Non-existent is calling the pilot a liar.  UFO is a fair term to use when you don't know what it is, assuming it's an alien space vehicle is where it gets stupid.

How can you collide with an object that doesn't exist?

Good to hear that our commercial A320's can outmaneuver alien technology.

Bad to hear that aliens are such awful pilots that they didn't see an A320 coming at them. I bet it's legal for them to talk on their cell phones!

Ours come down more than theirs do though.  Also I would sooner have their technology than our pile of primitive highly dangerous junk.

Maybe...but if it's that good then the only other answer is that they drink and drive...  NOT good in ANY species!  :w00t:

Do you think maybe that's because we Earthlings fly 80,000 planes every day?

And maybe because they fly 0 flying saucers every day because they don't exist?

Already been posted a while ago... I thought it was a familiar story when I read the pilot felt the need to duck..

Quote from OP

The report states: “(The captain) 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.”

Poor pilot can't tell the difference between a weather balloon and a UFO?

there are more of ours in the sky.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

So you'll be turning down the hip replacement surgery you may inevitably need, or a heart/lung/kidney transplant? Or dialysis? Or the many live saving drugs you may well one day need?

fair enough

Holy crap

You're not honestly suggesting it was an aliens spaceship are you?

Good God man, is anything not an alien spaceship?
