Commercial Jet in Near Miss With UFO Over Scotland -

An Airbus 320 figured in an almost mid-air collision with a UFO over at Baillieston on the outskirts of Glasgow, Scotland according to reports.


The passenger plane, which could sit up to 220 people, was said to be just seconds away and about 300 feet close from crashing into the flying object as it approached the Glasgow Airport in Scotland.

Members of the UK Airprox Board who investigate reports of near misses have yet to offer conclusive findings on the incident.

The aircraft's pilot was evidently stunned as he reported to the air traffic control officers the imminent risk of collision with a "blue and yellow" object passing below the Airbus 320.

"We just had something pass underneath us quite close. Have you got anything on in our area," the pilot asked the control tower.



The air traffic officials said they got nothing on radar and were not communicating with any traffic either.The passenger plane, which could sit up to 220 people, was said to be just seconds away and about 300 feet close from crashing into the flying object as it approached the Glasgow Airport in Scotland.

The air traffic officials said they got nothing on radar and were not communicating with any traffic either.

"A glider could not be discounted but it was felt unlikely that one would be operating in that area, both due to the constrained airspace and the lack of thermal activity due to the low temperature.

Also, the board considered that a hang-glider or para-motor would be radar significant and that space and atmospheric conditions likewise precluded them, as in the case of para-gliders or parascenders.

"Members were unable to reach a conclusion as to a likely candidate for the conflicting aircraft and it was therefore felt that the Board had insufficient information to determine a cause or risk."

The Airbus 320 involved in the incident has still not been accounted for which airline it belongs.

There are several airlines that fly A320 from the Glasgow Airport.



The Airprox report included a transcript of the conversation that took place between the aircraft and the controller at 12:55:
A320: "Glasgow Approach [A320 C/S]"
EGPF: "[A320 C/S] pass your message"
A320: "Er yeah we just had something pass underneath us quite close [1255:30] and nothing on TCAS have you got anything on in our area"
EGPF: "Er negative er we've got nothing on er radar and we're n- not talking to any traffic either"
A320: "Er not quite sure what it was but it definitely er quite large [1255:40] and it's blue and yellow"
EGPF: "OK that's understood er do you have a an estimate for the height"
A320: "Maybe er [1255:50] yeah we were probably about erm four hundred to five hundred feet above it so it's probably about three and a half thousand feet."
