Have aliens visited Lakeland?

ICYMI, a viral post from the New York Times recently told the story of five Navy pilots who reported sightings of mysterious flying objects that appeared to “reach 30,000 feet and hypersonic speeds.”

Though no one is entirely sure what the pilots saw, it bolsters a growing fascination with the potential that alien life exists.

According to the National UFO Reporting Center State Report Index, there have been thousands of alien and UFO sightings in Florida, with 60+ in Lakeland alone. The most common cases in Swan City have included reports of glowing orange objects floating across the sky.

Though there are numerous theories surrounding this world-wide phenomenon, one possible reason for the sightings in Lakeland could be due to the activity at Draken International.

Located at Lakeland Linder International Airport (LAL), Draken International owns the world’s largest commercial fleet of tactical ex-military aircraft. (Think Top Gun.)

These 150 fighter jets fly out of LAL and are equipped with subsonic and supersonic radar + prominent orange-red navigation/identification lights on several aircrafts – like the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk + Aermacchi MB 339CB – which could possibly account for what people think to be “hovering orange orbs” in the sky.
