The Curious Case of the Disappearing Aircraft

A Tale from the G20

Over the course of 3 days (26-28 June 2010) the G20 summit was held in Toronto, Ontario. Security had been heightened to the Nth degree. Restrictions were imposed in the immediate airspace and Canadian and United States' military and security forces were on standby for any eventuality. Here is the Advisory that was issued prior to the Summit:


The G20 Summit in Toronto, Canada

The G20 Summit will take place in Toronto, Canada on June 26 and 28, 2010. The FAA will be placing restrictions and procedures in northwest New York State to complement Canadian restrictions and procedures. Canadian procedures may require aircrew to register with the 2010 G8/G20 Integrated Security Unit (ISU), additional information will be published on the ISU Aviation Planning web site (www.g8-g20isu.ca) when it becomes available. The exact times of the restrictions will be in the published NOTAM. Additional NOTAMs may be issued and it is recommended that operators check NOTAMs frequently.


Under the authority granted by 49 USC, the FAA may apply restrictions within airspace under its jurisdiction. Any person who knowingly and willingly violates these restrictions may be subject to certain criminal and/or civil penalties. Pilots who violate security TFRs or procedures may be intercepted, detained and interviewed by Law Enforcement/Security Personnel. They may also be subject to the following actions:

a) The FAA may take administrative action, including imposing civil penalties and the suspension or revocation of airmen certificates; or
b) The United States government may pursue criminal charges, including charges under Title 49 of the United States Code, Section 46307; or
c) The United States government may use deadly force against the airborne aircraft, if it is determined that the aircraft poses an imminent security threat. (emphasis added - ed.)

All aircraft flight operations are prohibited from the surface to but not including 18,000 MSL, within an area bounded by 433445N/0784954W or the YYZ107035.2, thence clockwise along the 433945N/0793044W or the YYZ097005.2 30NM ARC to 431640N/0790420W or the BUF326028.1, thence northward along the US/Canadian border to the point of the beginning up to but not including 18000 FT MSL. except as specified below.

a. All aircraft entering or exiting the TFR must be on an active IFR or VFR flight plan and must be assigned a discrete beacon code by an Air Traffic Control (ATC) facility and be squawking that code prior to departing within or entering the TFR. Aircraft may not loiter.

b. Emergency/life saving flight (air ambulance/law enforcement/firefighting), military operations and other approved operations must call the HQ DEN Air Traffic Coordinator at 202-493-5107 prior to operating within the TFR. No flight plan is required for these operations in the US portion of the G20 Airspace

c. Aircraft operating within this TFR must remain in two-way communications with ATC at all times.

d. DUAT filed VFR flight plans do not meet the security requirements of the G8/G20 Summit and will not be accepted.

e. Aircraft must contact Toronto ACC at least 15 nautical miles prior to entering. Aircraft arriving or transiting from the east are to contact Toronto ACC on frequency 133.4 Aircraft arriving or transiting from the west are to contact Toronto ACC on frequency 119.3.

f. In addition to Canadian procedures, all VFR operators departing US airspace and entering the G20 airspace must file a VFR flight plan with a FSS at least 2 hours in advance. Pilots must contact the London Flight Information Centre at 1- 866-541-4104 at least 60 minutes prior to the proposed departure time to receive a transponder code.

g. The following operations are not authorized within this TFR: flight training, practice instrument approaches, aerobatic flight, glider operations, parachute operations, ultralight, hang gliding, balloon operations, agriculture/crop dusting, animal population control flight operations, banner towing operations, sightseeing operations, model aircraft operations, model rocketry, and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).

Full Text of FAA Advisory

This map shows the airspace restrictions and jurisdictions:

So, all was going according to plan in the city of Toronto. Airspace was safe, Lake Ontario had also been secured with vigilance being provided both by Canadian and U.S. agencies. The city had quite its share of other security issues during the day on the Saturday, 26th June, as some troublemakers (the Black Bloc was cited) had decided to set fire to police cruisers and cause as much property damage as they were able.

The skies had been remarkably quiet though due to the imposed flight restrictions. That was until just after 20.00h when a call was overheard by an emergency services personnel in Orangeville that NORAD had issued an alert regarding a "possible unknown aircraft" in the airspace over Orangeville. Orangeville is approximately 35 NM north west from where the summit was located in downtown Toronto.

Shortly thereafter, residents in the town of Orangeville were suddenly bombarded by loud military aircraft flying low over their rooftops and doing WNW to ESE passes over the southern part of the town in the area of the Caledon Lake Forest Conservation Area.

