CAA reveals pilot encounters with UFOs

The UK Civil Aviation Authority has recorded several intriguing close encounters over the last decade.
While many of the incidents reported to the CAA by pilots flying over the UK turn out to have conventional explanations, there still remains a number of reports that cannot be so easily explained. Balloons, parachutes and unregistered light aircraft tend to account for the majority of sightings, but there a few that continue to perplex.

In 2010 the crew of an Airbus A319 reported an unidentified craft approximately 50-100ft below them while flying over Bristol. The sighting was communicated to Air Traffic Control but nothing had shown up on their radar. A similar report took place the year before in which a pilot reported a fast moving object passing above him in the opposite direction, again nothing was picked up on radar.

In 2007 two puma helicopters reported mysterious lights in the sky while returning from an oil rig off the coast of Aberdeen. The previous year, a crew from RAF Lyneham near Swindon radioed in to report "conflict between a military aircraft and an UFO whilst inbound to Lyneham at Flight Level 180."

Other incidents include a Boeing 737 reporting "untraced objects" over Norfolk in 2005 and a trio of UFO sighting reports that took place during the spring and summer of 2004.

This one line repeated in every UFO thread sums up the brainless mentality of the average UFO believer. I thought the comment from Zeta Reticulum was meant to be sarcastic ... How did you read it ?

I thought the comment from Zeta Reticulum was meant to be sarcastic ... How did you read it ? Given Zeta's general attitude, I seriously doubt it. Cheers, Badeskov

Given Zeta's general attitude, I seriously doubt it. Cheers, Badeskov Ok, I did not know that. If he was being serious I can see the point.

WHY has no one piped up to say that it's part of the overwhelming evidence of ETH? I'm seriously disappointed!

Does anyone here know of a site where people can talk about these subjects without the personal off topic attacks?

Does anyone here know of a site where people can talk about these subjects without the personal off topic attacks? It's going to continue until they start banning some of these guys. Especially the ones that contribute nothing but said personal attacks and snarky comments.

Its sucks to, cause Im of the mind set that you just dont rat people out. Learned that lesson as early as the school play ground. But seriously I wish someone would make a dozen or so examples outta some folks here.

This one line repeated in every UFO thread sums up the brainless mentality of the average UFO believer. Actually, what that continual reference shows is the complete ease the US military has in calming the fears of the majority of sheep. it don't take much

Interesting headline to the article Conflict between military aircraft and UFO among 11 reports to CAA The MOD are not meant to be investigating UFO's anymore, so we are told. Surely they have investigated to some degree, maybe not little green man but they are still investigating.
