St. Louis’ Radar System 'Sees' Multiple UFOs

Radar Antenna
Sky patrol on duty

     When radar failed at St. Louis’ air traffic control center early Wednesday, Olathe controllers helped watch the skies there for a short time.

     The cause of the problem was unclear. A large flock of migrating birds could be responsible. So could the weather. Whatever happened, the radar in Weldon Spring, Mo., read 3,000 to 5,000 objects flying over the area, overwhelming the system. The center there controls traffic for Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and other nearby airfields.

     The Air Route Traffic Control Center in Olathe took responsibility for St. Louis’ air space for 15 minutes, until controllers there could switch to a backup system.