This map shows the path of the jets and indicates where the
witnesses who reported the event to me were located:

Here is an image (Google Earth) showing the type of terrain in the area:

Here is the report that appeared in the local Orangeville Banner newspaper
the next day, the 27th June 2010:

CF-18 fighter planes investigate Orangeville airspace

So, it would appear from this report that the 2 military jets were scrambled on a NORAD alert when a possible "unknown aircraft" was detected on radar. Subsequently the unknown aircraft just seemed to disappear off the radar. Assumedly the CF-18s were then called off the hunt, and all returned to rural peace and quiet.

However, there had been an interesting little occurrence in the same vicinity the night prior to the scramble. A witness who was located just south of Orangeville made this comment on a forum today, Saturday, 3rd July, 2010 about an object that had been seen:

On June 25, 2010, I was hanging out with the neighbours next door having a bonfire when we spotted this exact same thing except it was in the sky so we had no idea how big/how far away it was. If you hold a loonie at arms length, it was about that big in the sky. It was about 10:30pm and witnessed by 3 people for about 2-3 minutes south of Orangeville, Canada. This is the first time I've seen anything that could be described as a "UFO". I checked the web the next day and found nothing about it from anyone else but this weekend the Orangeville paper reported fighter planes in the area on June 26 sent by NORAD looking for an "unidentified aircraft". Very strange.

Also, prior to the summit, a report had been made to John Hayes' website UFOINFO regarding some strange lights that had been seen on the north west side of Orangeville:

For the past five nights I've notice a strange, bright light northwest of Orangeville, Ontario, Canada.
I first noticed the light on Monday, June 14, 2010, at 10 PM, then again the very next night in the same location.
On Thursday, June 16, 2010, at 10:30 PM, I saw the light once again, but this time it was a little different. I was watching the light slowly move from side to side, then drop below the tree line.
The light then went to the right and stopped.
Just before I went inside for the night, I saw the light drop what looked like a bright white flare.
On June 18, 2010, I went outside to see if the light would be there again and it was. This time I had a small flashlight with me, I would blink the light on and off to see if I would get any reaction.
The reaction I received wasn't what I expected, the light slowly started to go north until it was out of sight.

Hey John,
I seen the light again last night (June 20 2010, from 9:52pm to 11pm) lasting for about an hour then continued going north

Some years ago, in 2002 in fact, a crop formation had been reported in the area just outside of Orangeville, and the owner of the property had mentioned that "dancing lights" had been seen in the vicinity of where the field design had manifest.

Recent Reports of Anomalous Craft in the Orangeville area

23rd February 2012 - Orangeville, Ontario

Triangular craft witnessed close to Caledon Lake Conservation Area. 3 witnesses. Silent, slow-moving craft seen above their vehicle. White, non-blinking lights were seen on the points and a red-orange light in the centre. Altitude estimated at less than 1000 feet. Craft then turned without banking and accelerated into the distance over the conservation area.

26th April 2012 - Orangeville, Ontario

This all happened on April 26th on my way to a friends house.

Basically, I was driving Northbound on Highway 10 from Orangeville, when I noticed an Amber flickering circular light ahead... It was stationary and appeared to be just watching the cars. At first, it thought it was just an extremely bright star with the sunset. It wasn't much higher than the tree tops... probably only by about 100 feet. I pulled down 15th Sideroad of Mono, and stopped to try and get some pictures of it. It was still stationary. My iPhone's space was full, so I couldn't take any pictures. So I was trying to delete stuff, and that's when it began to move.

It started to slowly come towards me, and crossed the road in front of me, by probably only 20 feet ahead. I could make out the shape and everything. It was almost like a triangle, or pyramid of some sorts, but I could kind of see through it. There were some pulsating lights on the back of it, and it had that amber aura to it, which appeared to be weaker the closer it got. I tried flicking my car headlights in sync with the pulsating lights, to see if it would gauge a reaction... it didn't. Not to mention, there was absolutely NO SOUND from it. I've lived here all my life, and would always look to the skies, and you can always tell the difference from a plane and anything else.

Anyway, it crossed the road and continued to go south, very slowly, below the clouds. That's when a second one appeared out of the clouds and began following it relatively close behind. I didn't think that Planes would do that, considering how slow they were going, how low they were, as well as how dangerous turbulence is.

As they continued on, and they were about a kilometer or so away, I saw another light begin to ascend from the tree line south east of where I was stopped. It looked as if it was coming out of Hockley Valley. Anyway, it rose up above the tree line, and then dipped back down, and eventually rose again and continued to move south east.
