A number of expats have come forward to claim that a series of low-flying military jets that awoke the Costa del Sol may have been chasing a UFO.
The residents of Benahavis and Estepona – where a trio of fighter jets undertook their mysterious 5am sortie on Easter Sunday – believe that the planes may have been tailing an “alien craft”.
While the authorities refused to comment on the incident, the Olive Press has been inundated with calls and emails from concerned residents.
One British reader, who asked to remain anonymous, told the paper this weekend: “It was terrifying. They were clearly tailing this strange-looking craft.
“I cannot describe what it was, but it was long and thin and had flashing lights. It was definitely not a plane or helicopter.
“It made a very strange sound and moved slowly before suddenly shooting off at top speed.”

In an earlier piece, we find that online forums were the source of conspiracy theories and talk of UFOs. In the early reports, a mystery object was not mentioned. Hmm. Suspicious.
The incident came just days before another mystery incident over Bath, in the UK, where locals claim to have seen a long thin-shaped craft chased by military jets.
The Bath incident was a sonic boom from military jets. Only The Sun connected it with UFOs. (Surprised?) Are the two stories connected as suggested? Yeah, probably. People saw a nifty but crazy connection to military jets chasing a UFO and it grew online and thanks to the sensationalistic press.
Or, you know. We are being invaded and no one is telling us. I think we are being invaded by evil mind monsters toying with our imagination.
