical object that emitted an “intense white light encircled the fields before it went down with a thud. No one is believed to have been killed or injured and the area has been cordoned off by a large contingent of the Punjab police that has been rushed to the site.

Right after the crash, radio signals were severely disrupted with cellphones going off the air for several minutes. Experts from the department of space and the Atomic Energy Commission, sleuths from the Research & Analysis Wing (RAW) and crack commandos of the army’s special forces are believed to be on their way to the site.

Top government officials said the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA), the US space agency, had been informed and senior scientists were expected to arrive at the scene soon.

The Bureau of Paranormal Research & Extra Terrestrial Activities in Denver, Colorado immediately released reports of some “alien spacecraft” signals being detected in the area of the Indian subcontinent. A bureau team is expected to arrive in the city in a special jet on Thursday.

“It is already tomorrow in India.”

Probably temporal displacement caused by UFO.

First they say its the size of five cargo ships then ...
-
Noted scientist Yash Pal(real person) said the UFO could probably be a “reconnaissance ship” and that there could be more such UFOs on the way. “The size of the ship that crashed in Punjab is small. It means it’s an offshoot vehicle. The mother ship could be nearby,” he warned.

Is this for real? I looked for any signs of satire, humor, etc., but couldn’t find any. Is this publication valid?

It's probably just a couple of teasers.

"Teasers are usually rich kids with nothing to do. They cruise around looking for planets which haven't made interstellar contact yet and buzz them."

"Buzz them?" Arthur began to feel that Ford was enjoying making life difficult for him.

"Yeah", said Ford, "they buzz them. They find some isolated spot with very few people around, then land right by some poor soul whom no one's ever going to believe and then strut up and down in front of him wearing silly antennae on their heads and making beep beep noises. Rather childish really."

The newspaper (Tribune) is India’s most respected English daily and has been publishing for over a 100 years.

However, India being British.. has a weird sense of humor. A normally dry and very high end newspaper like The Tribune will think nothing about publishing a “stunt” article for April 1

...at least that is what I think this is... could be real..and then the jokes on me..

THX.

Will check it out.

My relative insisted we had crash teams that could go

instantaneously to any spot on the globe to clean up such crashes.

Craft that large very very very rarely crash, even in a controlled forced landing.

Interesting that it’s purportedly happened at this time.

Will be interesting to see what thranspires therefrom.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
