Every time a plane crash story makes international news, you can rest assured that the theory of it being caused by a UFO isn't far behind.
The tragic crash of EgyptAir MS804, which went down while flying from Paris to Egypt, is no exception. This time around, however, there might actually be some evidence to support wild claims of extraterrestrial intervention. Conspiracy theorists seem to think so, anyway.
While the cause of the crash is still under investigation, what we do know is that about three hours into the flight, smoke or fog was detected inside the aircraft. Then the plane suddenly disappeared from radar.
Pieces of the wreckage have continued to wash up on the Egyptian coastline.
While investigators are still trying to figure out what happened, a new theory has emerged involving a UFO.
This week, Turkish media reported that two Turkish Airlines pilots claimed to have seen a UFO with green lights pass them while they were flying near the area where EgyptAir MS804 went down.
"An unidentified object with green lights passed two to 3,000 feet above us. Then it disappeared. We are guessing that it was a UFO," one pilot told the press.
However, these pilots were over land near Istanbul when they spotted the craft. There are also inconsistencies with the timing of their sighting that throw their whole story into question. Still, it might be worth considering.

I think it's still too early to declare any official UFO involvement. Hopefully, we'll get some more insight into what exactly happened up there when the black boxes are recovered.
