We hear more and more today about near misses of airplanes, when courageous air traffic controllers are willing to come forward with this often hidden information. One would think that with so many thousands of flights in the air at any one time, a collision would almost be inevitable. On rare occasion, however, we hear of an airplane having a near miss with something other than another airplane - sometimes a UFO is mentioned as the culprit.
One of the best documented cases of an incident of this type occurred in the United Kingdom in 1995. A Boeing 737 and a UFO nearly collided during the plane's approach to Manchester Airport on January 6. The day was dark, but visibility was 10 kilometers, when the Boeing began to approach the airport at about 9 miles southeast flying at 4,000 feet altitude.
The pilot and his first officer saw the object almost simultaneously. It was lighted, and on their right hand side. They could clearly see the UFO through the windscreen and side window as it flew directly toward them.
The first officer instinctively ducked: the object was so close to hitting the Boeing 737. Although the object was only visible for a few seconds, the first officer was certain he saw a dark object, wedge-shaped, with a stripe down its side. The object never changed or attempted to change its course.
