BBC News – Airliner ‘had narrow miss with UFO’

Posted by dandare on May 1, 2013

The bbc has an article mentioning that:

A passenger aircraft had a narrow miss with an unidentified object over Glasgow, a report has revealed.

The Airbus A320 was making its final approach to Glasgow Airport on 2 December when an object passed about 300ft underneath it.

The pilot of the aircraft said the risk of collision with the object, which did not show up on radar, had been “high”.

Also from news.com.au it mentions Airbus comes close to crashing with ufo over Glasgow .

the Sun has Passenger plane seconds away from collision with UFO .

Stv.com says  Passenger plane involved in near miss with UFO near glasgow airport .

There are quite a few reports from the media worldwide about this event, which took place on 2nd December 2012, many of which are just repeating the same information.

Not sure what to make of this sighting, however for now it is definately a UFO (it would help if we knew what type of radar was being used though-i believe there is both primary and secondary radar). Hope certain media do not try to hype this up too much, but i will not be holding my breath.

UPDATE  the daily mail has slightly more information here .

The incident happened on December 2 last year over Baillieston, 13 miles east of Glasgow Airport, at around 3500ft.

more information on primary and secondary radar can be found here .

Scottish UFO mystery: Little Billy loses grip on helium shark then pilots report near miss with blue and silver object ( Daily Record)

Shark-UFO-1864886Around the same time, little Billy Orsmond lost grip of his prized 6ft-long helium-filled shark toy and watched it fly into the air, never to be seen again.

Billy’s dad, James, 25, of Baillieston, said last night: “I saw the Record story and just about fell over.

“The report said the object was blue and yellow and silvery. I just thought, ‘Aw naw’ because that was the colour of Billy’s remote control shark and it went missing round about the time of the incident.

“Billy only had the toy for a couple of weeks. It cost about £15 from Argos but the shark was big and would probably look bigger in the sky. We’d just had it re-filled with helium before this incident happened. At the time, I thought that was why it flew out his hands and into the sky.
