Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Well no one knows. An aeroplane had a near miss with a strange object.    

An official report has just been released stating that on December the 2nd an Airbus A320 plane, that was about to land in Glasgow, nearly collided with another aircraft. No one knows what it was but some people say it was a UFO.

When the pilot radioed back to land they said it was not another plane, so what could it be? The crew described it as blue, yellow and silver with a small frontal area, but “bigger than a balloon”.

The unidentified flying object appeared in front of them, and flew underneath the jet before the pilot had time to react.

The aeroplane was about 300ft away from the item. That seems quite a long way away to you and me but very close for aircraft.

What do you think it was?

    Interesting report Macey.

    The sensible side of me imagines it’s probably something either entering the earth’s atmosphere from space (junk) or perhaps some kind of weather balloon that became untethered.

    The non-sensible side imagines it was some kind of visiting extra-terrestrial popping down to earth say, ‘hello’!!

    Wow. What a fantastic piece of journalism at last somebody realises that the truth is out there.

    Great article Macey! This is just one of the many reasons we should believe that there is other life forms out of Earths atmosphere! Another reason is if we can exist… why cant aliens?
