A new report has surfaced revealing an unexplained encounter that an airplane pilot had with a UFO this year
LONDON (INTELLIHUB) — A UFO sighting occurred in broad daylight, at around. 6.35pm on July 13 at 34,000ft in the sky. It has only emerged now, following the release of a report, which concluded it was “not possible to trace the object or determine the likely cause of the sighting”.
The report also states that: “He was under the apprehension that they were on collision course with no time to react. His immediate reaction was to duck to the right and reach over to alert the FO (First Officer); there was no time to talk to alert him.”
It adds: “The Captain was fully expecting to experience some kind of impact with a conflicting aircraft.”
The pilot told investigators he believes the object passed “within a few feet” above the jet.
He described it as being “cigar/rugby ball like” in shape, bright silver and apparently “metallic”.
Dr David Clarke, a Sheffield Hallam academic and the UFO consultant for the National Archives, said: “The aviation authorities obviously think this is something they should continue to look into and if you are a regular air traveller, you are likely to agree.”
Dr Clarke, a sceptic on UFO issues, said: “This latest sighting is interesting, because it is detailed and clear. These pilots don’t file these reports for something and nothing. There was obviously something there.”
In 2012, the head of the National Air Traffic Control Services admitted staff detected around one unexplained flying object every month.
