STV Glasgow reports on untraceable blue and yellow orbs as new hazard of air travel:
A passenger plane was involved in a near miss an unidentified flying object, two pilots have reported. The blue and yellow UFO came within 300ft of the Airbus 320 on December 2 as the plane approached Glasgow Airport.
The UK Airprox Board – which investigates near misses in the skies – heard the incident had taken place at around 3500ft. Both pilots on the flight reported seeing the UFO “loom ahead”.
The board heard the object appeared blue and yellow or silver in colour with a small frontal area but that it was “bigger than a balloon”.
The board said: ““Investigation of the available surveillance sources was unable to trace any activity matching that described by the A320 pilot. Additionally there was no other information to indicate the presence or otherwise of activity in the area. Members were unable to reach a conclusion as to a likely candidate.”
