A passenger jet was involved in a near miss with an unidentified flying object above Glasgow in Scotland, according to a report.It said that pilots of the Airbus A320 were flying in clear skies over the city at 13:00 on the day the incident occurred.The plane was flying about 4,000 feet on December 2 last year when the pilot and co-pilot both reported seeing the object about 100 metres away.
An official report into the incident by the UK Airprox Board, which investigates near miss incidents, was unable to establish what the two pilots had seen.
"The object passed directly beneath before either of the crew had time to take avoiding action or had 'really registered it', although they were both agreed that it appeared blue and yellow, or silver, in colour with a small frontal area but that it was 'bigger than a balloon'," the official report said.A controller at the airport reported seeing nothing on radar and further radar analysis revealed nothing either.The report said the object was therefore unlikely to have been a helicopter, fixed-wing aircraft or balloon because they would have shown up on radar.
