In the wee hours of the night, something unusual unfolded over Gaziantep, Turkey. An unidentified object hovering in the airspace near Gaziantep Airport forced the grounding of all flights, creating a whirlwind of uncertainty and excitement that lasted for nearly half a day. This fascinating episode marks one of the most recent and prominent incidents involving Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), a subject increasingly receiving attention worldwide.
Gaziantep Airport, located near one of the prominent holiday destinations in Turkey, came to a sudden and unexpected halt following reports of an unidentified object appearing on the radar of two commercial airplanes. With the strange object detected at approximately 9,000 feet, or 2,743 meters, air traffic control had no option but to ground flights until they could discern what was happening.
The intrigue didn’t end there. The mysterious object wasn’t just visible on aircraft radar systems but was also independently confirmed by air traffic controllers at Gaziantep. The fact that the UAP was detected from multiple sources adds a layer of credibility to the incident that is often absent in many such reports.
The fallout from the incident was immediate and substantial. All incoming flights destined for Gaziantep were diverted to Şanlıurfa and Adana Airports. Throughout the course of the night, a total of 26 flights, comprising of 13 departures and 13 arrivals, were grounded at Gaziantep Airport.

Airports utilize a system called NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) to provide timely warnings about potential hazards, works, services, or methods that could affect flight operations. In this situation, Gaziantep Airport State Airports Authority (DHMI) did not immediately release a NOTAM, promising an official statement in the coming hours. This created a tense atmosphere as hundreds of passengers found themselves in an indefinite holding pattern.
After 12 grueling hours of waiting and assessing the situation, operations at Gaziantep Airport resumed. The authorities determined that the risk of collision with the mysterious object, which had stirred panic and curiosity, had passed.
This incident occurred amidst a growing global interest in UAP. As governments worldwide acknowledge the existence of UAP, leading experts are exploring the potential origins and implications of these phenomena. Just hours before the Gaziantep incident, Dr. Garry Nolan, a U.S. Government advisor and a respected professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, made a revelation at an international conference in New York. He claimed that the U.S. has retrieved wreckage from crashed UFOs and even attempted to reverse-engineer these unknown crafts. Dr. Nolan expressed his confidence that extraterrestrial intelligence has not only visited Earth but has been here for a long time.
While Gaziantep is not the most frequented airport for British travelers due to its close proximity to the Syrian border, this incident has undoubtedly captured the attention of the millions who visit Turkey each year. As these unidentified aerial phenomena continue to create intrigue, incidents like the one at Gaziantep Airport become crucial in unfolding the growing narrative surrounding UAP. The quest for understanding these unknown objects in our skies continues, turning every such event into an essential piece of a larger, still-unsolved puzzle.
