I saw looked like a strip of white wave breaking on the
water surface. After about 2 minutes and maybe a thousand
meter from where we first noticed it, a grey/white craft
broke out of the water right where the white wave was
and it continued to move in the same direction, except
this time, it was flying in the air.

vessel was white/metalic grey in colour. It had a gently
curved top and a round large ball-like bottom. The closest
that I can describe it is that it looks fairly close to
the one shown in Photo353.htm of this site. To me the
most prominent feature of the vessel was the round ball-like
was difficult to estimate its size when it came out of
the water, because of the distance, but it was definitely
a lot bigger that the strip of water that we saw, and
I estimated the strip to at least 6 or 8 meters."
near the airport."
Description and Details:
the morning of Saturday October 8, 2005, my wife and I
dropped my 18-year-old daughter at school. It was about
6:50 a.m. and we decided to go to a nearby beach to wait
for the shops to open so that we can have our breakfast.
We reached the beach just about 7 a.m."
at the beach, we sat on the concrete steps facing the
sea to the west. It was 7:05 a.m. and the sun was already
shining very brightly when my wife noticed something unusual
on the water about 500 meters off shore and she brought
my attention to it. What I saw looked like a strip of
white wave breaking on the water surface and I told her
instead of moving towards shore, the 'wave' was moving
across the water parallel to the beach, away towards our
then asked me whether it was a dolphin instead, but I
told her it was moving too fast for even a dolphin and
probably way too big. The 'white strip of wave' by my
estimation, was at least about 8 to 9 meters long. It
was definitely not a boat either, because what I could
see was just a strip of water breaking on the surface
and nothing above."
the beach that we were at was right in the centre of a
gentle bay with the Kota Kinabalu International Airport
about 3 kilometers away to our left at the end of the
bay. The moving strip of white water was moving towards
the airport at a speed of maybe about 30 or 40 Kmh."
about 2 minutes and maybe a thousand meter from where
we first noticed it, a grey/white craft broke out of the
water right were the white wave was and it continued to
move in the same direction, except this time, it was flying
in the air."
what I could see, I could not make out any conventional
means of propulsion that I know of, no propeller, no rotors,
no jet exhaust and completely silent from where I was.
While at the distance I could hear the planes taking off
and landing earlier, this flying vessel was totally silent."
flew straight towards the direction of the air strip and
it flew low, barely clearing the tree tops nearby and
it went across the western end of the runway below the
approach window which was facing the sea."
another couple of minutes or so, the flying vessel disappeared
in the distance. It never headed towards the skies, but
in fact, disappeared somewhere among the distant hills."
really could not find any explanation for this sighting
that both my wife and I saw. Unfortunately, I did not
bring my camera and I do not have any proof whatsoever
of this sighting. There were also no other witnesses although
there were a few people jogging at the beach when this
happened, but no one was looking out to sea while they
jogged. I guess I was too shocked with astonishment to
hail any of the joggers to bring their attention to the
sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or
have no explanation whatsoever."
